AEW star Dax Harwood claims Randy Orton is the best wrestler in the world. The Viper made WWE history and recently celebrated his 20th year in the company, making him one of the longest-running performers of any era. The 14-time world champion is not going through a good moment, thanks to a serious back injury that risks ruining the last part of his career.
The 'Legend Killer' has been out of action for several months and there is no certain date for his return to the ring. After trying conservative therapy, Randy decided to have gentle fusion surgery on his lower back. The hope of fans is to see him in action again soon, but many experts are not so optimistic about the future of Orton.
Dax Harwood praises Randy Orton
In the latest edition of the podcast 'FTR with Dax', Dax Harwood praised Randy Orton: “His timing in the ring is impeccable, he is always in the right place at the right time. He has charisma, he's athletic, he's precise in every move and doesn't waste any movement.
When you find yourself working with him, you just have to follow him and everything will be fine. From my point of view, Randy Orton is the best wrestler in the world. He may not have the most articulate move set ever, but he knows how to electrify an audience.
The ability to entertain a crowd is what makes a truly great wrestler." According to Dave Meltzer, a well-known correspondent of the 'Wrestling Observer', WWE was forced to unify the tag team titles last year precisely because of Randy Orton's serious injury.
The company had originally planned for RK-Bro to retain the Raw tag team titles. “WWE had no plans to unify the tag team titles, but Randy Orton's serious injury has turned the tables. Without Randy's back injury, RK-Bro would have remained the champions of Raw.
Given the absence of the Viper, the company had to bet everything on the Usos." Randy Orton once opened up about the time he missed rehearsals ahead of his WrestleMania 21 match against The Undertaker. "Let's just say I got into a little trouble, didn't get much sleep, just in case my kids are watching.
Now, keep in mind, this is my second WrestleMania. I'm 24, I'm being given the world. My f***ing dad is there, 'Taker's there. I got down there just as they were finishing up, they were walking out. I'm working with The Undertaker for a year, and it all started off with me missing rehearsal for the biggest match of the year."
