Randy Orton believes one WWE star has an incredibly bright future.
After spending 18 months out of the ring, Randy Orton returned to WWE at Survivor Series, before taking on Dominik Mysterio on the following episode of Raw.
In Orton’s absence, Mysterio’s reputation has gone from strength to strength and his association with Judgment Day and Rhea Ripley has kept him in and around the main event scene.
WWE’s faith in Mysterio was hammered home when he was tasked with sharing the ring with CM Punk for his first match with the company in a decade.
Appearing on WWE’s The Bump, Orton gave a glowing assessment of Mysterio’s future.
“Oh my god, that kid’s got a hell of a future. We haven’t even seen anything from him yet, and he’s already done so much. The reaction he gets from the people, I’ve been able to work with him on some live events, and the kid’s good. He’s good. He’s got the future by the balls,”
