Randy Orton is a true veteran in the pro wrestling world as he has competed in WWE for almost two decades. However, as with all careers in pro wrestling, it will eventually come to an end.
While speaking on The Kurt Angle Show on AdFreeShows.com, Randy Orton talked about hanging up his boots in the future. Orton stated that he had no desire to become a parody of himself and would end his career when Orton’s body could no longer keep up with the physical demands of being an active WWE Superstar.
Orton also added that his wife Kim Orton has promised to tell him when he has to retire.
“My big thing and my wife Kim has promised me, that if she looks at me and she thinks I’m becoming kind of a parody of myself or if I’m unable to do the things that the fans need to be able to physically see me do, in order for them to believe, you know, that an RKO still has as much sting as it once did. You know, if I can’t do all those things, she has promised me that she is going to let me know that it’s time to hang up the boots, and until then, I’m putting my trust in her, and I’m just going to enjoy what I do because I got great kids. I got five wonderful children. I’ve got a beautiful home—a beautiful wife. Life is really good.”
Randy Orton certainly has a lot left in the tank so it will still be a long time until he hangs up his boots. Orton is currently teaming up with Matt Riddle on Monday Night RAW and we will have to see how WWE will book them.
