Randy Orton Would Love To Take The Route The Rock Did

Randy Orton told Shockya.com that he would love for what happened to The Rock to happen to him, with acting becoming his moneymaker. Below is an excerpt from an exclusive interview they did:

Yeah, kind of like Dwayne Johnson, and the route he’s gone? He’s still around the wrestling world and that’s his first love but the moneymaker for him now is movies and that’s where his heart lies now. I would love for that to happen, I would love for that to happen. But as an actor can you compare me with the Rock? Hell no, hell no. I have a long way to go, and I know that. It’s one thing at a time, and we’ll see how this movie does. And I need some more acting classes before any other movies. I know that. But I want to see how this movie does and see if people think I have that potential.

    Randy Orton is a great actor when it comes to playing a sinister heel. I could see him playing certain roles pertaining to that type of character.

    Randy Orton is an idiot!! He was a Marine who went AWOL. I enjoy watching WWE, but every time Randy Orton is on screen, I change the channel. I’m a veteran and I think that WWE is a little hypocritical for pushing their patriotism and employing a scumbag like Orton. Instead of getting rich in WWE, he should have been doing time for deserting. I’ll give him credit. He is a talented performer. He’ll never reach The Rock’s level, though.

      Do you even know the real story of why Orton went AWOL? Watch his DVD and maybe you’ll learn something.

        He got a dishonorable discharge, whatever reason he had for going AWOL was clearly not a valid excuse.

        • Phil D. Garrie

          only not valid according to the army… not everyone thinks what they do is for the benefit of this world.

      You’re an idiot. So ignorant. Listen to Justin Lal

    Orton does not have the acting chops, he doesn’t really have any acting chops at all. All of expressions make him look like he’s struggling to pass gas and his promos are all robotic and boring. What I’ve seen of that 12 Rounds thing or whatever his movie was called, well, it was far from impressive. He’s not an actor, and if there is any great justice in the world he never will be.

    • TheBigKing1

      Hater right here above me!

    • Nostaljack

      I agree. He needs a bigger personality to make it in Hollywood. He has definite charisma but he’s definitely no Rock. Really, no one in WWE has it like that. Heck, Steve Austin clearly doesn’t either. If he doesn’t, there’s no way Orton does.

  • Stoney

    I liked him in that movie where he says ‘ill go to the papers if I have to’ what was it called again?
    Plus he would make a great robot in some movies

      “That’s who I am” WWE is gonna do sequel to that movie called “THAT’S WHAT I DO!” Starring Mark Henry.

    I have watched his new movie (12rounds2) and it’s full of shit I would give it a half a star (nothing against randy)he can act but the movie had no story and the actions sequences were below standard. The mizs movie marine 3 was superb and I do see the miz going far as an actor.
