WWE is now honouring Randy Orton Week till today, which celebrates Orton’s 20th year in the pro wrestling business. Orton made his official WWE TV debut on the April 25th, 2002 broadcast of WWE SmackDown, when he defeated Hardcore Holly in a one-on-one match.
The WWE has produced a new video of Orton reflecting on his finest accomplishments as part of his 20th year in the business and the company’s tribute to The Viper.
In that video, the Apex Predator appears in the ring alongside WWE Superstars Triple H, Mick Foley, John Cena, The Rock, Shawn Michaels, Roman Reigns, and others. Orton was asked near the end of the video about his WWE legacy, which he thinks will be similar to that of WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker, who never signed with another promotion and still makes appearances for the WWE. When Roman Reigns gets to Hollywood, the Viper also stated that he will still be in the WWE in his prime and that he still has a long way to go because he wants his legacy to be that he did it way longer than anyone else has or will.
Randy Orton stated the following:
“A lot of people ask me what I want to leave behind. I believe you’re referring to WWE, and my legacy will be that I was the only person, after The Undertaker, who never left and had more matches, titles, and awards than anyone else. I don’t give a damn… I’m sure Roman Reigns has Dwayne Johnson’s agent’s phone number memorised. I’ll be here while Roman is in Hollywood. Ladies and gentlemen, I’m in my prime, and I’ve still got a long way to go. My legacy will be that I was the first to do it.”
