Randy Orton has been the cornerstone of WWE for over two decades with his career taking off to an excellent start as a member of the popular faction, Evolution alongside industry greats like Triple H and Ric Flair.

However, the first sight of Randy Orton’s credibility as a top champion was memorable in his own right when The Viper won the World Heavyweight Championship at the WWE SummerSlam 2004 event.

Moreover, not only did Orton clinch his first World Championship that night, but his win made him the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in WWE history, claiming the title at the age of only 24.

While speaking to Bill Apter of Sportskeeda Wrestling,, Orton gave his candid opinion on any WWE superstar breaking the record. According to Randy, he did not see anyone young enough on the current roster to become the World Champion as he did at 24 years old.


“As far as someone becoming the youngest World Heavyweight Champion and taking that from me, I don’t see that happening. “Only because I think it was a very special circumstance when I became the youngest World Champion. I was 24 years old, and I don’t know if there’s anyone young enough to make it to that yet. “So I think I’m gonna hold that for quite some time, if not from here on out.”

Despite not being allowed to take time off due to injuries in the past, Randy Orton has been on an incredible run since returning to WWE last year. With Orton revealing that he still has a lot of years left under his belt, we will have to wait and see what is next for WWE’s Apex Predator.

Do you think any WWE superstar of the modern era can break Randy Orton’s long-standing record of becoming the youngest World Champion? If yes, who do you think can clinch it? Sound off in the comments!
