WWE wrestler and former World Champion Randy Orton has exploded onto internet video platform Vine throughout the past weeks taking on anyone and everyone with his signature finishing move the ‘RKO’ from footballers to children on climbing frames and even Superman!
The Vine videos were created by internet trolls and even Orton himself found them amusing, as well as it massively impacting the social media footprint of WWE as the fans, also referred to as the WWE Universe, were left in hysterics as they watch the former champion RKO Gandalf from Lord Of The Rings and several other ‘epic fail’ videos with an excited Michael Cole commentating.
It doesn’t just stop there either, as well as Randy Orton’s famous finishing move being a viral sensation, even more WWE wrestlers are also making it to the Vine videos with recent releases of retired WWE legend ‘Stone Cold’ Steven Austin and the ‘Stone Cold Stunner’ also circulating around the internet.
Orton has appeared recently as a heel and the wrestling community are getting slightly tired of him partaking in similar matches with the same people. For those who are unfamiliar with wrestling terms, a heel is also known as a ‘bad guy,’ for example, Ric Flair and CM Punk. However, with his recent social media popularity there’s a massive opportunity for Orton to move up even further in the ranks with a lot of online wrestling fanzines predicting that he could turn baby face, which can also be described as becoming a ‘good guy’ like John Cena.
If you haven’t seen these hilarious vines, you’re definitely missing out which is why EWN have posted a compilation of these below, for your own enjoyment.
