Randy Orton defeated John Cena to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at TLC PPV in December. Orton wasn’t happy with the fact that “The Authority” had made a rematch between Cena and Orton for tonight’s Royal Rumble.
The match started slow as the crowd was chanting for Daniel Bryan, Chris Jericho, The Undertaker, “We Want Divas”, “This is Awful”, “This is Boring”. Orton tried his hardest to defuse the situation at one point by going to pose on the top rope and later on in the middle of the ring.
The match finally picked up in the last ten minutes by both guys hitting their respective finishers on each other and each other hitting their opponents finshers. Cena had the STFU locked in and Bray Wyatt’s music hit. Cena tried to fend off the Wyatt Family and Orton came up and gave him the RKO for the pinfall.
