Who Is Randy Orton’s Girlfriend?
Following a six-year marriage to Samantha Speno, Randy Orton has discovered love again with a woman by the name of Kim Marie Kessler.
The WWE Superstar has been dating the mother of three from New York since at least February 2014—this is when photos of the two spotted together began surfacing online.
While celebrating his 34th birthday in New Orleans, Louisiana, “The Viper” took the opportunity to go public about his new girlfriend by by posting this photo on Twitter. A few days later, the couple attended the annual WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony together.
Not much is known about Kessler, but her relationship with Orton has caused drama for WWE. In August 2014, the twosome called a member of the WWE Universe a pig!
On the afternoon of August 3, 2014, Kayla Gomez took a photo with Orton outside of a gym in Texas and posted it on social media. Shortly thereafter, the multi-time WWE Champion sent out the same photo to his Twitter followers, but added a rude caption.
“Look @kimkiro I met the Latino Ms. Piggy today at the gym. I wish you were there to have a good laugh with me! #MsPig,” Orton tweeted.
Kessler tweeted back, “Thats what @kgomez325 gets for always talking shit about me. Your (sic) not the only one who can play games.”
TMZ then reported that Kessler had problems with Gomez in the past, which led Orton to block Gomez on Twitter for sending messages harassing his girlfriend.
The tandem might have been having a good laugh, but fans of “The Viper” were not pleased. For instance, one disappointed fan stated on Twitter, “I lost all respect I had for @RandyOrton after reading that last tweet. You should be ashamed of yourself.
Orton apologized for his behavior on August 4, 2014, stating on Twitter, “I apologize if any of my previous tweets offended anyone. The answer to bulling isn’t more bullying.”
Meanwhile, Gomez lashed out at the WWE Superstar for blocking her account on the micro-blogging platform. She stated, “Let’s get one thing straight. @RandyOrton blocked me because I said his balls were in his girlfriend’s pocket. #RandyOrton.”
Orton addressed Gomez again after the August 5, 2014 SmackDown taping in Laredo, Texas, stating on Twitter, “I blocked you because you’ve been stalking and harassing my girl for too long now. Then stalking me when I had no idea who you were for a pic, just so you could use it to again, to harass my girl. You waited outside the gym to get to me! That’s called stalking! I dare you to get a freaking life or just go be a troll somewhere else.”
Orton, who is known for his turbulent behavior—both on screen and off–is certainly not afraid of anyone and we can bet that his girlfriend was happy to be defended by him.

Why Did Randy Orton Miss Raw?
June 23, 2015 – In case you didn’t notice, Randy Orton did not appear on Monday Night Raw this week. He missed the show as well as the weekend tour because he is on vacation in Bora Bora. Here are photos he’s been posting on Instagram.
Going Strong With Randy Orton
Orton’s legacy began in April 2002, when he debuted as a member of the SmackDown roster. As the son of “Cowboy” Bob Orton, many predicted great success for the multi-generational wrestler. But the young competitor refused to rest on his Hall of Fame bloodline. Instead, he used his undeniable in-ring talents and undeniable in-ring talents and unpredictably explosive personality to emerge as one of WWE’s rising stars.
It wasn’t long before Orton’s exploits caught the eye of Triple H. Recognizing Orton as the future of WWE, The Game quickly took the up-and-comer under his wing and welcomed him into his Evolution faction, which also featured Ric Flair and Batista.
As a member of Evolution, Orton became recognized as a legitimate threat to any championship. In December 2003, he claimed his first title when he defeated Rob Van Dam for the Intercontinental Championship. Orton’s reign proved to be one of the longest un recent memory, lasting an amazing seven months.
By the summer of 2004, a young Orton had accomplished more in WWE than most Superstars can claim in an entire career. Unbelievably, however, he was just scratching the surface. At SummerSlam in 2004, he permanently etched his name alongside history’s greatest when he captured the World Heavyweight Championship. At just 24 years of age, Orton was the youngest to ever hold the gold.
Swelling with confidence, Orton planned to follow up his title reign with something no other Superstar had ever accomplished: Defeat Undertaker at WrestleMania. Ultimately, Undertaker’s undefeated streak proved unconquerable. But that didn’t stop Orton from topping the “Deadman” in subsequent contests, including a No Mercy Casket Match. When it was all said and done, the rivalry between Orton and Undertaker emerged as one of the decade’s greatest.
By the fall of 2007, John Cena was enjoying a seemingly untouchable WWE Championship reign. But following a grueling match against Mr. Kennedy, an unsuspecting Cena was brutally attacked by Orton. Like a viper, the sly Superstar slithered toward Cena and delivered a merciless RKO that put the champ on the shelf for several months and ended his year-long title reign.
Mr. McMahon awarded the vacated WWE Championship to Orton at No Mercy. His reign, however, lasted a mere minutes. Shortly after being named champ, The Viper lost the gold to former ally Triple H. Later that same night, Orton made history when he defeated “The Game” to reclaim the title.
The No Mercy battles helped rekindle one of the most emotionally-charged rivalries in recent history. Over the next few years, Orton and Triple H continued to go to war over the WWE Championship, including main event matches at WrestleMania XXIV and WrestleMania XXV.
In late 2008, Orton forged a partnership with fellow multi-generational WWE Superstars Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase. Collectively known as Legacy, the Orton-led alliance ran roughshod over WWE, picking up wins over Triple H, Batista and Shane McMahon, among others.
Part of the secret to Legacy’s success was Rhodes and DiBiase’s willingness to sacrifice themselves for Orton’s greater good. But when the young duo’s interference became more of a hindrance to Orton, Legacy began to crumble. In the end, Orton proved his superiority over his former allies, defeating them in a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania XXVI.
On his own, Orton continued to shine as one of WWE’s brightest stars. He pinned Sheamus to claim his sixth WWE Championship in September 2010. And later, he defeated CM Punk at WrestleMania XXVII, but not before punting nearly every member of Punk’s Nexus to the sidelines.
Orton was drafted from Raw to SmackDown in April 2011. The change in scenery did little to slow his amazing momentum. Within days of the move, The Viper defeated Christian to capture his second World Heavyweight Championship. A few months later, he topped Christian again for the same title, proving that the WWE Universe is living in the Age of Orton.
Randy Orton Joins Forces With The Authority
On July 14, 2013 at Money in the Bank, Randy Orton continued his winning ways by defeating Christian, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Rob Van Dam and Sheamus to win the Money in the Bank All-Stars Match for a WWE Championship Contract, which earned “The Viper” an opportunity to challenge for the WWE Championship at a time of his choosing within the next year. At SummerSlam on August 18, 2013, Orton cashed in his Money in the Bank contract on Daniel Bryan, who had just captured the WWE Championship from John Cena. Chief Operating Officer of WWE Triple H shocked the world by Pedigreeing the new champion, allowing Orton to become WWE Champion for a seventh time—”The Game” also counted the pinfall victory. The following night on Raw, Orton was endorsed as the “face of WWE” by WWE Chairman and CEO Mr. McMahon and the newly formed Authority—Triple H and WWE Executive Vice President of Creative Stephanie McMahon—during a WWE Championship Coronation.
At Night of Champions on September 15, 2013, Orton lost the WWE Championship to Bryan after being struck in the head with a running knee. Triple H, however, stripped Bryan of the title the following night on Raw, citing referee Scott Armstrong’s conspicuously fast three-count at the end of the match as evidence of a conspiracy to overthrow Orton as champion. The following month at WWE Battleground, Orton and Bryan faced off for the vacant title, but the bout ended in a no contest after a troubled and conflicted Big Show interrupted the night’s main event, laying waste to both competitors in a fit of frustration. At Hell in a Cell on October 27, 2013, Orton once again challenged Bryan for the vacant WWE Championship, where he was successful in regaining the title after special guest referee Shawn Michaels struck Bryan with a swift Superkick for attacking Triple H.
Randy Orton Injured, Could Miss Significant Ring Time
October 20, 2015 – Randy Orton missed last night’s Raw due a shoulder injury, Dave Meltzer is reporting on Wrestling Observer Radio. Orton will have an MRI to determine if he’ll need surgery, and if that’s the case, he could miss significant ring time.
This is the last thing WWE needed with John Cena missing November. Orton does have star value in his name and is a key attraction for many casual fans. He would have been one of the names WWE counted on in Cena’s absence.
“Randy Orton has a shoulder injury. He has a dislocated shoulder, he’s having an MRI soon to find out if he needs surgery,” Meltzer states, “he had been working with an injury and it got worse, it dislocated in the last week or so, and it was really painful for him.”
Orton does have a history of shoulder injuries, and this news doesn’t sound good. If the surgery is required, he’s going to be out a while. He’s already featured much less this year, so losing him again is going to make 2015 Randy Orton feel like a bit part player on Raw.
WWE storylines explained that Orton suffered the injury at the hands of the Wyatt Family. He also missed the Mexico tour this past weekend. There’s no word yet on why Luke Harper missed Raw.
