Career Turning Point
The separation of Randy Orton from the ‘Evolution’ aided him in forming a career-defining baby-face image.
Randy Orton is a professional wrestler and actor from the United States who is best known for his WWE career. His parents prevented him from seeking a professional wrestling career because of the significant amount of time he will be away from his family and home. On the other hand, Orton continued to wrestle as a novice while attending Hazelwood Central High School.
Orton’s tenure in the WWE continued, and he claimed the WWE Championship a total of eight times, including four times as World Heavyweight Champion. Additionally, he set a tag team with Adam Copeland (a.k.a. Edge) in the late 2000s, dubbed Team Rated RKO (a joke on Edge’s alias, the Rated R Superstar, and Randy’s finisher maneuver, the RKO).
They retained the World Tag Team Championship for the first and last time before succumbing to John Cena and Shawn Michaels. Orton established his own stable, Legacy, in the early 2010s, which included Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase Jr. Following that, Orton reverted to his old ways and earned the nicknames “Apex Predator” and “The Viper,” raising his violence and killing instinct in the ring.
