Randy Orton wins WWE Championship at Hell in a Cell

Randy Orton is the new WWE Champion.

He won the WWE championship tonight at Hell in a Cell, defeating Drew McIntyre. The finish had McIntyre go for a second Claymore kick. When McIntyre went to execute, Orton countered with an RKO, pinning McIntyre for his 14th world championship.

This marks Randy Orton’s tenth WWE championship. He is also a four time World Heavyweight champion.

Drew McIntyre held the WWE championship for 214 days, pinning Brock Lesnar in the main event of the second night of WrestleMania 36.

This is the third time McIntyre and Orton have clashed in recent months. McIntyre won their first match at SummerSlam with a roll-up. The following month at Clash of Champions, McIntyre won an ambulance match with help from names Randy Orton had laid out in the months prior to the event -- Ric Flair, Christian, Big Show, and Shawn Michaels.

The following night on Raw, Randy Orton retaliated, laying everyone out with a steel chair attack, which set up tonight’s Hell in a Cell match.
