During an interview on Logan Paul’s Impaulsive podcast, Randy Orton was asked if he was an a**hole early in his WWE career.

Below is what The Legend Killer said:

“Yeah. 100%. That was like my armor. I was an a**hole I think because I wanted people to respect me maybe? I don’t know. I just know that I grew out of that phase and I thank God that I did.

I see footage that I didn’t know the camera was rolling at that autograph signing and there’s an interaction with a fan and it’s picked up.

Now they’re doing this doc on A&E that they’re just kind of finishing up and I’ve seen some of this footage from 10-15 years ago and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, that’s horrible.’

That’s just kind of who I was. It wasn’t coming from a place of confidence. I think it was coming from a place, it was my armor. I was an a**hole and maybe I would get respect that way.

Maybe it was a little bit of fear and I took it as respect and either way I was fine with it. Luckily I was given a second, third, fourth chance from Vince McMahon coming up when I would get in trouble or I would have to get sent away for a couple of months or I would have to get fined a second or third time.

I’m just blessed. I am so blessed. I had the right guys in there to kind of yank my a** straight to make sure I was walking a straight line.”
