Randy Orton and Drew McIntyre will clash this weekend at WWE’s Hell In A Cell event – and the Viper has sent a message to his opponent.
The Apex Predator is gunning for the Scotsman’s WWE Championship, and naturally he’ll need to be in top condition for their gruelling match inside one of wrestling’s most formidable structures.
To get himself in the zone, Orton has revealed a special Hell In A Cell workout playlist which comes ‘straight from the voices in his head’.
It’s wall to wall bangers, including Jake Bugg’s Me And You, Ciara’s The Champion and *NSYNC classic It’s Gonna Be Me.
However, there’s something deeper going on here, as the tracks actually spell out an ominous message for McIntyre going into this Sunday’s battle.

Popping in our own punctuation for clarity, the warning reads: ‘Drew, I can’t wait. Sunday night, me and you, locked inside. I’ll make you feel pain like never before. The title, the champion, it’s gonna be me.’
Drew’s yet to respond with a playlist of his own, but we’re sure Orton will be wishing he was 500 Miles away by the time Sunday rolls around.
The WWE Champion recently caught up with Metro.co.uk, and insisted his opponent ‘got away with murder’ earlier in his WWE career.
The Viper has been very open about his attitude problems as a rookie in Vince McMahon’s company, but he kept his job despite situations where many others were let go – including the Scottish Psychopath.
He said: ‘I was obviously aware of it. I didn’t get jealous, I never had that mentality but it was interesting to hear.
‘I never saw it at the worst, I guess – I heard the stories from the people that were there. I saw enough that I spoke about during the promos live on television. There’s a lot of truth to this story, and the things that Randy got away with.
‘He says himself, he should have been fired a lot of times. The truth is, he was so good, so talented and had so much potential, that’s why he got away with murder.’
The current WWE Champion was released from the company six years ago after dropping down the card and becoming part of the 3MB comedy act.
He went onto make a triumphant return and the rest is history, as detailed in his recent WWE Network 24 documentary.
