Randy Orton has been with WWE for 15 years now, and over the course of his 15 year career he’s won the WWE World Championship 13 times. Orton is the current WWE Champion, and he recently spoke to WWE.com about some of the biggest moments of his career.

Orton also happens to be the master of the RKO, and he’s pulled off some impressive RKOs over the years, but according to Orton, the RKO he hit on Evan Bourne is still his favorite.

“I would say probably the one with Evan Bourne. It just shows you how important timing is and I felt like the timing on that particular one was harder to achieve than any of the other ones. The one on Seth [Rollins] at WrestleMania was difficult, too. I’ve done some cool ones with Dolph [Ziggler] and Cesaro, too, and springboards in with Carlito and CM Punk. The timing is what makes that. But the hardest one, the highest-risk one to hit perfect was the Evan Bourne one, and that’d probably be why it’s my favorite.”

Orton has had his ups and downs throughout his career, but he’s also worked with the best of the best.

Things really started to take off for Randy Orton when Ric Flair and Triple H recruited him to join Evolution, and the current WWE Champion says that’s when he learned the most.

“When I was in Evolution I definitely learned the most; I had Hunter and Ric. Those are two of the top-five ever, maybe three. Whether it was making my lockup better or locker-room etiquette. We flew into Alaska one time and there was no food, so Hunter ordered pizzas and hot dogs and the boys got to eat because he took the initiative. Learning locker-room leadership skills from these guys and learning how to be one of the boys and take care of them, and how much that comes full circle when you take care of them. It just helps for a better locker room. I learned that from them.”
