WWE Raw superstar Randy Orton is a third-generation professional wrestler. Before Randy, his father and grandfather had left their mark on the pro wrestling world.
Randy’s father, popularly known as “Cowboy” Bob Orton, is a WWE Hall of Famer.
In 2005, Randy Orton himself inducted his father into the WWE Hall of Fame. But ‘The Viper’ feels he didn’t do his father justice during “Cowboy” Bob Orton’s Hall of Fame induction.
During an episode of WW Evil, Randy Orton talked about his actions during his father’s WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
Randy said, “The night before, I decided to stay up all night with a couple of guys that I knew I shouldn’t have been hanging around with. And we got into some stuff that kept us all night. When I inducted my father into the Hall of Fame, I was out of it.”
“I had not come up with a speech. I spoke from the heart, but I didn’t do my father justice. That look of disappointment on my father’s face. If I have any regrets as far as my career goes, that’s probably it,” he added.
Well, if Randy feels he had disappointed his dad on that night, he surely has made up for it in the years following his father’s Hall of Fame induction.
The former WWE Champion is a more mature person right now with plenty of experience.
Not only this, but Randy Orton is also regarded as one of the most loved and successful individuals in WWE right now.
