The Apex Predator hit the Grand Slam at FastlaneWhat's the story?

Orton and Mahal had a heated rivalry previous year as The Modern Day Maharaja shocked the world when he beat The Apex Predator for the WWE Championship at Backlash with the help of the Singh Brothers. However, the "WWE Stats & Info" Twitter page has pointed out a unique statistic about Orton's Grand Slam win.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider release date and trailer have (probably) leaked
The Tomb Raider movie will open nationwide this Friday and is already receiving some mixed reviews from critics overseas. Except for Croft and the "surprise" character, Vogel is the only other character that gets significant screen time.

Randy Orton went into Fastlane as the insider's favorite to win the match. He beat the current Universal champion Brock Lesnar to win the WWE title. Originally, Shawn Michaels declared himself the first ever Grand Slam Champion, when he won the European Title back in 1997. The only multi-time WWE Champions to have all of their reigns last longer than 100 days each are Styles, WWE Hall of Famer Randy Savage and WWE Hall of Famer Bruno Sammartino. Three months earlier in August, Dean Ambrose was accorded this honor when he won the Tag Team Championship alongside Seth Rollins.

The Fastlane victory officially made Orton a Grand Slam Champion-the ninth in history (depending on the criteria).

Michigan Women's Team Gets 7-Seed; CMU 11-Seed
The Tigers finished 11-5 in the Southeast Conference and bowed to Texas A&M, 75-69, in an SEC Tournament quarterfinal game. They seem to struggle most with three and four guard lineups, see MI in a 76-64 loss in the Big Ten tourney semifinals.

With The Viper joining the elite ranks of WWE's Grand Slam champions, there is plenty of incentive for him to have a lengthy and successful run with the belt. The "Yes" movement leader who is a four-time world champion has also held the Intercontinental and tag team titles once.

Roode proceeded to have a match with Jinder Mahal, and subsequently lost, adding to the speculation that Jinder would be added to the championship match at WrestleMania.

First Trailer, Stills Released For Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
Actors Katherine Waterston , Dan Fogler , Alison Sudol , Ezra Miller , Zoë Kravitz and Carmen Ejogo also return for the sequel. The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second of five planned Fantastic Beasts films, following the first in 2016.

Orton took out Roode with a mid-air RKO at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Roode says he was beaten by the better man. Hopefully, Orton will be able to elevate the prestige of the title, much like The Miz has done with the Intercontinental Championship over on Raw.
