Randy Orton is the guest on this week’s episode of “After The Bell” with Corey Graves. Orton created some headlines this week for his Twitter feud with NXT star Tommaso Ciampa. During the interview, he talked about wrestlers needing to slow down.
Here are a couple of highlights from the interview:
Randy Orton talking about being Edge’s opponent: “Knowing Edge considered me to be the safest guy he could work with and also have a story that we could capitalize on made me feel quite loved to be honest with you. I was very honored that Edge wanted to work with me first to feel things out for the first time after 10 years.”
The idea of wrestling matches should be slowed down: “They ask if I can watch their match. I tell them you have to slow down. I’m now the old timer who has nothing to say except to slow down. I’ve been watching a lot of NXT which I didn’t do before. They have so many guys that are talented. But, what I noticed the other day, and I don’t want to bury anybody, but I saw a match between two guys that did so much cool stuff. As I was watching it, I’m thinking in my head, if they would have just let that breath, the people at home would get with it. My wife said they did so much cool stuff that I can’t remember one thing specifically that they did. I’m like, that’s it. It’s building to those moments and doing the cool stuff when the time is right.”
Orton also talks about getting one over on The Undertaker and he goes more in-depth on his current storyline with Edge.
