Randy Orton def. WWE Tag Team Champion Kane

Chalk one up for the snake in the grass, as Randy Orton went one-on-one with Kane in singles competition and found himself standing tall in a rematch of the duo’s grueling WrestleMania XXVIII contest. But despite his victory, perhaps Orton’s jab earlier in the evening comparing Kane to Barney the Dinosaur was premature. Although he’s traded in terror for therapy, The Big Red Monster ran absolutely roughshod over The Apex Predator for the majority of the bout, tossing Orton over the ropes in a fit of rage and controlling the nine-time World Champion to such a degree that Orton couldn’t create separation. It ultimately took an act of fate to turn the tide of the contest when Daniel Bryan came down to ringside — violating the express wishes of his tag partner, nonetheless — and diverting Kane’s attention just long enough for Orton to lash out with the RKO and cover Kane for the win. Call it another match that Bryan cost Kane; although for what it’s worth, he seemed slightly conflicted about it this time around. Maybe Bryan’s intentions really were pure this time, but either way, he’ll likely have hell to pay when his partner comes calling.
