Sports Town Chicago recently had an interview with former WWE star and current OVW trainer Nick “Eugene” Dinsmore. He talked about his character, his possible return to television, the drug wellness policy and his push to be the next Raw GM. Dinsmore was also asked if Randy Orton, who is currently on a 60 day suspension due to failing his 2nd Wellness Drug Test, should participate in Raw’s 1000th episode which will be on July 23rd in Orton’s hometown of St. Louis, MO. Dinsmore replied:
Interviewer: With [Orton] being suspended for the drug policy right now, do you think he should be allowed a one-day pass to come back? You know, his hometown is gonna huge for the fans.
Nick: Would the commissioner of the NFL do that for any NFL guy? I don’t think so.
Randy stops by Good Day Tulsa in Oklahoma this morning to give a brief preview on what to expect tonight’s live show of Friday Night Smackdown that will, of course, air this Friday on SyFy on 8/7c, plus share a few other little things.

We go one on one with the WWE ’12 RKO cover Superstar, Randy Orton, in this stroll down memory lane. A world-wide exclusive MUST READ interview.
I must admit, I’ve never identified with Randy Orton. In fact, I could almost say that I found him “boring.” That was just my ignorance talking, and my refusal to look deep inside the motivation behind “The Viper” prohibited me from really enjoying who he is. I’ve made this same mistake in the past. I spent many years despising Michael Jordan, not only because of his ability to constantly break the hearts of my Cleveland Cavaliers, but because I could never identify with the guy.
The same could be said for my personal feelings for Stone Cold Steve Austin in the early part of his career in the WWE (not as “The Ringmaster”). I never identified with the persona that he carried, and I refused to look beyond the surface to see that “Stone Cold” was only a reflection of himself and his past history. I was also an idiot back then…
But that doesn’t excuse my blindness towards Orton. So, when I learned that I was going to interview the cover Superstar, I really didn’t know what to expect. The results though, were astounding. Not only is Randy Orton one of the most complex individuals I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet, but he’s also an extremely driven person who stands up for what he believes in. You may have heard him defend John Cena, and surely haters loved that one, but he’s just so certain in what he’s doing. His confidence in his ability and himself is unmatched. Strike that, I wouldn’t even call it “confidence.” I’d say that he is so self-aware, that it benefits him and the career he’s chosen.
Without further ado, here’s my interview with “The Legend Killer,” “The Viper,” and WWE ’12 Cover Superstar, Randy Orton:
Hammer: You’ve had quite the career, and it doesn’t seem like you’re going to stop anytime soon. Out of every match you’ve ever had, which has been your favorite? We’ll make it easy on you, we’ll give you two choices.
Orton: Favorite match — Orton vs Foley at Backlash of 2004. It’s included on my latest DVD. I spat in Mick’s face, and he left. He came back as Cactus Jack, and everything fell into place. I landed on thumbtacks, and did stuff we really can’t do anymore, but it was an amazing buildup.
The crowd was magic for 35 minutes. They were there for everything we wanted them to be there for. The noise rumbles, and you can’t hear yourself think. I’ve been with Cena before, and because he’s so over we have very loud matches. I go back and watch the match, and it’s not that great, but people were loud and that’s what matters because they were on the edge of their seats.
The match with Mick was just like that. I knew I was landing on those tacks a month before, and had nightmares about it, and personally it was where I went from being a boy to a man in the lockerroom from peers, fans, etc.. I beat Cactus Jack at his own game. The build personally, was what jumpstarted my career, and made me the “Legend killer.” I also have other favorites; the “Three Stages of Hell” match with Triple H, a bunch with Edge, and of course The Undertaker.
WWE wrestler Randy Orton appeared on Fox Charlotte’s “Fox News Rising” morning show on Tuesday to promote the live Smackdown taping. Notable in the interview was Orton calling Daniel Bryan by his real name of Bryan Danielson, Orton confirming he will challenge the Henry-Bryan winner for the World Title in front of the live crowd, and Orton demonstrating holds on reporter Anna Kooiman.
Dr. Pete and Steve sat down with WWE Legend (Killer) Randy Orton to discuss the release of THQ’s WWE ’12 (you can see fans tying their shoes!), being “over the bitterness” of the Rock being back while being excited to see Rock/Cena at WM 28, and much more!
WWE Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes recently spoke to The Wrestling Press about being the son of a WWE Hall of Famer, his thoughts on Randy Orton and various other subjects. Here’s what he had to say about Randy Orton:
He was someone I looked at and said, ‘Well, he did it and his dad was extremely successful,’” Cody said. “Obviously at one point the fear had been there I didn’t want to show up and be considered less than my father, and I got to watch what (Orton) did, and he became himself.”
A lot of the ideas and the things we were doing to get under people’s skin with the grooming tops straight-up 100 percent came from my former mentor Randy Orton. That guy, he’s a gentleman’s diva, hands down. So many of those ideas that are obnoxious – teaching people how to spray tan, teaching people how to manicure their hands, putting on cucumber melon face lotion – that’s Randy Orton.
WWE Smackdown returned to the Scottrade Center last night, and since St. Louis native, Randy Orton, was in town for the event, he paid a visit to Donny Fandango in the Point studio.
Check out the video below of wrestling fan Donny Fandango and Randy Orton in the Point studio. Donny played some of it on the air, but if you missed it or want to see the full interview, we’ve got the whole thing above!
Call professional wrestling scripted all you want, but the pain is all too real for the performers risking their necks every night with suicide dives and DDTs.
I guess that’s why Randy Orton is a big fan of his video game doppelganger as the World Heavyweight Champion and “WWE 12″ cover athlete says he can bump all night and still walk away without a scratch thanks to the power of Xbox.
And to Orton, that’s almost as cool as his virtual beard.
“Man, it looks pretty sweet,” Orton says with a laugh after checking out his character’s new facial hair. “The game is so realistic, and I like the way it looks on me in real life, so of course I like how it looks in the game.
“I actually have all of the “Smackdown vs. Raw” games at home and it’s funny, because one thing I want to do is go back and check out my character throughout the years. You can actually track the evolution of everything from my tattoos to my beard through the games. It’s like a virtual scrap book.”
And Orton knows what he’s talking about as the man known as “The Viper” inside the ring is actually a pretty big gamer these days when he’s on the road, rolling around from city to city in his Madden Cruiser-like rock-star bus, complete with Xbox 360.
And after seeing the type of damage his character can do in “WWE 12,” Orton can’t wait to add the game to his collection.
“I love what I’ve played of ‘WWE 12′ so far,” Orton says, explaining how easy he found it to drop his opponent with his patented finisher, the RKO. “One button and he was out.”
The champ also found it funny how they portrayed his psycho fits in the ring.
“For a while there, when I got mad I would flip out and look all crazy, and they even have that in the game,” he laughs. “My wife used to hate that. She always told me I needed to tone it down. We’d be watching the show back and she’s always tell me, ‘I don’t like when you do that.’ So I can’t wait to show her how I do it in the game. THQ went all out with my character this year. I guess it pays to be on the cover.”
Then again, even though Orton’s mug is on the box, he’s only the third highest-rated wrestler in the game with a 94 overall (tied with CM Punk). “S—, I’ll take it,” he says as we go over the ratings of every character. “C.M. Punk is the man, so he deserves his 94. That leaves me behind only The Undertaker and John Cena. Not bad.”
But when we’re looking at the list, one number jumps out at Orton. “Wade Barrett is already an 87,” he says. “He’s 6-5 and the kid can cut one hell of a promo. He’s got a lot of potential.
“It’s funny because I’ve heard some guys talk about their ratings in the game before. Miz used to always say how they made him lower than some of the divas a few years ago, but it shows how far he’s come now that he’s a 90 in the game. I even heard Punk joke the other day how he wanted to be in the 90s this year, so yeah, we do pay attention to the numbers. How can you not? It’s someone rating you. Of course, you want to see what they think.”
