Keith Lee vs. Randy Orton [Grudge Match]

Result: Keith Lee (via pinfall)

Rating: 3.5/5.0 Stars

Grade: B-, BASK IN HIS GLORY! It was quite surprising that Orton lost that quickly, but the booking was well done. Great way to introduce Lee to the main roster as a future dominant force in the main event scene. Trilogy for Orton and Lee, perhaps?

Randy Orton and Keith Lee started off hot with quick strikes. Orton delivered a huge Back Suplex to Lee on the announce table. Orton locked in his patented rest hold on Lee, but Lee gets out of it and bulldozes Orton outside the ring. Lee gave a back suplex of his own to Orton on the announce table. Lee tossed Orton back into the ring, but Orton capitalized with his patented DDT from the ropes to Lee.

Orton attempted the RKO, but Lee countered with the Spirit Bomb for the pinfall and the victory. Wow, that was quick but an impressive victory for Lee on the main roster. The match could have been longer, but his first main roster PPV victory was absolutely limitless. Bask in his glory! What does this mean for Orton’s aspirations for the WWE Championship? Only Vince knows. Nonetheless, a trilogy is possible between these two juggernauts.
