Top star works first match on WWE Raw since 2015



WWE’s Stats & Info Twitter account shared an interesting stat involving one top star.

WWE held a Cross Brand All-Star Battle Royal on Monday’s Raw in Long Island, NY at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on the USA Network. Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Baron Corbin, Cesaro, Braun Strowman, Bobby Lashley, Rey Mysterio, Sami Zayn, Randy Orton, and SmackDown Tag Team Champion Big E took part in the contest.

In the end, Rollins won the match and earned the right to challenge WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar for the title at the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view event.

WWE noted on Twitter that this marked the first time since 2015 that Orton worked a match on the flagship show of the company. You can see their tweet here:

“This is @RandyOrton’s 1st match on #RAW since October of 2015. In July of ’04 (exactly 15 years ago), Orton won a 20-man Battle Royal on @WWE #RAW to become #1 Contender for the World Heavyweight Title. Tonight, he enters another battle royal, trying to be top contender yet again.”
