WWE's Randy Orton Wants To Wrestle Until He's 50-Years-Old

Another nine years of Orton

Randy Orton's in-ring career has already eclipsed the 20-year mark but The Viper isn't looking to retire any time soon.

Speaking on The Ringer Wrestling Show, Orton revealed he wants to continue performing until he is 50-years-old in nine years' time. 

"I'm 41. By the time I'm 50, I think I'm done. But I'm not like, I'll do [acting] auditions every once in a while, but I almost only do them because my wife says 'Oh do them, because what if you don't. Then you'll wonder what if you did.' So I do auditions here and there, crossing my fingers that I don't get a callback because I love what I do. I don't want to stop. I don't want to have to stop, because of my body," Orton began.

"So I've taken it upon myself to make sure I'm doing everything I can on the daily that physically I'm able to continue. But if it was up to me, and I knew physically it wouldn't be a problem, I'd say I'd wrestle until I'm 50-years-old. And I would go out and have that last match when I'm 50 and be able to say I did it on my own terms. That's nine years from now. But I don't see an end to my career any time soon. I'd like to continue to go."

Orton also revealed on the podcast that he is contractually obligated to work 80 WWE shows per year, while also noting he wasn't interested in working a part-time schedule.
