Below is a clip Michael Cole’s latest sitdown interview, featuring Randy Orton this week. The full interview will air on this Thursday’s WWE SmackDown.

Cole asked Orton why he said what he said to Rollins before saying he was just joking. Orton said he was sending feelers out and it was entertaining. Orton said he had a lot of fun messing with Rollins and The Authority.

Orton said it’s been hard being around The Authority for a few weeks but to let it all out on RAW, it felt like the weight of the world being lifted off his shoulders. Orton said he enjoyed every second of beating Rollins on RAW.
