His height and weight
As a professional wrestler, Randy should be in top form. But then, it would be unfair to consider him a fit guy. Randy is more than that, in fact, he’s a beast of a man (in a complementary way). He stands at an intimidating height of 6ft 5in and weighs around 110kg.
Is he gay?
Randy was suspected of being gay when in 2006 Triple H accused him of being gay and asked the WWE community to google “Randy Orton Gay Community” to see his erotic photos.
Embarrassing as it is, it’s best considered a WWE publicity stunt. Getting Randy’s pics on a gay porn site would cost nothing at the point of sale. After Mr. Randy’s two marriages, it is safe to say that the man is not sexually attracted to his gender.
