Randy Orton is one of WWE’s most vicious superstars, but the Viper has a comedic side. Orton’s social media, especially his Instagram and Twitter, is full of wisecracks and jokes at his fellow superstars’ expense. Randy’s latest attempt at proving he’s the joker of the locker room targets future Hall of Fame inductees Kane and The Great Khali.

This week, two of WWE’s biggest superstars, both literally and figuratively, were chosen to enter the WWE Hall of Fame. Kane and The Great Khali join Eric Bischoff and Molly Holly in the 2021 class of the WWE Hall of Fame.

To congratulate two of his former opponents, Randy Orton took to Instagram and posted two hilarious pictures. In both pictures, we see Orton hitting a drop-kick on both Kane and Khali. This is typical Orton behaviour, and there’s probably no better way the Viper could’ve congratulated the WWE legends.

Kane and Orton crossed paths frequently during the former’s active run on the roster. They even clashed at WrestleMania 28, where Kane delivered a chokeslam to Orton from the top rope to give him a big win. To avenge his loss, Orton RKO’d Kane through a steel chair at Extreme Rules to level their series.

Khali and Orton did not cross paths frequently in WWE, but Orton once hit a towering RKO on the big man during their match on SmackDown.

2021 Class of the WWE Hall of Fame

Because of the global pandemic, the 2020 class of the WWE Hall of Fame will merge with the 2021 class. The 2020 class includes some of the biggest names in wrestling, and the 2021 class is exceptional too, especially with Kane and Khali.

Japanese wrestling legend Jushin Thunder Liger wrestled his last match in January 2020, but he has to wait till April 2020 to enter the WWE Hall of Fame. Along with Liger, the British Bulldog and JBL are two WWE legends entering the Hall of Fame this year too.

Accompanying Molly Holly will be the former Divas’ Champions Nikki and Brie Bella, the Bella Twins. Although they’ve expressed their desire to return to the ring, they will enter the Hall of Fame this year.

Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman and Scott Hall will become two-time Hall of Famers when the nWo gets inducted this year. Accompanying them is the President of the company where they made a name for themselves, Eric Bischoff.
