Randy Orton had been teasing the arrival of something big on his Twitter account for a while now.
A couple of weeks ago, he posted a clip of a snake, ready to attack. A day later, he posted a picture of similar nature – a vicious looking snake, coiled-up and prepared. It got the WWE Universe talking and speculating about what could the cryptic messages mean.

Turns out, Orton was hinting at something big after all.
Randy Orton launches his clothing line
In an Instagram post, Randy Orton finally broke silence on what was the great mystery. He announced the launch of his new clothing brand ‘Slthr’. The name and concept is obviously taken from his ‘The Viper’ nickname, given to him because of his sleek and unpredictable nature.
Orton is currently involved in a storyline with the WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and the former NXT Champion Keith Lee. He revived his iconic Legend Killer persona recently by attacking Ric Flair and then Shawn Michaels inside the ring.
The Viper went on to challenge McIntyre for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam, but lost the match. He was interrupted by Keith Lee on the episode of RAW the following night. The two locked horns at WWE Payback, where Lee defeated Orton.
Orton had sent McIntyre to the hospital with storyline injury after attacking him backstage. But during last week’s RAW, the Scottish Psychopath arrived at the ring in an ambulance and unloaded a beating on Orton. The two brawled later in the backstage once again.
