From the very beginning of his career, Randy Orton got the privilege to work with two of the biggest names in professional wrestling history; one of them is Triple H and the other one is of course the 16 times World Champion the Nature Boy Ric Flair.
Orton joined the legendary stable Evolution in January 2003, and it changed his career forever. He has been very impressive during his evolution days. In a very short amount of time after joining Evolution, he became the youngest WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Randy Orton Revealed What He Learned From Ric Flair
At SummerSlam 2004, Orton defeated the then WWE World Heavyweight Champion Chris Benoit who win his first world title. Just on the next night on Monday night RAW, Evolution turned on Orton and in the process he turned babyface.
And after that, Randy Orton kept climbing the ladder of success higher and higher. He is a 14 times WWE world champion and maybe more Championship reign for him are coming in the future.
But how did cotton became so good at Pro wrestling? Recently Orton featured as a guest on the Kurt Angle Show podcast where he revealed what he learned from the Nature Boy Ric Flair. He said;
“I saw Ric Flair and we actually rode from the hotel together. I asked him if he was doing something on the show, and he goes, ‘Oh no. Hell, Randy, I love coming around and seeing the guys and seeing you talk and put your stuff together.
“I love talking to some guys.’ He said the comradery and that he loves this business and being around it. If Charlotte wasn’t there, he would’ve been there anyway. I like that attitude. I like that he looks at this industry and can say that it’s made me happy and gave me so much and made so many other people happy because of what he did in the ring.
“I want to feel like that too. I feel like he’s happy and content. Made many mistakes, but also, made many positive situations and positive moments for fans millions of times over. I’d love to be in his shoes one day and be happy with my body of work and just kind of sit back and be grandpa and watch the grandkids play. That’s all I need to be.”
