TMZ cameras caught Randy Orton coming out of a L.A. restaurant Thursday night.(which aired Friday on the show). The camera man asked him if he would wear a “wrestling hat” like Rey Mysterio. Randy said: It’s a wrestling mask and I think Rey Rey would be upset if he heard you say that”. Also, they asked him if he would ever guest host TMZ like John Cena just did, he said he would. Hulk Hogan was on The Wendy Williams show on Friday promoting his new book. The few things he talked about:His divorce from Linda. His engagement.
