John Cena's 50 greatest matches

#39 John Cena vs. Randy Orton: Summerslam 2007 (Aug. 26, 2007)

John Cena was done for going into his WWE Title defense against longtime rival Randy Orton at SummerSlam 2007. In the days leading up to their highly anticipated showdown, The Viper had struck the WWE Champion with three RKOs, including one onto a steel chair. The brutal attacks served to not only injure Cena, but shake his steely confidence.

Wounded and vulnerable, Cena looked like he was on his way to being Orton’s latest victim in the physical match. Determined after destroying WWE Hall of Famers like Shawn Michaels, Dusty Rhodes and Sgt. Slaughter in the ring, The Viper dropped his powerful opponent with an RKO, but the tenacious Superstar somehow managed to kick out. From there, Cena found it in him to nail an Attitude Adjustment for one of the most inspiring victories of his career. (WATCH)
