• Randy Orton Reveals When He’ll Retire From WWE
During an appearance on The Ringer Wrestling Podcast, WWE Legend Randy Orton revealed that he will wrestle for 9 more years, and plans to retire at the age of 50.
He also revealed that he gives auditions for acting roles every now & then, for a possible acting career after his in-ring career in WWE is over.
Below is what the 14-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion said:
“I’m 41. By the time I’m 50, I think I’m done. But I’m not like, I’ll do auditions every once in a while, but I almost only do them because my wife says ‘oh do them, because what if you don’t? Then you’ll wonder what if you did.’
So I do auditions here and there, crossing my fingers that I don’t get a callback because I love what I do. I don’t want to stop. I don’t want to have to stop, because of my body.
So I’ve taken it upon myself to make sure I’m doing everything I can on the daily that physically I’m able to continue. But if it was up to me, and I knew physically it wouldn’t be a problem, I’d say I’d wrestle until I’m 50 years old. And I would go out and have that last match when I’m 50 and be able to say I did it on my own terms.
That’s 9 years from now. But I don’t see an end to my career any time soon. I’d like to continue to go.”
Orton has been a full-time Superstar in WWE for 20 years now.
