PostSubject: WWE Pulls Randy Orton from The Marine 3   Tue Apr 03, 2012 11:23 pm

- WWE has pulled Randy Orton from starring in The Marine 3: Homefront after several real Marines complained because Randy deserted them when he was in the United States Marine Corps before signing with WWE.

A WWE representative told TMZ.com that they demonstrated poor judgment in signing Orton for the movie.

WWE's rep told TMZ:

"Despite Randy's popularity, the fact that he was dishonorably discharged from the USMC made it inappropriate for him to be cast in this film."

Cpl. Mike Vinn, who was in a unit with Orton, became furious when he found out Orton was going to be starring in the movie. Orton received a bad conduct discharge in 1999 after going AWOL on two separate occasions and disobeying an order from a commanding officer. Orton ended up being court-martialed and served 38 days in a military prison.

Before WWE pulled Orton from the movie, Vinn told TMZ:

"I am disgusted that his face and the word Marine are being used next to each other -- real or fake -- because of the fact that he quit us, the country, and the Marine Corps. [Randy] in the role of a Marine is a disgrace to those that have worn and are wearing that uniform."
