Wrestler Randy Orton recently challenged former colleague and now star to a match at next year’s Wrestlemania and the latter’s response wasn’t one Orton expected.

Randy Orton has proved himself in the WWE as the genuine bad guy, being the main antagonist to the likes of John Cena, Hulk Hogan, and Triple H. The fact that he is a third-generation superstar (his grandfather and father were wrestlers) lends credibility to his claim of wrestling being in his blood.

Now, Orton appears to have set his sights on ‘The Rock’, who appeared on this past week’s episode of Smackdown, perhaps hoping to ignite a feud that would end up in the ultimate showdown in the grandest stage of them all.

‘The Viper’ (as Orton is called) issued a challenge to Johnson, telling him it was time to answer the question of who was the greatest third-generation superstar of all-time.

Like Orton, Johnson’s father (Rocky Johnson) and grandfather (Peter Maivia) were renowned wrestlers. In fact, Johnson comes from a famous wrestling family that has produced Umaga, Rikishi, , and The Usos. Reigns and The Usos are cousins with Johnson.

The Rock’s reply to Orton’s challenge was both unexpected (to Orton at least) and hilarious.

The two facing off would be quite the spectacle and something the WWE Universe would relish. Unfortunately, it seems that won’t happen anytime soon.
