So I understand that you have some questions about my return. Let me make this as simple as possible and let me explain to you why I’m back. For that (pointing at the title belt). So whether it’s you or John Cena or someone else, I don’t care. I’m back to win the Royal Rumble match on Sunday, I’m back to be the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and I am back to headline WrestleMania, so deal with it

Orton talks to Comcast about his future in WWE and the diva’s division.

I wouldn’t say I’m WWE for life, I’d say my near future will consist of me primarily being in the ring,” Orton said. “Wrestling is my first love. The movie was fun, but the schedule was grueling because I had to fly off on my off days to film. Eight weeks went by and I had three days off. If I do the movie thing, I’ll be sure that I’m only doing the movie so I can concentrate on it. (Laughs) I think I’d be more sane that way.
