Randy Orton breaks silence after his RKO on Beth Phoenix on WWE RAW
- Randy Orton has made his first comment since THAT incident.
Writing on Twitter, the 13-time World Champion shared a picture of the incident, accompanied by a caption which reads, “Never send a woman to do a man’s.......ahhh, you get it.”
The segment saw Orton explain to Phoenix that he attacked her husband, Edge, on the post-Royal Rumble episode of RAW because he does not believe, for the sake of his health and family, that his former Rated-RKO tag team partner should come out of retirement.
“The Viper” then struck her with his trademark move before quickly making his way out of the ring, while various Superstars and backstage WWE personnel checked on Phoenix.
Edge’s WWE return
Nine years after retiring due to a neck injury, Edge received clearance to return at the 2020 Royal Rumble, where he entered at #21 and lasted 23 minutes, eliminating three Superstars in the process.
The 46-year-old confirmed in an in-ring promo on RAW after the Royal Rumble that he is officially a WWE Superstar again, but he has not been seen on WWE programming since being attacked by Orton with a steel chair.
Edge vs. Orton is expected to be added to the WrestleMania 36 card in the coming weeks.Published 04 Mar 2020, 00:19 IST
