During his recent WOOOOO! Nation podcast, Ric Flair said that Randy Orton may be looking for a lighter or reduced WWE schedule in the near future. He said it would be similar to the schedule that Shawn Michaels had before he retired. HBK would work a certain number of shows before taking time off.
According to sources, Orton has been given several weekends off this year already. He is likely financially secure to the point that he doesn’t need to be on the road as much anymore.
