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.
Randy Orton, also known as “The Viper,” has been inactive since May 2022 due to an injury. As of now, there is no official word on when he may return to WWE.
On a recent episode of Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw, Basham explained why he did not expect Orton to achieve much in wrestling:
“The guy that surprised me the most was Randy Orton. When he came in, he was a skinny, fat kid. He was lazy. ‘I’m just here because I don’t know what else to do.’ He was just a young kid. He was okay at wrestling, and then all of a sudden he just flipped a switch. One of the best workers in the business now, I think. The kid really surprised me.”
