Randy Orton Wants To Wrestle For Another Decade

Over the past year, Randy Orton has done arguably the best work of his career. Orton called his 2020 one of the three best years during his time in WWE.

Orton has been a featured player on WWE television since 2002 and though he's closer to the end of his career than he is the beginning, Orton hopes to remain active for another decade.

"I'll see pictures from five years ago where I'm like, 'I gotta get back to that kind of shape.' My wife brought it to my attention the other day, 'Back then, in 2014, when you looked like that, you thought you looked like shit.' You're never going to be happy. At 40, I want to wrestle another decade if I can. I know it's not about getting my pecs up here, like Bobby Lashley and Batista, it's about making sure my shoulder stays in. It's about longevity for me. I want to do this as long as I can. I don't see branching off to do this or that like a lot of guys do. This is my home and what I do. I am a professional wrestler," Orton told Steve Austin on Broken Skull Sessions.

Orton is one of the more decorated stars in WWE history and two WWE Championships away from tying Ric Flair's mark at 16 World Titles.

Elsewhere during the podcast, Orton discussed his relationship with his father "Cowboy" Bob Orton. You can view his full comments by clicking here.
