Randall Keith ‘Randy’ Orton married his girlfriend Kim Marie Kessler in 2015. His previous marriage with Samantha Speno fell apart due to love loss. They filed for divorce in 2012, with Speno citing an ‘irretreviably broken’ marriage as the sole cause of their separation

Orton is an essential component for team Blue, in the traditional brand vs. brand match at Survivor Series. Come 20th November; The Apex Predator will leave no stone unturned to score a victory for his team against RAW’s finest five.

He is expected to continue his ongoing storyline when he returns for 11/29 tapings of SmackDown Live. Randy, who recently joined Bray Wyatt’s faction, can be expected to feud with Luke Harper to become the deputy commander of the stable.


WWE has been subtly teasing a tension between Harper and Orton, and their feud can ultimately culminate at TLC on 4th December.
