ROCKFORD, Ill. – With The Biggest Party of the Summer on the horizon, Rob Van Dam looked to knock "Mr. Money in the Bank" down a notch, No. 1 contender Christian looked to build SummerSlam momentum against World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio and Damien Sandow was simply looking for gold.

Van Dam looked for a victory on the blue brand, but found only the business end of an RKO — delivered after Orton ducked out of the way of RVD’s attempted Five-Star Frog Splash.

Orton’s Friday night win further proves that The Viper can, in fact, strike from anywhere and at any time, and WWE Champion John Cena would do well to grow a pair of eyes in the back of his head.
