#10 Randy Orton
Some Superstars truly are born better. From the moment he first set foot in a WWE ring, it was clear that Randy Orton was destined for great things. This limitless potential was first realized at Armageddon in 2003 when the third-generation Superstar defeated Rob Van Dam for the Intercontinental Championship.
The Viper would go on to have one of the longest reigns of the modern era, defending the title for 210 days against the likes of Mick Foley and Edge. In the eyes of many in the WWE Universe, Orton’s exceptional run as Intercontinental Champion restored the title’s prestige after its 2003 revival.

Hey, remember when I said don't listen to the net? I'm fine. Del Rio's kicks are hard as hell, and I caught one to the neck, part of the job
