Randy Orton was experiencing a kind of second youth before a back injury forced him into the pits. The Viper has written important pages in WWE history, having been the youngest world champion ever. In addition to being a 14-time world champion, the 42-year-old from Knoxville has won the Raw Tag Team Championship twice and once each the Intercontinental title, the United States Championship, the World Tag Team Championship and the SmackDown Tag Team Championship, becoming thus the tenth in history to have completed the Grand Slam.
He has also won the Royal Rumble match twice and the Money in the Bank once. In a recent interview with 'Wrestling Inc.' , Tommaso Ciampa revealed that he would love to face Orton once the 'Legend Killer' is back at 100%.
The former NXT champion made his main roster debut on April 11, 2022, but has struggled more than expected to carve out an important space. With the advent of Triple H, he hopes to finally take off.
Tommaso Ciampa reflects on Randy Orton
“I want to participate in all WWE pay-per-views.
I would love to win all the titles and earn the respect of the fans. There are tons of guys I'd be happy to work with: I'm referring to Finn Balor, AJ Styles, Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins. I traveled with Seth and I have to admit that he is a fantastic person.
The first one I would like to fight with is Randy Orton, once he has recovered from his back injury" - said Tommaso Ciampa. A guest in the latest edition of 'Insight' with Chris Van Vliet, the legendary Ric Flair said that Orton has an excellent chance of breaking the record of 16 world titles.
“I doubt they will win another world title for a part-timer, even if he is a legend of the caliber of John Cena. I think Randy has a better chance of breaking the record of 16 world titles. I hope that he will be able to solve this back problem and that the operation is not necessary."
WWE RAW Superstar Riddle recently provided an update on his tag team partner, Randy Orton. "Randy is still recovering from his injuries, and hopefully, he'll be back sooner rather than later. I can't say anything more than that because I'm not a doctor!
Randy is in high spirits, and he's doing well," said Riddle. Riddle added that he hopes his tag team partner could be back "sooner rather than later."
