Randy Orton disses Rock, Kelly Kelly, opens up about drug overdose
Special thanks to Christian Albury for passing this along.
WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton did one of the most candid interviews in a long, long time with 98KUPD Arizona's Real Rock radio show. This interview is totally not TV-PG and made Orton seem like a really cool, down-to-earth, blunt-as-hell dude.
Here are the highlights:
--Pretty much called WWE Divas Champion Kelly Kelly a slut, saying he slept with her years ago and her "spouse count" in WWE has been 10 dudes. So how many girls has Orton been with?
--Orton says John Cena isn't as good of a wrestler as he is. He says Cena is above and beyond a much better promoguy than him and The Rock.
--Cena is as PG can be. Unless you're talking about backstage, which Mr. RKO wouldn't elaborate on.
--Mark Henry is a tough guy to work a match with due to his size. Orto crun calls Henry's calves elephant calves. Says Henry's a good guy, but yeah...
--According to Orton, even his wife thinks he uses too much baby oil. He says he only uses regular Johnson&Johnson baby oil and a combo of that and warmup sweat makes him oilier that he should be. He pokes fun at himself, saying he doesn't do that Statue of David-esque pose as much anymore.
--Claims The Great Khali crushes lipstick and baby oil, mixing it together to get a little red tint when he oils himself up. AWESOME.
--Perhaps the most notable comment besides the obvious confirmation that Kelly Kelly is easy:
Orton says he meant what he said in pre-WrestleMania XXVII interviews about Cena being better than The Rock. Orton hints that he thinks Rock is a bitch for not saying something about it to his face. Instead, Rock called up WWE Head of Talent Relations John Laurinaitis and complained about Orton burrying him AND TRIPLE H. Orton says he never, ever buried Triple H and that he spoke to Hunter himself to clear the air. He says Rocky intentionally mentioned Triple H's name to get WWE's attention. Orton had some "heat" from Vince McMahon on that one.
--Orton says his new DVD this fall isn't your cookie cutter WWE superstar profile, as he opens up about his drug problems.
--He overdosed in 2006 at age 26. His wife saved his life. He says she even cries on the DVD and that his family probably will when they see the documentary.
--Orton wishes there were five more Sheamuses because Sheamus is the man.
--Orton revealed that Chris Jericho is a great locker room leader and has a rare trait in having the balls to stand up to Vince and WWE if he doesn't agree with something. He says he misses Jericho and that Y2J wasn't even "allowed" to host the ABC gameshow Downfall and did it anyway. He says Jericho got heat but didn't care and pretty much told Vince what the deal was. I love Y2J...
--Orton says he misses traveling with Santino Marella, who is the funniest person he knows.
-Oh, Orton once pooped on his $8.99 rug when he was young and had his own apartment after drinking too many protein shakes. He was nude.According to Orton, it was a fart gone terribly wrong. I'll leave it at that.
