Randy Orton Wins WWE World Heavyweight Championship

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.

    crap finish to a crap ppv…and the crowd goes mild…

    • Justin Lal

      Speaking of the crowd they were very much into the main event. No DB chant during the main event by the way.

      • Radical Rex

        Does it really matter if there was a DB chant or not? Seemed like a pointless addition to your comment.

        • ShockMaster

          Radical Rex? More like Douchebag Rex. He was just stating a fact about the DB chants…..loser.

        • Justin Lal

          The reason I bring it up is b/c last week people were saying that WWE needs to listen to the fans b/c they were chanting DB’s name during the main event segment. Well tonight that main event happened and there were no DB chants. At Survivor Series they were chanting DB’s name, but tonight it didn’t happen. My point is that if DB’s name was chanted at every main event he’s not in then WWE would have to seriously address putting him back in the main event. But tonight it didn’t happen. So…

          • Simon Veitch

            I guess the main difference between tonights main event and Raw’s main event is that Daniel Bryan was out there in front of people and being chanted for, where tonight he wasn’t. Also the fact that Raw was pretty much his home town. But beside’s that the crowd did seem a little bored and out of it for the most part tonight, up until the main event anyway.

          • Tuma

            Did you watch the ending to smack down? Bryan was not even out there and the crowd still chanted his name.

      • Bob’s Diner

        Very much? I don’t know about that – they seemed much more into the undercard. They didn’t really seem to care who was going to win the main event at all, due to the mixed reactions both men got. Pretty sure there was only one ‘Let’s go Cena’ chant in the whole match

  • Noelz

    Did the ending seem awkward to anyone else…I think cena was suppose to go through the table and hit it wrong and was legit ko’d…I think that’s why randy kept looking and was taking so long to grab the belts cause he was trying to give cena time to recover…idk…maybe it’s just me…but the ending seemed off

    • Chris

      The ladder started to tip as Cena pushed off to jump to the table, so he shorted it.

  • craig strachan

    no big surprise on this outcome,just 1 question for orton,how does it fell knowing that you got another championship handed to you on a silver platter, lord knows that you can’t win 1 on talent alone,i’m no cena fan but at least he’s earned his credibility by hard work and dedication unlike orton who has his lips so far up triple h’s backside he can taste his breakfast.

    • Bob’s Diner

      They both suck up. Didn’t you hear Cena telling Orton the other week he was handpicked by one of the greatest champions of all time?

    • Emanbears23

      Are you talking storyline or real life? Either way you are wrong. “real life” Orton has tons of wrestling talent. He is a great in ring performer. “storyline” Orton won the belt fair and square. There was no silver plattering going on this time.

  • EvilMenace666

    What a Crock of shit Pay Per View….My man Cena shoulda won! What are ya Thinkin Vinney?Randy Orton the man that will lead this company into the new millennium?????

    • Mysterion

      It’s still real to me dammit!!!!

      In all seriousness, Cena is probably not “your man”. He probably has no idea you exist.

    • Chris

      New Millenium….?

    • Tuma


  • Bob’s Diner

    Am I the only person that spent the entire PPV getting frustrated with WWE re-writing history all night?

    Firstly, the ‘World Heavyweight Champioinship’ is NOT the original NWA or WCW titles. That was incorporated into the WWE title back in 2002 when HHH stopped the 2 belt thing and went to one and I don’t remember Brock Lesnar ever vacating that particular title. I will put it to you like this: I have a chair and Luke has a chair. Luke takes my chair and makes them both into one awesome chair. Then a year later, I decide I want a chair, too, so I bring in another chair. It looks exactly the same but it is not the same chair as the one Luke took from me – that chair is gone.

    Secondly, Chris Jericho won both titles in 2001 – and that was when it was actually the WCW World Heavyweight title, not just some made up title given to HHH because he needed some gold to feel relevent. For the commentators to spend all night saying no one in the history of pro-wrestling had ever had this chance, or that this was a match 50 years in the making is complete BS on every level

    Thirdly, first ever WWE World Heavyweight Champion??? Strange, because on every DVD release I ever see they call the WWF of the 80’s and 90’s the WWE – so that would make the original title the WWE World Heavyweight title, since up until 1998 it was called the WWF World Heavyweight title. What are they going to do, go back and edit all the old introductions to call Hulk Hogan the WWE Champion instead of the WW- World Heavyweight Champion?

    BTW, the funniest part of it all is that if you are going to consider the NWA title from the 80’s to be the same as the WCW title from the 90’s, and then claim they can be traced right back to 1908 or whatever year it is they claim, then the WWE title can also make that claim since it was born out of the NWA title as well. The only title that doesn’t have that claim is the World Heavyweight title, since it just magically appeared in 2002.

    Oh and whoever feeds Michael Cole his ‘facts’ should hire a fact-finder so he can stop saying the wrong things. The first TLC match was at WrestleMania 2000 – not SummerSlam, you morons.

    Hilariously frustrating!!!

    • Chris

      The WM2000 match was actually a Triple Threat Tag Team Ladder Match. The Dudleys were there, so tables came in to play, but it was officially a Ladder Match. The first real TLC match was Summerslam.

      • Mysterion

        Beat me to the punch there. And it’s funny, because him making that single historical mistake makes me think his whole post was wrong. 🙂

        • Bob’s Diner

          Well I don’t get paid to talk about WWE 😉

          • Chris

            But do call people morons before checking your facts…

          • Bob’s Diner

            That was only one example of Michael Cole saying something that wasn’t true that evening. He even said Edge had more title reigns than Randy Orton.

            He gets paid a lot of money to be ‘the voice of WWE’ and say these things. Someone else gets paid lots of money to give him these ‘facts’ to speak. Neither do a good job because this sort of thing happens a lot.

            I however get paid nothing to discuss WWE so I couldn’t care less if I make an occasional mistake. My reaction when I read that I was wrong was to go “Far out – totally didn’t know that!”

          • Chris

            But do call people morons before checking your facts…

    • JR Texx (Jamie)

      I liked CM Punk V The Shield, but I felt that fell a bit flat compared to what it could have been. The rest of the matches I wasn’t into at all. Big disappointment.

  • JR Texx (Jamie)

    Well that was very disappointing. I think the crowd thought the same for the entire Unification match.

    • JonnyVC

      I thought it was great, last thing i expected was a clean finish and that’s what we got! Honestly how many people seen randy going over clean and there actually being a unification? Let’s be honest whatever happened in that match the majority were going to slag it off. Credit where credit is due i think they delivered!

  • It was an okay match with a disappointing finish. Handcuffs always ruin a match for me. Also, why did they build up the Authority being there all night long with the Boss only for them to do nothing?

  • Smarky Smark

    I miss the attitude era
