Randy Orton is a true veteran in the pro wrestling world as he has competed inside the squared circle for two decades. He has earned the respect of fans and fellow WWE Superstars and is viewed as a proper locker room leader. He was also barred from driving with Kurt Angle during his early days in WWE.

Orton was seen as a very troublesome person backstage in WWE during his early days. He also had anger issues among other things and fans are more than aware of that as well.

Orton and Angle traveled together back in the day and were also known to be late at WWE shows. While speaking on the “Wives of Wrestling” podcast, Kim Orton recalled how WWE stopped Orton from driving with Kurt Angle.

“I think it was after that time they told Randy he wasn’t allowed to drive with Kurt because he kept being late. So like, he was nervous, he was new, and he had to be on time, and they were like, ‘Hey, you need to be here on time.’ He was like, ‘Oh, you know, I was driving with Kurt.’ He thought he had kind of like the pass because he was with Kurt. They were like, ‘No, no, no, he (Kurt) has the pass; you have to be here on time.’ So, they were like maybe; you don’t drive with him anymore.” 


Randy Orton is currently out of action after being viciously attacked by The Usos. We’ll have to see when The Viper will be able to return.
