Randy Orton has hit several RKOs during his illustrious career, but a popular member of the WWE roster may have produced the best sellers of the move.
Footage has resurfaced of Ricochet selling the RKO better than anyone in WWE history during the build to Crown Jewel in 2019.
The sell was so good that it has reminded fans of just how supremely talented the former Intercontinental Champion truly is.
Ricochet is one of the best in the world
Ricochet, although he may not be pushed as such all the time within WWE, is clearly one of the most talented wrestlers on the planet.
The moves that he does are out-of-this-world, but his ability to make his opponent’s offense look incredible is truly where Ricochet’s strengths lie.
Such is Ricochet’s insane talent that fans have been reminded of just how underutilized the 33-year-old is within WWE at this moment in time.

During a match with Drew McIntyre on Raw in October 2019, Randy Orton got involved, hitting Ricochet with a brutal RKO.
As you can see from the footage above, Ricochet’s sell of the above was outrageous, looking as if he’s been spiked right on the top of his head.
The spot was so good that fans in the arena didn’t even mind that a match between two of WWE’s most talented workers had been ruined by a cheap DQ finish.
Fans have reacted to the clip going viral on social media this week, with some fans even praising Ricochet’s sell as the best that the RKO has ever seen.
Latest news on WWE’s plans for Ricochet
In main roster matches, Ricochet is actually undefeated since Triple H came to power as Head of Creative, suggesting that ‘The Game’ may be wanting to push him.
Although Ricochet hasn’t been given a proper storyline to sink his teeth into, fans have enjoyed seeing the high-flyer pick up wins on TV.
His only loss since August came at NXT World’s Collide, where in a shock return to the brand Ricochet was beaten by Carmelo Hayes in a North American Championship match
