A Reddit user recently posted a recap of a 2012 MLW Radio podcast featuring former WWE writer and current MLW head Court Bauer telling a pretty graphic story involving WWE star Randy Orton. Bauer alleged that Orton used to force WWE writers to shake his hand after Orton had openly touched his genitals. If writers refused Orton’s hazing, Orton would threaten to tell Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon that they refused to shake Randy Orton’s hand.
Following the reddit post, WrestlingNews.co asked WWE for a comment, and the following response was issued:
“WWE is looking into the matter”.
Below is a recap of the Bauer interview from the Reddit user.
Listening to old episodes of MLW podcast….during episode 49, former WWE Writer Court Bauer tells a story about Randy Orton showing his dick to new writers, touching it, and asking them to shake his hand.
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.
