43. John Cena vs. Randy Orton vs. Triple H, WrestleMania XXIV
Location: Orlando, Fla.
Storyline: Former champions Triple H and John Cena had both returned from injury wanting to reclaim the title.
Winner: Orton via pinning Cena after HHH pedigree at 14:09
Fast action and cool spots such as Triple H and Randy Orton putting Cena in a Doomsday Device (the old Road Warriors finishing move), Orton's double DDT, and Triple H breaking out an Indian Deathlock—a submission hold not popular since the 1980's. (Even play-by-play man Jim Ross is shocked to see it!) Great booking here as the opportunistic Orton, an underdog champion, gets the surprise win over the more established stars.
