As per Bill Apter’s interview uploaded by Sportskeeda WrestleBinge, Randy Orton talked about the difference between WWE under Triple H’s leadership and the promotion under Vince McMahon’s control. He said, “Off the top of my head — and, listen, I love Vince, he gave me so many opportunities. But I think it was kind of time for him to move on. It’s unfortunate that it happened in the way that it happened. But it’s nice having people in charge of me that understand how important it is for you to be home for birthdays, and home for Thanksgiving, and home for Christmas.”

Randy Orton continued, “Vince McMahon, he had Raw on Monday night live. He doesn’t care if you had kids. I came to him when I was 35 and my back really started going and I pleaded with him like, ‘Man, I got to like not do as many shows, maybe do half the tour and be able to recover. And he just looked at me and was like, ‘Oh, I need you on those shows, Randy. Mother Nature gets us all.'"
