The WWE is now performing shows over in the UK this week… and in this video above, here you see WWE star Randy Orton (who is tag team champion with Matt Riddle) fist bumping fans at ringside ’cause Randy is now a babyface currently. As Randy was fist bumping and smiling at fans, he notices a young child fan is in trouble. This young fan, a little kid seems to be struggling in the crowd and was about to get squashed at the security barricade.
As you can see Randy immediately gets out of character as in getting out of his wrestling gimmick for a while to help a young fan struggling. What’s happening here is that fans are going a little crazy, hoping to get a fist bump by Randy and trying to get a closer look at the superstar but these rabid fans are not watching out for the little ones. Fans can get a little rabid and rowdy at WWE shows as well.
As you see in the video, Randy is not afraid to put his hands on fans and push them back and he’s not afraid to tell ’em to “move back”… which is cool… the goal is to give the kid some breathing room. As you can see Randy very protective of that child and a WWE security staff came to assist Randy.
What I love the most about all this is that Randy put the belt down to help that young fan…. clearly showing you that Randy feels that the belt is not really all that important… a child’s life goes first.
Why is Randy like this? Well Randy is really good with kids ’cause he is a father of his own… he has two daughters. In WWE, Randy may play a bad guy and heel a lot but in real life, Randy is just a normal guy and a family man himself.
Wrestlers really are good people and they really care for the fans. They wrestle ’cause they perform for us to begin with. They wrestle because they want to entertain people so yeah, a lot of wrestlers really care for the fans who go to the live shows. I’m sure Randy is really good with the young fans that go to his autograph signings and meet & greet events.
What Randy did here was pretty heroic, heroes don’t always wear capes.
