Randy Orton is just days away from holding the record for working the most matches at WWE pay-per-view events in history.
Raw Tag Team Champions Orton & Riddle of RK-Bro will meet SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos in a non-title match at this Sunday’s Survivor Series event.
A fan on Twitter pointed out that this match will be Orton’s 177th on WWE pay-per-view, according to ProfightDB. The future WWE Hall of Famer is tied for the most PPV matches at 176 with Kane right now.
The Undertaker, who is now retired, is behind Orton and Kane with 174 WWE pay-per-view bouts while Triple H has worked 173 matches.
Orton had his first WWE pay-per-view match at the 2003 SummerSlam pay-per-view event when he was part of the World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber bout.
Orton and Riddle last defended their titles on PPV at Crown Jewel last month against AJ Styles and Omos.
