John Cena and Randy Orton carried WWE during the PG era. They were the biggest stars of that era. WWE posted a video on YouTube where Orton looked back at the most impressive moments of his career. Here’s what he had to say about John Cena.
“I love John, he was my favorite opponent. Coming up, through my career, I learned a lot from him. I just remember it being like, every other match I had with John. Especially, big match John… whether it was Manias, SummerSlams, Royal Rumbles, you name it. He always had the crowd in the palm of him hand. It was a little because they loved him so much, or they hated him so much. He understood how to get those emotions from them. It wasn’t just some coincidence. Dude’s a genius. I miss you, John. I miss you.”
Randy Orton also responded to a Hall of Famer’s kind words

Only a few actually make it to the very, very top of @WWE, almost no one can do it for 20 years. I’ve had the honor of watching @RandyOrton do just that; and become the star, the performer, the leader, the man and the father I always knew he would.
Congrats on 20 years, Randy!

Randy Orton is one of WWE’s best heels ever. His in-ring work is equally commendable as his character work. The Viper is 42-tears-old and enjoying one of the best runs of his career as Raw Tag Team Champion. He has shown no signs of slowing down.
