Randy Orton is one of the greatest WWE Superstars of all time. He made his pro wrestling debut back in the year 2000. Since then, he has worked very hard to become one of the most famous wrestlers in WWE’s history. He is 41 years old right now, but Orton is still working at the top level.
Unlike some of his past locker roommates, Randy Orton has neither walked away from WWE nor switched to a part-time role. He is currently holding the WWE RAW Tag Team Championships with Riddle on the red brand of WWE. The duo are set to defend their championships against The Street Profits at WWE Day 1 this Saturday.
After Day 1, the next pay-per-view event is Royal Rumble, an event that always excites the pro wrestling world. In this article today, we will look at the three reasons why the Apex Predator Randy Orton could win Royal Rumble 2022.
1. WWE’s way of thanking Randy Orton
Recently, Randy Orton broke the record for the most PPV matches by any wrestler in WWE history. He also set a new record for the most matches by any Superstar on Monday night RAW. Given that Orton has been so loyal, WWE can express their gratitude to him by giving him a main event push once again. Winning the Rumble will be a solid way to push Orton.
2. Randy Orton vs Roman Reigns is a match that fans want to see
Over the last few months, Randy Orton has transformed from a despised heel to a lovable babyface. His partnership with Riddle has helped him win the hearts of the WWE Universe as a face. Roman Reigns needs a big opponent for WrestleMania 38.
In 2020, Roman vs. Orton was set to happen at Survivor Series, but the match never happened as Drew McIntyre defeated Orton for the WWE title and replaced him in that match. By winning the Rumble, Orton could set his eyes on Roman again.
3. If not The Legend Killer, then who will win Royal Rumble 2022?
There is no clear favorite to win the Rumble, especially in the men’s division, as of now. If one looks at the roster, not many Superstars are on the level of Randy Orton. So a lack of options could compel WWE to book Orton to win the Rumble.
