** Alternatively some of his physical mannerisms, the snake-related nickname, and the heel persona of being sadistic and merciless could be seen as a nod to [[Wrestling/JakeRoberts Jake "The Snake" Roberts]].

** The second was in the 8/1/2016 episode of ''[=RAW=]'', as part of his ''Wrestling/{{Summerslam}}'' match with Wrestling/BrockLesnar. To put into context: Wrestling/PaulHeyman was doing his usual LargeHam promo for his client, up to the point where he emphasized the fact that [[TemptingFate Orton can never hit the RKO on Lesnar]] (while the camera was focused on Lesnar). Cue RKO ''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu on Lesnar.]]''

* AscendedMeme: The "RKO Outta Nowhere" meme, during the 4/20/2015 episode of ''[=RAW=]''. To put into context: Orton was slated for a cage match against Wrestling/SethRollins at ''Extreme Rules'' that year, with a stipulation that the RKO was banned. Seeing as he would not get to use it during their match (which was at that time a week away), Orton decided to "get it all out of his system" and RKO anyone he sees. One highlight was when he RKO'd Wrestling/HeathSlater through the table at the canteen; prior to the latter's OhCrap face, no one expected Orton to be there as the camera was focused on Slater.
