Randy Orton (2,427 Days)
When Randy Orton was drafted to SmackDown in 2011, he likely gazed into the mirror and asked himself one question: “Do I still have what it takes to take back what I lost?”
As a former seven-time World Title holder, The Viper had already proven his credentials as one of the most influential champions of the 21st century. Now, he needed to show his reputation was warranted to a roster of competitors that looked little like the one he faced upon becoming the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in WWE history in 2004.
Of course, WWE’s Apex Predator proceeded to challenge and defeat Christian for the World Heavyweight Title and held it for more than two months. The experience Orton received in the six years, seven months and 24 days between his reigns as World Champion only made the success that much greater.
