This Sunday at Hell in a Cell Randy Orton will be involved in one of the two main events on the night, continuing his decade-long feud with John Cena.
The second main event of the night will see The Lunatic Fringe Dean Ambrose take on Mr. Money in the Bank and former Shield stable-mate; Seth Rollins.

Ever since The Authority was formed after the 2013 SummerSlam main event, where Triple H assisted Randy Orton in cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase on Daniel Bryan where he became the WWE Champion.
Since then Orton enjoyed a limited time at the top of the WWE; becoming the WWE World Heavyweight Champion by defeating John Cena at the TLC event and then dropping it to Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania.
Since then Orton has been playing second fiddle to Seth Rollins and didn’t look like the Orton the fans know and love; the villainous and self-centred individual fans just love to hate.
This past week on Monday Night Raw, Randy Orton had one of his best weeks as part of The Authority, being able to speak his mind by himself with no Triple H or Seth Rollins by his side.
Orton vs Cena
It was revealed that the winner of the John Cena and Randy Orton will receive a shot at Brock Lesnar’s WWE World Heavyweight Championship, and Randy Orton needs to be the one who walks out of The American Airlines Center as the winner, and the number one contender.
It will be easy to hand Cena another victory over Randy Orton to possibly conclude their decade-long feud as well as having Cena and Lesnar face off again.
But this time things need to be different, this time Brock Lesnar needs to defend his WWE World Heavyweight Championship against The Viper, Randy Orton.
Orton did enjoy a good episode of Monday Night Raw, receiving massive heat from the Kansas City crowd every time he shot down the Royals’ fans hopes of winning the World Series.
Not only that, he stood tall – for most part of the night. He hit John Cena with the Attitude Adjustment in the go-home edition of Monday Night Raw but they big talking point should be the RKO he delivered on Paul Heyman, there is no way that RKO on Heyman will go unanswered or unpunished.
His night didn’t end well though, it was Seth Rollins standing tall on the cell after hitting Orton with the Curb Stomp.
The Beast vs. The Viper
We have seen enough encounter between John Cena and Brock Lesnar over the years, dating back to 2003 when he chased Lesnar’s WWE Championship before becoming the face of the WWE and defeating Brock Lesnar upon his return in 2012.
We all know what occurred at SummerSlam this year when Lesnar dismantled Cena before another clash between the pair the following pay-per-view at Night of Champions.
Let’s not even get into how many times Orton and Cena have faced off against one another.
But Randy Orton vs. Brock Lesnar would make for an interesting match. The two last faced off when Orton was still an up-and-comer and since then he has gone on to become one of the greatest WWE villains.
If the rumours surrounding an eventual face turn for Orton are true, then it could take place as soon as Survivor Series as the show emanates from Orton’s home town of St. Louis, Missouri.
If the two do clash – which I believe they should – then you cannot rule Randy Orton out. He is very dangerous, very unpredictable and with Seth Rollins looming over his shoulders at every step; a cash-in might not be far away either.
