Randy Orton Face Turn[edit]

Legacy attacked Orton last RAW, so he is now face —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.113.117.247 (talk) 17:26, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

That's yet to be seen. --  ThinkBlue  (Hit BLUE) 17:37, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

He cheered quite a lot on last night's raw, so I would say he is a face. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.86.17.34 (talk) 14:34, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, he might have been cheered last night, but that still doesn't prove anything. --  ThinkBlue  (Hit BLUE) 15:27, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
It's not enough to say the WWE turned him face. We have to wait. –Turian (talk) 17:35, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Big Red[edit]

Randy Orton is starring in a new movie called "Big Red" produced by WWE films http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=63474 - KingRaven (>$.$)> (talk) 17:00, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Face Turn(2010-2013)[edit]

After his feud with legacy at the Royal rumble and the Elimination Chamber he'll face them at Wrestlemania 26 becoming a face in the process —Preceding unsigned comment added by DXJORDAN1 (talkcontribs) 18:41, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Orton turning face is not noticeable. --  ThinkBlue  (Hit BLUE) 18:42, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

he's been getting cheered and teamed up with John Cena on Raw, Randy in now a face. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.86.17.34 (talk) 15:29, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Still not noticeable. --  ThinkBlue  (Hit BLUE) 16:33, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
And it is way too early to make judgments about the situation. You can't see the forest from the trees. –Turian (talk) 17:48, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Actually, it is pretty damn noticeable if Randy, who was one of the most booed people in WWE, turns face. MaraquanWocky1 (talk) 20:36, 5 June 2010 (UTC)

Update the article[edit]

Can someone put in the fact that Randy's the 2009 PWI wrestler of the year in the article under accomplishments and championships? Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PWI_Wrestler_of_the_Year (RKOLegacy (talk) 18:14, 4 April 2010 (UTC))

Edit request from Liamo.sheehan, 16 April 2010[edit]

{{editsemiprotected}}

Say that Orton became a fan favorite the night after Wrestlemania 26 after John Cena announced him as his tag team partner against Batista and Jack Swagger and that Orton won the match by pinning Swagger Liamo.sheehan (talk) 15:49, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Just because Cena announced him as his tag team partner the night after doesn't mean that Orton is a fan favorite. --  ThinkBlue  (Hit BLUE) 15:54, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

No, he's definitely a face. The announcers put him over as such and if you've been watching Raw, he gets the reaction of a face. Ksefan1122 (talk) 20:19, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

There are popular heels. Think of Stone Cold, he was a heel for almost his entire career, but he gets cheered all the time. –Turian (talk) 21:56, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Accomplishments in the lead[edit]

Why his accomplishments haven't be stated in the lead like other wrestler's pages? We should write how many titles he won and how many times he became world champion like other superstar's pages.--Rimara (talk) 03:46, 24 April 2010 (UTC)


I told the author of thee page all his title reins..^ CierraO'Shields (talk) 22:20, 14 June 2013 (UTC)Cierra

TWEENER?[edit]

Wouldn't Randy Orton be a "tweener" because of the fact that he RKO's whoever he wants... from raw guest hosts to Edge and other superstars.CROSSFIRE96 00:38, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Shoulder dislocation[edit]

Randy didn't dislocate his shoulder, his shoulder was separated. They are two different things. Will someone please change this? MaraquanWocky1 (talk) 23:08, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Done. --  ThinkBlue  (Hit BLUE) 16:20, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Chris Jericho's Return[edit]

There's no mention of Chris Jericho's feud with Randy Orton upon his return to WWE. His history goes from his feud with Shawn Michaels, which culminated at Survivor Series, to the match against Jeff Hardy at Royal Rumble, skipping that year's Armageddon where he defeated Chris Jericho to retain the WWE Championship. Considering the amount of attention paid to Jericho's return, I think this rivalry should be mentioned. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.71.54.116 (talk) 20:49, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Nothing noticeable occurred during that feud. This, however, fits better at Jericho's article page. --  ThinkBlue  (Hit BLUE) 20:53, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Return to singles competition[edit]

Orton competed in the WWE paper-view "Money in the Bank" but came up short. The following night Orton became the #1 contender for Sheamus's WWE Championship by winning a Triple Threat match against Edge and Chris Jericho —Preceding unsigned comment added by G064 (talkcontribs) 13:29, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

We don't add every loss, and we don't add week-by-week events. --  ThinkBlue  (Hit BLUE) 15:19, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Powerslam[edit]

Someone should add snap powerslam, or a scoop slam to his signatures. Very commonly used by Orton.

Adding Olympic Slam as new signature move[edit]

Orton has been doing the Olympic slam for almost two weeks now, so I'm adding the Olympic slam as his signature move, here are the sources: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7W1WlCvdzvM and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cN18_z__SGg Kouji nakajima omori (talk) 14:56, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

Feud with CM Punk (2011)[edit]

At the Royal Rumble, CM Punk cost Orton an opportunity to regain the WWE Title. Then on the next night on Raw Punk said " The reason why I did what I did is because you punted me in the head at Unforgiven and cost me my World Title. So, Orton punted Husky Harris in the head for what Punk had did at the Royal Rumble. So at the Elimination Chamber Punk had eliminated Orton. Then on the next week on Raw Orton punted Michael McGullicuty.Irt is official CM Punk vs Randy Orton at Wrestlemania 27. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tman819126 (talkcontribs) 02:29, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

For me, I think it is unnecessary to put it in as a new section, since Randy Orton's previous feuds were not stated as sections. UserTalk 14:25, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Return to SmackDown(2011-present)[edit]

on April 4th 2011 Randy Orton was drafted back to the SmackDown brand.

Actually, it was April 25, 2011, and it's already noted in the article, complete with source. NiciVampireHeart 16:48, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

THANK YOU Arc...--UnquestionableTruth-- 13:01, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
Seriously? Are you suggesting that we should leave out said information? Yes, it was redundant of them to bring it up here since it was already in the article at the time of their edit, but it's fairly obvious why they were posting it. Comments like "Yea, so?" and "And this helps improve the article how, exactly?" aren't all that helpful themselves. You could have a left a note saying "That won't be included because it's a non-notable, week-by-week result" or "we need a reliable soure for all spoiler information to be included in articles". Your comments give nothing for the editors to seize upon to help improve their editing or gain a better understanding of how wikipedia works. If your comments aren't helpful, perhaps you should re-think posting them in future. NiciVampireHeart 13:31, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

Early Life[edit]

The article says :

Orton is of English, Scots-Irish, German, and Dutch Descent

There, he expressed his Christian faith by telling another marine that he "better believe in Jesus."

The full quote was “You better believe in Jesus, boy.”  I don’t think he was “expressing his Christian faith” so much as trying to intimidate somebody. The implication being that baring divine intervention, the guy was going to get hurt. I am requesting that this passage simply be deleted outright.

Done Not a very reliable source either. Thanks, Celestra (talk) 04:41, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

A correction needs to be made here. Randy Orton was scheduled to star in Marine 3 Homefront but has now been pulled from the movie by WWE. The reason for this is cause of bad history with the Marines. As this article correctly states Orton was discharged from the Marines after going AWOL on two occasions. After WWE announced that he would be starring in this movie some of the soldiers from his Marine days started complaining. Their voices were heard as of today, April 3rd, 2012, WWE has announced that Randy Orton has now been pulled from the movie.

Typo?[edit]

Edit request on 14 June 2013[edit]

I would like to ask that a few things be changed on the Randy Orton Page. I would first ask that Randy Orton's height and weight be changed. He is 6 foot and 5 inches tall and is 235 pounds. (I got that from WWE.com, Randy Ortons Profile.) Also The Legacy Debut on January 5,2009 an Disbanded on April 27 of 2010. The Legacy theme song was 'It's a New Day' by Adelitas Way. Lastly, Randy Orton has been WWE Champion (Four times) World Heavyweight Champion (9 Times) Intercontinental Champion(One time, 210 days, Armageddon, Mick Foley was the Guest Referee, December 14, 2003, Def. Rob Van Dam), WWE Tag Team Champion (Rated RKO) 2009 Royal Rumple, Last eliminating Triple H.

Punt kick[edit]

The reason he doesn't use it anymore is because it was banned due to "concussion awareness".

Four WHC Reigns[edit]

On 02/07/14 episode of Raw, the WWE put up a graphic calling Orton a 3 time World Heavyweight Champion. To me, that's a sign that winning a unification match does not count as a reign for the dissolving title. I'm willing to do the leg work and change the ten to fifteen pages where it counts, but I don't feel like doing all that work just to get reverted.

WWE World Heavyweight Champion (2013-2014) On July 14 at Money in the Bank, Orton defeated Christian, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Rob Van Dam, and Sheamus to win the WWE Championship Money in the Bank ladder match, thus earning him an opportunity to challenge for the WWE Championship at a time of his choosing within the next year.[247] On August 18 at SummerSlam, Orton turned heel after he cashed in his Money in the Bank contract on Daniel Bryan, who had just won the WWE Championship and had been subsequently attacked by special guest referee Triple H, who also counted the pinfall to give Orton his seventh WWE title.[248] The following night on Raw, Orton was endorsed as the "face of the company" by Vince McMahon and the newly formed Authority (Triple H and Stephanie McMahon).[249] On September 15 at Night of Champions, Orton lost WWE Championship back to Bryan,[250] however, Triple H stripped Bryan of the title the next night on Raw, due to a fast count by referee Scott Armstrong, but refused to give the championship back to Orton.[251] Orton and Bryan faced off for the vacant title on October 6 at WWE Battleground, but the match ended in a no contest after Big Show interfered and knocked out both men.[252] Orton once again challenged Bryan for the vacant championship at Hell in a Cell, where he was successful in regaining the WWE Championship after the special guest referee Shawn Michaels superkicked Bryan for attacking Triple H.[253] On November 24 at Survivor Series, after successfully defending the title against Big Show, Orton was confronted by World Heavyweight Champion and long-time rival John Cena.[254] The following night on Raw, Cena suggested that there should only be "one champion" in WWE, so Triple H stated there would be a unification match at the TLC pay-per-view.[255] On December 15, Orton defeated Cena at TLC to unify both titles, and becoming the first WWE World Heavyweight Champion as well as officially being recognized as the final World Heavyweight Champion.[256] Orton made his first successful title defense as WWE World Heavyweight Champion on January 26, 2014, at the Royal Rumble, defeating Cena in a rematch after interference by by The Wyatt Family.[257] On February 23 at Elimination Chamber, Orton defeated Cesaro, Christian, Daniel Bryan, John Cena, and Sheamus to retain his WWE World Heavyweight Championship and secure his position in the title bout at WrestleMania XXX against Royal Rumble winner Batista.[258] On April 6 at Wrestlemania XXX, the main event was changed to a triple threat match after Bryan defeated Triple H, and won the match after submitting Batista to end Orton's reign at 161 days.

Evolution Reunion (2014-Present) The following night on Raw, Orton and Batista were each denied a rematch for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and instead were forced by The Authority to team together to face WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos for the title, despite their issues with one another. The title match ended in a double count-out after the two united and delivered a beat-down to the. On the April 14 edition of Raw, Batista, Triple H and Randy Orton came down to the ring to attack The Shield after their 11-on-3 handicap match, using the name and the theme of Evolution. 112.200.50.94 (talk) 05:17, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

grade 12 move[edit]

Tonight on the 27 July Raw I think it was Michael Cole who called a move he did against Kevin Owens a 'grade 12' or something sounding like it. He held him in his arms and them threw him overhead in a slam.

Not sure name of move but should we add this name to the wrestling section? Ranze (talk) 02:38, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Announcer tally[edit]

Tonight in a title match against Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship you hear Michael Cole call him a 12-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and JBL said he could walk out a 13-time one if he wins.

  • World Heavyweight Championship (4 times, final champion)
  • WWE (World Heavyweight) Championship (8 times)

This indicates that holding the WHW championship qualifies as having held it. Ranze (talk) 03:02, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

12 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion[edit]

@LM2000: in Special:Diff/691955070 has removed reliably sourced information supporting Randy Orton being considered a 12-time WWEWHW champ:

Burdick, Michael (2 April 2015). "Who deserves to challenge Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Title?". Randy Orton is a 12-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion. 
"Extreme Rules". WWE.com. Archived from the original on 26 April 2015. WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins battles 12-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton in a Steel Cage Match in which the RKO will be banned. 
"Extreme Rules". WWE.com. Archived from the original on 28 April 2015. WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins defeated 12-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton in a Steel Cage Match in which the RKO was banned. 
Burdick, Michael (23 August 2015). "Sheamus def. Randy Orton". WWE.com. Retrieved 23 November 2015. Yet no matter what he threw at Orton , the 12-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion would not give in. </ref>

I seek consensus that this is a reliable reason to call him a 12-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion. WWE has consistently done so.

Objections to doing this are based on original research, a misinterpretation of only the WWE Championship lineage of the WWEWHW title counting. Ranze (talk) 07:29, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

@Crash Underride: since you've indicated reading this talk, wondering about your opinion on how we could more neutrally present this data. I think the sources are worth using, even if they should not be used as I did earlier.
I have been doing some further research into this in my time off, and have discovered some conflicting sources within the WWE which makes me question my earlier conclusions. While Michael Burdick (in April and August) and whoever wrote the Extreme Rules descriptions (in April) do refer to Orton as a 12-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion, we also have http://www.wwe.com/classics/the-longest-reigning-wwe-world-heavyweight-champions/page-5 from April which says "Number of reigns: Eight" + "Eight reigns in the books" written by Ryan Murphy and Zach Linder.
I don't know enough about WWE.com staff or reporters to know who outranks whom. So off-hand I can't say whose testimony is more reliable here. So rather than state outright "Orton is an X-time champion" would there be a neutral way in which we can convey to readers how WWE has alternatively described him as 12-time or 8-time, either including or excluding his World Heavyweight Championship reigns?
Considering many so-called multi-time WWE World Heavyweight Championships were won back before it was called this (either as WWF or WWE) perhaps we could just state x-time on Wikipedia by whatever name it was known when they won it and then report the different ways in which they are consolidated by WWE.com staffers? Ranze (talk) 01:03, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
If we're talking this section, I think it should be left alone. If we're talking about the lead where it talks about him being a #-time world champion. I would say "He is a former 12-time World Heavyweight Champion, having held the World Heavyweight Championship 4 times and the WWE (World Heavyweight) Championship 8 times" and of course have them each linked since when he held them they were to separate titles. But that's just me, I get confused with the WWE and their title lineage, they've had so many mergers and splits it's ridiculous. Crash Underride 01:35, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
I'm not sure if we should uppercase it though. Although the WWE Championship was both a world championship and a heavyweight championship, thus a "world heavyweight championship", I don't think it was used as a proper title, so it could create confusion with the "World Heavyweight Championship" that existed until a couple years ago. The issue is though that while Linder/Murphy say at http://www.wwe.com/classics/the-longest-reigning-wwe-world-heavyweight-champions/page-8 "Cena has already cemented his spot as a defining World Champion — should he win the title one more time, he’ll be tied for Ric Flair with 16 total reigns." acknowledging WWE/WHW/WWE+WHW as world championships, Michael Burdick went a step further in acknowledging Orton's WHW reigns as WWEWHW reigns, and that interpretation was used in the Extreme Rules promos, just as it is on Cena's WWE.com profile.
I'm not really arguing that we should develope a theory to ALWAYS consider former WHW reigns as former WWEWHW reigns, but there is evidence that world title reigns are counted by official WWE staffers for Cena/Orton/Rock/Sheamus specifically. Perhaps there is unique criteria a wrestler must fulfil before WHW reigns are countable in total WWEWHW reigns and only these 4 fulfill them? Due to the Linder/Murphy article though, it does introduce doubt into 15/12/12/4 being a universal belief by the WWE, which is why it seems better to teach the controversy and show how WWE has described Cena/Orton both ways (I don't think Rock/Sheamus had enough total days to be mentioned in the Linder/Murphy article).

not the same thing[edit]

@Prefall: regarding Special:Diff/693241044 they don't really mean the same thing, since there are world titles outside of WWE. Plus there is a narrative being pushed on Wikipedian that holding a "world title" doesn't get recognized as a WWE World Heavyweight Championship which is why I provided the exact sourcing saying that they do recognize him as this, so could you restore the sources you removed please? Ranze (talk) 08:55, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

@Ranze: That same sentence also mentions that he is an 8-time WWE Champion and a 4-time World Heavyweight Champion, which is exactly what the "12-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion" line implies. It just seems redundant. Prefall 09:09, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
@Prefall: it is a reference to the big belt of the day, direct quotes of how many times he has held the big belt help dismiss speculation that he's held it a fewer amount of times for those who only count WWE Championship reigns. Ranze (talk) 09:19, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
