Orton Takes a Shot at Vince

In an interview with Bill Apter about his father’s induction into the St. Louis Wrestling Hall Of Fame, Orton discussed the new era in WWE. He expressed his approval of the changes, stating: “Off the top of my head, listen I love Vince. He gave me so many opportunities. I think it was kind of time for him to move on. It’s unfortunate that it happened in the way that it happened. But it’s nice having people in charge of me that understand how important it is for you to be home for birthdays and home for Thanksgiving and home for Christmas.”

Orton further criticized McMahon’s management style, highlighting a lack of compassion: “He wanted his performers working. I came to him when I was 35 and my back really started going and I pleaded with him like man, I gotta like not do as many shows [and] maybe do half the tour and be able to recover and he just looked at me and was like, ‘I need you on those shows Randy. Mother nature gets us all.'”
