Prepare for the Rebirth of a Living Legend at Wrestlemania 25

The future of the WWE is no longer in question. Wrestlemania 25 will indeed become the day of destiny as the WWE's top star will ascend to the pinnacle of sports entertainment.

Whether you love him or hate him, no one will be able to do a single thing about it when Randy Orton reclaims his spot on top of the professional wrestling industry by becoming the new World Heavyweight Champion.

John Cena, you're now officially running on borrowed time.

The Champ's future victory in the Elimination Chamber match at No Way Out will only delay the inevitable. I've seen this situation before only this time, Randy Orton has become more vicious then ever.

I recall watching a hungry young Randy Orton take out top Superstars one by one in 2007 before John Cena's real-life pectoral injury forced him to vacate the WWE Championship, paving the way for Randy Orton to take his rightful place as the top man in the industry back in 2007.

When Randy Orton broke his collarbone in a Last Man Standing match with Triple H at One Night Stand earlier last year, the WWE would suffer the major loss of their top star as Raw continuously plunged into a pathetic state of mediocrity.

Since Orton's return, Raw has once again become the premiere television program in the WWE and a great deal of that can be attributed to Orton's ability to perform within the framework of multiple storylines and do so in excellent fashion.

After winning the Royal Rumble, Randy Orton is dead-set on once again becoming the top man in the industry. This will mean nothing but bad things for anyone who tries to stand in his way.

So Shane McMahon, you also are in way over your head.

In his No Holds Barred match with Orton, I'd love to see him attempt to go "Coast to Coast" on Randy Orton and break his tailbone in the process. Better that than having his neck snapped by the RKO then being punted out of relevance.

No Way Out will serve as nothing more then the postponement of the John Cena beat-down that will be on full display at Wrestlemania 25.

Tick tock, tick tock.

There is nothing in the wrestling world that is going to stop Randy Orton from achieving his destiny at Wrestlemania 25.

Whether you like it or not, everyone one of us will soon be forced to once again live in the Age of Orton.

And that, people, is not arrogance, it's destiny.
