-Orton is also the SECOND ever 3rd-generation superstar to win a World Title. He also joins the following 35 men as having won a World Championship under the auspices of the WWWF/WWF/WWE: Buddy Rogers, Bruno Sammartino, Ivan Koloff, Pedro Morales, Stan Stasiak, Superstar Billy Graham, Bob Backlund, Antonio Inoki, The Iron Sheik, Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, Randy Savage, The Ultimate Warrior, Sgt. Slaughter, The Undertaker, Ric Flair, Bret Hart, Yokozuna, Kevin Nash, Shawn Michaels, Sid, Steve Austin, Kane, The Rock, Mick Foley, Triple H, Vince McMahon, The Big Show, Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho, Brock Lesnar, Goldberg, Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit & John Layfield. -Benoit's 154 day reign is the 2nd longest in the history of RAW's World Title (and longest by a face) and the longest by a face champion since Shawn Michaels' first WWF Title reign (which lasted 231 days). Not too shabby.
