The main event of Summerslam saw a dominant performance by Brock Lesnar who delivered a vicious attack to Randy Orton leaving him in a spill of blood in the middle of the ring. Orton was literally unconscious when the match was called off and Lesnar was declared the winner via TKO.
Lesnar even did not spare Smackdown Live commissioner Shane McMahon and delivered an F-5, as well to him. Fans were not pleased with the dominant booking of the beast incarnate. They literally wanted to see a triumphant return from Goldberg in the second biggest PPV of the year but did not get it.
Even the backstage officials and WWE’s creative heads were not happy with the outcome. It was speculated that WWE may have a suspension has in store for the outrageous attack. Stephanie McMahon has already sued the beast with a penalty of $500 but it seems that it is only for storyline purpose with an online picture brought into notice by the infamous Undertaker guy from Wrestlemania 30.
Ellis Mbeh, the shocking face from the day when the Undertaker’s streak was conquered, was able to take a picture of Randy Orton post-Summerslam. Randy Orton is seen smiling in the picture with his bruised face after he recovered from the beast’s beat-down.

Randy Orton got busted open with Lesnar’s elbow right into Orton’s head. He had received 10 stitches in his head after the match. The actions looked like completely out of the script, since Lesnar has shown his vulgar MMA-mode.
However, the above picture suggests that the finishing was scripted. Cagesideseats.com also reports that the beat-down was pre-planned for a good measure. Orton knew that he has to suffer the beatings at the hands of Lesnar. Brock Lesnar was accused of going off-script during WWE TV tapings many times in the past, as well.
