Is Randy Orton the best wrestler in the world?

WWE Hall Of Famer Says Randy Orton Is Right In His Criticism Of NXT Talent


WWE Hall of Famer ‘Road Dogg’ Jesse James has said he understands Randy Orton’s criticism of NXT talent.

Orton has been heavily critical of NXT Superstars in the past, and told Pat McAfee in March that he’s worked with NXT call ups who don’t know what they’re doing in the ring.

On a recent episode of his new podcast, Oh… You Didn’t Know, Road Dogg spoke about the Viper’s comments:

“I don’t disagree with him at all. For him to say they don’t know what they’re doing, I guess you can say that and he’s right to an extent, but they know what they’re doing. They just don’t do it perfectly yet and I don’t expect them to.

“You have to protect yourself and you have to protect your opponent because at the end of the day, it is a work, it is a job, and I have to go home to my wife and children and be able to pick up my grandchildren at my age.”

Orton will team with Riddle (an NXT call up) and Drew McIntyre to face The Bloodline this Sunday at WrestleMania: Backlash.
