'The Viper' Randy Orton very popular

Monday Night Raw was nothing to write home about, which is why this report is short and sweet: The real excitement was the wrestling of Randy Orton.

The Viper was on his game in the main event match, a double tag team, with R. Truth, Evan Bourne, and Jon Morrison teaming up with Orton with the bad guys consisting of Ted Dibiase Jr., Chris Jericho, the Miz and Edge.

No doubt the headliners were Orton and Edge, the Rated-R Superstar. But these two didn't tango much with Orton finally stepping in and RKOing DiBiase to take the 1-2-3. The match was billed as a prelude to the upcoming pay-per-view Money in the Bank ladder match, which Orton showed he'd be the ultimate winner as he climbed the ladder Monday night.
