Ever since he came onto the scene in 2002, Randy Orton’s greatest move has always been the dreaded RKO. The RKO literally comes out of nowhere – Orton can strike like the viper that he is at any time and any place with this devastating finisher. The RKO is so popular that there are videos made spoofing people’s falls as if they got the finisher.
Over the years Orton has fine-tuned the finisher and has come up with clever ways to catch his opponent off guard. Some of these were unanimous crowd pleasers, leaving them exploding with applause and awe.
There were many victims in Orton’s fourteen year WWE career, but some of his best RKOs happened in the last six years. This list hopes to detail them.
#5 TLC 2011 to Wade Barrett
Orton had some great feuds in 2011, and the year ended in grand fashion with this match against Wade Barrett. The brief feud was intense, and I feel it should’ve gone on a lot longer than it did.
The feud culminated after this match, which was a Tables Match. So, it was no surprise that Orton used that to his advantage, catching Barrett in a brutal RKO through the table to win the match.
