• Randy Orton On Training With A WWF Veteran: “I thought I killed him”
During the newest episode of Stone Cold Steve Austin’s ‘Broken Skull Sessions’, Randy Orton talked about his beginnings in the professional wrestling business when he first got into the ring with Old School WWF Veteran and then head-coach “Dr. of Desire” Tom Prichard (also known as Zip of The Body Donnas).
Here’s what The Legend Killer had to say about an incident from 1999:
“They sent me up to Stamford, Dr. Tom puts me in the ring and teaches me how to tie up. This was October 1999. He’s the man.
He asked me to give him a shoulder tackle, which I’d never done before. He takes the bump and immediately goes down and I thought I killed him.
He starts rolling and writhing in pain and screaming, and I’m like, ‘I don’t know what…’, I’m in this warehouse in Stamford, ‘I just hurt this guy, oh my god!’.
I go back and I’m like this and my dad was on the phone, they put me on the phone with my dad and I guess while Prichard was selling the shoulder tackle, his brother Bruce called my dad and said, ‘Hey Bob, congratulations, we’re going to sign him to a developmental deal.'”
