What Led To Randy Orton’s Suspension, Rikishi’s Son Training

– F4WOnline.com reports Randy Orton’s second violation of WWE’s Talent Wellness Program stems from a positive drug test for elevated levels of testosterone. He was telling people that he took a tainted supplement containing the testosterone, causing him to fail. Orton reportedly said he didn’t do it on purpose but acknowledged that he should have been more careful.

– Tamiko Fatu, the youngest son of former WWE Superstar Rikishi, has been training with his father at the Knokx Pro Wrestling Academy in Sun Valley, California. Tamiko is either 18 or 19 years old and facially resembles his father.

– The first week of pre-orders for the THQ’s WWE ’13 video game were up 250% compared to WWE ’12.

– WWE is selling ticket four-packs for this Sunday’s No Way Out pay-per-view event at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The packages are selling for $60.

    Doubt your father had all of these testosterone drugs at his access during his day and he was one of the best in the ring, if he didn’t need to take them, why would you?

    • mrchopper

      It doesn’t have to a be a drug containing testosterone to elevate testosterone levels.

        Different world.

      Just like you would pop positive for high amounts of xenoestrogens,simply by drinking today’s milk from the grocery store along with various antibiotics, products can be tainted with just about anything that supplements unlike medication, supplements are not controlled by the FDA. Meaning these companies can put anything they want in their supplements and the FDA doesn’t regulate them, which I think is completely unfair to hold an entertainer accountable, if the company doesn’t have to disclose the ingredients how is the entertainer suppose to know? I think if the WWE wants to prevent this sort of thing from happening, they need to put some cooks in the kitchen themselves and let them come up with a unique formula for a supplement that is official and complies with their “wellness policy”. Assuming that what Randy says is the truth, and he is not just minimizing the issue to avoid backlash. No pun intended.

    they’re up 250% because this game will be heavily influenced by the attitude era, arguably the most lucrative era wrestling has ever had.

    • Forceton Banfodder

      Or maybe they’re up because WWE12 was such a huge glitch festival of disappointment that people are ready for an improved version.

      • Dey_See_Me_Trollin

        @Forceton_Banfodder:disqus I’m with you on this ’12 was just bad. I’m waiting for user reviews of the game to see if it is worth buying even though the promos looks pretty good. Til then WWF No Mercy on my N64.

        • wizard

          im against u about this, i thought 2011 was much worse 4 glitches nd im not sure but i think the attitude era mode is the exact same thing as rtwm except its in the 90’s

      • BrahmaBullRKO

        I’d say both, but more-so because of it being Attitude Era-based.

      • brainlazer

        WWE 12 was awesome. You probably never even played it in your life. Or only the WII version.

        • Forceton Banfodder

          I play it every day. And every day I’m annoyed by the crowd chanting glitches, game play glitches, shit server timeouts and everything the latest patch did not fix. The only thing they fixed that I appreciate was the limb targeting system which used to freeze when using a CAW. Oh and fuck Wii.

          Yeah. A guy happens to not play a video game because he has a different opinion than you. That makes total sense.

          WWE 12 sucks. Deal with it. The Road to Wrestlemania storyline, while well written, is far too short. The CAW mode still sucks and hasn’t improved at all, and while they hyped the game to play better than previous versions, it’s really not all that different.

          But let me guess, according to you, since I say it sucks, I haven’t played it, right.

          Your argument fails.

    • miss melly

      doesn’t really matter what the reason is, THQ has been in trouble money wise, and IP’s with increasing growth and profitability is really what they need to keep em alive right now

  • Reality

    And you have CM Punk on the cover instead of Randy :D lol jk, it’s the heavy influence of the Attitude Era

  • pwnez

    I’m waiting for the article that reads: “Breaking News: WWE releases Randy Orton.” Maybe it will happen…maybe not.

  • WWF Attitude

    I can’t wait for WWE 13 to come out

  • IKeepsit100

    Cena snitched….we all know LOL jk

  • G.I.R.L.

    The Usos’ also have Rikishi’s face. I’m starting to believe that children of wrestlers have no skill in anything else at all.

    • tgabriel0891

      cody begs to differ

      • Elgwyn

        You can also add Natalya. :)

        • Pauly


      • G.I.R.L.

        What do Cody and Nat do besides wrestle? That was the point I was making.

        • tgabriel0891

          watch his guest appearance on warehouse 13, dude can actually act

        • WWEFAN1995

          you don’t know their personal life, so they could do a shitload.

          • G.I.R.L.

            No, but I do know about their professional lives (in most cases) and that’s what my comment was regarded to. Did you delete your other comment?

            In response to the other one, I’ll say that I don’t feel it is due to persuasion by their parents. I feels it’s because they don’t want to do anything else and feel that they will excel since they’d be a 2nd or 3rd gen performer (which we know isn’t always the case).

            Or, in the case of Brooke Hogan, they may suck at every other thing they tried and now want to be “just like daddy”.

            I wouldn’t know, it’s all speculation on my part.

    • WWEFAN1995

      Not saying its true, but maybe its because they are trained from childhood to adulthood or they are persuaded down the wrestling path by their parents.

    They have to knock it off with this randy orton crap. NOONE cares! you have been saying the same thing every Article about him.

  • brainlazer

    WWE 12 is an awesome game. I know the online isn’t the best but it’s a thousand times better than any of the old smackdown games. The moves are more realistic and the matces are better paced, and anyone who says different is obviously just making opinions without having played the game. Either that or you only played the WII version. And YES I am looking forward to reliving the attitude era in WWE 13.

    I did it ….. for my dad

  • Nick

    WWE ’12 was a mess. A lot of glitches & constant disconnecting on Live. The only thing influencing me to buy WWE ’13 is the Attitude Era.

  • Yep

    I hope they fix the crowd always chanting Punk Sux glitch
