The incident involving Randy Orton is said to have been an offensive violation of WWE policy, in a way that made it seem like he was doing it to try and prove that he couldn’t get in trouble because he’s a main-eventer. It’s said that Orton had been doing things backstage that lower-card workers would’ve been suspended for immediately.
The feeling among most people backstage is that he is a great worker in the ring, but out of the ring they want nothing to do with him.
The move to suspend him has been very well received backstage, and so far the feeling is that it had to be done.
There was a huge incident between Orton and Trish Stratus at one of the Supershow tapings. You can get the details on it here.
