Randy Orton Talks Undertaker’s WrestleMania Legacy & Match Against Roman Reigns

WWE Superstar Randy Orton spoke with Yahoo! Sports this week to promote his match against Bray Wyatt for the WWE Championship at this Sunday’s WrestleMania 33 pay-per-view. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On how The Undertaker being on the card adds to the allure of WrestleMania: “I think ‘Taker and ‘Mania go hand in hand. It’s unfortunate that he picked up a loss a few years back, I think that was wrong and I think everyone would agree with me for the most part with the exception of maybe Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar. I don’t believe that that loss tarnished his career, I just hate that his streak was tarnished.”

On The Undertaker vs. Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33 this year: “‘Taker is going to face Roman Reigns and that’s going to be a good one. I honestly believe that should be the last match on the card, I think that everybody will be happy with the outcome of the match. I expect the Undertaker to throw Roman Reigns around like a rag doll. Roman Reigns is going to get his, but at the same time, this is the Undertaker we’re talking about.

“Will [Undertaker] be around after this? If this is his last one and there’s speculation, all I can say is I hope not. Whether it was twenty years ago or today, when he comes to the ring and the gong hits and the music plays, the energy in the arena, it’s not like that for anyone else. I don’t care if its [John] Cena, Shawn Michaels or whoever, it’s a different kind of energy and he’s got more respect from the fans than I think any character or superstar has ever had in our business.”
