Randy Orton is a true veteran in the world of professional wrestling as he has worked in WWE for close to twenty years at this point. It seems he has a lot left in the tank and is more than determined to work in WWE for several more years. Triple H also recently approached for a replacement of Randy Orton.
For the few months, Randy Orton has been teaming up with Monday Night RAW Superstar Matt Riddle and together they have been known as Team RK-Bro and have been quite successful since their debut together. They even went on to become RAW Tag Team Champions after defeating AJ Styles and Omos at WWE SummerSlam back in August last year.
They would eventually lose the titles to Alpha Academy earlier this year and since then they have been engaged in a feud with Chad Gable and Otis. They then won back the titles and even defended them at WrestleMania 38. They lost the titles to the Usos and Randy Orton was written off WWE television due to a back injury.
On his Cafe de Rene podcast, former World Tag Team Champion Rene Dupree regales listeners with tales from his time in the WWE. Recently, he recounted an incident involving WWE legends Randy Orton and Bubba Ray Dudley. Dupree shared that Dudley had once berated Orton following a match, accusing him of causing injury. He went on to reveal that Orton had previously confided in him about Dudley.
“Randy broke his foot, or ankle, or… and Batista probably tore something, like he always does. Bubba hurt his back or something. And as Randy’s being loaded into the ambulance, Bubba comes and starts yelling at him, saying that he hurt him.” [0:53-1:12]
Dupree then shared what Randy Orton used to tell him about Bubba back in the day:
“He always told me how much Vince hates Bubba
