Randy Orton has broken another huge WWE record with his match on this past Monday’s November 29 episode of Raw.
In teaming with Riddle to retain the Raw Tag Team Championship over Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode, Orton cemented himself as having the most Raw matches in WWE history.
This came just over a week after he’d achieved the same accolade for WWE pay-per-views at Survivor Series on November 21.
Much like with the pay-per-views, it was Kane who Randy Orton surpassed, having now worked 437 matches on Raw to Kane’s 436.
The top five most Raw matches list is as follows:
- Randy Orton – 437
- Kane – 436
- Chris Jericho – 420
- Triple H – 377
- John Cena – 373
Prior to breaking the pay-per-view record at Survivor Series on November, Orton tweeted:
I’ve never been one to keep records or stats throughout my career. Early on, it was laughable to consider in my profession you had ‘wins’ and ‘losses’. You certainly wouldn’t talk about it, with the boys much less fans. But I’m fortunate to have some fans (and friends)
…that have done just that, kept my stats. Not just wins and losses, but damn near everything you could think of! It came to my attention that tomorrow at Survivor Series I’ll set a new record for most PPV matches by anyone in WWE history.
The following night on RAW coincidentally, if I have a match, I’ll have had more matches on RAW then anyone in history. I saw this online, checked it, and it is true… kind of hard to believe, as it feels like I only started down in OVW yesterday. I just wanna take a minute…
…in light of these ‘stats’, and let everyone out there that’s ever supported me in any way know that I am thankful. I also know with all of my heart that I couldn’t have done it without you. Now on to my 15th Survivor Series…man time flies don’t it? #WWE #SurvivorSeries #RAW
Orton didn’t have a match on the post-Survivor Series episode of Raw as he alluded to, but he obviously still broke the record this week.
His pay-per-view accolade was recognised by Guinness World Records, along with Natalya who broke the record for the woman with the most pay-per-view matches ever at Survivor Series too.
