WWE Star Randy Orton

The guy who attacked WWE Superstar Randy Orton during a live event in South Africa yesterday turned out to be a wrestler after all ... but not one who works for the WWE.  

According to Enca.com in South Africa ... 20-year old Tshepo Sekhabi -- an independent wrestler who calls himself "Jozi the Wrestling Machine" -- told the site he hoped to catch the attention of WWE officials by going rogue and jumping Orton after his match.

As we previously reported ... Tshepo snuck his way past security yesterday during an unscripted segment -- entering the ring and blasting the wrestler with a mean low blow.

Sekhabi told the site, "I just don’t like Randy Orton; this was an opportunity for me ... so I got up there and made a name for myself.”

Bad move -- because a case investigator says Sekhabi was instantly booted from the hotel that was hosting the event.

The investigator says Tshepo wasn't "formally arrested" ... but says Orton is free to pursue further legal action against Sekhabi.

A rep for WWE says Orton is "considering pressing charges" but no decision has been made yet.

I would like to ,make a siggestion to Mrs.Stephanie MCMahan, I am disab;ed, but I watch you aon the T.V. anytime your own. I can't get help to get from my care to the arena; due to my suvere pain, I asked in Houston if I would be able to be in my wheelchair and I was told no. I would love to see you once in person, plus I would love to slap Vickie Guerro, with the way she wynes excise me, which she knows the crowd would boo her and I am hopeing to get my knee reapaired before Dec. 19,2013. Also why isn't there a tag team for the Divas, now that we have three hours on Mondays. it would make the men really happy to see more Diva action. You keep it pg for our children. I watch TNA, and I am glad Rob Van Dam is on the WWE Roster, he was getting no where with TNA. They actually try copying you to raise their ratings, but you can't trust no one. One minute there your friend and the next minute they try to kill RVD when he won the TNA belt he was out for several months. He
s as good as Cena and Randy, he gives 110 percent to his universe., and Vicky told us she hates us; but if it weren't for us sacrificing money that could go to a good cause we put it in your hands. We do help pay those Paychecks to the wrestlers. My husband shuts the doors to where he is at because I get frustrated when the wrestler waits to get a reaction from the croud and by that time it over, the dude is back on his feet. And you need to make a roster of all the ones who have had a belt and see how it can help the ones who like the Big Show and Mark Henry and a few others. I would make Raw my prioritty so that all the wrestlers' get some action in the ring as well. Like JTG and Paul Heyman needs to leave. He hires people like Brock to claim fame for hisself, and I think Punk took time off and watched how fast it took him to get him another pay check, Best friends don't lie like heyman does. airhartdenise@sbcglobal.net, I would love to be the manager and I wouldn't be lookingat my phone and twittering; because I want all the wrestlers to play it safe. Like the night Kofi Kingston was put though not q bt three tables and where was the people to stop him. That night I screamed and said "stop him, come on, he's going to really hurt Kofi". Kofi comes out when others have been wedged in due to those guys who say they are for Justice.
