Randy Orton Comments On The Vince McMahon Scandal

Randy Orton Comments On The Vince McMahon Scandal

Vince McMahon was forced to resign from WWE’s parent company, TKO Group Holdings, in disgrace following the shocking allegations made in Janel Grant’s lawsuit. Subsequently, many of those who worked for the disgraced billionaire over the years have addressed the claims, and now current WWE Superstar Randy Orton has joined them by commentating on the sordid scandal during an interview with Sports Illustrated. In this, the third-generation wrestler would acknowledge how his career success is down to McMahon; however, what he read in the lawsuit, “f*cking hurts my heart.

“I’ve got to say this–I wouldn’t be where I am without Vince McMahon taking a chance on me a handful of times. I would not be where I am today without Vince McMahon. But, f*ck, I’m reading this sh*t. What you’ve seen and read, I’ve seen and read. As far as commenting on that, it f*cking hurts my heart. It hurts my heart.”

43-year-old Orton was treated as a big deal by WWE not long after he debuted on television, with it clear McMahon saw him as a future star. Yet Jim Ross has previously disclosed that McMahon actually had to be talked into signing Orton back in 2000 due to his dishonorable discharge from the Marines. And while there have been several ups and downs during Orton’s long WWE career, ultimately, he will go down as one of their best signings ever.
