Randy Orton took a hiatus from WWE to nurse his back injuries in May. Orton’s tattoos are the subject of an ongoing trial as well. The verdict was announced and it wasn’t in favor of the defendants including WWE.

According to PW Insider, the jury in the Randy Orton tattoo lawsuit trial ruled in favor of Catherine Alexander, a tattoo artist who had extensively worked on Orton’s tattoo designs.

The jury in the trial for the lawsuit tattoo artist Catherine Alexander brought against World Wrestling Entertainment, Take-Two Interactive Software, 2K Games, Inc., 2K Sports, Inc., Visual Concepts Entertainment, Yuke’s Co., Ltd. and Yuke’s LA Inc. before the U.S. District Court Southern District of Illinois officially ruled in favor of Alexander earlier today.

It took the jury all of three hours and 26 minutes to come to their decision.  What is not yet known is the level of damages the defendants will be required to pay, nor whether the defendants will attempt to appeal the decision.


WWE and A&E are working on Randy Orton documentary as well. Orton last appeared on WWE TV during the May 20, 2022 episode of SmackDown. Orton and Matt Riddle lost the Raw Tag Team Championship to The Usos that night. We will have to see how this ruling changes video games in the future, especially titles that depict real-life people with actual ink.
