Randy Orton has been a vital part of the WWE and he has excelled as a heel and a babyface. The third-generation superstar has been a popular figure among the fans, just like his father and grandfather were back in the day. The Viper has come off on what was believed to be a career-threatening back issue, which would have taken him off-action forever and he had to step down from something he has loved to do since stepping into the squared circle. In case he had to go through retirement, Orton had a backup option in mind if he had to part ways with professional wrestling.
