There is no doubt that Randy Orton is a future WWE Hall of Famer. 

The Viper has been a main event superstar ever since he first stepped onto RAW way back in 2002 - and he's done it all in the last 16 years. 

HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS 

Orton is a Grand Slam champion, meaning he's won every men's championship on offer in WWE. 

He's won the United States title, the Intercontinental Championship and the Tag Team title belts once, but it's his impressive run with the promotions top prize that makes him special.  

The Viper is a 13-time world champion, winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship four times, and the WWE Championship on nine separate occasions.  

At the age of 38, before his recent knee surgery, Orton was still being pushed as a champion, even in 2018.

RANDY'S DEVASTATING MOVE SET

Part of what has made him so good is his move set. The Viper has one of the most memorable finishers in WWE - the RKO. 

But it's not just that. It's the RKO, combined with his signature moves, a brutal running punt and the draping spike DDT, that make Orton so dangerous.

Those are all moves that fans associate with him - but it appears that another of WWE's top heels may have just adopted one of Orton's favourite signatures. 

TOMMASO CIAMPA'S SPIKE DDT 

On this week's episode of NXT, the developmental brand's top bad guy laid a beatdown to champion Aleister Black. 

During the sneaky backstage attack, Ciampa draped Black over a table, before spiking his head into the ground with a DDT. 

Natrually, these actions drew some comparisons with Orton - so much so that Dustin Rhodes, or  Goldust, quote tweeted NXT, bringing The Viper directly into the conversation.  

Now, it's not very often that one wrestler can get away with using another's signature move, but this time, it appears Orton is on board with Ciampa's devastating tactics.

RANDY APPROVES

The WWE legend had a pretty simple response to what he was seeing, simply replying "Mmmhmm" to Dustin's tweet. 

Now, Orton is pretty emotionless on Twitter these days, so that's probably as close to a positive reaction as we'll ever get.  

In fact, he reacted quite well to the move, considering it's one he made famous.
