The number 1 Super Smash Bros. for Wii U player in the world Gonzalo “ZeRo” Barrios now has a $500 bounty on his head. But I doubt a Samus player will be the one to collect it.

Smash 4 : ZeRo BURNS Dabuz on Twitter


Two of the top Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS players are in a bit of a Twitter war before EVO 2015. Dabuz, which many consider to be the best Rosalina player in the world, took a shot at ZeRo, who is the #1 Smash 4 player in the world. And well…. ZeRo fired right back at him with the burn of the freaking year. You can see the exchange below.

That’s a good ole’ fashioned Inspector Gadget “Wowsers!!” Usually people throw jabs at each other on Twitter when it comes to Smash 4, but ZeRo threw a damn haymaker. Remember, ZeRo beat Dabuz for the APEX 2015 title pretty badly. Dabuz didn’t take a game or set off ZeRo. This should make for a VERY interesting EVO 2015! Thanks to EWNetwork for the link!
