Orton and Phoenix also had the opportunity to shop at a local street market in Johannesburg. Orton purchased a variety of authentic items, such as a wooden handcarved mask and a few paintings.
The locals swarmed Orton with amazement to see the WWE Superstar appear in such a remote area of Johannesburg.
Day 3: Champions sign for fans
Raw Superstars Candice and Jeff Hardy signed autographs for more than 300 fans today at the Pick' n Pay Hypermarket in Cape Town.
There were more than 1,500 fans who waited in the cold, rainy weather to watch Jeff and Candice entertain the crowd.
Candice and Jeff said they were so impressed with the Cape Town fans, with their energy and determination.
Day 2: With luggage now in hand, Superstars take in the town
WWE Raw Superstars finally received their luggage in Cape Town, South Africa late Tuesday evening. The bags were delivered on the next flight out of Johannesburg to Cape Town around midnight.
On Wednesday morning, WWE Divas Candice Michelle and Maria braved the rainy Cape Town, South Africa weather to tour the town. The Divas visited the oldest surviving castle in South Africa, the Castle of Good Hope, built in 1666.
Maria had the opportunity to practice her drum skills in the courtyard of the Castle. "I've been taking drum lessons every Thursday and this was my chance to play," Maria said.
Candice, Maria and Beth Phoenix all posed for photos for a group of school children and soldiers from Cape Town. The Superstars also toured the castle's historic museum displays.
The group then made their way to the Waterfront to a local artists market. The Divas were photographed buying a variety of local art work, from paintings to a hand-carved wood mask.
Day 1: Arriving in South Africa
After a grueling 20-hour trip, the Raw Superstars finally arrived in Cape Town, South Africa, on Tuesday evening. Upon arrival, the members of the Raw roster were met with a very warm welcome from fans screaming for autographs.
Among the many swamped by admirers was Jeff Hardy, who made it a point to stay until all autographs were signed. Another crowd favorite was John Cena. The WWE Champion even found himself being hunted by local police looking for photos with the Raw Superstar.
After finally making it to their hotel, many Superstars went straight to their rooms for a little nap, while others were just too excited to sleep.
In fact, Beth Phoenix, who has never been outside of North America, was seen eyeing a map of downtown. Hoping to put some more "glam" in the term Glamazon, the Raw Diva said she is looking forward to doing some shopping.
Unfortunately, not everything went well for the Superstars, as many were surprised to learn that their bags have yet to make it to Cape Town. But they're keeping an open mind.
"As long as I have my ring gear, I'm in good shape," said World Tag Team Champion Lance Cade.
