Benoit & Orton & Drugs & Suicide
… Let’s Go Over it Again
In the current issue of the authoritative Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer notes that “there still appears to be no explanation that makes any sense as to why Randy Orton wasn’t suspended.” Meltzer is referring to the revelation over the summer that Orton had received packages of banned substances from Internet gray-market dealer Signature Pharmacy as recently as February of this year. Yet there were no consequences.
Meltzer’s remark provides a useful context for revisiting the report here of Orton’s 2006 suicide attempt. I continue to call on Orton and WWE to come clean about it. There are connections that I believe anyone not firmly planted in deny-all quicksand would acknowledge.
