Congratulations, Randy Orton! On this week’s Raw, Randy Orton broke Kane’s record when he wrestled his 437th match on Raw. He has now wrestling more matches on Monday Night RAW than anyone else. During this match, RK-Bro successfully retained their Raw Tag Team Championships against the Dirty Dawgs.
This comes right after he broke the record for most pay-per-view matches in history (also breaking Kane’s record). At Survivor Series, RK-Bro faced and defeated Smackdown Tag Team Champions, The Usos. Making it Randy’s 176th match on pay-per-view.
In reaction to the milestone and in anticipation of having the most matches on RAW, Orton wrote, “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 (sic) 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?”
This achievement is a long time coming, after 19 years on the main level of WWE. He has risen the ranks and is now number 1. He beat out Kane (436), Chris Jericho (420), Triple H (377), and John Cena (373). Kane’s last match on RAW was in September 2019. So, it took Orton only two years to close the gap between himself and Kane. Glenn Jacobs –only under the name Kane– had a 5 year head start, starting in 1997.
Orton’s wife, Kimberly Orton, also took to twitter to voice her reaction. She wrote, “My husband @RandyOrton making history every day!!! It’s insane. You are the fucking GOAT my love. Own that shit 🙌🏼💝❤️”.
