When Randy Orton slithers into the AT&T Stadium in Dallas for WrestleMania 38 as a Raw Tag Team Champion he will achieve a very special first in WWE.
Randy Orton and Riddle re-captured their Raw Tag Team Championship when they defeated Alpha Academy and Kevin Owens & Seth Rollins on the 7th of March edition of Raw.
Since then RK-Bro have been challenged to put their title on the line on The Grandest Stage Of Them All by The Street Profits. At Riddle’s urging, the champions accepted the challenge but Alpha Academy’s interference in the singles match between Riddle and Montez Ford prove they have not given up on reclaiming the gold themselves.
Either way, Randy Orton will enter WrestleMania 38 as a tag team champion, and when he does so he will set an incredible WWE record. Fact5 Wrestling has posted on social media that Orton will become the first WWE Superstar to enter WrestleMania as a tag team champion, a US Champion, an Intercontinental Champion, a World Heavyweight Champion, and WWE Champion.
Randy Orton was Intercontinental Champion the first time he set foot on The Grandest Stage Of Them All at WrestleMania 20 in 2004. Rather than defend his title at that event, Orton teamed with Evolution stablemates Ric Flair and Batista to defeat The Rock ‘n’ Sock Connection.
Orton entered WrestleMania 24 as WWE Champion and was able to retain his gold as he saw off the dual challenge of both John Cena and Triple H. The Viper was less fortunate when he carried both belts that comprised the WWE World Heavyweight Championship into the main event of WrestleMania 30. A Triple Threat match also featuring Batista ended in the crowning glory of Daniel Bryan.
At WrestleMania 34, Randy Orton entered a Fatal Four-Way match as US Champion against challengers Jinder Mahal, Bobby Roode, and Rusev. In the end, it was ‘The Modern Day Maharaja’ Mahal that escaped that night with the title.
