John Cena talks about Randy Orton

Randy Orton has had a very long career in this business, as well as being the youngest world champion in WWE history. The Viper was having something of a second youth last year alongside Matt Riddle, until a back injury forced him to take a long break.

The pain became more and more intense and his return to the ring was continually postponed. The 14-times world champion was convinced by doctors to undergo a fusion surgery on his lower back, with the hope of giving himself one last ride on the carousel in 2023.

Fans are hoping to see the 'Legend Killer' at least at Wrestlemania 39, but it's really impossible to make predictions given the age and nature of the injury. It's no secret that Orton had several issues relating to other wrestlers early in his career.

Randy 'saw' his ego skyrocket after joining Batista, Ric Flair and Triple H. The four formed the 'Evolution' faction in 2003. During a recent interview, the legendary John Cena analyzed in detail the evolution of Randy Orton in and out of the ring.

“First of all, Randy Orton has become a good boy” – John Cena began letting go of a hearty laugh. “I'm kidding, but it is undeniable that Randy's career can be divided into two phases.

Old Randy was a f *****o. The company and the other wrestlers put up with him because he was talented, but it wasn't easy to deal with. There have been some incidents that have made him change his attitude. He started putting everything into perspective and the new Orton was born.

The new Randy is a really smart guy” – added the 16-times world champion. The 'leader of the Cenation' recently returned to SmackDown and will certainly be among the protagonists of WrestleMania 39, which will take place a stone's throw from Hollywood.

John Cena's return to in-ring action on this week's SmackDown was a bad booking decision, according to former WWE writer Vince Russo. "What could John Cena possibly do that was bigger than what Steve Austin did, bro?" Russo said.

"To me, it's such a freaking waste. I swear, it's an absolute waste for them to bring Cena in for this angle because it means nothing. You don't bring a guy like this back for a tag match. Come on, I don't care how desperate you are for ratings." In April, Steve Austin defeated Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 38 in his first WWE match since 2003.
