In a recent interview with Adam’s Apple, WWE superstar Randy Orton discussed several topics, including how many more years he plans to wrestle before he retires from in-ring action.

“If you would have asked me two years ago, I would have thought I was close to the end, because I had spinal fusion about a year and a half ago, that changed the game.

I had peen in pain through my entire 30’s and was hurting, I was begging for time off when I was 35, I think Vince’s quote to me was, mother nature gets us all. That’s hard to hear when you’re 35 and your back hurts and you’re busting your a** for this company.

There have been some changes, and now I think instead of pushing the guys and running their d***s into the ground until they fall apart, there is a great atmosphere of how can we make this guy last.

The beauty of it is, I’m not even there yet, I feel so great after my surgery, I’m a full-time guy, I don’t want to do the old Undertaker or Shawn Michaels schedule, which they needed to do understandably, wrestling at WrestleMania, take the Summer off, maybe you see them at SummerSlam.

I want to be on the road every week, I want to make all the TV’s, I want to be on all the PLE’s. At 44, I would love to be able to go until my 50’s, maybe I wrestle until I’m 50 and call it. That’s 30 years, 30 years with the same company on top.”
