Randy Orton says that he will be in the WWE for life and will not be making the switch to Holywood like John Cena and Batista (now Dave Bautista). And in case you were wondering, he did call their names.
Orton inherited the wrestling name passed on from his grandfather Bob Orton to his father Bob Orton Jr and his uncle Barry Orton. To him, wrestling is more of a tradition than a sport. Something sacred.
During an interview on The Kurt Angle Show, the former “Legend Killer” revealed his displeasure at how two former colleagues made their switch.
“The way Cena did it, the way Batista did it is they used WWE as a jumping board to go into Hollywood,” The Sports Rush quoted him.
Despite the criticism, he admitted that Hollywood has its attractions. He also mentioned that he loves films and sends in monthly auditions as well.
Randy Orton has played roles in several films such as the comedy-drama film “That’s What I Am” (2011), the action films “12 Rounds 2: Reloaded” (2013) and “The Condemned 2” (2015), and had supporting roles in the comedy-drama film Changeland (2019) and the romantic comedy film Long Shot (2019).
Yet, for him, full-time acting is not something he sees in his future. “I’m not trying to move to Hollywood or move to New York and be a full-time actor,” he says. This is unless Marvel calls on him to star as a superhero, he conceded that it would be awesome if that happened.
Your move Marvel, a superhero whose power is the perfect RKO perhaps?
