Orton is a third-generation professional wrestler; his grandfather Bob Orton, Sr., his father “Cowboy” Bob Orton, and his uncle Barry Orton all competed in the professional wrestling business.

Before being promoted to the main World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) roster, Orton trained in and wrestled for Mid-Missouri Wrestling Association-Southern Illinois Conference Wrestling for a month. He was then sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), where he held the OVW Hardcore Championship twice.Orton became a member of the stable Evolution shortly after his WWE debut, which quickly led to a

Intercontinental Championship reign, his first title with the company. He also acquired the moniker “The Legend Killer” during a storyline where he began disrespecting and then physically attacking WWE Hall of Famers and wrestling veterans. At age 24, he became the youngest person ever to hold the World Heavyweight Championship. With this win, he departed from Evolution and a feud with his former stablemates began. In 2006, Orton joined forces with Edge in a tag team known as Rated-RKO. Together, they held the World Tag Team Championship.

After Rated-RKO disbanded in mid-2007, Orton gained two WWE Championship reigns in one night. He formed the group The Legacy with Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase in 2008. It disbanded in 2010 and Orton returned to singles competition. In 2013 he aligned with The Authority, who named him the “face of the WWE”. Overall, he has won 14 total championships in WWE. He is also the winner of the 2009 Royal Rumble match and has headlined many pay-per-view events for the organization, including WrestleMania XXV and WrestleMania XXX.
