We are approaching the end of the Legacy. It will all begin with Ted DiBiase's exit from the group. Ted DiBiase is a third-generation superstar. His dad is Ted DiBiase Sr. and his grandfather was Iron Mike DiBiase.
Ted DiBiase Jr. first joined sides with Cody Rhodes at Night Of Champions 2008. This is where Cody betrayed his old tag team partner, Hardcore Holly, to tag up with Ted and turn heel. After that, Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes went around Raw with the tag team name of Priceless.
Pretty soon enough they met a man named Randy Orton. At one point, Ted DiBiase was actually punted by Randy himself, but despite that, he still joined sides with the Legend Killer.
On an episode of Raw Manu and Sim Snuka were planning an attack on Randy for not letting them in to The Legacy. They also said they were bringing one more. That one more turned out to be Ted.
As the three approached the ring Cody slid out to be safe. As Randy stood alone ready to face off against three superstars Ted did the unthinkable. He attacked Snuka and Manu, not Randy. The three (Orton, DiBiase, and Rhodes) took them apart.
Later in a backstage segment, Orton said that both have proved themselves and would be a part of Legacy.
So the stable was born. Orton would travel around the main event while DiBiase and Rhodes would compete in the ace off in tag division. Over this time Randy Orton won the belt numerous times (WWE Title).
While Dibiase and Rhodes were not able to capture the tag team championships. However, DiBiase and Rhodes would always come in and help Orton retain his belt, time and time again. One match even had Brett DiBiase (Ted Jr.'s brother) getting involved. This would allow Orton to retain, but it had him being shown as a weak champion.
Recently while Orton was feuding with John Cena, Legacy was feuding with D-Generation X. Legacy had three meetings with DX.
The first one was at SummerSlam where they lost to Triple H and Shawn. The second was at Breaking Point in the first ever Submission Counts Anywhere Match. They were able to come up with the win there.
The third one was at Hell In A Cell where they lost to the Heart Break Kid and The Game.
Meanwhile, with Orton's feud with Cena he dropped the belt to him at Breaking Point, no shock there. However at the next PPV, Hell In A Cell he regained his title after a Punt to the skull of John.
Sadly the commentators touched on that Orton could not get the full power of the Punt of Cena because of a leg injury so Cena was not taken out of action.
The next and possibly final meeting of the feud shall take place at Bragging Rights where Orton will face John Cena in a 60 Minute Iron Man Match.
Right now it looks like this. It looks like Cena is going to lose to Randy Orton at Bragging Rights. The stipulations are if Cena loses he must leave Raw. So it looks like Cena will be going to SmackDown.
Now with Cena gone, that leaves Raw with a spot to be filled when it comes to faces in the main event. Who will be in that spot? Evan Bourne? Kofi Kingston? MVP? No, no, and no. It will be none other than Mr. Ted DiBiase himself.
By now we all know that DiBiase is going to have a face turn and this will be the time. Pretty soon Dibiase's new DVD shall be out in stores and to promote it he will be going face.
But screw the DVD, Dibiase is set to feud with his Legacy leader, Randy Orton. The question is, Is it to early to push him? I think no it isn't.
DiBiase has shown potential to stepping up and I think it will be a great experience for him. Plus we don't see the WWE pushing too many young guys anyway so this will be something refreshing.
The thing is that this totally reminds me of when Randy Orton exited Evolution. Orton won a battle royal for the right to face Chris Benoit for the World Heavyweight Championship at SummerSlam in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Eventually it ended with Orton hitting an RKO out of nowhere, pinning the champion and making history as the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in WWE history.
Now I do not believe that Ted will exit the same way by winning a battle royal and going on to face the champion (Randy), but I think it will be more like turning on Randy. He will either screw up one of his matches or maybe even surprise attack him backstage.
This third-generation superstar has a very bright future ahead of him, which may indeed include the WWE Championship around his waist very soon.
Orton has truly left a Legacy on World Wrestling Entertainment and now it just might be Ted's turn to do the same.
I'm just hoping this doesn't end in countless Orton/DiBiase feuds as we have Orton/Triple H feuds these days. Besides for that I am very excited for this upcoming feud. Aren't you?
