On the debut edition of her podcast “The Wives of Wrestling”, Kim Orton dished out the details of her first encounter with Randy Orton. Joining her on the podcast were Giovanna Angle and host Jon Alba. Kim first saw Randy on TV while her kids were watching WWE. The attraction was instantaneous.

“Oh, right. And so now I’m like, he’s kind of hot. So, and I and I would tell them I’m like when Randy and I would leave and when Randy comes on, tell mommy call me call me. And they will be like, Ma, Randy’s on and I would come and boy, oh, boy.” said Kim.

Kim also said that she would tell people in her family that if she ever meets Randy, they would fall in love. She wanted to meet him so much that she got tickets to a WWE live event happening in Poughkeepsie Civic Center. She was really excited about finally seeing Randy live in action.

“I’m like, This is it. I got to run into him. I’m gonna meet um, this is my chance to make out” said Kim.

Kim’s first impression of Randy turned out to be incorrect

Kim Orton further said that she had a certain impression of what wrestlers would be like. She consequently thought that ‘The Viper’ would also be of the same predilections. She confirmed she thought of wrestlers spending the night with their fans while on the road. Furthermore, she said that initially, she wondered if Randy was like that too.

“Um, yes. Okay. Yes. Yeah. Yeah, for sure. Because I’m like, you know, I totally had that perception of him. I thought he was…He, he, you know, he was like, a smug a**hole is what I thought of him.” said Kim.

And when he there was one point, we did kiss, and he, he liked, but he, it was how it happened. And he was like, you know, he pushed my hair behind my ear and he was like, ‘would you mind if I kissed you?’ And I was like, I’m in love. That’s it. And so you made out, right?” said Kim.

Randy asked her to meet him again, as he loved the time they spent together. Kim was then sure that Randy Orton was in love with her.
