Professional wrestling legend and future WWE Hall of Famer Randy Orton, a former 14-time WWE World Champion, recently said that professional wrestling is a team player mentality.

Randy Orton is one of the biggest names in professional wrestling history today. He has been active in the world of pro wrestling for over two decades. After a brief stint in the development territory, Orton made his main roster debut in 2002. He is the son of legendary professional wrestler “Cowboy” Bob Orton. After joining the main list, he became a member of the famous WWE stable development.

In 2004, at the age of 24, he became the youngest WWE World Champion in history, breaking the record set by Brock Lesnar, who only became a WWE Champion at the age of 25. This was just the beginning of his massive success in WWE. Orton vs. John Cena still stands as one of the greatest rivalries, not just in WWE but in the history of professional wrestling.

Orton has achieved nearly every possible championship in WWE. He began his career as a mid-card wrestler primarily fighting for the intercontinental championship on Monday Night RAW.

But after SummerSlam 2004, when he defeated Chris Benoit for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, he was dubbed a main event star. He’s currently the WWE RAW Tag Team Champion along with Riddle and he’s developing quite strongly.

Randy Orton, a former 14-time WWE World Champion, recently spoke to BT Sport where he said professional wrestling is a team player mentality. He said;

“If you can say that boys don’t understand that. Or it’s not so much a team player mentality as more me, me, me, me, me. There is a time and a place for that. But if it’s all the time, then that doesn’t look good.

“If I can’t trust you to respect me enough to think about my body and my health instead of chopping my head off live on TV and making it look like you killed me. Then we have a problem.”
