Last week, Randy Orton found himself unable to explain his shocking attack on Edge. This week, Matt Hardy tried to force Orton into revealing, as he said, “What in the hell is wrong with you?” But rather than help prod The Apex Predator into the confession the WWE Universe wanted, Hardy instead wandered into the same fate as The Rated-R Superstar.
Orton only got one sentence out — that what happened hurt him more than it hurt Edge — before Hardy arrived, demanding answers for the man with whom he made history and went through hell, as both hungry up-and-comers and bitter rivals. In response, Orton dropped Hardy with an RKO after a brief scrap and administered a one man Con-Chair-To to the former Raw Tag Team Champion in an echo of his attack on Edge. At least this time we know why Orton struck, though that’s likely to be cold comfort to the WWE Universe as more trailblazers fall at his feet.
