Randy Orton Urged To Take Backstage Role In WWE

Randy Orton

Randy Orton has spent twenty years as an active WWE Superstar but as it approaches one year since he last competed, one WWE Hall of Famer thinks it’s time he took another role in the company.

Orton last competed on the 20th of May 2022 edition of SmackDown where he and Matt Riddle lost the Raw Tag Team Championship to The Usos with injury issues putting him on the shelf for the past year.

Speaking on The Wrestling Time Machine, Teddy Long explained he thinks Randy Orton should prepare for life after in-ring competition and transition to a role in NXT:

“If Randy is pretty much set, and the other thing you said about him taking somebody under his wing and helping him out. That’s what I would do if I was this guy.

“Randy is still a young man; he’s still got a long future. That’s what I would do. If I were him, I would go to maybe NXT, take a job there, and help some of the young kids and show them the right way. Randy Orton is another guy who knows how this works, and that’s why you gotta have people like him, Shawn Michaels, or Terry Taylor.

“If Randy was smart, I would take that. That’d be easy and plus, he’s giving back to the business. Then you can watch what you’ve done if you have helped some of the young kids out. You can sit back and watch and be proud of your work.”
