WWE superstar Randy Orton is the current holder of the World Heavyweight Championship belt on WWE’s “Friday Night SmackDown” program. The third generation wrestling star is following in the footsteps of father “Cowboy” Bob Orton and grandfather Bob Orton, Sr.
The 31-year-old resident of St. Louis quickly elevated to the highest levels of the WWE through an impressive physique, strong technical wrestling ability and an outstanding command of the microphone. Pro Wrestling Illustrated has named him the most popular and the most hated wrestler, during different points in his career.
Clearly, fans have taken well to whatever persona Orton is selling at any given time.
Saturday, Orton appeared at the SummerSlam Axxess, held at LA Live, in downtown Los Angeles. Take a look at this ifollosports.com original video showing Orton leaving the event, shortly after his scheduled appearance.
The very next night, Orton defeated Christian, in a No Holds Barred match, reclaiming the World Heavyweight Title.
