Randy Orton Misses Bryan Danielson, Says ‘I Wish He Was Still Here’ WWE

In making the media rounds, Randy Orton has given several candid interviews and the Out of Character with Ryan Satin podcast was no exception.

Randy Orton discussed a variety of topics including his home life, an emotional reunion backstage recently with Triple H and the AEW star he wishes was still with him in WWE.

Orton was asked about his legacy, to which he responded:

“I want my legacy to be that I made sure that the guys like Edge, and Seth Rollins, and AJ Styles and, God, I miss Daniel Bryan. I wish he was still here. But these guys that are coming up like Priest, Theory, the Street Prophets, Riddle, these guys that have all the potential in the world. In some cases, like the first guys, I listed, Roman as well, these guys that can work, and they know the art of this business, I want my legacy to be that I was able to, with these gentlemen, take this business to the next generation and make sure that that new wave of talent knows how to do it the right way, staying true to the art of what it is, and making sure that number one priority is taking care of your opponent’s health that you’re in the ring with. That needs to be number one in every case. I think if that’s my legacy, I’m happy with that.”

Orton has been vocal about his desire to not only put over younger talent but to also ensure that the emphasis on working safely isn’t lost on the next generation.

Randy previously had some harsh words regarding working with some NXT talent due to his belief they have a higher emphasis on looking cool than being safe.
