Randy Orton has been with WWE for decades at this point, and he’s come a long way. There was once a time when The Viper made a lot of poor choices, and that includes smoking cigarettes for years. An old video from those days just resurfaced, and it doesn’t age well.

Although WWE fans know Randy Orton as a locker room leader now, there was once a time when his name was surrounded by controversy. He was a smoker, he partied, and he’s not ashamed to speak about the road he’s traveled.

A video has resurfaced today for some reason, showing Randy Orton from a long time ago. This is a fan video, showing a group of WWE superfans outside a live event. When they saw Randy Orton, they were more than excited.

The young Viper walked up to the fans, but he didn’t want to sign any autographs or snap photos. He only wanted a cigarette.


As Randy Orton walked up to the fans, he motioned with the universal sign that he wanted a smoke. Eventually, Randy Orton was able to get a cigarette from a fan, and after he lit it up, he walked away.

Randy Orton doesn’t smoke cigarettes anymore. He switched to vaping, and the last we heard he was trying to give that up as well. We have no current update on The Apex Predator’s current nicotine intake, but he’s certainly in great shape in 2023 during his return run after an 18-month hiatus from back fusion surgery.
