I can't believe what I have just witnessed. The WWE and Triple H McMahon have robbed me again. What was supposed to be the most anticipated Wrestlemania main event in years turned into one of the worst matches in Wrestlemania history.

With the stipulation that Triple H could lose the title if he was DQed, I knew from the beginning something was up. Sure enough, the match started, and Haitch was all over Orton. Finally the two of them hit their finishers within 45 seconds of each other. WTF?

But that was just the beginning. We were then treated to the famous Orton chinlock, a Charlie Brown- like punt by Triple H, a sledge hammer shot, and then came the biggest let down of all.........a Triple H victory.

Triple H once again proved that his greed went above everything else, and as a result Wrestlemania 25 will go down as one of the biggest disappointments in history.

There was no reason for Triple H to win this match. Orton is supposed to be the next big thing, and this was his moment. Once again it was destroyed by Triple H. Orton is also the first man in history to win the Royal Rumble and then lose at Wrestlemania (the Rock was in a fatal-four way so i give him more credit).

All I can say is: WWE you better have something up your sleeve mighty fast or you have just punted your future fans in the face.
