Randy Orton vs. Kane wasn't really every one's first choice of match for the WrestleMania card. It seemed like it would have been suited better as a main event on an episode of Raw or maybe even Smackdown but somehow it found its way to the granddaddy of them all. A lot of marks really didn't see the point of this match as it seemed predictable and pointless with little to no build up, though not me.
Orton's entrance and the inevitable strike of the RKO always garners a guaranteed pop from a crowd. I saw this match simply as an excuse to include both of these early in the card to get everybody going. However when Kane hit the chokeslam of the top rope everything came crashing down. No one for a second thought he was ever going to come out of this with a win, let alone a clean one.
Randy now looks very weak. Sure he has been doing the right thing by putting over the young talent whilst still looking strong but this was a step too far. Kane is long past his best and is used as a stepping stone for talent anyway, so what is the point of having him beat one of the best faces in the WWE?
I honestly have no idea what the WWE was thinking? Unless they have an ingenious plan for somewhere this feud could go, Orton is in some serious trouble.
