Randy Orton's grandfather, Bob Orton, and his father. Bob Orton Jr., were well-known pro-wrestlers. Bob Orton Jr. was involved in the main event of the first-ever WrestleMania back in 1985.
In 2005, Bob Orton Jr. was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. A short while later, he began appearing on WWE TV alongside Randy Orton, who was feuding with The Undertaker on WWE SmackDown. The father-son duo had a month-long feud with The Deadman, which ended with The Undertaker victorious inside Hell In A Cell.
