Randy Orton wants to continue his wrestling career
Randy Orton wants to keep up with his wrestling career till the time he is 50. His fans can have a sigh of relief as he doesn’t want to retire anytime soon. Here is what he has to say:
“I’m 41,” Orton states. “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.”
How many times in a week will Randy like to have a match?
In the interview Randy was asked if he wants to continue with WWE has a part timer or not. Few other wrestling stars including Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker are playing the wrestling matches’ part time. However Randy isn’t interested in this thing at all. He believes wrestling once a week is a necessity even if it means a tough schedule and less rest. It helps keep him in ring-shape and offer the best performance to the wrestling fans.
“That’s that sought after ‘oh, WrestleMania and get the summer off, come back for SummerSlam, disappear till Survivor Series,’” Orton said. “I think Shawn Michaels was doing that, Taker was doing that for a while. We 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. Schedule-wise, I don’t think anyone knows this and I don’t care if they do, but I think I’m maybe one of the only guys that have an amount of dates that I’m contractually obligated to do’.
