#4. WWE RAW Tag Team Champion Randy Orton

Like Charlotte Flair, Randy Orton was born into a famous wrestling family. His father is WWE Hall of Famer Cowboy Bob Orton, and his grandfather is wrestling legend Bob Orton Sr.

The Viper had a comfortable childhood as his family was financially well-off. He attended Hazelwood Central School before joining the Marine Corps. Nonetheless, he received a bad conduct discharge in 1999.

As the son of a WWE legend, it was easier for The Apex Predator to break into the wrestling business than many other wrestlers. He joined WWE in 2001 after training for nearly a year with his father.

"My father and my grandfather, they were in this business for the last 50-60 years. So I'm very fortunate to have grown up in this business and end up where I am now," Randy said in an interview several years ago.

Randy Orton is considered a WWE legend. He is one of the most accomplished wrestlers in WWE history. The Viper is currently active on Monday Night RAW. Earlier this year, he joined forces with Riddle to form RK-Bro. They are now the RAW Tag Team Champions.
