"Orton, as reported by WWE.com was sent home from the tour for unprofessional conduct, which I am sure will most likely cost the 3rd generation star some hard-earned cash. Nonetheless, Orton will most likely be in Atlanta Sunday, and if he is not I will be surprised. Orton is not unlike many young athletes who reach fame and fortune at a young age and have issues handling it. I read about it seemingly every week regarding athletes from the NFL, MLB, NBA, etc. That certainly doesn’t make it right, as there are only so many “second chances” to go around and it would be a damn shame to see any young talent self destruct and permanently damage their career because of utilizing poor judgment"
Jim Ross is very lax with his words in this post from his blog. He basically is saying that Orton is just another kid that is having a hard time with his fame and fortune. He even goes as far as to call him a GOOD kid!
A good kid?
No way. This guy trashes a hotel room to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars and we're suppose to believe that it's because he cannot handle fame?
Give me a break. This guy is a jerk.
Jim Ross is in denial, and I do not believe that he should get another chance. This won't be his second chance, it will be his thirtieth! The guy doesn't even generate that much heat.
I hope the WWE gets smarter about letting talent do whatever the heck they want over seas.
I'm glad they sent him home. Good riddance!
