Randy Orton explains why his feud with Bray Wyatt failed

Randy Orton made his professional wrestling debut in March 2000, wrestling in Mid-Missouri Wrestling Association-Southern Illinois Conference Wrestling (MMWA-SICW) for a few months before being sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) at the time.

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) development territory. After signing with WWE in April 2002, he became a member of stable Evolution, which quickly led him to win the Intercontinental Championship; in this period he also acquired the nickname of Legend Killer (in Italian Ammazza Leggende) as he began to disrespect and physically attack some famous wrestlers belonging to the Hall of Fame.

Orton told Sportskeeda that he believes he works best against a certain type of wrestlers and Bray Wyatt does not fit that mould.

"Personally, I think I tend to perform the best with a certain type of character, type of WWE Superstar and Bray Wyatt doesn’t really fit that mold,” Randy Orton said.

“But I think with his ability to tell a story, his ability to portray the characters he’s come up with so well, I think that it’s something that we would have to do in the future. Hopefully, The Fiend is around for a long time and he’s the new Undertaker, and I can’t see how we’d miss each other if that is the case”.

Orton revealed he plans to wrestle for a long time and is confident he will cross paths with the Fiend at some point. “I’m going to wrestle until I’m 48, 47, whatever, into my late 40s, a long time,” Orton continued.

“I’ll cross paths with The Fiend at some point and hopefully, we’ll put on a good show and tell a great story. The story’s there because, I think it was 2017, maybe 2016 that I was actually in the Wyatt Family.

I got to wrestle Bray at WrestleMania. Beat him for the title. If The Fiend has a bone to pick with anybody, it will be the Legend Killer. It will be very interesting”. Randy Orton has held the WWE Championship nine times and WWE's World Heavyweight Championship four times.

He was the final holder of the World Heavyweight Championship, which he unified with the WWE Championship to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion by defeating John Cena at TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs in 2013. Orton is recognized by WWE as having the fourth-most world championship victories in history, behind Cena, Ric Flair (both 16) and Triple H (14).

He is the winner of the 2013 Money in the Bank ladder match, as well as the 2009 and 2017 Royal Rumble matches, and has headlined multiple WWE pay-per-view events, including WrestleMania XXV and WrestleMania XXX.
