On This Day: Randy Orton unified the WWE and World Championship

Published Date:

On this day, 8 years back Randy Orton did the unthinkable at the Tables Ladders and Chair PPV.

Randy Orton became the first ever WWE and World Heavyweight Champion and the second ever unified champion in history.

Randy with this victory did establish himself in his gimmick back then as the face of the WWE.

He was the one marching with the WWE’S torch in his hand.

Randy Orton cashed in his money in the bank on the new WWE Champion Daniel Bryan with the help of Triple H.

He started the reign of authority alongside with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon with this victory.

John Cena who lost his title to Daniel Bryan that night was out of action for over a period of time because of his elbow injury.

He made his return and won the World Heavyweight title back from then Champion Alberto Del Rio.

Randy Orton was on top of his game and in his prime and was once again challenged by one of his biggest opponent.

John Cena brought the challenge to Randy Orton and WWE decided to unify both the championships.

After many Attitude Adjustments and many RKOs, Randy decided to handcuff John to the ropes.

John did manage to escape it but Randy had the last laugh. He climbed the ladder and became the first ever WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Randy Orton became the second ever Unified champion in the history of WWE after Chris Jericho.

Randy did earn the title two more times on different occasions. Once against Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania and second recently against Drew McIntyre.
