• “Tonight’s Survivor Series achievement by Randy Orton is nothing short of mythical” – John Cena
Tonight at the WWE Survivor Series 2021 pay-per-view, RAW Tag Team Champions RK-BRO (Randy Orton & Riddle) will face SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos (Jey Uso & Jimmy Uso).
With this match, Orton will break the record for the most PPV matches in WWF/E history.
After tonight, below will be the list of the top 5 wrestlers with most PPV matches:
1. Randy Orton (177 Matches)
2. Kane (176 Matches)
3. The Undertaker (174 Matches)
4. Triple H (173 Matches)
5. John Cena (163 Matches)
Orton tweeted the following about this:
“I’ve never been one to keep records or stats throughout my career. Early on, it was laughable to consider in my profession you had ‘wins’ and ‘losses’. You certainly wouldn’t talk about it, with the boys much less fans.
But I’m fortunate to have some fans (and friends) that have done just that, kept my stats. Not just wins and losses, but damn near everything you could think of!
It came to my attention that tomorrow at Survivor Series I’ll set a new record for most PPV matches by anyone in WWE history.
The following night on RAW coincidentally, if I have a match, I’ll have had more matches on RAW then anyone in history. I saw this online, checked it, and it is true…kind of hard to believe, as it feels like I only started down in OVW yesterday.
I just wanna take a minute in light of these ‘stats’, and let everyone out there that’s ever supported me in any way know that I am thankful. I also know with all of my heart that I couldn’t have done it without you.
Now on to my 15th Survivor Series…man time flies don’t it?”
16-Time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena, who is also Orton’s longtime friend, tweeted the following about it:
“Tonight’s Survivor Series achievement by Randy Orton is nothing short of mythical. I hope WWE Superstars and WWE Universe understand just how incredible it is. A milestone I’ll never reach and ALWAYS admire. So proud of you Randy. Thank you for the inspiration! #Respect 🥃 “

• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Legend “Wild Samoan” Afa (Real name: Arthur Anoai Sr.) celebrates his 79th birthday today.
Afa used to be one half of the famous 70s & 80s WWF Tag Team ‘The Wild Samoans’ and together with his Tag Team partner Sika, they won the WWF Tag Team Championship on 2 occasions.
He returned to the World Wrestling Federation in 1992 as the manager of The Headshrinkers, but when the team disbanded in 1995, Afa retired as a TV character and became the head coach of his very own Pro Wrestling school, the Wild Samoan Training Facility.
In 2007, both Afa & Sika were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by their respective sons, former WWF/E wrestlers Samu & Rosey.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AFA!
