As previously reported, WWE is currently celebrating Randy Orton Week until today, which marks his 20 years in the pro wrestling business since Orton made his official WWE TV debut, when he beat Hardcore Holly in a one-on-one match on the April 25th, 2002 episode of WWE SmackDown. As part of Orton's 20th year in the pro wrestling business and the WWE paying homage to The Viper, the company has released a new video of Orton looking back at his greatest moments.
The video shows The Apex Predator sharing the ring with Superstars such as Triple H, Mick Foley, John Cena, The Rock, Shawn Michaels, Roman Reigns and many others. Towards the end of the video, Orton was asked what his legacy will be in the WWE, which he says will be parallel to that of WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker, who never signed with any other promotion and who to this day still makes appearances for the WWE. The Viper also said that he will still be in the WWE in his prime when Roman Reigns goes to Hollywood and that he still has a long way to go because he wants his legacy will be he did it way longer than anybody has or anybody will.
Randy Orton said:
“A lot of people ask me what my legacy will be. I think you’re talking WWE, more specifically, my legacy will be that I was the next guy after The Undertaker that was the only person that never went anywhere else and had more matches, more titles, more accolades. I don’t care…Roman Reigns, I’m sure he’s got Dwayne Johnson’s agent number on speed dial. Roman will be in Hollywood, I’ll still be here. I’m in my prime, ladies, and gentlemen, I got a long way to go. My legacy will be that I did it longer than anybody.”
