Here's your Fight Size wrestling Update for the evening of August 11th, 2018.
- Reddit user 'CarterVoorhes31' shared a transcript from episode 49 of the MLW podcast with former WWE creative writer and founder of MLW Court Bauer. During the podcast Court discussed how former 13-time WWE World Champion Randy Orton would have a hazing method of sorts for new creative writers:
"For every new writer that would show up, he come in the room put his hand down his pants, pull out his d**k, touch himself, then say 'I'm Randy Orton, shake my hand...oh you dont want to shake my hand? You're big leaguing me? That's fucked up man. Should I tell Vince and Steph you wont shake Randy Ortons hand?'" Bauer said.
Court also stated that it happened to him as well but as soon as Orton was about to pull out his member, Stephanie McMahon walked in the room and Orton put it away. The transcription also read that Orton has always been very intense so it is difficult to tell when he is serious or when he is joking.
