Randy Orton def. Big Show by Disqualification

On Raw, Randy Orton and Sheamus set up The Shield, allowing The Viper to hit the RKO on an unsuspecting Seth Rollins. As a result, The Celtic Warrior promised to get The Viper’s back if the trio sought retribution during his match against Big Show. Typically a loner, Orton chose to thank the first Irish-born World Heavyweight Champion for his offer.

And it’s a good thing he did. For in the grueling final moments of the match — moments after Orton hit The World’s Largest Athlete with an incredible hanging DDT using the top rope — Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Rollins attacked. This caused the match to end, not with a RKO, but with a disqualification victory for The Viper.

The Shield’s offensive came to a screeching halt as quick as it began, though. In the heat of the 3-on-2 melee, Reigns was suddenly shoved into a waking Big Show. The irate giant preceded to KO Punch him out of the ring, causing his shocked associates to retreat. But when Big Show followed up his attack by hitting Orton with a chokeslam, Sheamus blasted the giant with a Brogue Kick.
