Randy Orton, a former 14-time world champion, is arguably the greatest superstar currently in WWE. Staying relevant for close to two decades is testament to his longevity and unparalleled ability as a professional wrestler.

The Viper is currently on a tag team roll on RAW as part of RK-Bro with Riddle. Having formed the team earlier this year, Orton and Riddle ascended to championship glory in no time by beating AJ Styles and Omos at SummerSlam.

The RAW Tag Team Champions retained their titles against the same opponents at the recently concluded Crown Jewel pay-per-view. On the latest edition of RAW, they kept their reign intact by overcoming the Dirty Dawgs: a team comprising Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler.

With the accolades Randy Orton has achieved, there are several young superstars on the current WWE roster who would love to square off against the legend.

In this article, we look at five current WWE Superstars who Randy Orton has never faced in singles competition.

#5. Damian Priest vs. Randy Orton

Damian Priest has been one of the biggest success stories on RAW this year.

The reigning United States Champion decimated T-Bar on the latest edition of RAW, showing a vicious side that fans have never seen before. If Priest brings such intensity in a contest with Randy Orton, the match will be an intriguing bout. The two superstars competed in a traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series match in 2019 but never in singles competition.

Will the Reckoning overpower Orton, or can Priest be laid to rest with the RKO? The contest will be too close to call, but the WWE Universe will be served a treat.

#4. Dominik Mysterio vs. Randy Orton

Despite being in some memorable bouts against Rey Mysterio over the years, Randy Orton is yet to lock horns with his son Dominik Mysterio.

The younger Mysterio, having lost to Austin Theory on the latest edition of RAW, is desperate to carve his name as a singles competitor. What could be better than to face Orton?

The Viper will certainly help put over the younger Mysterio in this epic clash, pinning high-flying moves of Dominik against the strength of Orton.

#3. Otis vs. Randy Orton

The contest between Otis and Randy Orton will be an intriguing first, pinning the brute strength of the former against the athleticism of the latter.

Otis, a member of Alpha Academy with Chad Gable, failed to win the number one contenders match to challenge RK-Bro for the RAW Tag Team Titles on last week's RAW.

That said, with the tag team rivalries still hot on the Red Brand, a singles match between Otis and Orton can surely be on the cards.

#2. Apollo Crews vs. Randy Orton

Apollo Crews, the former United States, and Intercontinental Champion, having recently moved to RAW with his partner Commander Azeez, will surely look to make his name on the Red Brand. For this to materialize, Apollo would want to feud with the best on RAW, and who could be better than Randy Orton.

The contest will be full of power-packed action, making it a bout the WWE Universe would certainly not want to miss.

#1. Austin Theory vs. Randy Orton

Austin Theory, since his return to RAW from NXT, has been very impressive.

The former NXT superstar recently registered two massive wins over WWE legend Jeff Hardy. On the latest episode of RAW, he overcame a spirited Dominik Mysterio to further establish himself as a force to be reckoned with.

To soar to bigger heights, Austin would love to feud with an established veteran like Randy Orton. Their maiden contest will see the exuberance of Austin Theory pinned against the experience of the Viper, making it worthy of the fans' attention.
