Oh I totally understand that. But nobody
thought Orton was walking out with the strap. I think there was a poll result shown just before the match, and about 48% was for Cena, with another 48% for HHH. Which leaves 4% for Orton. I think this came about because most people thought the triple threat was the main event, thus believing a babyface was going to win.
Obviously a load of kids probably voted for their favourites, but still that's a huge difference.
