WWE Superstar Randy Orton recently spoke about his future with the company and when he intends to hang up his boots.

The Apex Predator made his debut back in April 2002. Over the span of 20 years, he has won 14 World Championships, two Royal Rumble matches, and a Money in the Bank contract. Most recently, he is one-half of RK-Bro alongside Riddle. The duo currently holds the WWE RAW Tag Team Championship

The Viper was in a special interview with the crew of WWE's The Bump in honor of Orton Week. During the show, he spoke about when he plans to retire from the business. The third-generation superstar made it clear that he is a "WWE guy." He also stated that he plans on remaining active as a wrestler well into his 50s.

"I think I'm going to be a WWE guy for the rest of my life," said Orton. "I've got a contract coming up in a couple of years, but I plan on not untying my boots for the last time until I'm well into my 50s. How could you stop?" Orton said. "When my neck, or my back, or my knee or my shoulder are gonna say, you've got to stop. No more for you young man. I don't know when that is. So it's funny, but I would love for it to play out to where say on my 50th birthday." (From 40:32 - 41:41)
