Vince McMahon loved the finish to the Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Orton match at SummerSlam. As we reported prior to the show, Vince and Triple H disagreed on who should go over.
Vince came up with the knockout as his way of protecting Orton and avoiding hainvg him get pinned. Vince is higher on Orton now than he has been in years, but never seriously considered putting him over, despite Hunter pushing for it.
Orton scored major points with Vince for taking those shots like a champ and not complaining at all afterwards. The finish even ended up working the locker room with Chris Jerichoconfronting Lesnar over it.
