During his long career in WWE, Randy Orton has won the WWE Championship ten times, the heavyweight title four times and once each the Intercontinental Championship, United States Championship, World Tag Team Championship, Raw Tag Team Championship.
and the SmackDown Tag Team Championship, turning out to be the 10th wrestler in history to have completed the Grand Slam. The Knoxville champion also won the Royal Rumble in 2009 and 2017, as well as having won the 2013 edition of Money in the Bank (successfully collected against Daniel Bryan).
Finally, he holds the record for the highest number of participations in PPVs in the history of the federation (with 177 appearances). During a recent interview with VL Media, Jeff Hardy spoke at length about his relationship with the Legend Killer.
He said: "Randy Orton is a legend who has spanned several generations. He had a big impact on me and we always had great chemistry in the ring. For some strange reason, he has a deep obsession with my ears. I'm lucky they are still intact.
Randy and I created some memorable sequences, especially during our Hell in a Cell Match. It was a real honor to be able to work with him." Host of the Kurt Angle Show a few weeks ago, the 14-time world champion talked about his future: "I've always told my wife Kim that - if she feels like I've become a parody of myself - she has to point it out immediately.
By the time I am no longer able to sustain the efforts required by this business, I will hang up my boots. I'm not worried about life after wrestling at all, having a beautiful wife and five wonderful children. I also have a beautiful home, so can't really complain.
I took part in the Survivor Series for the 15th time, a crazy record that says a lot about my longevity."
Roman Reigns out of WWE?
For the past two years Roman Reigns has been literally the protagonist and main wrestler not only of Friday Night Smackdown.
An incredible series of victories, a title reign that has lasted for over 450 days and a record still in the crosshairs. Just over a month and a half away and Roman Reigns could beat Brock Lesnar for the longest titled reign ever, yet another reign in a career that sees the Head of the Table as the true star of the company.
In recent weeks, however, there has been discussions about the future of Roman Reigns and among the various hypotheses there has also been talk of a scenario bordering on the incredible. During the last episode of Smackdown Roman Reigns talked about his ride, remembering his numbers but at the same time stating that, sooner or later, his adventure in WWE and in general in the world of wrestling could end and maybe only at that point.
According to Roman, people might recognize it. Here are his specific words: "I am the greatest of all time. When my days here are over, this may come sooner or later, the whole world will recognize me." What everyone is referring to is the passage of the WWE star in Hollywood with Reigns who would be ready by now to follow in the footsteps of a star like The Rock, John Cena and Batista.
In a recent interview, during an appearance on the Michael Kay Show, Roman Reigns talked about a possible move from Wrestling to Hollywood. Here are his words: "Well, we have to see. I think there may be some interesting moves in that direction soon.
There are speculations and things to see about contracts, you have to go deep into this sector and I'm ready to try my hand. This thing is something where I definitely want to gain more experience, WWE has done me good and has given me so much, it has put so many opportunities in front of me that I had to pick up. I like to think that along the way I have acquired many skills and these will also help me in the future."
