Age of Orton is Back!

On April 26th, 2009 at the WWE backlash pay per view, Randy Orton made history by capturing the WWE championship in a six man tag match. Your probably wondering how he won the championship in a 6 man tag match right? Well Randy Orton, Ted DiBiase, and Cody Rhodes also known as The Legacy faced off against Triple H, Batista and Shane McMahon. In this match anyone can be pinned, for example if Ted DiBiase pinned Shane McMahon, Randy Orton would have won the WWE championship. On the other hand if Batista were to pin Cody Rhodes then Triple H retains his belt. The title can also change hands in a result of a disqualification or count out.

Triple H had Orton set up in his finishing move the pedigree. But then he saw Batista about to bash Cody Rhodes in the head in with a steel chair. Remember Triple H can lose the title if Batista or Shane gets disqualified. After seeing that Triple H went over to stop Batista, Triple H took the chair from him; after he took it Ted DiBiase attacked Batista. While Shane was out after a chair shot from Rhodes which the referee did not see. As Triple H turned around Orton hit the RKO followed by a punt kick. Orton went for the cover and got the win therefore becoming new WWE champion. This is Randy Orton’s second time as WWE champion. We all thought that the Age of Orton was over at WresteMania 25 because of his loss, But Orton managed to take out the McMahon family out of commission, so I guess the Age of Orton has just begun.
