‘The Viper’ is a 14-time World Champion

Randy Orton is one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, who has been in WWE since 2002 and has been actively working since then. Orton has been on the journey with WWE for a long time and attained major success in the company. He is a 14-time World Champion and is a guaranteed future Hall of Famer.

The 44-year-old recently appeared for an interview with Sportskeeda WrestleBinge, where Orton was asked about the changes he has been experiencing in the new Paul “Triple H” Levesque era compared to the Vince McMahon era in WWE.

Randy Orton on Vince McMahon’s WWE departure

Randy Orton said that he loves Vince McMahon for giving him opportunities, but he feels that it is time for him to move on. He addressed his unfortunate departure from the company.

“Off the top of my head — and, listen, I love Vince, he gave me so many opportunities. But I think it was kind of time for him to move on. It’s unfortunate that it happened in the way that it happened.”

Randy Orton compares Triple H’s Era with McMahon Era

Orton went on to compare Triple H’s governance with Vince McMahon’s and said that he is now able to spend more time with his family and kids, when compared to McMahon era.

“It’s nice having people in charge of me that understand how important it is for you to be home for birthdays, and home for Thanksgiving, and home for Christmas. Vince McMahon, he had Raw on Monday night live. He doesn’t care if you have kids.”

Randy Orton’s memory with Vince McMahon

Orton remembered an incident pleading to McMahon for recovery, where McMahon denied his request and made him work for the show.

“I came to him when I was 35 and my back really started going and I pleaded with him like, ‘Man, I got to like not do as many shows, maybe do half the tour and be able to recover. And he just looked at me and was like, ‘Oh, I need you on those shows, Randy. Mother Nature gets us all. “And to hear that and go, ‘Ok, well I guess there’s no other thing I can do other than just wear myself out down to the nub until I can’t walk anymore for this man.’” 

Randy Orton says it’s nice to have Vince out & Triple H in

Randy then thanked McMahon for giving him opportunities but said that it is nice to have him off-from WWE. He said that Triple H & Nick Khan have been doing great and everyone in the TKO group is feeling it.

“And all of the opportunities he gave me, it’s nice having him out of there. And it’s nice having his son-in-law Triple H running the game. Nick Khan’s great. Everybody at TKO that’s come in [and] stepped in, they seem to get it. And it’s just a different era… I think the way that they care for talent nowadays and make sure that talent’s good and if they need a little bit of a break, we’re only human, they get it, most of the time.”
