Former WWE writer Kevin Eck, in his latest column for The Sporting News, commented on the Randy Orton story that spread like wildfire in the last few days. For those of you that missed it, click here for details on the story and for WWE’s brief statement.
On his interaction with Orton, Eck wrote, “On a side note, I don’t have any comment on the recent stories about Orton’s backstage behavior other than to say that I always avoided shaking hands with him during my time on the WWE creative team.”
I guess he is leaving it up to fans to read into what he wrote. Eck was a writer for WWE from 2011 to 2014. It’s worth noting that nobody has come to Orton’s defense. It’s well-known that Orton had personal issues in his younger days. Hopefully, he has matured and he’s a different person these days.
Eck also gave his thoughts on last week’s Raw, Paul Heyman’s acting chops, Renee Young getting an opportunity in the broadcast booth, Smackdown Live thoughts, and more. Click here to read his entire column.
