Randy Orton Wins US Championship at WWE Fastlane (Pics, Video)


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.

Toys R Us , once the country's preeminent toy retailer, has been unable to keep up with big-box and online competitors. The company said some buyers were interested in purchasing Toys R Us , but the company didn't receive any formal bids.

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).

After a terrific start to his rookie year, he tore his left ACL in week 15 which ended his season prematurely. He was a Pro Bowler and All-Pro in 2015 under Bettcher's first season as defensive coordinator in Arizona.

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.

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.
