Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Orton

The summer of dream matches continues tonight at SummerSlam when Randy Orton locks horns with Brock Lesnar

Despite being two perennial main eventers who trained side-by-side during their formative years at onetime WWE developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling, The Apex Predator and The Beast Incarnate have only competed against each other once before in a WWE ring.  It happened in September 2002, when both were still WWE rookies. Lesnar, already a month into his reign as WWE Champion, took the victory that night.

Watch The Beast vs. The Viper tonight at SummerSlam

In a match 15 years in the making, Brock Lesnar battles Randy Orton tonight at SummerSlam, live on WWE Network at 7 ET/4 PT.

Much has changed since that lone, fateful bout, of course. Lesnar has since emerged as a true world-beater and the conqueror of The Undertaker’s WrestleMania Streak, a fearless, 286-pound juggernaut who packs dynamite, and bad intentions, in his fists. One of the most dangerous men in combat-sports history, Lesnar remains the only individual to have ever captured the WWE Championship, UFC Championship and NCAA heavyweight wrestling championship.

The Viper, meanwhile, bears little resemblance to the gifted, if inexperienced, shaggy-haired Superstar who stood across the ring from Lesnar 14 years ago. Since his one and only match against The Beast, Orton has gone on to win an incredible 12 World Titles, establishing himself as one of the most decorated Superstars of his generation. Orton has also exhibited on more than one occasion a disconcerting ability to turn sinister at a moment’s notice. Such a dark, remorseless attitude, complemented by the ability to hit the game-ending RKO "outta nowhere," may prove invaluable against a monster like Lesnar.

Watch this historic showdown when SummerSlam takes over the award-winning WWE Network tonight at 7 ET/4 PT.
