WWE has confirmed they are looking into allegations made against Randy Orton by former WWE writer Court Bauer stemming from an incident backstage during his tenure.
The transcription detailed what Orton would do with new writers hired by WWE.
“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 don’t want to shake my hand? You’re big leaguing me? That’s f*cked up man. Should I tell Vince and Steph you wont shake Randy Orton’s hand?'”
Bauer himself stated he was able to avoid this situation with Orton when Stephanie McMahon walked into the room at the time Orton was allegedly reaching into his pants.
When reached for comment on Twitter, Bauer said he had “no qualms” with Orton and that someone simply decided to revive the old story on Reddit.
Nah. Someone found a podcast I did 6 years ago and ran with it. Got no qualms with Randy. pic.twitter.com/hb1S3VxzAE
