Backstage News On ‘Why Rusev Lost To Randy Orton In Just Nine Seconds At SummerSlam?’


Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

Rusev lost to Randy Orton in just nine seconds at WWE SummerSlam this past Sunday night. It continued Rusev’s losing pay-per-view streak since defeating Zack Ryder at WWE Battleground in July of 2016.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the quick loss was just a way to kick off their program. The idea is that the first match was a fluke, and Orton winning was due to him needing a victory after his recent lackluster PPV losses to Bray Wyatt and Jinder Mahal.
