Speaking about the same in an interview, Orton gave a controversial opinion. The 14-time world champion claimed that he loves Vince for the number of opportunities he gave to prove himself as a top wrestler.

The Apex Predator felt that it was important for Vince to be home for birthdays, thanksgiving, and Christmas. "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," said Orton. 

"It’s unfortunate that it happened in the way that it happened. But it’s nice having people in charge of me who understand how important it is for you to be home for birthdays, and home for Thanksgiving, and home for Christmas," Randy added. He then referred to some of the toxic natures of Vince. The star wrestler narrated an incident where he highlighted the bossy nature of Vince.

The star wrestler claimed it to be a different era as he felt everyone on the board understand that the wrestlers are humans at the end of the day. Randy said that the ability to extract talent from wrestlers under Triple H has been great.
