Randy Orton’s retirement plans
The Viper had a fun and open conversation on ‘The Ringer Wrestling Show‘. Orton talked about his character changes, his new found love for cutting impactful promos, his family and many more.
Randy revealed that he wishes to retire when he is 50 years old. That gives him 9 more years in the company. Orton is currently part of the team RK-Bro along with Riddle. Team RK-Bro is one of the best things in WWE currently.
The 14-Time World Champion carried Monday Night Raw on his back during the ‘ThunderDome Era‘. The Viper portrayed a very vicious heel, taking out the legends like Christian, Ric Flair, Big Show, Mark Henry and even his former best friend Edge. The Viper resurrected the ‘Legend-Killer‘ in him.
Now being part of RK-Bro, Orton is portraying a totally different side of him. This shows that the Viper still has a lot more unique stuff to show the WWE Universe. If he has 9 years left, then we are going to see a plethora of new versions of the Viper, Randy Orton.
