WWE Champion Randy Orton def. Goldust

The WWE Universe will never forget the name Goldust, but their memory of him in Toronto will, sadly, be one of defeat after the former Intercontinental Champion failed to beat Randy Orton and get his brother Cody Rhodes’ job back. With that said, The Apex Predator hardly walked away with the win in Toronto. In fact, the early indication was that Orton might be staring at the lights when all was said and done.

The Bizarre One came out so strong in the instant-classic confrontation that Orton – no stranger to battling the Rhodes family – had to take multiple breathers, slithering out of the ring each time Goldust seemed to have the match in hand. Orton’s strategy wasn’t enough to throw Goldust off, though a backdrop onto the barricade and a series of brutal stomps did finally swing the match back in The Viper’s favor. Goldust took a page out of his brother’s book by reversing the RKO into Cross Rhodes, yet Orton’s kickout at two left The Bizarre One reeling with frustration. It was the sudden RKO moments later, however, that truly shattered Goldust’s dreams and body in equal measure.
