WWE ‘looking into’ allegations of past inappropriate behavior from Randy Orton

Just the other day, a user at Reddit, CarterVoorhes31, created a post highlighting a story from a years old MLW podcast featuring former WWE writer Court Bauer. In it, Bauer, a former writer with WWE, related a story of Randy Orton acting inappropriately with writers.

From the Reddit post:

Court Bauer on Randy Orton: “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 dont want to shake my hand? You’re big leaguing me? That’s fucked up man. Should I tell Vince and Steph you wont shake Randy Ortons hand?”

The writers would all start sweating and backing up into the corner, the guys dick is still hanging out, and he would be there cutting a promo on a guy with his dick hanging out for like five minutes. Court goes on to say Orton was very intense so you could never tell if he was fucking with you or he was really hot.

Court says he was lucky...Randy did it to him on the 1st day he was with the company at tv and just as he was about to pull his dick out, Stephanie walked in, and that shit went right back in his pants. Court describes it as a teacher entering the classroom.

When asked if he would have shaken his hand, Court says “I dont know. I’m a bit of a germaphobe.” Court says this was something Orton did during his [Court’s] entire time at the WWE, and he is surprised Orton didnt get hit with sexual harassment.

As that post made its way around social media, someone asked Bauer if it was true and he responded quite simply:

Multiple outlets, like and the Wrestling Observer, were given a statement by WWE:

“WWE is looking into the matter.”

Orton recently returned to television following an absence due to injury. He’s been involved in a program with Jeff Hardy and Shinsuke Nakamura, though he does not have a match scheduled for the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view next weekend in Brooklyn.
