The wait is over. The anticipation has reached a fever pitch and Shane McMahon is officially running on borrowed time as his fans need to prepare themselves for his funeral and fans of the Legend Killer can be prepared to rejoice.
Either way, Randy Orton will end up on top.
Think to yourselves for a moment about the kind of match that McMahon has gotten himself into. He's about to go toe to toe with the most dangerous man in the history of the WWE. That's right, I said it. Orton is the most dangerous man in the history of the WWE.
Enter McMahon—an old washed up shell of his former self. Although I have plenty of respect for the insane things he has managed to due in the line of performance over the years, going one on one with the Royal Rumble winner is not something that will suit him well.
The WWE would be ill-advised to try to shock the fans by letting McMahon win. Such an unrealistic set of events would kill the credibility they have managed to established building up towards WrestleMania.
The one and only time they failed to sell and angle involving Orton as of late was when they allowed McMahon to attempt to beat up the Legend Killer. McMahon did such a horrible job that they had to clean up the events by having Orton say he refused to fight back.
Facts are that Orton should not go down unless he's hit in the back of the head with a shovel. The realistic route to go would be to have Orton wipe the floor with the prodigal son and continue to build up his momentum heading into WrestleMania.
The countdown is on. Tick tock, tick tock.
Will the WWE do the right thing and give us a realistic dose of McMahon beat-down or will they destroy all they have worked for by having him finish on top?
