Randy Orton Paid A Fan $1,000 To Carry Out Bizarre Request

Randy Orton is willing to do whatever it takes to become an Elden Lord.

Like many in 2022, The Viper became enthralled with the open-world adventure game created by From Software. However, as fans of the Dark Souls franchise are aware, the game is notoriously difficult and takes hours to master. While many would spend their time in Limgrave farming away at lower-level enemies to work their way up to a fight with Malenia, Orton had his own cheat code, paying someone else to do the hard work for him.

While appearing on their show The Insiderz, Mace and Mansoor recounted their interactions with The Apex Predator during the video game’s height of popularity. Mansoor recounted how much Orton paid someone to do the hard work for him:

‘It’s f***ing hard. I paid a guy $1,000 bucks to give me infinite runes so I could level up to 100 right away,’

Mace added that Orton was a huge fan of the game but had no interest in increasing his stats:

‘It’s awesome. But no, I couldn’t deal with that bull*** so I just paid a guy to give me a bunch of runes.’

Unfortunately for the former WWE Champion, it is not possible to take down demi-gods with an RKO. If it was, the boss fights would definitely be a lot shorter.

Is Randy Orton Returning To WWE?

Having been out of action for over a year, it is still unknown when or if fans will see Orton make a return to the company. In one positive update, The Viper has recently been seen going into the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
