Things might be going deep south for 13-time World Champion Randy Orton as major media channel Fox News has picked up The Viper’s disturbing “handshake” incident.
Orton might be in deep trouble if WWE receives backlash from advertisers. It would be interesting to see how things play out for The Apex Predator given he is already 38 and has accomplished everything possible in his lengthy career in WWE. Currently, Orton is playing a heel persona on SmackDown Live.
As for the matter in question, former WWE writer Court Bauer revealed that Orton would pull out his penis and then touch himself in front of new writers telling them to shake his hand and with the added threat of informing the management if they didn’t.”
The story was told on episode 49 of the Ribbing and Junk podcast in 2012. The revelation, from episode 49 of the Ribbing and Junk podcast on MLW Radio, was recently brought to light again by Reddit user,CarterVoorhes31.
Here’s what CarterVoorhes31 posted on Reddit:
“Court Bauer on Randy Orton: “For every new writer that would show up, he come in the room put his hand down his pants, pull out his dick, touch himself, then say “I’m Randy Orton, shake my hand…oh you don’t want to shake my hand? You’re big leaguing me? That’s f**ked up man. Should I tell Vince and Steph you wont shake Randy Orton’s hand?”
The writers would all start sweating and backing up into the corner, the guys d**k is still hanging out, and he would be there cutting a promo on a guy with his d**k hanging out for like five minutes. Court goes on to say Orton was very intense so you could never tell if he was f**king with you or he was really hot.
Court says he was lucky…Randy did it to him on the 1st day he was with the company and just as he was about to pull his d**k out, Stephanie walked in, and that sh*t went right back in his pants. Court describes it as a teacher entering the classroom.
When asked if he would have shaken his hand, Court says “I don’t know. I’m a bit of a germaphobe.” Court says this was something Orton did during his [Court’s] entire time at the WWE, and he is surprised Orton didn’t get hit with sexual harassment.”
