Which current WWE Superstar does Randy Orton want to induct him into the Hall of Fame?
In 2000, Randy Orton signed his first contract with WWE. Over the next 23 years, The Viper became one of the company's legends. He is now a 14-time world champion, four-time Tag Team Champion, former Intercontinental Champion, and United States Champion.
As the 43-year-old is almost a guaranteed future Hall of Famer, he has decided on who he would like to induct him into the elite club.
During an episode of the Wives of Wrestling podcast, Orton's wife, Kim, disclosed that she and her husband once discussed who should induct him into the Hall of Fame. They both agreed that it should be John Cena. Orton also addressed Cena during an interview with TMZ, saying he should attend his Hall of Fame ceremony if he had some time off from Hollywood.
Kim disclosed that Cena texted Orton shortly after to assure him he would never miss that moment:
"John texted him [Randy] a couple of days later and goes, 'If I was on Mars, I'd make sure that I would be there for that for my friend,'" she said.
The Viper's wife also addressed the relationship between her husband and the Leader of the Cenation, revealing that Cena is one of Orton's close friends:
"Randy doesn't have many close people, but John [Cena] is one of them. And anytime any one of them do anything, they are always like reaching out to each other," she added. [H/T: EssentiallySports]
