    Why Did Randy Orton Retain the WWE Title at WrestleMania 24?

    - WWE had Randy Orton retain his WWE Title at WrestleMania 24 because they didn't want all four of the main event matches to come off as predictable. The internal feeling was that most people predicted the finishes for the top four matches, and they wanted to swerve the fans with at least one of them.

    They weren't going to change the Flair-Michaels finish as Flair was set to retire and Mayweather vs. Show was off limits, obviously because Mayweather's celebrity status.. The Undertaker vs. Edge pretty much goes without saying because of Taker's streak, o that pretty much left the three-way WWE Title match open to other finishes.

    WWE felt like the original plan of Triple H winning the WWE Title came off as too predictable, and with John Cena missing house shows for a few months due to 12 Rounds filming, the majority of people within WWE believed that Orton was better off staying WWE Champion.

    I was thinking more to add credibility to Orton as champion. In the main event match at Wm he seemed to be overshadowed by both Cena and Triple H. I figured WWE is having him win so that the fans feel he is on the same level as the rest of the main eventing wrestlers, not just another swerve before they hand the title to someone we've already seen as champion over and over.

    If it is about building a guy up. Fine

    If it s about making it less predictable, that is stupid. Mania is the one event where it can be predictable.

    I know many people (including PY) who didn't buy it because of its predictability.

    I agree the decision anyway. It made the show better and made Orton look better.
