Randy Orton Delivers A Perfectly Brutal RKO On His Young Son

WWE wrestler Randy Orton has an impressive collection of signature and finishing moves, including the corner clothesline, diving crossbody, leaping knee drop and the Olympic slam. Arguably the 37-year-old's best move, however, is the RKO (Randy Keith Orton).

Orton first started using the jumping cutter move in 2003, when his feuds with WWE Hall-of-Famers had earned him the title of 'Legend Killer'. It proved incredibly successful.

It's a pretty brutal move and one that you'd only ever expect to see performed by professionals, mainly when wrestling with fellow professionals. But it looks as though Randy found another use for it when he wanted to make pool time fun with the kids a bit more exciting. Check out the video here:

Ouch! Hopefully his son is ok.

The RKO became an internet hit a few years ago when people began splicing funny YouTube fail videos with his signature move. They were uploaded to Vine - remember that six-second site that created mini-celebrities?

Here's a collection of some of the best:

Randy Orton has had quite the career in the WWE, becoming the youngest ever world heavyweight champion in 2004 at the age of 24. He won the WWE Championship nine times, plus the Intercontinental Championship, Royal Rumble and Money in the Bank battles.

He began his career in 2000, after a small stint in a military prison for desertion and disobeying an order from a commanding officer. He originally had a United States Marine Corps tattoo on his left arm but he covered it up after his bad conduct discharge.
