Legend Killer looks to add to his list
Tonight at the Hammerstein Ballroom, the intense rivalry between ECW’s Kurt Angle and RAW’s Randy Orton will reach its boiling point. Two months ago, Kurt Angle broke Orton’s ankle during the opening round of the King of the Ring Tournament. The injury forced the young “Legend Killer” out of action to allow his injury time to heal, but now that he’s back, Orton has revenge on the mind. WWE.com caught up with Orton earlier today to get his thoughts on meeting the Wrestling Machine tonight at One Night Stand.
A focused Orton is clearly still upset over Angle’s actions at the King of the Ring. “I’m a man of my word. If I’m going to face someone in the ring, I’m going to do it the right way. I’m not going to do anything dirty or underhanded. Kurt Angle may be an Olympic hero and all that, but that day in the ring, he proved that he was not a man of his word, he didn’t fight fair. You don’t take pleasure in hurting another man.”
On Wednesday night at Head to Head, Angle warned Orton that at One Night Stand, he was coming for more than just his ankle. “This Sunday night, not only am I gonna break your ankle, I’m gonna break your arms and I’m gonna break your legs. In fact, when I’m done with you, you’ll be crawling out of the Hammerstein Ballroom with a broken freakin’ neck.”
With Angle being labeled as the new face of ECW, Orton sees the contest as more than just himself vs. Kurt. “Everyone is saying that Kurt Angle is going to be the new face of ECW, that’s he’s going to be the No. 1 guy. I believe it. Actually, I’m counting on it. Because tonight, I have the opportunity to take out Kurt Angle, and at the same time, kill the legend of ECW.”
The Legend Killer will get his opportunity tonight for revenge that is two months in the making. What will happen when the Legend Killer enters the raucous environment at the Hammerstein Ballroom? It all happens tonight, and the only way to see the extreme action is by ordering the event on pay-per-view.
