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. It seems he opened up about his feud with Bray Wyatt last year as well.

Randy Orton will certainly be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Famer once he hangs up his boots. Many fans also wonder just what Orton will do when he does retire from in-ring action.

Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt took part in various feuds over the years, their most recent being the storyline with himself and The Fiend along with Alexa Bliss. It was one of the major storylines towards the latter half of 2020 and the beginning of 2021.

While speaking on The Ringer Wrestling Show, Randy Orton reflected on his feud with Bray Wyatt. He admitted that parts of the feud were rough and he just learned to roll with the punches.

“I was doing Fiend stuff a year ago. That was hard. Some of that was rough. They put me in the burn mask one week and the next week I’m out of it and my skin healed. It’s tough. Then you go to, who you would imagine you go to when you have a gripe, and go, ‘Hey, I can’t do this. Aren’t they gonna….’ [Vince impression], ‘Just do it. It’s going to work.’ ‘Okay.’ Roll with the punches.

You go out there and do your best job. Even though I’m lighting a dead guy on fire and he’s the babyface…I had a very hard time trying to make that real, but I feel like I did a good enough job to where even though it was a little cringe-worthy for some people, because I really tried to believe I was going through this, I think it helped people buy into it a little bit more while we were suspending that reality and trying to make them believe like they would if they were watching the most recent Halloween movie. They want to believe and be entertained so, the more I can accept that and make it real and make it something that I’m feeling and not just words that some 22-year-old writer wrote on paper for me, if I believe it and make it mine, I can get them to believe. That’s what kind of changed with my promos.”

Bray Wyatt would ultimately be absent from WWE television since his WrestleMania 37 match against Randy Orton and was released by the company a few months later. We will have to wait and see whether Randy Orton will end up winning the Royal Rumble match and get yet another shot at getting a WrestleMania moment.
