Randy Orton is set to break the record for working the most matches at WWE pay-per-view events in history at this Sunday’s Survivor Series event.
Raw Tag Team Champions RK-Bro will meet SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos in a non-title match at the show. Orton is tied for the most PPV matches at 176 with Kane right now.
Orton took to Twitter to comment on the accomplishment and brought up how he’s close to breaking another WWE record as if he wrestles on Monday’s Raw then he will have had more Raw matches than anyone in history. Orton wrote the following:
“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) hat 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.”
It should be noted that according to The Internet Wrestling Database, Orton is ranked #2 for this record as he has 431 matches while Kane has 436 matches so it appears he needs a few more matches to break this record.
