It seems that Dr Disrespect took aim at Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins following the streamer’s victory in the Apex Legends Twitch Rival tournament on Tuesday, February 12.

Both Dr Disrespect and Ninja competed in the Apex Legends Twitch Rivals tournament, which was broadcast on Twitch with a massive $200,000 prize pool.

While Dr Disrespect teamed with long-time friends Colton ‘Viss’ Visser and Jesse ‘Kraftyy’ Kraft, Ninja decided to team up with Richard ‘KingRichard’ Nelson and recent NRG Esports signing Dizzy - a decision that seemed to rile up The Doc.

Twitch Rivals was the first major Apex Legends tournament.

In the aftermath of the tournament, The Doc posted a Tweet saying that it “felt good to play with my normal crew of friends in Kraftyy and Viss, what a day.”

While the tweet appeared to be nothing more of a celebration of a
successful day, many fans of the streamer believed this was a direct
shot at Blevins who won the tournament while teaming with KingRichard
and Dizzy.

Some viewers were annoyed that Ninja chose to
team with them instead of squading up with people who he normally
streams with, belieiving that he had ditched his regular friends in the
hope of securing victory in the tournament.

It’s hard to tell if Dr Disrespect was being serious with his subtle jabs at Ninja, as it’s possible that the leader of the Champions Club was just leaning into the character that he plays while broadcasting on the platform.

While The Doc may have had a great time playing with Viss and Kraftyy, his team were unable to obtain a high finish at the end of the Apex Legends Twitch Rivals tournament, finishing in fifth place, 32 points behind Saqib ‘Lirik’ Zahid’s Team Pepega.
