Christian def. Random Orton by Disqualification
Winner and NEW World Heavyweight Champion: Christian
CHICAGO – If at first you don’t succeed, hire a legal team … and fight dirty.
That’s exactly what Christian did to help him finally regain the World Heavyweight
Championship from Randy Orton.
During a tooth-and-nail battle that could have gone either way, Christian spit right
in the face of the champion. The dastardly deed caused Orton to snap and deliver a
blatant low blow to Christian. The move earned Orton an immediate disqualification.
And, as per the special match stipulation put in place by Christian’s legal team,
Orton lost his title.
Afterward, The Viper launched a brutal assault on the new champion, first smashing
him in the head with a TV monitor, then RKO-ing him onto the announce table.
But that wasn’t enough for the furious WWE Apex Predator. As he walked away from
the ring, he hesitated, then headed back to deliver one more vicious RKO to Christian
onto the announce table for good measure.
Christian’s victory in Chicago was the culmination of a long, twisted road.
Although Christian captured his first World Championship in his 17-year career at
Extreme Rules 2011, he lost it to Randy Orton just five days later. After that
heart-breaking night, he mounted a relentless quest to regain the title. But the
results were the same each time. At WWE Capitol Punishment and Over the Limit,
Christian failed to dethrone Orton.
How will the seething Viper respond to being spit in the face and having his title
taken from him all because of a contract clause? Can Christian hold onto the World
Title for more than five days this time? Find out the next edition of SmackDown on
