Randy Orton Speaks Out On Motorcycle Accident

Nick Paglino


The following was posted on Randy-Orton.com last night:

“i was ran off the road last night at 1030 by a car that had its hi beams on and was veering into m lane during a sharp turn a the top of a hill near my home. i had no choice but to crash, and was thrown 300 feet from the concrete block that sent me flying. i was traveling about 30 miles per hour. i’m lucky to be alive. i have some pretty severe skinned up areas such as my left knee right foot, and left shoulder trap. wwe. com should be posting that it wasn’t 30 feet but 300 soon. i just called and bitched em out, for the typo. i was wearing a helmet, and if not for that i would have without a doubt been a goner. i see what the extent of my rebroken collarbone is tommorow. ill let you all know. the bike was a harley fat bob, and it was a rental. it is totaled.im happy im alive, and that the bike wasn’t mine. all i could think about was my daughter and samantha. God was definetly watching over me!!

Nick’s Note: As I discussed last night on The Voice of Wrestling, there are rumors circulating that this accident is merely a work and that WWE is planning to surprise viewers with an early Orton return. It should be noted, however, that this is ONLY a rumor, and at this point the story should be treated as a legitimate accident. We will have more on this as it becomes available.
