Pictures & Video: 6 WWE Women Who Got RKO-Ed By Randy Orton
When it comes to Randy Orton, he is perhaps the most obnoxious human character created by WWE, ever. This man has no remorse be it his friend or family when it comes to ruthless attacks. Over the year, RKOs flew everywhere around WWE TV programming that made the move popular to event mainstream context.
While making this move famous, The Viper did not back down from attacking even the female superstars, as well. The third-generation superstar is perhaps the only one name who has constantly targeted the women superstars of the company from the past or present.
As he continued cementing his legacy in the WWE, there have seen six women superstars who got RKO-ed by Randy Orton. Here in this story, we would look back to those instances.
The Fabulous Moolah
The Legend Killer nickname was born by the unexpected move of Randy Orton when she attacked the pioneer The Fabulous Moolah on an episode of WWE Raw. During a November 2003 episode, Victoria was beating down The Fabulous Moolah in the ring. Orton rushed in to make the save. He then shook her hands to introduce herself to be the Legend Killer which followed with an RKO. It was the first time that he attacked a woman in a WWE ring.
The Billions Dollar Princess had quite a volatile time with Randy Orton, over the times. From kissing her forcefully to delivering RKOs or get bossed around, Orton has done pretty much everything around Stephanie McMahon.
On a RAW episode on the road to WrestleMania 25, Randy Orton DDT-ed her onto the mat before planting a kiss on her lips as her husband Triple H watched being handcuffed. During the same rivalry, Randy Orton once hit Shane McMahon with a Punt. Stephanie was concerned about his brother’s well-being. The Viper did not give her time to think much as he laid out The Boss’ daughter with an RKO, on the scene.
After splitting up with The Evolution, Randy Orton became the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in 2004. In the following year, he was on his way to facing The Undertaker at Wrestlemania which needed viciousness to showcase his strength. So he chose his own on-screen girlfriend, Stacy Keibler to be the Guinea Pig. On the March 21st episode of RAW in 2005, he hit an RKO on Keibler to end their relationship.
Trish Stratus teamed up with John Cena and Carlito to take on the team of Randy Orton, Lita and Edge in a Mixed Tag Team Match on the September 4th episode of RAW in 2006. Edge and Carlito fought outside the ring whereas Lita was going toe to toe with Trish, inside. Randy Orton sneaked in and delivered an RKO helping Lita to get the pinfall win on her nemesis, on that night.

Randy Orton continued the trend of attacking women in the PG Era of the WWE, too. In 2019, Nia Jax made her entrance at #30 in the Men’s Royal Rumble by attacking R-Truth by replacing him on the spot. After eliminating Ali, Rey Mysterio and Orton teamed up against her. Rey delivered a 619 whereas Orton followed up with an RKO before eliminating Jax from the match.
The latest entry to the ‘RKO-ed by Randy Orton’ club would be Beth Phoenix following what transpired on March 2nd episode of WWE Raw in 2020. Phoenix was out there to provide an update on her husband Edge after the vicious attack by Orton. The Viper’s meaningless insult caused the Hall of Famer to slap and kick him in the guts. In reply, Orton did what he does best and that’s to plant her face to the mat with an RKO.
