– Death Rumors of WWE Hall of Famer False
There were rumors going on last night that WWE Hall of Famer “Cowboy” Bob Orton (father of Randy Orton) has passed away. However, that’s not the case. We can confirm that those rumors are false and this has been confirmed by multiple wrestling personalities (including Randy Orton himself).
Here’s what Orton posted on Twitter: “Stuff about my dad is a rumor.” WWF Veteran Road Dogg posted the following: “He’s alive and well dude. Just a bad rib that ain’t funny. People are too much!” The Blue Meanie posted this: “Thankfully Cowboy Bob Orton is STILL alive folks. Spread the word.”
– Triple H Frustrated With Vince McMahon
According to PWTorch, Triple H is frustrated with Vince McMahon. According to the report, Triple H is not happy with how Vince books NXT call-ups on the WWE main roster as the 14 time World Champion thinks his hard work in NXT is being wasted when someone is called up to the main roster and is not used correctly.
One such example would be Tye Dillinger, who debuted on the WWE main roster on the post-WrestleMania 33 edition of SmackDown Live and hasn’t been involved in any noteworthy feud since then.
