N.C. STATE UNIVERSITY – Although Antonio Cesaro was unsuccessful in his bid to reclaim the United States Championship last week, he still promised greatness on Raw and battled Randy Orton on the latest episode of WWE Main Event. Also, Justin Gabriel joined forces with The Usos to face 3MB in six-man tag team action!

Randy Orton def. Antonio Cesaro

Although he failed to reclaim the U.S. Title from Kofi Kingston on WWE Main Event last week, Antonio Cesaro’s renewed vigor has caused the Swiss Superman to ditch his yodeling and instead set out to prove that he is the best grappler in WWE. Cesaro dominated Zack Ryder on Raw before staking a bold claim: "I put the 'W' in WWE ... there is no one who can do what I do in this ring."

Facing former WWE Champion Randy Orton on WWE Main Event provided the Swiss-born Superstar with an excellent opportunity to prove his clout and “walk the walk.” The two have squared off previously, although Cesaro has yet to defeat WWE’s Apex Predator.

As the opening bell sounded, the Swiss Superman’s strategy involved perfectly partnering his power and technical abilities. However, The Viper is no slouch, eventually taking control and methodically striking his opponent. Cesaro displayed adaptability by altering his approach and using his power to strike back methodically in his own right. Targeting Orton’s shoulder – wisely trying to neutralize the RKO – the former U.S. Champion proved his abilities at The Viper’s expense in and out of the ring.

Fighting back, Orton tried to match Cesaro pound-for-pound, but the Swiss Superman often rebounded and maintained control. Focusing his attacks on Orton’s shoulder, the WWE Universe gasped for air with each near-fall in Cesaro’s favor. After taking out WWE’s Apex Predator by tossing him into the air and executing a perfect European uppercut, the match seemed to be all but over as the Swiss-born Superstar lifted his opponent up – no doubt preparing for The Neutralizer. Unfortunately for Cesaro, The Viper dug deep and mustered the energy for an RKO to secure the victory.
