Today is a HUGE day for Randy-Orton.com, today marks the site’s 10th year the site has been online. 1..2..3..4..5..10 years! How crazy is that?
We honestly cannot believe it’s been 10 years since R-O was opened. What started out as us just helping a good friend out with her Randy site has flourished into one of the longest running & top resources for Randy and his career. We truly couldn’t be more proud of how far the site as come. The site has been through it’s fair share of ups & downs, drama and everything in between but after the dust settled, much like Randy, R-O always came back strong.
None of this would have been possible without the constant support and kind words from all of you guys over the years so, we want to thank you for everything. Without you guys, there’s no way we’d be where we are today. We’d also like to take a moment to thank the man himself, Randy. You are an amazing athlete & a true talent in the business, a future legend as it stands, and to say we’re proud to be fans of yours would probably be an understatement. Thank you for the support of the work we do, it means a lot more than you realize.
Once more, thank you all for your support these past ten years. Please know that we appreciate every bit of support and kindness you extend to us, and it does not go unnoticed. XOXO – Angela & Carol
This day to many is merely a day of fools, the one day a year put aside for all you jesters out there to pull one over on some poor unsuspecting soul to get a good laugh. However, to any Randy Orton fan out there today is certainly no joke but a day of celebration for our favorite third-generation wrestler. And with each year that passes it becomes a little more wondrous to us just how long we’ve been supporting you. There is no arguing that in all these years, our pride and admiration for you as grown tremendously. We’re proud to call you our friend, and look forward to what the future holds. Here’s to many more, cheers! 🙂

First of all Ang and I would just like to say thank you to each of you who stuck by us all these years, and still supported us through our much needed hiatus. We appreciate your support and patience so much. Secondly, we hope you all find the new revamped version of the site easy to browse, and appeasing to the eye. We both worked extremely hard on getting it in tip top shape and we hope it was worth it.
We thought it was about time for a new beginning, and decided to start fresh. So, you might notice our past updates going back as far as 2008 are no longer available. In addition to the new design, we also took the time to archive our gallery which holds photos from 2004-2012 and thought it best to start fresh in that area as well.
To make things easier we’ll break down the highlights of the new site:
- Comments – We have enabled comments once again on our posts, however we will be keeping a watchful eye on them. So, with that said all comments are to be moderated before being published on the site, but otherwise have fun!
- New Gallery – The old gallery had grown so huge, nearly 100,000 photos and over 18,000,000 views that we decided to archive it. Thus meaning, all new photos are to be uploaded into our NEW gallery while the old would can still be viewed.
- Screen Captures – We know many of you were saddened to learn of our decision to cease capping Randy for the site about a year ago when we announced it, and with good reason we thought it best to stop. As we’ve said before it is a very timely hassle especially when you don’t have much time to begin with. With that said though, we have decided to bring them back. So you can expect weekly high quality captures as well as us catching up on the year of captures we missed over time.
- Mobile Ready – For many of our visitors who visit the site via their cell phones we have made sure the site is easily viewable on all mobile phones as well. And it even has an option to turn it off, that is if you prefer to view the non-mobile version of the site.
We’d love to hear your feedback on the new design, so feel free to leave a comment and let us know!
