Randy Orton Addresses Possibly Coaching In WWE
Could a coaching gig be in Randy Orton's future?
Though Randy Orton may be regarded by many as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of the modern era, The Viper isn't sure he has what it takes to be a coach at the WWE Performance Center.
Answering a question for GiveMeSport as part of a press conference in London last week, Orton outlined his reason for not being keen on the role.
"I don't really think I'd be a good coach because I would just start to ramble...it's almost like I don't know how to articulate myself to a group of green guys that are coming into the business that need to learn the basics".
While a traditional coaching gig doesn't appeal to Randy, he did note that he would be happy sitting down with a smaller group of performers and doing things like studying tape.
"If there was three, four or five guys, a small group, and if we could go and talk and sit in the ring. if it could be like close quarters, just a small group of people where we're not doing drills and stuff, but just talking and maybe watching tape, I think I'd be good in that aspect".
Orton - who recently celebrated 20 years on WWE's main roster - famously graduated from the same Ohio Valley Wrestling class that also produced Brock Lesnar, Batista, John Cena and Shelton Benjamin.
