Randy OrtonIt had been reported WWE decided to pull Randy Orton from The Marine 3 movie.

TMZ has a story up about the U.S. Marines being happy that Orton was pulled from the role due to his military background. In 1999, Orton went AWOL when he was serving in the United State Marines which led to a bad conduct charge.

Cpl. Mike Vinn told TMZ:

"On behalf of all the Marines from Aco 1/4 98-02, that were outraged to hear about Randy Orton portraying a Marine in the next movie "Marine: Homefront", I'd like to thank the WWE for pulling Orton from the role when they heard about his disloyal service to the United States Marine Corps. It shows respect for not only the unit I had served in, but for every person that has ever defended this nation. Thank you WWE."
