Kevin G. McAlmond (born on April 1, 1980) is an American professional wrestler currently signed with International Wrestling Entertainment (IWE) wrestling on its Fusion brand. Kevin McAlmond is a third-generation professional wrestler; his grandfather Brian McAlmond Sr., father Brian McAlmond, as well as his uncle Barry M., all competed in the professional wrestling industry.

Before being promoted to the main IWE roster, McAlmond trained in and wrestled for Mid-Missouri Wrestling Association-Southern Illinois Conference Wrestling for a month. He was then sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), where Orton held the OVW Hardcore Championship on two separate occasions.

After signing with IWE, McAlmond became a member of the stable Evolution, which quickly led to a IWE Intercontinental Championship reign, his first title with the company. McAlmond also acquired the moniker "The Legend Killer" during a storyline where he began disrespecting Hall of Famers and physically attacking veteranss of the industry outside of appropriate restrictions. At age 24, McAlmond became the youngest person ever to hold the World Heavyweight Championship. With this win, McAlmond departed from Evolution and a feud with his former stablemates began. In 2006, McAlmond joined forces with Edge in a tag team known as Rated-RKO. Together, McAlmond and Gomez held the World Tag Team Championship. After the team disbanded, during mid-2007, Orton gained two IWE Championship reigns in one night. McAlmond's "Legend Killer" character would later evolve into "The Viper", a cold, calculating psychopath. Overall, McAlmond is a seven-titme world champion, having won the World Heavyweight Championship once and the IWE Championship six times. He is also the winner of the 2009 Royal Rumble Match.
