Randy Orton Botches Raw Promo With Matt Riddle

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 past couple of 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 last month and since then they have been engaged in a feud with Chad Gable and Otis. Randy Orton and Matt Riddle took part in an academic challenge with Alpha Academy and it concluded on this past week’s episode of Monday Night RAW.

Randy and Riddle made a pot brownie joke during the segment but Orton messed it up. There was a question about how many grams are in an ounce. Riddle was getting ready to talk about calibrating his scales and how he knew the answer. Orton cut him off with the following:

“You think I’m the only one that bakes, bro? There are exactly, precisely, 28 grams in one ounce, thank you very much!”

Despite the botch, fans loved the segment and that is what matters in the end.

During a recent appearance on The Wrestling Ringer podcast, ‘The Viper’ hinted at potential retirement plans, saying he would like to keep going in the squared circle until he hits the age of 50 years of age. Currently, Orton is 41. Credit to Wrestling Inc for the below quote.

“I’m 41,” Orton said. “By the time I’m 50, I think I’m done. But I’m not like, I’ll do auditions every once in a while, but I almost only do them because my wife says ‘oh do them, because what if you don’t? Then you’ll wonder what if you did.’ So I do auditions here and there, crossing my fingers that I don’t get a callback because I love what I do. I don’t want to stop. I don’t want to have to stop, because of my body.”
