Dr. Pete and Steve of SportsTownChicago.com sat down with Randy Orton to discuss the release of THQ’s WWE ’12 video game, being “over the bitterness” of The Rock returning to WWE while being excited to see him face John Cena at WrestleMania XXVIII, and more.
Brock Lesnar in WWE ’12: “I think it’s great. I’m a big Lesnar fan and I’ve always been. We came up together about 10 years ago. Me and him were buds. We’ve lost touch over the years’ as you usually do with guys like that. But I wish him the best. I know he’s had a few health issues as of late. But he’ll conquer those, just like he’s conquered every other obstacle that’s come his way. I truly feel he’s one of the few human beings I’ve ever met that have been able to accomplish as much as he’s accomplished. He puts his mind, body and soul into it and he’s gonna get it done.”
Bitterness with The Rock: “As far as The Rock and myself are concerned, you know I’d love to see that [himself vs. The Rock], are you kidding me? That’s huge.
“Right now, the WWE Universe is geared to see Rock/Cena at Wrestlemania 28. And to be honest, I’ve caught a little bit of the buzz too. We all want to see it. The crowd is ecstatic. When he comes out, there’s nothing else quite like it, it really is. Sure, I hate that the guy is back. I wish I was in his spot working with Cena at Wrestlemania 28… but yeah, I’m happy that Rock’s back. I’m over the bitterness (laughs) so to speak with him being back saying he never left and all that BS.”
