Randy Orton beat John Cena to become the first WWE Heavyweight Championship at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs.
There was no swerve as Orton was able to grab both the World Heavyweight Championship belt and WWE Championship belt after he threw Cena off a ladder onto a table. Cena was handcuffed to the ring ropes but he actually disconnected them, allowing him to climb the ladder with the ropes still handcuffed to him.
After the match, Vince McMahon’s music played and he came out with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. Nothing was said as they stood behind Orton as the champion to end the pay-per-view.
