He left yesterday night’s WWE world tour in Cape Town with a black eye and swollen face after getting kicked just under the eye by Orton.
Sekhabi told the news outlet that he planned to attack Orton when he attended the event, saying, “I just don’t like Randy Orton, this was an opportunity for me so I got up there and made a name for myself.”
The article noted that Sekhabi was not “formally” arrested but was given a five year ban from the casino resort where the WWE event was being held and was thrown out of the resort’s hotel, where he was staying.
WWE was asked whether Randy Orton would apologize for kicking Sekhabi and responded, “Randy Orton was the victim in this incident and suffered an injured groin.”
