Cowboy Bob Orton Talks About His Son Randy’s Success in WWE and More

– WWE Hall of Famer “Cowboy” Bob Orton recently spoke with Alex Marvez of to promote this weekend’s WrestleReunion 5. Here are some of the highlights:

His son Randy Orton getting into wrestling:
“He started to wrestle at 9 years old and had a pretty good amateur career. He was going to go away to (college), but he didn’t know exactly what he wanted to major in, so he decided to join the Marines. That didn’t work out, so we went down and talked to (WWE road agents) Jack Lanza and Tony Garea. They brought Randy up and had a look at him. The rest is history.”

Randy’s success now:
“What’s scary is, he’s starting to get healthy again,” he said, referring to Randy’s extensive history of shoulder and neck injuries. “His (in-ring) psychology is really falling into place. He can really handle the crowd while also handling the match. He should continue to improve as long as he stays devoted, which he seems to be doing pretty good at.”

    If your over 10 years old and still watching wrestling, is because it’s a soap. And wwe needs people like the Miz cause it’s entertaining. You either love him or hate him. The fact that he makes you wanna puke means he is doin his job n doing it pretty well. And Orton is ths generations Austin, cuz triple H is done, taker is just gonna do manias. N edge is on his way to hang it up. So all thts left is punk, and cena. And Cena is on his own level of entertainment.

    Do you even watch RAW? Punk vs Cena two weeks ago was fantastic “wrestling” at least on Punk’s part. Also, I don’t love Miz, but his match against Morrison on RAW for the title was top notch “wrestling”. I think you need to pay more attention before you comment.

  • The Miz makes me want to puke , and is one of the reasons to not watch Raw. The Nexus gives me the shit’s .I’m not 10 years old, and I would like to see some wrestling , not soap opera !

    to be honest i agree with cm punk, but the miz is the reason to watch RAW every week. randy isn’t a bad wrestler but his character is not entertaining at all. he is getting flat with the venon thing already. he needs to go back to the legend killer. the new nexus is wack if cm punk wasn’t part of them that group would be dead and on smackdown and superstars

    Randy is one, if not the best all around entertainers in the WWE right now. The only other guy close is CM Punk. These two are the only reason to watch Raw right now.
