• Randy Orton Took A Shot At Shawn Michaels Recently
During an appearance on The Ringer Wrestling Podcast, WWE Legend Randy Orton was asked if he’ll become a Part-Timer down the line.
Below is what Orton said:
“That’s that sought after ‘oh, WrestleMania and get the summer off, come back for SummerSlam, disappear till Survivor Series’.
I think Shawn Michaels was doing that, Taker was doing that for a while. I don’t want to do that. I think doing that burns you out.
I think wrestling once a week for me, like wrestling once a week would be ideal for me. And that’s kind of where I’m at right now.”
Orton then took a shot at Shawn Michaels, by talking about the moment where HBK hit a Moonsault on The Undertaker and Kane at Crown Jewel 2018 and the landing being rough:
“I don’t want to have two shows a year because I think that’s when you do a moonsault off the top buckle to the floor on two 30-year veterans and you almost break your neck.”
