Randal Keith Orton, known as Randy Orton, is an actor and professional wrestler. He was born in a town called Knoxville, Tennessee; it is fair to say he has wrestled in his genes, as he is the son of professional wrestler Bob Orton Jr. and Elaine Orton.
Randy Orton Biography (Age)
Randy was born on April 1st, 1980, and is descended from Cherokee. To protect him from the uncertainties of the wrestling business, his parents asked him to stay away from him and told him that a life in wrestling would mean that he would be on the road and always be separated from his family.
Randy attended Hazelwood Central High School where he honed his wrestling skills by fighting in amateur fights at school. He left high school in 1998 and joined the United States Marine Corp. Randy had always had a touch of bad behavior that he took with him to camp.
After being absent without leave twice and disobeying a commanding officer, he was discharged for bad behavior in 1999 and sentenced by a special court to a 38-day stay in the brig at Camp Pendleton. Despite the advice he received from his father, Randy made his wrestling debut in St. Louis Missouri in 2000. His father had no choice but to join the promotion and train him.
It was in 2001 when he made his big breakthrough and signed with the then World Wrestling Federation (WWF) where his training continued. His early career was interrupted by the defeat of Tommy Dreamer in his first official match at the WWF, but he lost no time and took his first win when he beat the hardcore Holly and soon became a fan favorite. Since that victory, his wrestling career has never looked back.

Aside from being an accomplished wrestler, Randy Orton also has a decent acting career; he was selected to star in the action movie The Marine 2 but was replaced in 2009 after a collarbone injury. He also played a supporting role in the comedy-drama That What I Am in 2011, and Randy was a bit difficult when he was replaced by his wrestling colleague The Miz for the movie Marine 3. This was due to his troubled past as a Marine, but he later recovered from this and played the lead role in the movie Reloaded in 2013. He also showed his versatility when he starred in the US network’s 2016 series The Shooter, where he played an ex-Marine leader of a militia group called James Richard in the fifth episode of the first season.
Randy Orton’s Family, Wife, and Kids
Randy comes from a family with a proud wrestler heritage, not only his father but also his grandfather Bob Orton Sr. was a professional wrestler. His brothers are Nathan Orton and Roderick Orton and his sister Becky Orton. As mentioned above, his parents are Elaine Orton, who is a nurse, and Bob Orton Jr. The man has an uncle named Barry, Barry Orton.
Not everyone is lucky enough to marry his high school heartthrob, but Randy was lucky enough to marry his longtime girlfriend Samantha Speno on September 21, 2007. But tragically, Orton and Speno were divorced on July 12, 2013, after they had already separated in the later months of 2012. The wrestler remarried Kimberly Kessler on November 14, 2015.
Randy’s first child and his daughter Alanna Marie Orton are descended from his first wife and were born on July 12, 2008. His second child was born by his second wife Kimberly on November 22, 2016. The baby was named Brooklyn Rose Orton.
His Height and Weight
As a professional wrestler, Randy should be in top shape. But then it wouldn’t be fair to just think of him as a guy in shape. Randy is more than that, he is indeed a beast of a man (in a flattering way) He stands at an intimidating height of 6 feet 5 inches and weighs about 110 kg (243 lb).

Is Randy Orton Gay?
Randy was suspected of being gay when Triple H accused him of being gay in 2006 and told the WWE community to google “Randy Orton Gay Community” to see his erotic pictures.
As embarrassing as this was, it’s best to consider it a WWE publicity stunt. It wouldn’t cost the outlet anything to get Randy’s pictures on a gay porn site, and after Mr. Randy’s two marriages, one can safely say that the man is not sexually attracted to his sex.
