Randy Orton is a true veteran in the pro wrestling world as he has competed inside the squared circle for almost two decades. He has earned the respect of fans and fellow WWE Superstars and is viewed as a proper locker room leader.
Randy Orton is also praised as one of the best in-ring workers in the business right now regarding his in-ring psychology and storytelling. Orton is a 14-time World Champion and has managed to remain as a mainstay in WWE thanks to his character work.
WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross recently revealed that he considers Randy Orton the best pro wrestler in the world and chose him over Kenny Omega. This sparked a huge debate as to who is truly the best pro wrestler in the world right now.
Many fans and pro wrestlers have shared their thoughts regarding the matter and now it seems someone who is very familiar with Randy Orton revealed his opinion as well.
While speaking with Daily Star, Kofi Kingston talked about the current ongoing debate and then stated that Randy Orton most definitely deserves to be in the conversation of being the GOAT.
The whole premise of ‘who is the best’ [is] really subjective. As far as Randy is concerned, I think he has the ability to do so many things so well.
“He looks a certain way, he flexes in a certain way… you feel that. That’s the stuff that makes you great and not just good. What Randy does is unique in that way – he does so much without doing anything at all, so I’d have to put him in the conversation as being one of the greatest.
To be able to last so long… he’s even more compelling now in a lot of different ways. So as a performer, you can’t have the conversation [about the greatest] without having Randy be in there, from the longevity alone. That doesn’t happen by accident.”
Orton has proven to be one of the best in the world right now and that’s unlikely to change. Randy Orton is also currently teaming up with Matt Riddle as Team RK-Bro on Monday Night RAW and remains a highlight of the show.
