Contrary to online scuttlebutt, Randy Orton did not purchase his own plane last month.
Previously, a social media selfie from The Viper prompted speculation that he had bought his own private jet. As Randal Keith himself put it at that point, “F**ked around and bought a plane.”
Despite easily having the sort of money to do just such a thing, Orton has now moved to rule out the notion that he’d make such a purchase.
As part of the preview for this week’s edition of Corey Graves’ After the Bell podcast, it’s been confirmed that Randy will be appearing on the show to talk about “the time he had us all convinced that he bought a private jet on a whim.”
Of course, this multiple-time World Champion wouldn’t be the first wrestler to splash out on a private jet – with Brock Lesnar currently boarding his own personal vessel as and when he can be arsed to appear on Monday Night Raw.
The official synopsis for this week’s After the Bell reads:
Randy Orton is preparing for what might very well be The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever at WWE Backlash, but before he clashes with Edge in that anticipated confrontation, The Viper slithers to WWE After the Bell with Corey Graves, available tomorrow wherever you get your podcasts.
In a candid conversation with The Savior of Misbehavior, the 13-time World Champion opens up about his home life, gives his thoughts on his battle with The Rated-R Superstar this Sunday and remembers the time he had us all convinced that he bought a private jet on a whim.
Orton faces off against Edge in ‘the greatest wrestling match ever’ this coming Sunday at WWE Backlash.
