Having enjoyed a career spanning over 20 years, Randy Orton is widely regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. The 44-year-old has won the joint-third most world championships reigns (14) in WWE history, two titles short of tying John Cena and Ric Flair for the most.

Meanwhile, a five-month-old video of Orton is making the rounds on social media, where he talks about his dream match. During an appearance on WWE's "The Bump," the WWE Superstar said that he wants to wrestle John Cena at WrestleMania for the WWE Championship before his retirement.

The video started surfacing online again as Cena, another greatest of all-time wrestlers, recently announced his retirement from the sport. Orton can be heard saying that he has never wrestled John at WrestleMania in a singles match and that this is what the fans are also waiting for. 

“A dream match for me would be to somehow find myself in a situation where I’m fighting Cena at WrestleMania for the title. I don’t know how you get there, I’m not saying it’s gonna happen. But I have never wrestled John at WrestleMania in a singles match. We had some wars back in the day, so being able to revisit that after all this, I think it’s not only something that I would want, I think the fans would eat it up too.”

John Cena to retire from WWE in 2025

Legendary wrestler John Cena announced his retirement from WWE during a surprise appearance at the Money in the Bank Pay Per View in Canada. A 16-time champion, the 47-year-old revealed that 2025 would be his last year in professional wrestling.

"Tonight, I am officially announcing my retirement from the WWE," Cena said.

“I’ve been in the WWE for over two decades and in that time, I’ve seen incredible waves of prosperity like we got right now. WWE is the hottest ticket in town no doubt, but I have also seen true hardship, that’s when no one knows your name, nobody wants to be your friend and only the most dedicated and hardcore fans stand by your side".

“So, in all those years, one of the most important and impressive things I learned is whether the WWE is hot or cold, Canadians always show up," he added.
