Randy Orton Thanks Fans As He Approaches Two Record-Breaking Milestones In WWE

Randy Orton is closing in on two record-breaking milestones in WWE.

On Sunday, November 21, Randy Orton and Riddle are set to compete at Survivor Series in a match against the SmackDown Tag Team Champions, The Usos. For Orton, however, this bout holds more significance than just brand supremacy.

With 176 WWE PPV matches under his belt, Orton is tied with Kane for the most of any Superstar in the company's history. On Sunday, he will surpass the WWE Hall of Famer and hold that distinction all to himself.

Additionally, Orton has the chance to snag another record from Kane the following night on Raw (should he compete). The Viper wrote online that he's one match away from having competed more on Monday nights than anyone in WWE history.

Orton took to Twitter and thanked all of his supporters, saying that he couldn't have done it without them. He 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) 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 made his WWE TV debut in April of 2002 and has gone on to become one of the most decorated performers in the company's history.

Fightful will have live coverage of WWE Survivor Series this Sunday beginning at 7 p.m. ET with a post-show review immediately following its conclusion. The full card can be seen here.
