• Randy Orton Impressed With AEW Dynamite’s Debut
During a recent video game live stream, 13 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion “The Viper” Randy Orton said the following regarding AEW Dynamite’s debut on TNT:
“Hey speaking of Vince, that AEW looked f***ing cool, huh? You watch that show last night?
Yeah the show started…it’s that big show feel, that big match feel. Cody and Sammy Guevara…that kid can do some sh*t. I’d love to work with that kid, we’d have a good match.
I thought that opening the show with that match was a good idea and well received.”
