Former WWE Superstar Tehuti Miles (fka Ashante Adonis) has revealed how Vince McMahon asked him and his Hit Row stable mates to perform.
Along with Isaiah Scott (fka Swerve Strickland), Top Dolla and B-FAB, Miles’ most significant run in WWE came as a member of the faction known as Hit Row. The group quickly won over NXT fans before moving to WWE’s main roster in 2021.
Speaking on The Angle Podcast, Tehuti Miles recalled what McMahon told him and his team when they arrived on the main roster. He also described what the President told them about how they should view themselves as performers.
“Vince McMahon told us, like in Hit Row, he told us to our face that this is a movie production and we’re the actors doing our own stunts,” Miles said. “It’s from Vince McMahon. So if he says that, maybe people should start thinking about it a little differently.” (7:50 a.m. to 8:08 a.m.)
After moving to SmackDown during the WWE Draft in October 2021, the group couldn’t find the same main roster success they enjoyed on NXT. The entire stable was released by the company just weeks after their SmackDown debut.
Randy Orton describes his relationship with Vince McMahon
Randy Orton is a 14-time world champion, and he hasn’t been shy about his past transgressions as a young WWE Superstar.
Speaking on The Pat McAfee Show, Orton opened up about his current relationship with McMahon. He noted that the President is seen a lot in The Viper.
“It’s been long and steady and growing,” Orton said. “In the beginning, most of our encounters were because I was screwed. I was very lucky because he liked me. It’s kind of like a father figure on the road.” Orton added: “He knows some of the issues I’ve been through. We’re on a bit of a different level and I think he sees himself in me a bit. I think that’s why he liked me. ” (H/T Combative)
