“The hardest thing Randy Orton has done is the RKO” – Booker T

• “The hardest thing Randy Orton has done is the RKO” – Booker T

During a recent episode of his Hall Of Fame podcast, WCW Legend Booker T talked about Randy Orton completing 20 years on the WWE main roster.

Below is what the 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer said:

“Randy has been a worker. Randy has been a guy that’s been in the trenches. Randy has put in work and he’s done it in a way to where I can really appreciate what he’s done because Randy has been the ultimate entertainer.

Randy is going to be one of the guys that walks away from this business just by the way he’s gone out and performed inside the squared circle. He’s not a guy that has beat his body.

I think the hardest thing Randy’s done is the RKO. That’s going to be the hardest thing that he has done as far as putting pressure in one certain place on his body throughout his career, and I don’t think that’s a move that’s going to put you in a position where you can get damaged.

I look at a guy like (Diamond) Dallas Page. Dallas was able to get away with doing that move for many, many years because when you do it, you’re laying out. The guy that’s taking it is in more of a position for something to happen than you are.

Randy has definitely played his cards as far as his career goes to the letter. What a great career.”
