Report: WWE says Randy Orton’s rage was staged
A WWE spokesperson told The U.K. Sun that Randy Orton’s tirade during an interview with a reporter on a Mexican TV show last week was a work.
I speculated here this morning that it may have been pre-arranged to get heat on Orton and create a buzz about WWE’s shows in Mexico, as well as give the TV show some publicity. And, yes, Orton appearing to give the “cut” signal at the end perhaps was a giveaway.
However, I didn’t dismiss the possibility that it was a shoot because of Orton’s past anger management and attitude issues. Because Orton’s reputation is not a secret, it made the incident more believable than if another heel such as Edge had been involved.
As far as Orton’s promo on the guy, it was tremendous. He should be playing the lead villain in WWE’s next movie project.
