John Cena & Kane Lead Praise For Randy Orton Setting New WWE Record At Survivor Series 2021
Orton is WWE's leading PPV match holder
WWE Hall Of Famer Kane and the legendary John Cena have led the praise on social media for Randy Orton, who broke a longstanding WWE record with his showing at Survivor Series 2021.
In competing at Survivor Series on Sunday 21 November, Orton has become the wrestler with the most pay-per-view match outings in WWE history. The Viper made his first pay-per-view showing at SummerSlam 2003, competing in an Elimination Chamber, and topped the records with the Tag Team Match on Sunday.
The Survivor Series match takes Orton to 177 pay-per-view bouts in WWE, topping the record long held by Kane. The Big Red Machine took to social media to hail Orton for his accomplishment prior to Sunday's event.
Kane wrote: "Congratulations to @RandyOrton, who will break my record for most career PPV matches at #SurvivorSeries. Without a doubt, the Viper is already one of the best ever and still at the top of his game!"
Orton's long-time on-screen rival and real-life friend Cena also shared his admiration for the Legend Killer's record-breaking run.
Cena wrote: "Tonight’s #SurvivorSeries achievement by @RandyOrton is nothing short of mythical. I hope @WWE superstars and @WWEUniverse understand just how incredible it is.
"A milestone I’ll never reach and ALWAYS admire. So proud of you Randy. Thank you for the inspiration!"
Coincidentally, Orton will also set the record for most matches ever had on WWE Monday Night Raw the next time he competes on the red brand also.
