Randy Orton mocks Brock Lesnar for his failed drug test

Published 1 Comments

The WWE Battleground pay-per-view was last night and it has to be said that the event was a success. 

Bayley made her main roster debut to team up with Sasha Banks to a huge pop, while Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens put on a spectacular match to close out their rivalry for the time being and Dean Ambrose managed to retain his WWE Championship by pinning a returning Roman Reigns in the Shield triple threat match.

The event also saw a WWE return for Randy Orton, who came back from nearly nine months out last night. The Viper wasted no time in making his mark, mocking Brock Lesnar for his failed drug test.

Orton was Chris Jericho's guest on a special edition of The Highlight Reel and the two were naturally discussing his upcoming match against Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam next month.

Orton was saying that Lesnar could suplex him 20-odd times and take him to Suplex City, but that it only takes one RKO to go to ViperVille. And then he dropped the disrespect.

"No enhancement needed," Orton added with a smirk.

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few months, you will know that Brock Lesnar failed two USADA drug tests before and after his fight against Mark Hunt at UFC 200.

Lesnar is alleged to have taken some estrogen blockers in the build-up to the fight, which is usually a sign of a fighter being on a testosterone cycle. It is the same type of drug that Jon Jones also tested positive for.

Because of the positive tests, Lesnar is facing a two-year ban from the UFC, putting an end to any thoughts he may have been having about another fight.

After making his comments, Jericho said that Orton was "going to pay" for saying no enhancement needed and Randy agreed. They won't be talking about Lesnar there, though, rather Vince McMahon, who may be punishing Orton for bringing up the failed tests.
