While Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton's WWE Championship clash lived up to its billing as a true heavyweight clash, McIntyre retained after one-upping The Viper in clever fashion. 

Orton wasted no time playing mind games, setting up the champion for multiple false starts at the match's onset before nearly hitting two early RKO attempts. 

The Legend Killer soon initiated an all-out onslaught on the outside of the ring, bashing McIntyre into the post, barricade, announce table and anything else at his disposal.

McIntyre later put Orton on the defensive when he borrowed a page from Ric Flair's playbook, applying a Figure-Four Leglock just weeks after The Viper had taken out his mentor. Orton escaped only with a thumb to the eye while blocking the official's view of his infraction. 

The two titans traded their best blows from there, with McIntyre hitting a Future Shock DDT, while Orton fired back with his trademark powerslam and draping DDT. 

Orton craftily ducked under a Claymore try before McIntyre dodged another RKO. The King of Claymore Country then caught The Viper off-guard with a backslide to pin him for the three-count for the stunning, yet hard-fought win.
