A story posted on Reddit yesterday which recaps an old episode of a podcast might land Randy Orton in hot water after WWE confirmed to several websites that the company is looking into the story to verify its authenticity.
The post is a recap of an old MLW podcast where former WWE creative writer Court Bauer tells the story about how Randy Orton meets new writers…by showing his dick, touching himself, and then asks them to shake his hand.
“For every new writer that would show up, he come in the room put his hand down his pants, pull out his dick, 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 f*cked up man. Should I tell Vince and Steph you won’t shake Randy Orton’s hand?” Bauer says in the podcast as recapped by Reddit user CarterVoorhes31.
Bauer continues to say that Orton was always intense so no one would know if he was serious or just ribbing you but the situation was very uncomfortable for those around him in the room.
Bauer adds that he was lucky to “escape” the nightmare himself as when Orton was doing it to him on his first day with WWE, Stephanie McMahon walked in the room and Orton had to pull his junk back in his trunk. Bauer said that he’s surprised no one reported Orton for sexual harassment.
On Friday, someone on Twitter posted a screenshot of the story and tweeted it to Bauer to ask if this really happened, with Bauer simply responding with “yes.” In another tweet, Bauer then said he has no issues with Orton. “Someone found a podcast I did 6 years ago and ran with it. Got no qualms with Randy.”
