Randy Orton Married to Wife Samantha Speno - Info & Pics
(Orton's actress-wife on screen, Samantha)
In the real life of Randy Orton he is in fact married to Samantha Speno, but that's not the woman who appeared seated next to him on the March 9th, 2009 episode of Raw (Youtube video here). The woman pictured above is an actress and not Randy's real wife who you can see in the pictures below. According to pwinsider.com, the woman playing the role of Samantha was former Playboy playmate Laura Croft (Miss July 2008). Lucky for the stunt double Samantha during Triple H's break-in she wasn't Pedigreed on the kitchen floor as retaliation for the nasty RKO that Orton gave to Stephanie.
The pictures below feature Orton and real wife Samantha together. One photo is at an autograph signing as well as Orton and Speno attending the WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony. Notice in the second picture that Orton has a love-inspired tattoo of "Samantha" inked on his right forearm.
After getting engaged in 2005, Orton and Speno tied the knot back on September 21st, 2007. On July 12, 2008, Samantha gave birth to their first child, a daughter named Alanna Marie Orton (info source: Wikipedia.org). Orton has reported before that he's generally shy outside of the WWE and wrestling ring. The story of Orton's meeting with Samnantha Speno, while unconfirmed, is that Orton was recovering from a foot injury and a buddy took him out to a bar. While there, Orton spotted Samantha, took a seat next to her and asked for her phone number. Samantha told him if he could memorize he could have it, and the rest is history. Orton was said to also have previously dated WWE Diva Candice Michelle, but then fell in love with his current wife.
Speaking of WWE Divas, this also puts an interesting perspective on that whole Kelly Kelly love story which was used for just a few episodes. Orton said it was "just one night" and it involved a brief feud where Kane had been demanding that Kelly reveal who she had interest in. Of course that whole story seems to be history now as WWE is working with the Triple H versus Randy Orton for the WWE title match at Wrestlemania 25, but based on what's been seen involving Edge, Vickie Guerrero and Big Show, it just might come back to haunt Orton at another time.
