Randy Orton vs Hulk Hogan (SummerSlam 2006) - **3/4
- Pretty average match. Hogan is on the offense far too much and works as the heel for no real reason with constant dirty tactics. He also looks like he can barely move which leads to Orton carrying the match despite selling for the majority of the 11 minutes it lasts. Crowd is well into the match since it's Hogan after all. After taking an RKO and getting his foot on the rope (a split second after the third count making Orton the technical winner!), Hogan hulks up and wins with his own variation of the "five moves of doom". I really don't understand why he needed to win this at all. But yeah, it just adds to Orton's legacy at only 32 as he has wrestled everyone there is to wrestle from the time he's been around except Stone Cold and he's done everything else that can be done in the business. And his haters still act like him being directionless in the past year means anything in comparison to his excellent run from 2003-2009.
