The Kids From OVW That Changed WWE
WWE posted a new feature titled “The Kids From OVW That Changed WWE” dedicated to telling the story of four superstars who began their start in OVW back in the day only to come to WWE and leave their mark.
Randy Orton is with Brad Maddox in the back and Randy says that he is glad that Brad is back. Randy says that he is sorry he wasn’t too sympathetic about his previous injuries. Randy says that he wants Brad to tell the Authority that they need to recognize him as the greatest champion in the WWE History. His name is more recognizable than John Cena and he is bigger than the WWE itself.
It is time to see what the WWE Universe wants the winner of the match at TLC to be called. They want the person to be known as the Unified Champion.
Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, a principal owner of WWE, make their way to the ring down the ramp past chairs, ladders, and tables. Hunter says in two weeks at TLC, one of the most monumental matches in WWE has been scheduled. For the first time, the WWE Title and the World Title will be hanging above this ring. John Cena and Randy Orton will compete in a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs Match. The winner will walk out, not only as a Champion, but THE Champion. Stephanie says that there will be one unified undisputed champion. Stephanie says that they guarantee it.
She brings out Randy Orton first. He is followed by John Cena. Hunter thanks them for coming out to the ring. He tells them they can sit or stand. Stephanie says that she got the message that Randy is bigger than the WWE. Hunter says that Randy holds a title with a rich history. From Buddy Rodgers to Bruno Sammartino to Bob Backlund to Steve Austin to the Rock. Stephanie mentions that Triple H has held that title too.
John Cena is the World Champion. A title with a longer lineage. Going back to Gotch, Thesz, O’Connor, Harley Race, Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, Undertaker, Shawn Michaels. Stephanie mentions that Triple H held that title too. This match was not made based on the suggestion of John Cena, but before they could commit to the match, they had to know that both men could carry on as the face of the WWE.
Renee Young is in the ring and she brings out the WWE Champion Randy Orton.
Renee asks Randy about the controversy when Big Show knocked him out during Survivor Series, but by some measure of luck, The Authority came out and that allowed Orton to recover and win the match on Sunday.
Randy says that he begs to differ with Renee on a number of issues. Randy says that he was not knocked out, he has an iron jaw. Randy says that he was playing possum and that is strategy. He did not need Hunter and Stephanie for help. It may have tainted his victory.
Renee asks Randy about John Cena’s comments on Monday about the Tables, Ladders, and Chairs Match at TLC. She asks Randy how he felt after that. Did he feel betrayed, abandoned, or challenged? Did he feel threatened?
Randy does not say anything and he leaves the ring.
Randy Orton makes his way to the ring and we are told that we are going to get a three on two handicap match with the Wyatt Family facing Daniel Bryan and CM Punk.
Randy says that he thinks he is owed an apology. He is owed an apology from all of the cynics and doubters who thought for a moment that he would not appear tonight as the WWE Champion. The Authority says that they will join him at ringside.
Randy brings out Stephanie McMahon and Triple H.
Hunter congratulates Randy and says that they couldn’t be any more pleased with his victory from last night. When he hand picked Randy to be the future of the industry ten years ago, he know that Randy had the chance to be one of the greatest superstars in the WWE.
Stephanie says that they motivated him and laid the seeds of doubt. Randy reached down inside and he ended up victorious. It is also good when Triple H and she are proven right.
Randy says that Stephanie has made this all about themselves. Randy says that they would not interfere physically. He did not need them to prove that he was the face of the WWE.
Hunter said that there would be no physical interference and there was no physical interference. Randy might have a hard time remembering, but they came to ringside because it looked like there would be a new WWE Champion.
Randy says that he can take care of himself. He took everything that Show dished out, unlike someone he knows. He slayed the Giant because he is the face of the WWE. He is the greatest superstar in the 50 years that this company has been around. He is the greatest star of the WWE ever. No one can take that from him.
