Randy Orton could rack up another huge milestone in his WWE career following Survivor Series if he competes on Monday Night Raw.
At Survivor Series Randy Orton will make his 177th WWE pay-view-appearance when he teams with Riddle to take on SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos.
According to The Internet Wrestling Database, the match means that Orton will have competed in more WWF/WWE pay-per-view events than anyone else in history. At present, Orton is tied with Kane on 176 appearances.
The top five is completed by The Undertaker (174) Triple H (173) and John Cena on 163. The highest-ranking female Superstar on the list is Charlotte Flair who has appeared at 58 events.
Interestingly Randy Orton has taken to social media to reveal that he’s on the brink of another record as well. Should Orton compete on Monday Night Raw The Viper says that will give him the most matches on WWE’s flagship show as well:
“I’ve never been one to keep records or stats throughout my career. Early on, it was laughable to consider in my profession you had ‘wins’ and ‘losses’. You certainly wouldn’t talk about it, with the boys much less fans. But I’m fortunate to have some fans (and friends) that have done just that, kept my stats.”
“Not just wins and losses, but damn near everything you could think of! It came to my attention that tomorrow at Survivor Series I’ll set a new record for most PPV matches by anyone in WWE history. The following night on RAW coincidentally, if I have a match, I’ll have had more matches on RAW then anyone in history.”
“I saw this online, checked it, and it is true… kind of hard to believe, as it feels like I only started down in OVW yesterday. I just wanna take a minute in light of these ‘stats’, and let everyone out there that’s ever supported me in any way know that I am thankful.”
“I also know with all of my heart that I couldn’t have done it without you. Now on to my 15th Survivor Series…man time flies don’t it? #WWE #SurvivorSeries #RAW”
Randy Orton is also third on the all-time list for World Championship reigns alongside Triple H with 14. Interestingly, The Viper is behind only The Undertaker, Kane, and Shawn Michaels in terms of Survivor Series appearances. The illustrious trio have all appeared at 17 events, while Orton has wrestled at 14.
