Randy Orton issues statement to upset indy fans Submitted by Aaron Rift on 05/14/2017 at 11:29 PM
As previously noted, Randy Orton retweeted a rant on indy wrestling matches by current Ohio Valley Wrestling trainer Rip Rogers. With fans being upset about the post, Orton responded with the following statement:
"Sorry to the Indy marks, Indy guys and old timers who do DIVES took offense just having a good time over a few drinks in Denmark closing the Smackdown Live tour....while beating Raw in making over 5 million dollars in the last 11 shows. Now I know to some that doesn't equate to a standing room only crowd of 150 people paying $8 at an armory somewhere.... but in the big boy world that's called putting asses in seats. So enjoy your flips, dives, and 20 superkicks per match. To each their own. I will go 'dive' back into my 13th title run and get ready to 'flip' when my bank statement comes this month.....headlock."
