WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton def. John Cena

With the WWE Universe still jeering him, a reeling Orton countered with an RKO and very nearly had Cena in position for a punt to the head. When that went south, both champion and challenger decided to ditch their own playbooks and take a page out of each other’s. Orton locked in a wicked-looking STF and Attitude Adjustment; Cena lashed out with an RKO in response. At this point, there weren’t so much two Superstars left  as there were beaten shells of them, so there was nothing left to do but empty the arsenal. Cena, for his part, got the better of the ensuing exchange when he administered a tornado DDT from the top rope, locking in the STF again and stranding Orton in the middle of the ring, with no escape available to him.

That is, until Bray Wyatt delivered it. Suddenly appearing at ringside with Erick Rowan & Luke Harper, The Eater of Worlds took Cena’s focus off the Champion of Champions long enough for Orton to hit the pivotal RKO that spelled Cena’s doom. The Viper – wanting no part of the man whom he earlier referred to as a “‘Duck Dynasty’ reject,”– slunk out through the audience and left Cena to the mercy of Wyatt. The “Man of 1,000 Truths” directed his Family to discipline Cena, and, with the WWE standard-bearer left limp in his arms, proclaimed his clan “the creators of the new world” before putting Cena to sleep with Sister Abigail.

So that’s the way it ends for John Cena: Denied his glory and stripped of his strength. What would have been a vindicating win was instead a crushing loss, sealed with a kiss.
