During a recent episode of the Wives of Wrestling podcast, WrestleMania 33 was being discussed.
Kim Orton went on to reveal that her husband Randy Orton almost passed out during his entrance.
Below is what she said:
“I was just gonna say something about Randy’s entrance at that same WrestleMania.
He was walking down the ramp and he got so fired up that he got lightheaded.
Yeah, but he got so fired up and like, held his breath as he was getting fired up, and he stops, and he puts his like hands down and he was like [discombobulated].
That motherf**ker almost passed out. He walks so slow as it is that it took him 5. minutes to get down there.”

• ON THIS DAY IN WWF HISTORY (March 25, 1985) – WWF Georgia Championship Wrestling on TBS
On this day in 1985, the World Wrestling Federation aired another episode of their TV show ‘World Championship Wrestling’ on Ted Turner’s channel TBS.
‘World Championship Wrestling’ originally belonged to the Georgia Championship Wrestling territory, which Vince McMahon bought in July 1984 (leading to the infamous “Black Saturday”).
After the first ever WrestleMania event in 1985, McMahon sold the TV-show and the timeslot on TBS that came with it, to the Atlanta based Jim Crockett Promotions, who kept the ‘World Championship Wrestling’ name and continued the show as a weekly saturday night Wrestling show.
Ted Turner eventually bought Jim Crockett Promotions in late 1988 and renamed it ‘World Championship Wrestling’, which ironically was also the name of its weekly A-show, until they changed the show’s name to ‘WCW Saturday Night’ in 1992.
The World Wrestling Federation product ran on this show from July 14, 1984 until March 25, 1985.
This episode featured pre-taped matches & interviews on the road to the first ever WrestleMania event.
