Randy Orton’s Storyline Disorder Possibly Linked To Steroid Use

WWE Superstar Randy Orton

The WWE explained On Monday night’s Raw, that Randy Orton’s recent rash of violent behavior has been due to the behavioral disorder IED (intermittent explosive disorder). According to a number of medical websites, IED is defined as “a behavioral disorder characterized by extreme expressions of anger, often to the point of uncontrollable rage.” Now, we’re not saying this is the only reason, but many medical websites link the disorder to steroids as IED can be made worse by steroid use due to chemical changes in the person’s brain.

News website Huliq.com posted an article yesterday regarding intermittent explosive disorder and Randy Orton was mentioned. They wrote: “Interestingly, according to recent reports, WWE wrestler Randy Orton has intermittent explosive disorder or IED. He says he’s been diagnosed with it, in fact. But it should be noted that some have posited that IED may be exacerbated by steroid use.”

For the record, Randy Orton has ties to past steroid use.

In March 2007, Sports Illustrated said the former WWE Champion was part of a steroid and HGH ring used by a number of professional athletes in several sports. The article mentioned several current and former WWE wrestlers, including Orton, who was alleged to have obtained clomiphene citrate, anastrozole and the steroids stanozolol, nandrolone, oxandrolone, and testosterone. WWE made a statement on the situation, claiming that the allegations preceded the Talent Wellness program WWE launched in February 2006.

However, it was later revealed that Orton continued to receive drugs until February 2007. Amidst the Signature Pharmacy drug scandal in August 2007, Sports Illustrated said Randy Orton received somatropin, nandrolone and stanozolol from September 2004 through February 2007, up until the online pharmacy was shut down by authorities.
