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 there is a good reason for that. Orton also explained issues he had working with Bray Wyatt.
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 Pat McAfee Show, Randy Orton talked about working with Bray Wyatt. Orton explained why he had issues working with Wyatt, but praised him nonetheless.
“Edge made me realize, I can go 45 minutes with a guy that knows what the f**** he’s doing. Where are these other guys that know what the f*** they’re doing? They started to come up. Bray Wyatt was there, I worked with him, it was a little odd. There were some issues where I think he wasn’t able to do some stuff in the ring for a while. That got weird, but he’s a hell of a talent. Riddle, for the last year, he’s only been wrestling for six years, but he gets it. He knows how to sell and he captivates those people. He captivates me.”
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. Orton is happy in this stage of his career and that is what matters in the end for him.
