The 14-time world champion, who will make his 20th appearance in WWE on Raw tomorrow night, has carved quite a remarkable career since his debut on April 25, 2002, and he shows no signs of slowing down. Randy Orton developed a rapport with his big rival from 2020, who was also hinted at as a future Roman Reigns opponent, on the most recent episode of SmackDown.
Orton and his tag team partner Riddle are involved in a feud with The Usos. He’s been a tag team superstar for about a year and will be in one of WWE’s most desired tag team contests in years.
The Legend Killer, who recently celebrated his 42nd birthday and has risen to a new level as Raw Tag Team Champion alongside RK-Bro teammate Riddle, has previously stated that he plans to retire at the age of 50.
Happy birthday to the incomparable @randyorton! ????

Reigns, the current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, made his WWE debut in November 2012, and while the 36-year-old will be celebrating a decade in the organization later this year, Orton believes he’ll be sticking around long after the Tribal Chief has gone to Hollywood.
“A lot of people ask me what my legacy will be. I think, if you’re talking WWE more specifically, my legacy will be that I was the next guy – after The Undertaker – that was the only person that never went anywhere else, and had more matches, more titles, more accolades,” he told WWE.
“I don’t care if Roman Reigns… I’m sure he’s got Dwayne Johnson’s agent’s number on speed dial. Roman will be in Hollywood, I’ll still be here.”
Randy Orton has a chance to unify championships for the second time in his career.
As Randy Orton says that, “I’m in my prime, ladies and gentlemen. I got a long way to go. My legacy will be that I did it longer than anybody”. It is to be seen that he has been the tag team champion with Riddle for a year now. They have been the most desired pair in WWE history.
Randy Orton will attempt to make history by unifying yet another championship at WrestleMania Backlash. He defeated John Cena in 2013 to unify the two world belts.
This time, he is one-half of the RAW Tag Team Champions, and RK-Bro will take on the SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos in an attempt to unify the belts.
The Usos are the all-time longest-reigning SmackDown Tag Team Champions, so it won’t be easy.

This is something not a lot of superstars have done in their careers. Yet, here we see Randy Orton doing it for the second time in his WWE run.
Mark Henry believes the 42-year-old WWE superstar will be able to compete in the main event for the next ten years
Randy Orton, according to Mark Henry, has a lot left in the tank and can be an important figure in WWE for the next 8-10 years.
Mark Henry lauded Orton’s longevity and how he still has a lot to give on the main event scene on the Busted Open show:
“Randy may have another – without exaggerating – I think Randy’s got another 8 years, 10 years. That’s how long I can see Randy in the main event picture. Randy is such a handsome guy, if he has the passion for it, I’d love to see him be an old villain in Hollywood. He can do it. He can really do that.”
