Randy Orton is at a point in his career where young superstars backstage look up to him as a role model. While that is a positive thing and speaks highly about Orton's work in WWE, it also serves as a reminder that The Apex Predator is nearing the end of his career.

Given the amount of work Orton has done in WWE and also considering the injuries he has suffered, at some point, he will have to hang his boots. However, the real question is when The Viper retires, what would he be doing for the rest of his life? It seems that following his retirement from competition, Orton will still be involved with wrestling.

During an interview with Bill Apter on Sportskeeda Wrestling's Wrestle Binge, Randy Orton mentioned that if his injuries had to force him towards retirement, then he would most likely be a WWE coach, producer, etc. Orton said he sees himself always being part of the WWE family.

Hence, given Orton said he would have done this if he had to retire, it would make perfect sense to believe this is what he will pursue when he calls it a day in his wrestling career. Also, seeing Orton in this role would be interesting as many wrestlers speak about how they have benefited from his experience.

RAW Superstar once opened up on seeking help from Randy Orton

While Randy Orton is a third-generation wrestler and has professional wrestling running in his veins, his personal experience as a WWE Superstar is enough to aid those seeking guidance. A few months ago, a RAW Superstar opened up on seeking advice from The Apex Predator.

The RAW Superstar in question is Chad Gable. During an interview with TVInsider, Gable admitted that whenever he is stuck with something, Orton is the man he seeks feedback from. Gable mentioned that Orton's answers resonate and are truthful. He said:

"I would say, Randy Orton. I don’t try to bother people too much with questions, especially when you know the answer to questions you may ask. But there are a few things I’ve struggled with during my time here, and Randy has been a guy I ask to get actual thoughts and feedback from. He has been through it all and knows pretty much anything. I’ve always reached out to him. He gives me the answers that resonate and are truthful."


Like Gable, several people have spoken and continue speaking about Randy Orton being the guiding light backstage. Hence, if he were to be a WWE coach or producer after retirement, there is no doubt he would succeed in that role.
