#5: Randy Orton outsmarted Drew McIntyre on two separate occasions before their Ambulance Match at Clash of Champions
Keith Lee and Drew McIntyre were scheduled for a one-on-one match on this week's episode of WWE RAW. Lee and McIntyre's clash was a stellar one, to say the least.
Both men fought in a slugfest against each other, and fans would definitely love to see a rematch between them down the road. Their bout could have had a definitive finish if it wasn't for Randy Orton. Orton caused a disqualification by attacking the WWE Champion with a chair.
The Viper cut a sadistic promo on how he will decimate Drew McIntyre at Clash of Champions. Orton creatively used the ambulance as a plot device for his promo, which is something that should be taught in promo class at WWE's Performance Center.
Even at the end of the show where the entire RAW roster appeared to fight RETRIBUTION, Orton's selfish motives resurfaced as he delivered an RKO to Drew McIntyre inside the ring.
Character-wise, Randy Orton stole the spotlight from everyone on this week's WWE RAW. There is a good chance he could become the new WWE Champion at this Sunday's Clash of Champions event.
