Randy Orton has been one of WWE’s top stars for decades now, but over the last few years there’s been a lot of talk about how much longer The Viper will continue to wrestle.

The former WWE Champion spent a significant amount of time sitting on the sidelines due to a back injury which required surgery. While talking about his future the 44 year old Randy Orton recently told Adam’s Apple that he could potentially wrestle until he’s 50.

“I feel so great after my surgery. I’m a full-time guy. I don’t want to do the old Undertaker or Shawn Michaels schedule, which they needed to do, understandably, but wrestling at WrestleMania, take the summer off, maybe you see them at SummerSlam. I want to be on the road every week. I want to make all the TVs, I want to be on all the PLEs. At 44, I would love to be able to go until my 50’s. Maybe I wrestle until I’m 50 and call it.

That’s 30 years. 30 years with the same company, on top. It feels like now is the perfect environment for me to thrive. If I do need to take a week off because I am getting up there, I get it. There have been twice since I’ve been back where I was like, ‘Hey Hunter, can I take a week to recover so I can be 100% for the following week?’ ‘Sure, as long as you communicate that to me, no problem.’ Having that in my back pocket is real peace of mind knowing that if I need a week, they’ll give it to me.”
