Randy Orton: How My View Of Him Has Changed by Ana_ZackPack


Hello there, little community of this Infamous blog. It’s been awhile since the last time I sent in an article because I’ve been really busy with college. A lot of things have happened since my last piece and when thinking about what I wanted to write about, I seriously had to restrain myself from writing another piece on CM Punk because I don’t want my writing to always be about the same subject. So, I decided to write about another wrestler. A wrestler that used to be my favorite (along with He-Who-WWE-Doesn’t-Name-Anymore) until lately. That wrestler is Randy Orton.
I’m not going to lie, the main reason I liked him at first was because of his remarkably good looks, but over the course of time I came to appreciate his in-ring work and heel charisma. However, since he turned face, he has become rather boring, but this article isn’t about his wrestling persona. This article is about the disappointment I feel lately about his rumored backstage antics and the insulting opinions he shares about his peers, but most importantly, my disappointment about his poor treatment of women. Some of you might think that screwing Kofi Kingston’s push or supposedly being the cause of Mr. Kennedy being fired was bad, but to me, a young woman who is a fan of his, his misogynist behavior is way worst.

You all probably know what he said on a radio interview about Kelly Kelly, exposing her private life and joking about it, while indirectly calling her a slut. Sure, we all heard rumors about Kelly sleeping around before, but Randy shouldn’t patronize her for that. And there’s a list of reasons why he shouldn’t have done it:
– First, because she is a co-worker and no one is supposed to publicly trash their co-workers. Especially if said co-worker is the female face of the company you work for.
– Second, the WWE is a part of a big anti-bullying campaign and to mock someone’s private life can be considered bullying.
– Third, and more importantly, tons of women watch WWE and it is wrong to describe a woman as a whore just because she sleeps with whoever she wants. One thing is to think that about someone who cheats (aka Melina), but even in those cases, it’s a bad insult. Sex is something personal, natural and beautiful, and people who do it shouldn’t be looked upon as trash. Even people who do cheat shouldn’t be trashed publicly because it is their personal choice and we don’t know if that said person had a deep reason for the cheating.
I’m not going to enter in a discussion about the double standards in the world, even though we all know that most people congratulate men who have sex with tons of women, but turn around and insult women who have the same liberty. This isn’t a feminist column, it’s just my point of view about Randy’s attitudes. Returning to my opinion about the Kelly issue, I was also mad at Randy because it isn’t the first time that news about his mistreatment of women appeared on the web.
Amy Weber and Rochelle Loewen, former Diva Search contestants whom WWE gave contracts, also claimed that Randy harassed them, and while that was never proven, Rochelle also mentioned that Randy had vandalized her possessions by pouring baby oil and taking a shit in her bag and Randy himself admitted to the baby oil pouring (but not the rest). What annoys me the most is that Randy was so quick to be judgmental when he is far from being a perfect human being himself.  I don’t even need to base this opinion on rumors… Randy’s interview speaks for itself and shows his arrogance. I know some Randy fans won’t like this, but guess what: I’m also a Randy fan. I might be starting to dislike some of his behavior, but I still love his wrestling legacy, even though I dislike his babyface run. Some are already saying that Randy is so good at being a heel because he is a douche in real life and his behavior is making me, a fan of his, start to agree with those opinions.

    yeah. he’s a douche.

    • July 6, 2011 at 7:02 am

      Douchebag, I’ma fuck you up. Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you up. Lol. That new Limp Bizkit song is awesome.

  2. July 5, 2011 at 7:44 pm

    When Randy Orton was a heel, he was easily my favorite WWE Superstar. During 2008 I really only cared about the superstars from my era like Edge and Jericho and Triple H and Big Show and Shawn Michaels. I didn’t care for any of the post-WWF guys or “new school” guys. But I did start liking Randy Orton. I starting being a fan of him right before he suffered his injury at One Night Stand against Triple H. When Orton returned in late 2008, my interest in him grew. Then, in my opinion, he was the Superstar of the Year in 2009. Orton was so good as a heel that it was no surprise that Orton was the one who turned face at the end of the Legacy feud and not Cody Rhodes or Ted DiBiase. Orton right now is one of the few faces I actually root for but he is not as great as he was when he was a heel. Orton is not my favorite superstar at the moment. Jericho was probably my new favorite before he left. Then it was The Miz. Now my favorite superstar is definitely CM Punk.

    And by the way, nice to see you are writing again. If you do write again in the near future, please consider writing another “Urban Legends” column. That first one you wrote was great!

    • July 6, 2011 at 7:11 am

      When Orton had gotten injured and was forced to vacate the title Triple H ended up winning at No Mercy 2008 he was on fire. I think that’s when I was the biggest fan of his. Or when he punted Vince in the head. Now that was an awesome moment. I also liked his work as the Legend Killer. He used to disrespectfully spit in people’s faces and RKO the fuck out of them. His feud with Foley was awesome and when he RKO’d Hulk Hogan on a car for cock blocking him when he was trying to holler at Brooke was pretty damn funny. Once he started Legacy that’s when he started to become cowardly and that stable was wack. Rhodes and DiBiase weren’t the best henchmen the WWE had to offer and I preferred Legacy when Manu and Sim Snuka were in it. I was disappointed with the stable because alot of guys were supposed to be called up for it and never were. I think this was the time that Teddy Hart was in FCW and they released his ass because of attitude problems and he would go into business for himself and win matches he was supposed to lose. He was awesome in Wrestling Society X and could have been great in WWE. Oh well. So yeah, Orton. I still don’t see him as a face. He’s one of those guys who no matter what role he plays he still has those shady eyes you cannot trust.

      • July 6, 2011 at 11:32 am

        Manu was awesome. Sim Snuka had potential but he wasn’t with the WWE long enough to make an impact. What if he didn’t drop Undertaker on his head at Wrestlemania? Anyway….I liked Sim Snuka better than that Deuce gimmick.

        • July 6, 2011 at 2:03 pm

          Duece and Domino were a pretty good team, back when WWE still gave a fuck about real teams. There’s no reason the can’t bring him and Manu back and team them up with The Uso’s and Tamina since her and Sim are siblings and they all trained under that Headshrinker Afa guy.

      • July 6, 2011 at 2:05 pm

        I don’t think there is any legends out there that can top The Kliq taking a shit in Jerry Lawler’s crown, lol.

  3. July 5, 2011 at 7:51 pm

    Does anyone remember when Kane was in love with Kelly Kelly (I think it was Kane) but Kelly Kelly loved someone else? And then we found out that someone else was Randy Orton? I remember that Randy Orton and Kelly Kelly having a conversation on RAW that went something like this:

    Randy Orton: I don’t love you Kelly Kelly.
    Kelly Kelly: But I thought what we had was special.
    Randy Orton: What? You mean that one night? I used you. You mean nothing to me.

    oh wait I found the video. http://youtu.be/CUFOrRLlUOQ

    That was what Orton was talking about in the video in this article. Speaking of Kelly Kelly, I’m looking forward to the Kelly Kelly vs. Brie Bella match at MITB. If I have to see a divas match, they are two of my favorite divas.

    • Capt. Smooth
      July 5, 2011 at 7:57 pm

      She liked Kane’s “cane”?

    • July 6, 2011 at 7:14 am

      I can’t tell if you are serious about Kelly Kelly vs Brie Bella or you’re just joking, lol. I rather them utilize women like Natalya and Beth Penis than watch The Bellas. At least they don’t just stand around doing nothing anymore so I guess that’s good.

      • July 6, 2011 at 11:34 am

        no I’m actually dead serious. I’m a guy. I think the Bellas and Kelly Kelly are attractive. I’m not much of a technical wrestling fan.

    • Ana_ZackPack
      July 6, 2011 at 10:38 am

      I remember that. But oh well. Btw, are you serious about the Bella vs Kelly? O,o

    July 5, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    I’m sorry, but his RKO “celebration” from about a month ago makes me have to like him…at least a little bit. In all honesty, I’ve heard both good and bad things about him. You really don’t know the total truth unless you talk to the person yourself.

    • July 5, 2011 at 8:09 pm

      Here’s a little story: Orton is the only person I really “marked out” to. When Orton won the WWE Championship last September in Chicago, I acted like I was 10 years old and it was Christmas morning. In fact, if you watch the match on the DVD (it happened at Night of Champions), during the last replay they showed after the match you can barely see me in the background (all you can see is my dark navy blue Chicago Bears #25 jersey) jumping up and down right after Orton hits Sheamus with the game-winning RKO.

    • July 5, 2011 at 9:17 pm

      Smooth, one thing I do respect about Orton is that if he doesn’t like you he’ll tell you to your face instead of calling Vince and complaining *cough*The Rock*cough*

      He rarely has interviews but when he does he takes shots at Cena or The Rock or Triple H. Randy Orton’s not an ass kisser, he just happens to be exactly what Vince wants in a WWE Superstar.

      He’s more of a private and less social person than other WWE Superstars, but that doesn’t mean he’s a bad guy at all.

      • Capt. Smooth
        July 6, 2011 at 5:46 am

        Yeah, he does seem like a private person. It may be more of a personality thing.

    • July 6, 2011 at 7:16 am

      Randy Orton is a thief. First DDP’s Diamond Cutter now Kurt Angle’s Olympic Slam. If I ever see him using The Pedigree, Sweet Chin Music, a Figure Four or the Walls Of Jericho, I will riot.

    • Ana_ZackPack
      July 6, 2011 at 10:41 am

      I tried not to care about the speculations about Orton…I mentioned them, but that doesn’t mean I say they are the truth, I just think they are.

      His douchiness is just something that he appears to be. Maybe Shaman is right and he isn’t bad…he’s just not to good at showing it.

      • July 6, 2011 at 2:08 pm

        He’s a Viper. A snake. A snake is conniving and untrustworthy in nature. I guess the name suits him well.

  5. July 5, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    Capt. Smooth :

    Tony Kegger :

    You’re a lightbulb?

    No! Look above the lightbulb. You can see a dark jersey with the number “25” on it. By the way, those “lightbulbs” feel like a giant heater when you are sitting right next to them like I was. I’m in that same section but a couple rows closer when I’ll be at MITB…I was if they will put the “lightbulbs” in that area again.

    I actually got another screenshot of me on camera during Night of Champions (right in the beginning of the PPV before Tony Chimel introduced the beginning of the opening match).

      Can I have your autograph?

  6. July 5, 2011 at 9:12 pm

    Randy Orton’s badass! He was boring in Legacy, he’s not boring now.

    He spoke the truth then appologized after a lot, he must have got too comfortable with who he was talking to, at least Randy didn’t say who she slept with (that’s for us to guess….Batista)

    Maybe this is why he never does interviews. But really WWE relys on Orton so much that’s he’s basically untouchable at this point. He can say almost whatever he wants and may only get a slap on the wrist becuase WWE punishing him would only punish SD ratings….and they already suck.

    • July 5, 2011 at 9:23 pm

      Yeah I like how Orton’s a badass and no longer a gutless coward like he was when he was a heel.

      All of this Orton talk made me want to look up one of my favorite Orton promos.

      That link is when Orton named Triple H his WrestleMania 25 opponent. Watch the end of the video when Orton talks about giving Stephanie the RKO. I loved that feud.

      • July 5, 2011 at 10:49 pm

        Their Wrestlemaina match was very dissapointing though. I actually stopped paying attention half way through.

        • Capt. Smooth
          July 6, 2011 at 5:49 am

          I still remember when him and Cena had a match with the RAW roster. RKOs EVERWHERE! And the spot where Cena picks up Cody into an RKO was cool as fuck!

        • July 6, 2011 at 11:45 am

          Yes that match was very dissappointing. I hope the Punk-Cena match isn’t a similar letdown. I will say I did enjoy seeing Orton and Triple H hitting their finishers in the first few minutes of the match. I never saw that before and I haven’t seen it happen since.

          • July 6, 2011 at 2:10 pm

            I think the only reason it was considered boring was because they had only faced each other like 50 million times before.

            • July 6, 2011 at 2:42 pm

              No it’s because they added that stupid “if Triple H is DQed, he loses the title” stipulation. They should have just made it a No Holds Barred match.

              • Capt. Smooth
                July 6, 2011 at 4:53 pm

                The worst thing about their WM match was that both were able to do so much better. Maybe, it was just a bad night?

                • July 6, 2011 at 5:33 pm

                  Or we just saw the match 50 million times. That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it.

    July 6, 2011 at 10:50 am

    Well, reading Shaman’s comments, yeah he might not be a bad guy, but maybe he just doesn’t know how to show is ok. Maybe he is misunderstood, sure, but he should be more careful with what he says. There is a way to be honest without being rude.

    I also know that he is technically untouchable, because like him or not he is one of the faces of the WWE. And to me, that is his biggest problem. He got too much backstage power in less than 10 years. Same thing with Batista.

    They both are (or in Batista’s case, was) people that had some conflicts inside and those conflicts sometimes did damage to others. People could say its the backstage power that does this to superstars, but others manage this power rather well. The best example is John Cena. I might think that he is boring and not so good in the ring, but I never saw rumors about him being a douche backstage. I also don’t remember seeing former stars criticizing his backstage behavior. In fact he seems to be a person who gets along with everybody and even stands up for the less fortunate and from time to time, actually puts someone over.

  10. July 6, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    Randy Orton isn’t nice, he conspired to have items stolen from WWE talent in exchange for untraceable weed and guns.

      • July 6, 2011 at 2:16 pm

        Then it was Justin Gabriel’s people. He’s from South Africa and had his friends steal him stuff so he can pawn it and surprise Heath Slater with some new lingerie.

        • July 6, 2011 at 3:31 pm

          He’s gonna buy him a Wendy’s dress then make gay/crossdressing promo where Gabriel goes in the get some Wendy’s….but he ended up getting more than he ordered.

          • July 6, 2011 at 3:33 pm

            That’d be the wierdest promo in the history of WWE.

  11. July 6, 2011 at 6:15 pm

    Or we just saw the match 50 million times. That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it.

    It was fresh to me because I wasn’t watching during the whole “Evolution” era. It was an old rivalry but it went back a few years. It’s like if The Rock decided to feud with Triple H after WrestleMania 28. Sure they have faced each other 100 times but I’d watch that match.

    • July 6, 2011 at 6:33 pm

      Alot of years have gone by that Triple H vs The Rock would be fresh and I would actually rather watch that than The Rock vs John Cena at Wrestlemania 28.

  12. July 6, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    Hey did anyone hear that Punk turned face yesterday? Can’t wait for this Monday if Punk and McMahon are in the ring at the same time. No way Punk gets heel heat this Monday unless Boston people consider Cena their hometown hero.

    • July 6, 2011 at 6:37 pm

      We hate Cena. Last year they had his pic up near TD Bank arena and someone drew a cock in his mouth. When I went to RAW we had the loudest CENA SUCKS chants ever. He’s from West Newbury MA, which is not Boston.

      Its sad. I mean, i don’t like John’s character and I think he’s just average in the ring, but I always feel bad for the insults he gets, because he seems to be a really nice person.

      But I suppose he’s already used to the hate. Probably all the wrestlers are. The IWC can get really mean.

      • July 7, 2011 at 11:28 am

        What’s sad is that the WWE probably aren’t going to do anything about the boos because bad heat is still heat and heat brings in money. All those fans who boo Cena don’t get in for free.

              Carlito had potential, but I think his hair held him back. I’m surprised he hasn’t signed with TNA.

              If Jesus doesn’t stab him again then Rikishi should run him over… for The Rock.

                The thing about Carlito is that he was one of the guys that actually stood up. Most of the new guys look so normal nowadays.

                • July 7, 2011 at 3:02 pm

                  You know who else stood out? Darren Young and he’s no longer on WWE TV.

                  • July 7, 2011 at 3:12 pm

                    Lol. Darren Young should have been been taken under John Cena’s wing as a distant cousin or illegitimate brother and molded into the next Cena since other than skin color and muscle mass they look exactly the same.

                    • July 7, 2011 at 3:14 pm

                      I remember when I first saw Darren Young and I thought I was the only one who noticed how much he looked EXACTLY like John Cena other than the goofy hair and the skin color.

                • July 7, 2011 at 3:10 pm

                  I just liked that he was representing for the ricans and I liked that one shirt he had where he looked like Huey from the Boondocks.

  14. July 7, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    Speaking of guys who stood out, when are we ever going to see Percy Watson again? I’m not a big Percy fan but he got over with the crowd very well and was actually a decent worker. He’s Kofi-like.

    • July 7, 2011 at 3:17 pm

      Last I heard he was having dark matches on RAW, but nothing ever materialized from it. He reminds me of the Klump’s mother when she goes “Hercules, Hercules, Hercules” OH YEAH!!!!!!!

      • Capt. Smooth
        July 7, 2011 at 4:38 pm

        Yeah I think they are prepping him for TV.

    Tony Kegger :

    I remember when I first saw Darren Young and I thought I was the only one who noticed how much he looked EXACTLY like John Cena other than the goofy hair and the skin color.

    I remember when they gave him a theme song then he disappeared. He seemed more fluid in the ring than David Otunga can ever hope to be so I don’t get it.

    • July 7, 2011 at 3:26 pm

      Yeah I remember that. It looked like Darren Young was going to help Cena defeat The Nexus and then the WWE realized, “Wait…why are we giving Darren Young a push?” so they wrote him out of the storyline and hoped we forgot he existed. They also want us to forget about Husky Harris seeing how he hasn’t been mentioned since Orton punted him.

      As for Otunga, I think he’s got potential. Not as a wrestler but his mic work is really good. Maybe they can make him a manager or a commentator.

      • July 7, 2011 at 3:43 pm

        I once believed that if they kept Otunga on the mic and train him to wrestle that he could be really good. His “A List Celebrity” persona was great at generating heel heat, but then they silenced him and now he sucks. He would be good at commentary or backstage announcing. I think if he wasn’t involved with Jenifer Hudson that he would be future endevoured.

    I once believed that if they kept Otunga on the mic and train him to wrestle that he could be really good. His “A List Celebrity” persona was great at generating heel heat, but then they silenced him and now he sucks. He would be good at commentary or backstage announcing. I think if he wasn’t involved with Jenifer Hudson that he would be future endevoured.

    As of right now, Otunga’s night as the guest host of RAW is his biggest accomplishment in the WWE. My favorite moment of that night was when he was teaming with John Cena and right when he was about to get tagged in by Cena, he jumped off the ring apron.

    I also enjoyed Otunga’s interaction with David Hasselhoff on RAW when Hoff was the guest host.
