Randy Orton made his triumphant return to WWE television at the Survivor Series Premium Live Event last year to thunderous applause. He also got incredibly jacked after his return and Orton has finally disclosed if he intends to keep his current physique.

While speaking to Sports Illustrated, Randy Orton talked about his current physique. Orton revealed that after he had surgery, he changed his diet and was eating well. He noted that after six months post-surgery, he did things at the gym he was never able to do in his 30s.

“I had the surgery, things were going well, and I changed my diet–and I started packing on a few pounds,” said Orton, 43. “About six months post-surgery, I was able to do things in the gym that I hadn’t been able to do my entire 30s. I was able to start working on my glutes and my hamstrings and my lower back, and I had no pain.”

The Apex Predator further added that he went from 240 pounds to 280 and right now is sitting at 275 pounds, which he feels is what he should have been all his life but his body simply could not sustain it before.


”Man, I went from 240 pounds to 280. I’m 275 right now, and I feel f—— fantastic. I feel like I was meant to be this weight my whole life, but my frame wasn’t able to sustain it until this fusion.”

The Viper is currently set to compete at the Men’s Elimination Chamber match at the Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event on February 24th. We will have to wait and see if he will be able to win the bout in Perth, Australia.
