I think you're jumping the gun here. Orton hasn't won the match yet, and in the history of wrestlers putting their Wrestlemania title shot on the line in February pay-per-views, all of them ultimately went on to headline Wrestlemania regardless. Orton might lose to Rey at NWO, or win and then lose a rematch on the next Smackdown, or win at NWO and then get his comeuppance at a Angle/Orton/Rey three-way at Mania.
That's the other problem with making all of Rey's matches about honoring Eddie, though. We're guaranteed either a foregone conclusion (Rey has to win in the end because otherwise it would suck) or a colossal letdown (Rey fails to honor his dead friend). Neither outcome has me excited to see Rey's title chase unfold.

I am well aware that I've said many times nothing they do can surprise me b/c wrestling does have a history of going there. But apparently they CAN disgust me still.
Simulated corpse-fucking, Mark Henry saying he lost his virginity to his sister when he was 12, fake gay marriage for publicity, terrorists choking Undertaker with piano wire, Val Venis getting his penis chopped off, Big Show riding on his father's casket, Bossman being HANGED from a steel cage, and Hawk's drug problems turned into a storyline. Oh, and Orton blowing up Eddie's car with Undertaker inside a week after his death while the announcers screamed "He's KILLED the Undertaker!"
And now, less than 3 months after Eddie died, for real, Orton the "bad guy" says Eddie's in Hell to get boos.
Congratulations wrestling, you finally found a new low. I'm sure that you can tie bestiality into the Holocaust and Owen Hart somehow. Good Luck! You assholes.

Sadly I only tend to stop watching when it's REALLY not entertaining me. There's no line for them to cross with me, but even in an industry that excels at delivering the tasteless I'd say that the same promotion touting a man's redemption through Christ AND writing a promo declaring St. Pete didn't let him through is tasteless enough to stand out.
