When fans reminisce and debate about the greatest wrestling matches of all time, names such as Shawn Michaels, Kenny Omega and Will Ospreay are constantly mentioned.
One name which rarely falls into that discussion, despite his consistency across a near two-decade career, is Randal Keith Orton. 'The Viper', or whatever you want to call him, is renowned for his various nicknames and personality changes, three-lettered finisher and for his memorable feuds with the likes of John Cena, Triple H and, most recently, Edge. Yet, he is not one to steal the show for his in-ring ability, which has often been criticised as being too "slow" and "methodical".
That being said, that doesn't mean he hasn't ever brought the house down as the 'The Apex Predator' has produced more than a handful gems throughout the years. Sometimes when it was expected, and, in some cases, "from outta nowhere".
Note: Royal Rumbles and traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series matches are excluded with limited number of tag and multi-man contests listed in order to highlight Orton's singles match capabilities.
