Based on their respective interviews before the contest, there was no love lost between The World’s Largest Athlete and WWE’s Apex Predator. The bitter rivalry intensified on SmackDown two weeks prior, when Big Show defeated Orton in a World Heavyweight Title No. 1 Contender’s Match. The World’s Largest Athlete took advantage of an attack by Alberto Del Rio before that match, injuring The Viper’s ribs. On WWE Main Event, though, Orton struck with a fast-paced offense to keep Big Show reeling.The rib injury soon came into play, however, with a powerful blow from the giant stopping Orton’s momentum.

Big Show’s strategy was effective in keeping The Viper on defense throughout the contest. Orton’s injured ribs seemed to be easy targets for the massive fists of The World’s Largest Athlete, and though WWE’s Apex Predator managed to execute an impressive DDT from the third rope, his gigantic opponent was able to roll out of the ring following an RKO.

Relentless, Orton attempted a second RKO at ringside, but Big Show resisted, tossing Orton into the side of the ring with his ribs absorbing the impact. Reeling in pain, Orton’s ribs became the target of a series of huge elbow drops and two Colossal Clutches before Big Show secured the victory with a chokeslam.
