Randy Orton commands respect not only from wrestling enthusiasts but also from every single wrestler in WWE and beyond, even if some people don’t necessarily like him. Having been at the top of the food chain for many years, Orton recently offered great advice about dealing with depression to a fan.

The Apex Predator made his triumphant return to WWE television during the Survivor Series Premium Live Event last year. In the months since then, Orton has shown off a level of physical prowess fans haven’t seen from him in over a decade.

A fan recently took to Twitter and revealed the conversation he had with Randy Orton when it came to dealing with depression. Randy Orton shared his own struggles with depression with the fan, especially during the 18 months he was sidelined due to injury. He shared that he was told his career might be over, which put him in a terrible headspace for six months. Orton emphasized that depression is a real issue, and overcoming it requires finding motivation to start something positive and becoming consistent with it.

For Orton, the turning point came with his back healing, adopting a healthier diet, and properly working out, which led to visible results. He encouraged the fan to find any activity that shows progress, even if it involves selfless acts like helping others. Orton talked about human resilience and urged people not to give up.


”Nobody is immune to Depression. I was out for 18 months, was told my career was over. For 6 months I had a terrible headspace. You have to find the motivation to start something, and then continue it, become consistent at it. Something healthy. For me, it was my back healing, eating right, hitting the gym properly and seeing the results. Look for anything that can make you see the improvement in whatever it is you’re doing. Even if it’s selfless acts, like helping others less we are resilient. Don’t give up.”

As for Randy Orton’s current direction in WWE, he is feuding with The Bloodline alongside Cody Rhodes and Kevin Owens. Nonetheless, Orton’s advice is certainly useful for anyone dealing with depression and is certain to help them.
