“Guys like Jack Lanza, Pat Patterson, Bruce Pritchard, Tom Pritchard – those guys all helped me get a tryout. And I’d never been in the ring, so they went on a lot of faith and signed me and thought that they could help mold me into a WWE superstar. And now I’m glad they did, because that was a big turning point in my life.”
Orton occupied WrestleMania’s main match twice. Orton played a leading role in the events WrestleMania XXV and WrestleMania XXX. Each time this was a match for the coveted WWE Championship.
