In a thrilling development for WWE fans, Randy Orton, also known as "The Viper," has marked his emphatic return to the WWE, creating waves in the wrestling community. Following his dynamic re-entry during the Men’s WarGames match at WWE Survivor Series 2023, held at AllState Arena in Rosemont, Illinois, Orton has reignited his presence in the wrestling world.
Capitalizing on Orton's newfound momentum, WWE Shop has swiftly launched a new line of merchandise celebrating his iconic comeback. The highlight of this collection is the "Daddy's back!" t-shirt, a nod to Orton's recent catchphrase that has quickly caught fire among the WWE audience.

Orton's commanding delivery of "Daddy's back!" during a promo, where he confronted Rhea Ripley of The Judgment Day – famously known as “Mami” – and subsequently Paul Heyman, has become an instant hit.
His message to Heyman was clear: inform Roman Reigns that "Daddy's back!" The phrase has resonated with fans, who were heard echoing it en masse at the WWE SmackDown event at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
