• “Almost no one can do it for 20 years” – WWF Legend Praises Randy Orton
In a few days, current RAW Tag Team Champion Randy Orton will complete 20 years on the WWE main roster.
Orton made his official debut on April 25, 2002 on SmackDown, when it was still the WWF (World Wrestling Federation).
WWE is currently celebrating “Randy Orton Week”, where they are looking back at Orton’s career with videos and never-seen-before photos.
The final opponent of Triple H’s in-ring career was Randy Orton. Here’s what The Game tweeted about his Evolution brother completing 20 years in the company:
“Only a few actually make it to the very, very top of WWE, almost no one can do it for 20 years.
I’ve had the honor of watching Randy Orton do just that; and become the star, the performer, the leader, the man and the father I always knew he would.
Congrats on 20 years, Randy!”
16-Time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena, who is arguably Orton’s greatest opponent ever, tweeted the following about his longtime friend:
“For 20 years Randy Orton has cemented his legacy as 1 of the greatest WWE Superstars ever.
I have the utmost respect for every achievement he’s earned & CONTINUES to earn.
But my genuine love & admiration for him is in his maturity & growth as a human being. Here’s to RKO! 🥃 “
