I remember 2 mainly. #1 was during the whole Age of Orton era when he was feuding with Shawn Michales.

And #2 was in 2013-2014 but that was mainly because he lost it to Daniel Bryan at WM 30.

the last one he had whilst i was a full time watcher, so through 2009
the rest were passable, they put the belt on him and edge far to much imo, they should have given them fewer but longer reigns

I remember the one before Wrestlemania 30.
And that's because of Bryan.

I also remember how hard it sucked.

Re: out of Randy Orton's 13 title reigns.....

The Era of Orton reign was fun, good storylines and matches with Cena, HBK and Jeff Hardy.

The important thing with Orton, Edge and specially Triple H is that they were trusted world title reigns on the RTWM, that means they are money makers, and the company wasn't afraid of putting a world title feud on their shoulders.

Guys like Swagger, Great Khali, Christian, Jeff Hardy, Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio, Big Show, Dean Ambrose, and Kevin Owens are not on that level, it doesn't matter how many reigns they had if they never were trusted WM storyline reigns.

Seldom watched at the time. So I remember his intercontinental reign more. And his atrocious first world title.

You can count the memorable title reigns in the past 10 years on 1 hand, they're very rare. His most memorable is the one in 2007. It had good build and he was peaking at the time, but sadly there is always the master to prevent Orton from reaching his full potential :trips

first 4 i think....

he had like 3 title runs when he was truly the crazy viper guy right ? and the first is obviously most memorable....when he decided to look under the ring for a weapon and found the World Title

the first one is memorable for me simply because I wasnt expecting it at the time, HHH taking it right back off him was standard HHH at the time.

though due to that line of events I suspect it was more an attempt to erase some of brock lesnar by making randy the youngest world champion so the commentators dont have to mention him etc.

Feel like the "Age of Orton" reign was his best. Feuding with Cena, HHH, HBK, Jericho and Hardy throughout that period, Orton put out a lot of great matches and segments.

His heel run with the Authority leading into WM30 would be my second favorite.

The other 11 are pretty much unmemorable.
