Ever since Randy Orton won the 2014 Royal Rumble, he has been on a path of destruction. First he took out his arch nemesis The Rock, then he targeted his own allies in Triple H and then WWE Champion Brock Lesnar.
Orton successfully conquered Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania, submitting Lesnar in the Main Event of the grandest stage of them all. But, that one victory is simply not enough for Orton, Randy is looking to take out the Authority for good.
This match is do or die for both the Authority and Brock Lesnar. Lesnar was drafted to Smackdown in the 2014 Draft, but was thrown a life line by his boss Triple H to give him the chance to cash in his rematch clause at Extreme Rules. If Lesnar loses, he will have to complete his obligations from the draft and head to Smackdown, however if he wins Randy Orton will be replacing him and will be heading back to the brand he once managed.
Triple H has given the direct message to Lesnar that this is his last chance to overturn his failure at Wrestlemania, if Lesnar loses will the Triple H & Brock Lesnar alliance end?
Randy Orton has been labeled “a lucky man” as many analyists arguing his victory at Wrestlemania was a “fluke”. Orton has the chance to silence his criticts by pinning Lesnar not once, but twice in the same match to retain his championship.
