An entire top 10 of the best counters to the RKO

Just this week (Sept. 7) on Monday Night Raw, Keith Lee demonstrated a unique counter to Randy Orton’s devastating RKO, where he stood in position and refused to budge, even though Randy’s hands were clasped and yanking down.

That means it’s time for WWE to look back on some of the best counters to Orton’s finisher that we’ve ever seen. My personal favorites are the creative handstand from Mustafa Ali (remember him?), as well as Shinsuke Nakamura’s arm bar. But the list also includes a nifty Unprettier, an intense Olympic Hero, a couple world title changes, and even a roll up.

Check out the above video to see some of these cool moments, and let us know in the comments if you have any favorite RKO counters that didn’t make the list.
