Summerslam liveblogging fourth installment

By Rick Morris

We have reached the main event. In a manner typical of the way that big-market crowds have reacted to John Cena over the past two years, much of the audience at the Meadowlands has actually cheered Randy Orton. The crowd has at times been split in its loyalties, with the idiotic dueling chants characteristic of the TNA Impact Zone in Orlando. Regardless, though, it's been a hot crowd for this match and it has helped to make this the best match of the night by far. In a mild surprise, Cena survives the RKO and delivers the FU to Orton for the win. He will mark an entire year as champion, absolutely unheard of in this era. At this point, Cena doesn't really have any strong heel challengers left and I'm not sure where they go with Orton at this point, so the booking decision was very interesting.

Also, Hulk Hogan's son Nick is in the hospital right now after a serious car crash in Florida. For all the opprobrium my fellow smart marks and I hang on Hogan for the politics he's perpetrated on this business, I wish all the best to the Hogan family in this difficult hour.
