Destiny Fulfilled: Legend Killer’s Time Comes Again! October 8, 2007Posted by skribbel24 in WWE.
CHICAGO – History was truly made at No Mercy – over and over again. The WWE Title changed hands twice, and when the smoke cleared, Randy Orton was WWE Champion.
It was a roller coaster ride for both Orton and Triple H. Both experienced the ecstasy of holding the WWE Championship and agony of losing the gold. At the beginning of the night, Orton was in his glory when he was awarded the WWE Championship by Mr. McMahon. Triple H ruined it by challenging him and defeating him for the title.
The Legend Killer opted to immediately exercise his option as a former champion and have his rematch for the title that night. And Mr. McMahon, in his longtime hatred for Triple H, smiled with delight as he informed his former son-in-law that the rematch would be in a Last Man Standing Match.
Orton’s desperation showed in his match. Perspiration poured down his face as he rained blows down on The Game. He capitalized on the injuries Umaga had inflicted earlier that night and opened a gash in The Game’s head. Orton would not be denied in his second match, and outlasted The Game to win the WWE Championship after a thunderous RKO on the announcers’ table.
Orton breathed a long sigh of relief as he clutched the gold. He outsmarted The Cerebral Assassin, and the WWE Championship was his. Orton said his time has finally come.
