In a recent interview with Kurt Angle as part of The Kurt Angle Show on, WWE RAW superstar Randy Orton discussed several topics, including how he was very uncomfortable with the “Eddie is in Hell” storyline and who gave him reassurance.

“100% not comfortable with it, Rey assured me that it’s something that Eddie would have wanted. Even still, Rey and myself went to Vickie and Vickie gave us her blessing, she said the same thing, Eddie would have wanted to help you guys in this manner, if he could have used his death in some way to help the business, as morbid as that sounds, he would have wanted us to do it, especially with Rey being involved, so although it was a horrible tragedy and we all lost a friend, it was something that helped me along the way in my career.

As a bad guy talking about that, that’s heat, it worked and it helped with the angle between me and Rey, but looking back, it will always be something that was a little, there’s a lot of things I’ve done in my career that made me uncomfortable, I think we can all agree on that, but that in particular, was something that I put at the top of that list.”
