Two well-known figures in the wrestling industry are Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar. Both are signed to WWE, although The Viper is currently sidelined with an injury. Brock recently had a match at SummerSlam in 2023 against Cody Rhodes.
However, Cody Rhodes is the one who finds Beast innocent. Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar’s first encounter was extremely stressful. On the same evening that Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker were about to square off, during a conversation between Paul Heyman and Lesnar, Heyman advised The Beast, “Do not Take Randy Orton Lightly” because the 20-year-old third-generation wrestler poses a major threat to Brock.
Additionally, Paul stated that Randy is aware of his ins and outs and that anyone who is aware of this might seriously harm Lesnar.
Randy Orton suddenly interrupts their conversation and claims that he would have followed the advice of his agent if he had one at the time, as Brock has Paul Heyman advising him good and bad.

Making intense eye contact Orton also said that he respected Brock Lesnar and didn’t sweat him. From there, a fierce rivalry erupted. It was incredibly exciting to witness the eye contact between two prominent wrestlers.
What happened between Randy Orton and Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam 2016?
Brock Lesnar actually used the UFC technique on Randy Orton toward the end of the contest. Lesnar maintained his advantage for the majority of the match by repeatedly suplexing Orton.
The apex predator was shattered and badly bleeding. Lesnar won the fight via TKO, and even after the referee stopped it, he continued to attack Orton. Shane McMahon visited Orton to see how he was doing, and as compensation, he consumed an F-5 by The Beast.
Numerous pieces of evidence suggested that Lesnar had deviated from the plan. According to rumors, Lesnar and Orton didn’t speak to one another prior to the match, and referee Mike Chioda said during an interview that it was a hostile environment before the pay-per-view.

Then there was Chris Jericho confronting Lesnar backstage, and Lesnar had previously deviated from the script on live television because he was a well-known enough celebrity to get away with it. The evidence was overwhelming that this was a shoot, yet it wasn’t.
This was the anticipated outcome of the game. The fact was known to Orton. There was no doubt in Lesnar’s mind. Everyone else was unaware, except for Vince and Triple H.
