Randy Orton revealed that their match at One Night Stand ECW is his favourite. Not only did he enjoy being in the ring with Kurt Angle but also enjoyed the energy and vibe coming from the fans.

“I think it was the one where the fans had the infamous sign. You know, Cena wins, we riot. I do get the name of that pay-per-view but it was an ECW pay-per-view, I remember I had just come back from suspension and I was little worried about my conditioning because I was doing in the ring with Kurt Angle. I remember that crowd being crazy and having a good time. Having fun with the crowd. They were riled up to say the least. That always makes for a good atmosphere.”
