* BrokenAce: Presented this way in kayfabe, with some RealitySubtext. Orton was the talented athlete that most of WWE's higher-ups envisioned at the top of the company back around 2003-2005, but never surpassed Wrestling/JohnCena's status mostly because of his inability to stay out of his own way. In kayfabe, especially, most of his heel turns, his most recent in particular, are marked with bouts of insecurity and paranoia - despite [[FridgeBrilliance (or perhaps because of)]] ostensibly being Wrestling/TheAuthority's handpicked champion.[[note]] remember what TripleH did to Randy when they were in Wrestling/{{Evolution}}?[[/note]] And, both in and out of kayfabe, Orton still occasionally dips into anger and behavioral issues.

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: When he was part of Evolution with Wrestling/TripleH, Wrestling/RicFlair and Wrestling/{{Batista}}, he won the World Heavyweight Championship from Wrestling/ChrisBenoit at SummerSlam. The next night following a rematch, in which he retained, the other seemed to be celebrating with him, only to turn on him and giving him one hell of a beatdown. TripleH tried to force Orton to relinquish the title the following week, only for Orton to spit in Triple H's face and run off with the title, thus setting off a {{face}} turn.

** A couple of his early feuds saw him getting hit in the nuts a lot. Then again, when one of the guys on the other end of the feud is RicFlair...

* GeniusBruiser: It's not discussed ''ad nauseum'' like it is for some people - but if you look at Randy's career it becomes clear that he's very well versed in psychological warfare. [[FridgeBrilliance Which makes perfect sense,]] given that he was mentored early in his career by [[Wrestling/JakeRoberts two]] [[Wrestling/TripleH masters]] of it. In fact, as a superior athlete, he likely would be ''better'' in the category of this trope than his two teachers. The only things that hold him back in such a regard have been his anger issues and his durability.

** This was CM Punk's motivation for making [[TheNexus The New Nexus]] target Orton. (See LargeHam.) He even punted them [[PutOnABus on a bus]] during their feud, and it would appears as this would apply again, but then three out of four of Orton's [[TheNexus punt victims]] came back off the bus to beat him down and cost him another shot at the WWE title. He then defeated all of them once again, dominated CMPunk twice in a row, and went on to win World Heavyweight Championship 2 days later in a match he only "earned" via Teddy Long's clear populist favoritism. Opening ''yet another'' clear floodgate of Karma Houdini-ness.

** In a shocking twist, he was also the ''recipient'' of this at ''Summerslam 2016''. Wrestling/BrockLesnar's elbows did very, ''very'' bad things to Randy's forehead.

* HypercompetentSidekick: A large chunk of the last several years for Orton has seen the twelve-time World Champion as an enforcer to other stars. After he lost the title(s) himself, he spent a fairly lengthy stint helping to keep the titles on Wrestling/SethRollins (and[=/=]or off Wrestling/DanielBryan) as a member of Wrestling/TheAuthority. In 2016, he's a member of Wrestling/TheWyattFamily.

These days, Orton is better known for his decade-long feud with Wrestling/JohnCena -- actually much longer, originating back when they were both scrappy upstarts in OVW. In fact, you would be forgiven for thinking these two are descended gods who have been fighting down through the centuries. There's been roughly 30 single matches between Cena and Orton, but if you count multiple matches —Tag Matches, Triple Threats, Hell in a Cells, Elimination Matches, Elimination Chambers — the number is [[TheUsualAdversaries probably around 125.]]

These days, Orton is better known for his decade-long feud with Wrestling/JohnCena -- actually much longer, originating back when they were both scrappy upstarts in OVW. Ironically, in an inversion of their usual WWE feud dynamic, Orton was the face and Cena was the heel. In fact, you would be forgiven for thinking these two are descended gods who have been fighting down through the centuries. There's been roughly 30 single matches between Cena and Orton, but if you count multiple matches —Tag Matches, Triple Threats, Hell in a Cells, Elimination Matches, Elimination Chambers — the number is [[TheUsualAdversaries probably around 125.]]
