Orton’s RKO has become one of the most lethal finishers in the business. The 14-time world champion delivers the move that has been previously used by the likes of Johnny Ace and DDP to perfection.

The Viper’s uncanny ability to execute his finisher was on full display during last night’s episode of RAW. Orton and Riddle were involved in a tag team title match against Alpha Academy and the odd pairing of Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens.

At one point during the match, Chad Gable climbed the top rope to deliver a moonsault. Just as he about to land, Orton caught Gable mid air with a near-impossible RKO. The arena erupted to the sight of the RKO outta nowhere.

Social media began frenzying over the moonsault RKO. Many took to Twitter to compare the move to Orton’s iconic RKO that he delivered on Evan Bourne years ago on Monday Night RAW.

Orton’s timing when it comes to hitting the RKO remains unparalleled to this day. At 41 years of age, the Viper has already cemented his place among wrestling’s all-time greats. Check out the video and the reactions below.
