Many consider Randy Orton the greatest WWE Superstar of all time, and it’s easy to see why—he’s achieved virtually everything a wrestler could hope for in their career. He is now part of WWE’s new regime and has revealed how WWE’s creative process has changed after Vince McMahon’s exit.

In an interview with the Adam’s Apple YouTube channel, Randy Orton talked about how the creative process has evolved since Vince McMahon stepped down from overseeing it. With Nick Khan, Triple H, and Bruce Prichard now in charge, Orton highlighted the shift toward more long-term planning.

“With Nick Khan, Triple H, and Bruce Prichard, so many things have changed from a creative standpoint. They’re thinking months and months and months in advance. Before, we were kind of flying by the seat of our pants. Creative was changed minutes before we went live each week. I don’t mean sometimes. I mean, each week creative was changed. It’d be 05:00 p.m.

The Viper noted how it is no longer a frustrating and stressful environment like it was in the past as WWE puts more thought into crafting their storylines.


”You’d be on the East Coast going live in two or 3 hours, and you wouldn’t know what you were doing, you know, and that’s a very stressful environment, and you’re not going to have the best product in the world if you’re doing it like that every week. So just purely from a creative standpoint, you’re able to let it marinate and think about, okay, how am I gonna do this? Or how can I make this better? Or maybe there are tweaks, but you don’t do it ten minutes before you go live.”

Randy Orton has revealed when he plans to retire. Kevin Owens and Randy Orton took on Solo Sikoa and Tama Tonga at Backlash Premium Live Event last week, where they lost after debuting Tanga Loa cost them the bout. It remains to be seen how WWE will continue to book Randy Orton and The Bloodline’s feud in the coming weeks.
