Randy Orton

The Religion and Political Views of Randy Orton


Randy Orton was born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Orton is a Christian, but what denomination remains a topic of much speculation among fans, with most people leaning towards Catholic.[1] One fan even thought he would make a pretty good pope.[2] But no word from Randy himself.

He's at least Christian enough to get a bible passage tattooed on his arm:

Be sober be vigilant, your adversary the devil as a lion is waiting to devour you.[3]

That's kind of intense, but appropriate for a professional wrestler.

His theme song–which was written specifically for him[4] –includes some references to Christianity, although in a negative and questioning way:

You got your rules and your religion/ all designed to keep you safe/ but when rules start getting broken/ you start questioning your faith.[5]

But I think in this case permanently tattooing bible excerpts on his body trumps the music that plays when he's entering the ring. Let me know if you think I'm wrong.

About politics, we have no signs at all–no tattoos, no songs. Not even any rumors. Randy Orton has exactly nothing to say about the political world as far as I can tell. He hasn't endorsed a party or candidate, or spoken about any key political issues.

Do you have any insight into Orton's politics? Let me know in the comments.
