There have been rumors on the internet that someone has started & apparently, it has got around that WWE Hall Of Famer, “Cowboy” Bob Orton Jr. had passed away. His son, Randy Orton, as well as Smackdown Live head creative writer, Brian “Road Dogg” James, immediately shut the rumors of Orton Jr.’s death.
Stuff about my dad is a rumor.
