Wrestlemania XXV

Randy Orton Cements His Legacy at The Expense of Shane McMahon

Ryan MichaelSenior Writer IIIFebruary 16, 2009

Could there have been any doubt? As hard as Shane McMahon tried, his 15 minutes of fame ended with a vicious RKO.

Personally, I wouldn't have had it any other way. The destruction of the prodigal son brought a just end to the McMahon's pathetic attempts to delay the inevitable.

Will Randy Orton be able to make it to Wrestlemania XXV?

Of course he will, only this time he will be stronger then ever.

Shane McMahon's wrecked body was just another mark on Randy Orton's laundry list of accomplishments. I'm not as impressed by the pile of unconscious Superstars he has left in his path as much as I am with the overall brilliance of the Randy Orton character.

His premature guarantee of victory was vintage Randy Orton. Expect the same man to walk into Wrestlemania as the best in the business and walk out as living legend.

Whether it's John Cena or Triple H, it makes no difference.

This year, a champion is falling to a heel and everyone will soon learn to pay respect to the crown jewel of World Wrestling Entertainment.

Congratulations Randy Orton, you beat up a man who never stood a chance.
