During his legendary career, The Undertaker has taken hundreds of finishing moves, but one, in particular, he says was the easiest to take: Randy Orton’s RKO.

Few professional wrestlers have done and seen as much as The Undertaker. “The Deadman” has faced many of the greatest performers of all time and has been on the receiving end of their legendary finishers. Be it Ric Flair’s vaunted figure-four leglock, Hulk Hogan’s leg drop, John Cena’s attitude adjustment, or Brock Lesnar’s F5, The Undertaker has taken them all.

Orton’s RKO is one of the most iconic finishers in professional wrestling history. While many deemed it a knock-off of Diamond Dallas Page’s diamond cutter, Orton took it to legendary levels in the way he was able to use it in so many memorable and unexpected ways.
