Orton’s list of legends includes Stone Cold Steve Austin, Jake the Snake, Roddy Piper, Don Muraco, and Orton’s father, Bob Orton Jr.

Even Stone Cold believes that a match between Randy Orton and his father would have been legendary. In fact, it would have been entertaining to watch Bob Orton use his legendary arm cast on his own son.

Coming to this cast, Bob Orton had injured his arm and had to wear a cast to let the arm heal. However, he didn’t take it off after the usual time span and kept it on for a few years. He would use the cast to flatten his opponents during every chance he got.

Bob Orton and Roddy Piper were close allies until the latter became a fan favorite. Following this, Bob Orton Jr. swore his allegiance to Adrian Adonis.

Apart from the above, Randy Orton revealed that he had been quite lucky with respect to wrestling legends. He has wrestled Ric Flair, The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, and Hulk Hogan. Therefore, even if he can’t battle the ones he listed above, he’s glad he wrestled a fair share of legends.

There is a reason the WWE Universe knows him as ‘The Legend Killer’.

What is Randy Orton currently doing in WWE?

Currently, Randy Orton is in a storyline with Alexa Bliss. The duo has been tormenting each other since the beginning of Orton’s feud with The Fiend.

After Orton lit The Fiend on fire in The Inferno Match, Alexa Bliss brought her wrath down on him. She played mind games with him and kept trying to get inside his head. Moreover, she shot Orton’s face with a fireball in order to avenge The Fiend.

Finally, Alexa Bliss gave Orton the opportunity to get rid of her once and for all. As of now, the duo is scheduled to fight at WWE Fastlane 2021.

This might not be an actual match and will be used as an opportunity to bring back The Fiend. If he returns, it’s likely instead of Bliss, The Fiend will fight Orton and this rivalry will pick up where it left off.
