Summerslam: WWE Championship Match Preview
The greatest rivalry in the history of WWE Universe Mode continues as The Rock challenges the WWE Champion; ‘Randy Orton’ for the WWE Championship at Summerslam. Their saga began at the Vengeance PPV last year where ‘Randy Orton’ was sent packing by The Rock in a Hell in a Cell match. Both men’s careers on the line, ‘The Rock’ pinned ‘Orton’ to keep his career alive and complete a successful comeback to the WWE.
Fast forward to the Survivor Series PPV where Randy would make his return to help The Authority defeat Team People, however, it wasn’t until the Elimination Chamber PPV where The Rock and Randy Orton would officially meet again in singles action. The opportunity to Main Event Wrestlemania was on the line; it was The Rocks one last chance to have a championship match, but it would Randy Orton who once again spoiled the party by defeating The Rock and sent him into immediate retirement.
The Rock would come out of retirement thanks to a phone call from Ortons longtime rival Triple H. Triple H would reinstate The Rock to face Orton at Summerslam for the WWE Championship; a title that Orton has held since Wrestlemania. The Rock has repeatedly said that he isn’t back to face Randy Orton, hes back to win the WWE Championship; the one achievement that alluded him during his last run in the company. These two men are at one win a piece, with Summerslam being the deciding match between the two, everything is on the line. Pride, passion, success, ego and more importantly the WWE Championship.
The conclusion to the greatest rivalry in the history of WWE Universe Mode will occur at Summerslam. Will Randy Orton live to fight another day as WWE Champion? Or will The Rock finally achieve greatness and define his legacy as one of the greatest of all time?
