A crazy story involving Randy Orton.
A story has made the rounds on social media recently that has grabbed the attention of many people and not in a positive way. The story first surfaced on Reddit when Reddit user 'CarterVoorhes31' posted a transcription and a few notes from Court Bauer's MLW podcast. The episode that was shared was episode 49 and it was recorded and posted in 2012.
The title of the podcast is 'Ribbing & Junk' and it is a "VIP" episode that requires a subscription to listen to. One of the talking points listed under the episode preview is, "Randy Orton pulling his c**k out in front of writers backstage at WWE shows." That portion of the podcast was posted on Reddit and here's what former WWE creative writer Court Bauer stated during the podcast about Randy Orton:
"For every new writer that would show up, he'd 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 don't want to shake my hand? You're big leaguing me? That's fu***d up man. Should I tell Vince and Steph you won't shake Randy Orton's hand?" Bauer said.
It is noted that Randy Orton would do this regularly to new creative team members and it was hard for them to decipher whether Orton was being serious or if he was joking due to his intense demeanor. Court Bauer added that he was almost hazed on his first day in WWE but as Randy Orton was about to haze him Stephanie McMahon walked into the room and Orton put his genitalia away. Court closed by saying that this was something he saw Orton do throughout his time as a creative writer.
A Twitter user reached out to Bauer and asked if him if what is noted above is true and Court responded with the following:
