In a revelation that casts a shadow on the otherwise illustrious career of WWE veteran Randy Orton, details have emerged about a tumultuous chapter in his early years, marked by anger issues and backstage controversies. The startling information comes from former WWE Diva Rochelle Loewen, who, during her brief stint in the company from 2003 to 2005, found herself entangled in a turbulent relationship with the then-hotheaded Randy Orton.
Loewen alleges that on her debut day in December 2003, Randy Orton, now universally beloved by fans, engaged in destructive behavior as a response to being rejected after attempting to initiate a romantic connection. According to her account, Orton went so far as to smear lotion and baby oil on her expensive belongings, creating an atmosphere of hostility that lingered throughout her short-lived tenure with WWE.
Former WWE Superstar Renee Dupree provided additional context during a recent appearance on Cafe de Rene, shedding light on the circumstances surrounding Orton’s actions. Dupree explained that Orton’s attempt to make advances towards Loewen ended in rejection, triggering a vindictive act of destroying her possessions. Contrary to erroneous rumors circulating at the time, Dupree clarified that Orton did not defecate in Loewen’s bag but opted for a different form of vandalism, utilizing tanning lotion to ruin her clothes.
“Now, the story I have heard is that he defecated in her bag. That wasn’t it. He put tanning lotion all over her clothes in her bag, probably because Randy tried to hit on her. And Randy, I’m telling you, was not, had no game. Women have a sixth sense. They can smell confidence, and they can smell insecurity when a guy is trying to be a player but not very good at it. Randy was not very good at it. Now, Mark Jindrak was good at it. He had that, I don’t know, he had that charm. He could do it. Randy didn’t. Randy didn’t have it. He really didn’t.

But what would happen was when a girl would like blow him off, he would get mad, throw a temper tantrum like a small child. Yeah, he never defecated in her bag, but he put tanning lotion. But I believe she was a California girl, so, you know, she had that high-end clothes and stuff, like really, really expensive clothing that was probably just ruined. I remember her. She was sick hot, but (…) You know who dated her or went out on a date with her was Jindrak.”
Dupree went on to illuminate Orton’s reaction to rejection, describing it as tantrums reminiscent of a small child. However, it is crucial to acknowledge that individuals can undergo significant personal growth over time, and Orton, in particular, has evolved both personally and professionally.
Rochelle Loewen’s WWE tenure was brief, with her departure in 2005 marking the end of her time with the company. The allegations against Orton shed light on the challenging environment that sometimes exists behind the scenes in the wrestling world, where personal relationships and emotions can spill over into professional interactions.
Thankfully, Randy Orton’s journey has seen remarkable transformation, and he is set to make a likely appearance at Survivor Series for the WarGames match on November 25th. As the wrestling community reflects on this revelation, the question arises of how WWE will navigate Orton’s past in the broader context of his celebrated career. This incident serves as a reminder of the complexities that can arise within the world of professional wrestling, where personal dynamics often intertwine with the scripted narratives presented to the audience.
