One of the greatest wrestlers currently at the top of the McMahon-owned federation, who currently holds the position of tag team champion of Monday Night Raw together with Riddle, is Randy Orton, now legendary wrestler of the WWE rings, who in just under 20 years inside the rings has already indelibly written his name among the legends of the number one federation in the world, with surprising victories and titled reigns.
Among the many feuds had by the legend Killer, stand out among all those with Triple H, The Undertaker or John Cena, with Randy who was one of the most admired heels in the entire pro-wrestling world, born and raised in a fully rooted family.
in the culture of the discipline. Son of a third generation of wrestlers, with his father and grandfather also wrestling legends, Randy Orton has entered WWE history again, appearing once again in the rings of Summerslam 2021 and equaling a record that belonged to last year to a sacred monster of discipline: The Undertaker.
Randy Orton signed a 5-year contract with WWE
Randy Orton returned to RAW on the 9th August edition of the show. As for where Orton was, that was kept under wraps. Last year, whenever any WWE superstar would quietly disappear, it was assumed that they had COVID-19 and that it was kept a secret from the public.
Only a few names within the company were open about it. Even the reason behind Keith Lee's sudden disappearance from February to July 2021 wasn't disclosed to anyone, although if it was just COVID-19, it's unlikely his hiatus would have lasted for nearly half a year.
With the appearance of this year, The Viper managed to reach the number 16 presence of his career in the Summerslam ring, equaling The Undertaker in terms of appearances and matches. As noted by the ProFightDb website, Orton thus rises to the top step of the matches played at the Summer Big Four, with a score of eight wins, seven losses and a match finished in no contest.
The only one to follow with 15 matches, at the foot of the podium and therefore in third place, is the multiple champion who was defeated by the main event in Summerslm, John Cena, while Edge instead follows at 14 and the COO Triple H at 13 matches.
Just one new appearance next year is enough for Randy Orton to take off Undertaker, remaining alone on the podium. A new great honor received by the McMahon Legend Killer, who after a stellar career does not stop writing his name on the golden books of the company, getting closer and closer to a call in the Hall of Fame that now seems more than obvious.
