Randy Ormon, the long-time WWE superstar, died at the age of 85 on Sunday.
He was 87.
He had been battling cancer for the past several years.
He died surrounded by his family and friends.
Orton, who was born in Pittsburgh and grew up in Pittsburgh, won a record number of WWE championships, including the World Heavyweight Championship in 1993.
He wrestled in the squared circle for more than 15 years and became the first person to capture the Intercontinental Championship.
Orton was also a WWE Hall of Famer and was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2006.
He was also inducted in the WWE National Wrestling Hall Of Famer Hall of Fame in 2014.
Ormon was inductee into the Professional Wrestling Hall of Honor in 2016.
He served as the head coach for the WWE developmental brand, WWE Raw, which debuted in 2006 and is the longest running developmental program in professional wrestling.
He also served as a coach for ECW, which was a developmental program from 1993 to 2003.
In 2007, Orton announced that he was retiring after a four-year run with the company.
He said at the time that he would not return to the business because he felt it was not right to keep him around as a mentor and coach.
“I felt it would be unfair to keep me around because of the way I was treated in the business,” he said in a statement at the end of that year.
“The way I have been treated since I left the business has been disgraceful.
I have always tried to do the best for the company, the people I have worked with and the fans of WWE.
I will not be working for the future of the company in the near future.
I am sorry.
I wish my wife and children well.
I loved them so much and I have so much respect for them.”
Orton, a four time World Heavy-weight Champion, was induct into the Hall Of The Sportsmen in 2007 and also received the WWE’s Vince McMahon Outstanding Wrestler Award in 2016 and the WWE World Heavyweights Championship in 2018.
