Randy Orton reveals how long he will keep fighting

During the 'The Wrestling Ringer' podcast, Randy Orton talked about his current deal with WWE and some of his teachings from some of the big names in wrestling. On the time he has left to keep fighting in the ring, Randy Orton said: "I'm 41.

By the time I'm 50, I think I'm done. I do checks every now and then on my wife's advice. I do tests here and there crossing my fingers that I don't get a I call because I love what I do. I don't want to stop. I don't want to have to stop because of my body.

I took it upon myself to make sure I do everything I can every day to be able to physically continue being in the ring. If it was up to me, I know that wouldn't be a problem. It's been nine years from now. I don't see the end of my career soon.

I would like to continue for the moment."

The latest news on Randy Orton

On his WWE contract, he revealed: “Fighting once a week would be ideal for me and that's what I do right now. I think no one knows and I don't care if they know or not, but I think I'm one of the few guys who has a number of dates that I'm contractually obligated to make.

There are 80 shows a year. It sounds like a lot of work, but after doing one PPV a month and shows every week, you have about 15 or 20 live events left. Those are Saudi Arabia, European tours and live events at Madison Square Garden.

I think with wrestling once a week, I am able to keep my joints well trained and still feel fit enough to keep fighting. If I take a bad hit and hurt my neck, I'll take a week off. I think this is what will make me able to fight until I turn 50." On his personality change, Randy Orton said: “You always learn from your mistakes.

Every now and then there will be a cameraman or a light man who has been with us for a long time and he will say 'Remember that time when you did this...' They will continue to tell a story in front of different people. They will talk about you in the worst possible way because of that thing.

And it's embarrassing. I think being a father has changed me. I think my wife opened my eyes along with the others. I was lucky to be behind the scenes with many athletes who didn't mentor me but taught me different things”.

On his teachings from other athletes: “I learned a lot from John Cena and a lot from Edge too. With him in recent months. Being a father, being a pro wrestler and traveling were important things to me and I was lucky to have some great men in the locker room who went through all of that.

I think my best thing is longevity and being able to be one of those who have got to fight everyone. Seeing new generations of athletes with a more modern mentality arrive. I think in general this has helped me a lot as a human being as well.

If anything, now I can have more fun in the ring because I don't take everything else so seriously."
