Kurt Angle reveals why Orton was charged
During the podcast, Kurt Angle shared a story when he had first met Orton who was young back then. They were on their way to a show in Florida. Angle was in driving seat and not knowing the directions they ended up going to Georgia. Somehow they had managed to go to the venue of the show but they were late.
Angle said Orton got very nervous, as they were late for the show. They saw the doors were closed, and in his fear Orton had kicked the door down, for which he was fined $800.
Kurt Angle said: “I just remember travelling with you the one day when we were going to Florida and I ended up going the wrong way to Georgia. We ended up being an hour and a half late, and when we got to the arena you were so nervous about being late. The door was locked so you kicked it down and you shattered the window, and you end up having to pay $800 for it.”
The young Randy Orton has now grown up to be a senior star now in WWE. Being the experienced one, the veteran star now mentors the young talents in the locker room. Orton is one of the finest stars in the company and his advice is undoubtely valuable.
Recently, WWE’s first Saudi-born star Mansoor made his debut on Monday Night Raw. He went on to reveal that The Viper was ‘kind’ and ‘approachable’ when they first met. He had further revealed that Orton offers honest feedback.
Orton is currently paired with the former WWE United States Champion, Riddle and their tag-team goes by the name of RK-Bro.
They have been doing great since the inception of the team and have won a couple of matches they have competed in. We will have to see if Orton gets another run as the Tag-Team Champions.
