The WWE is reportedly “looking into” a 2012 claim that Randy Orton exposed himself to the company’s writers and touched himself in front of them.
According to The Wrap, the WWE star is under investigation after former WWE writer Court Bauer said on an old podcast that Orton would “initiate” new writers by pulling out his penis and touching himself in front of them.
The WWE and reps for Orton did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
The 2012 claim resurfaced after a Reddit user re-posted Bauer’s quotes about Orton.
“For every new writer that would show up, he comes in the room puts his hand down his pants, pulls out his d—, touches himself, then says ‘I’m Randy Orton, shake my hand… oh you don’t want to shake my hand? You’re big leaguing me? That’s f—ed up man. Should I tell Vince and Steph you won’t shake Randy Orton’s hand?’”
Look, steroids of a hell of a drug and it can affect a man in a number of ways.
It could either turn you racist like Hollywood Hulk Hogan or it can make you slaughter everyone you know and love like Chris Benoit. OR, it can make you like Randy Orton, where you’re just an asshole who makes strangers touch your dick hand.
There are a looooooot of jobs on this planet.
If you get hired and a coworker takes their genitals out on your first day, that’s it. You don’t go back for day two. It’s over. Print out more copies of that resume and keep it moving. UPS is hiring.
Randy Orton has a history of being a little creepy around the locker room to the female wrestlers so this is the least surprising news of all time. My man likes getting his balls touched. Relatable content, I reckon.
If the WWF writers are treated this way then it totally explains why all of the storylines stink. Any complaints you have about the creative team, look no further than the weird ass hazing rituals and how the writers are treated by the wrestlers.
You want a functional story involving the World Heavyweight Championship that starts in October and rides into Wrestlemania? Well tell Randy Orton to stop holding down the writers and teabagging them so they can do their job.
But we have to remember that this took place in 2012. This was before the big #MeToo movement. We were different people back then. There were no rules in 2012. Everyone said hello with their dicks out. That was standard procedure.
But yea no, fuck Randy Orton.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Randy Orton is probably an awful guy to spend 24 hours with. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
