There are two ways to get a job in the WWE. The first is hard work, dedication, and a little bit of luck. The second is to punch Randy Orton in the groin.
An Independent wrestler known as Jozi the Wrestling Machine went with option number two last week when he attacked Orton in the ring.
According to TMZ, Jozi the Wrestling Machine, real name Tshepo Sekhabi, was hoping to make a name for himself when he attacked Orton during an event in South Africa. Jozi told the website ENCA that he attacked Orton because he wants to be a wrestling star.
Tshepo said: “I just don’t like Randy Orton; this was an opportunity for me… so I got up there and made a name for myself.”
Tshepo did make a name for himself. Of course, he also got a black eye, (Randy Orton reportedly kicked him in the face after the incident) got arrested, and could soon be hit with a lawsuit.
A spokesman for the WWE said that Orton has not decided if he is going to pursue legal action against Jozi the Wrestling Machine. The spokesman said that Orton is “considering pressing charges.”
What do you think about Jozi’s stunt? Will he land a job in the WWE? A lot of people would probably tune in to see Randy Orton beat the **** out of Jozi the Wrestling Machine so it is possible.
