WATCH: Randy Orton catches kid with epic RKO outta nowhere into a pool

A 13-time heavyweight champion, Randy Orton has made a name for himself inside a WWE ring. And he's used his RKO finisher -- particularly from "outta nowhere" -- to transcend sports entertainment into pop culture.

Orton's RKO outta nowhere gained tremendous popularity on Vine as users began editing Orton and WWE announcer calls of his finisher into videos where people took major spills for one reason or another.

It did not take long for Orton to notice this, and he's been playing up the meme over the last few years. But he took it to another level during Memorial Day on Monday with this video shot at what is presumably his pool. Orton is playing with his dog on one end of the pool while a bunch of children are swimming, doing flips and jumping into the water -- all while it sounds like his wife is narrating the entire thing.

Orton was absent from SmackDown Live last week after dropping the WWE championship to Jinder Mahal at Backlash. He is set for a rematch at Money in the Bank next month.
