When Randy Orton returned to WWE a few months ago, he returned with a vengeance, and he’s been on fire ever since.
Orton managed to pick up a big win over Jeff Hardy at Hell in a Cell on Sunday, and on SmackDown Live he teased that he’ll be targeting a new opponent soon.
WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry recently talked about Randy Orton’s recent run on Busted Open Radio, and he noted that he thinks Orton is one of the most underrated wrestlers of all time.
“I told you when I first signed onto this show that Randy Orton is one of my top favorite wrestlers of all-time, and that he’s one of the most underrated guys of all time. Because his accolades speak for himself, his talent speaks for himself. Randy’s getting meaner and more vicious. He started off very smooth and fluid, and usually guys like him don’t rise to the level of excellence that he’s rose to. But he’s been able to do that.”
Henry continued to praise Orton, and added that he thinks he deserves to be in the title picture because he’s that good.
“I’m looking forward to seeing him get his just due. Randy needs to be in that conversation for Universal Champion-type roles. He’s that good.”
