Randy Orton’s achievements and successes in WWE

Ever since his early days in WWE, Randy Orton was earmarked as a future star of the company. It is fair to say that he has lived up to all expectations.

He quickly progressed through WWE’s then-developmental territory, OVW. He graduated in 2002 – the same year that John Cena and Batista also progressed to the main roster.

At 24 years old, Orton became the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in WWE history in 2004. He was already part of the villainous stable Evolution, but Orton transitioned into a face when his stablemates turned on him.

In 2005, ‘The Viper’ then competed in a legendary WrestleMania match against The Undertaker but ultimately failed to end The Streak.

In subsequent years, he would enjoy further world title reigns, engage in memorable feuds with the likes of John Cena and Shawn Michaels, and form the successful ‘Rated-RKO’ team with Edge.

Orton became the storyline ‘face of WWE’ when he was part of the Authority storyline in 2013. With the help of Triple H, ‘The Viper’ cashed in his Money in the Bank contract at SummerSlam and pinned Daniel Bryan to win the World Heavyweight Championship.

After a stint with The Wyatt Family, Orton returned to his old ‘Legend Killer’ gimmick in 2020, attacking various WWE legends. He then engaged in a feud with Bray Wyatt, defeating his rival at WrestleMania 37, before joining forces with Riddle later in the year.
