Randy Orton opened up about his past confidence issues on the road to becoming a wrestler, during his appearance on the Pat McAfee Show.
Orton revealed that when he was younger, he didn’t think he’d be able to follow in the footsteps of his father, ‘Cowboy’ Bob Orton.
Noting that he now loves putting smiles on faces, Orton said:
“It was kind of a confidence thing, like I never looked at myself and thought, ‘There’s the f**king man right there’. I didn’t know how to build myself up, I didn’t look in the mirror and see someone capable of following in my father’s footsteps.
“Getting bullied as a kid and s**t like that, I kinda went through that, but all kids deal with that right. I think it’s helped me now, I see the kids in the front row, being a father too, a lot’s changed in my life from when I was in my 20s. But I see these kids and, man, they make my day, putting a smile on a kid’s face, especially those 8, 9, 10 year old girls.
“I have two daughters that I’m just wrapped around their finger. I love my three sons too but there’s something about those little girls. And it’s funny because in my 20s I used to be looking for the chicks in the audience.”
