Randy Orton has been around as a pro-wrestler for a long time. As he still continues to make strides, fans wonder when will he just retire? However, Orton is of the opinion that his longevity in the field will be the foundation of his legacy.

Appearing on the The Ring Wrestling Show podcast, Orton he was asked about what he considers to be his own marking on WWE. He replied that it is his longevity that will become what he is most remembered for.

When I came in, if you were over, that meant that everybody in that arena was wearing your T-shirt. If you were over, that meant you were Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, Triple H, Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena, that’s over. Randy Orton ain’t over. I’ve had more matches on TV than any other WWE Superstar in the history of the company. That’s my legacy, the longevity.

The Viper also spoke about how people tend to him that he’s over. However, Orton, things that since he’s been around for such a long time, he has become a household name which has led to him being over with the fans.

But I would always hear from the guys, and I’m closest with that I have a hard time accepting the fact that I’ve had an amazing career and I know I’ve had an amazing career, but both guys will say ‘Oh, you’re so over. Wow, what does it feel like to be over? Wow, that reaction you got. Oh my god, you did this, and it was a bigger reaction than that whole match or this sequence of false finishes that these two guys did. This little facial expression you did is so much more than that.’ And I think that being around so long and whether you love me or hate me, whether you think I’m boring because I work a headlock for 20 minutes, like just being a household name because I’ve been around so long is why I get that reaction.

Randy Orton named many WWE superstars he admires and it is his intention to work with those people. He added that when you compare his to the kind of pop superstars like Stone Cold received, he considers that is a star going over.
