Randy Orton Shells Out $20,000 So His Family Can Attend WrestleMania

Randy Orton

Randy Orton may have defeated The Fiend Bray Wyatt on WrestleMania Sunday but it cost The Viper a pretty penny for his family to see him in action.

Orton and Wyatt opened proceedings on Night Two of WrestleMania in a typically bizarre match for The Fiend. Wyatt was released from a jack-in-the-box at ringside by Alexa Bliss to enter the match. During Orton’s entrance, the Legend Killer poked fun at a slip the night before by Mandy Rose.

Randy Orton picked up the victory after nailing Wyatt with the RKO. The Fiend had been distracted by Bliss who was oozing black liquid all over her face allowing The Viper to then pounce.

The fourteen-time world champion has taken to social media to comment on WrestleMania. Orton then also divulged the price he had to pay to have his family in attendance.

Orton wrote:

“WM. Historic. One of a kind, only here at #wwe you can see the spectacle! Also, I was charged 20 thousand dollars for my family (wife and 5 kids) to watch dad rassle fight a demon…. and WIN!”

There’s been no word as to what the $20,000 was for. Orton was not the only WWE Superstar to have his family in attendance at the show. Bianca Belair’s parents were shown celebrating at ringside after Belair won the SmackDown Women’s Championship on WrestleMania Saturday.

Tickets for WrestleMania had been put on sale with prices starting at $35, then going up to $2500. Both Saturday and Sunday nights attracted a limited capacity sell-out crowd of 25,675 fans.

This WrestleMania marked Randy Orton’s seventeenth appearance at ‘The Grandaddy Of Them All.’ This puts Orton in a three-way tie for third-most WrestleMania appearances. Also on seventeen are WWE Hall Of Famers Shawn Michaels and Kane. Triple H then comes second on the list with 23, only beaten by The Undertaker with 27 WrestleMania appearances.
