After feeling outnumbered by The New Day, Randy Orton recently forged a friendship with The Revival to even the odds, and it's been the best thing to happen to all three guys in some time. They've shown excellent chemistry throughout their rivalry with New Day, which should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with Orton's decorated past in relation to factions.
Orton was basically brought up in WWE as part of a stable in Evolution and went on to be a part of many more over the course of his career. Interestingly enough, The Apex Predator is the kind of character you would expect to fly solo, if only because he can rarely be trusted and has been betrayed before, but that hasn't stopped Superstars from aligning with him over the years.
It's for good reason, too, as Orton has never ceased to find success with stables. He has won tag team title gold with a few different partners, helped hand The Shield their very first loss in 2013, and has always felt cooler with a crew of cronies doing his bidding for him.
It's hard to say how long this trio of Orton, Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder will last, but if it's anything like these other Orton alliances, it likely don't end well for the former Raw Tag Team champions. In other words, friend or foe, everyone eats an RKO eventually.
