During an interview with Sports Illustrated, Randy Orton talked about working under Vince McMahon in the past and now working under Triple H & Nick Khan. Orton said he likes working for HHH and Nick, and that WWE is so much better now and explained why. Below are the highlights:

What changed in WWE after Triple H and Nick Khan took over from Vince McMahon:

“So much happened while I was out. When I left, the old guard was still doing its thing. Vince was still around. TV’s were getting rewritten over and over again. The writers were being held up until all hours in the morning. All that changed.

I am excited to work for WWE. Nick Khan is amazing. Triple H being in charge of creative is amazing. I’ve had a relationship with him for over 20 years. I went to his wedding back in ‘03. We’ve been at odds before when I was a f**k up when I was young, and I won him back.

He’s seen me go from an adolescent a$$hole prick who didn’t know what I was doing – I was an insecure punk, that’s what I was. I’m the oldest sibling in my family, but he’s like an older brother to me in many ways. He’s always been there and had the best of advice.”

Not getting time off to heal from injury back in the day:

“Throughout the course of my career when my back was shot to sh*t, there were many times I went to the powers-that-be and said I’d have a longer career if I was off some of these shows so my back could heal up.

Instead of 20 days overseas in Europe, I’d say, let me do just 10–or miss a TV once a quarter. I was denied at every turn. ‘I’m sorry Randy, I need you at these shows’. ‘Sorry, Randy. Mother Nature gets us all’.

Since I’ve been back, post-spinal fusion, and I’m talking like Chicago Survivor Series, Triple H and Nick Khan reassured me to come to them if I needed anything and they’d take care of it.

They’ve already proven they weren’t full of sh*t when they said that. If something is bugging me and I don’t want to put my body through a physical toll of a match, I can still make the TV, cut a promo, and hit an RKO or two. That is going to enable me to do this for a long time.

I’m very happy with the changes, and I’m very happy that Nick Khan, Triple H, Bruce Prichard and all those guys are proving they mean what they say.

The company changed, and they care about the talent. I think everybody feels the same way.”
