9. Brock Lesnar busts Randy Orton open

Brock Lesnar’s path of destruction after his WWE return saw him break arms, break streaks, and end title reigns, but nothing was more visceral (and controversial) than the ending to Lesnar’s SummerSlam 2016 main event clash with Randy Orton.

The second-ever televised singles match between the two - and the first since 2002 - was presented against the backdrop of Lesnar’s UFC 200 return. Leading into the match the two played off of real-world events, with shots from Orton seeming almost real in intent.

After many German Suplexes and an F5, Orton kicked out, leading Lesnar to repeatedly elbow ‘The Viper’ in the head until he lay in a puddle of blood, getting the win by TKO as the crowd struggled to process what they had just witnessed. When Lesnar got to the back, a furious Chris Jericho squared up to him demanding to know if he went into business for himself, not sure if what he saw was real or not. This was a clear example of just how effective a wrestling “work” can be.
