The Edge vs Randy Orton match was 36 minutes and 35 seconds long, which makes it the second-longest match in WrestleMania history. The duration of Edge vs Randy Orton is right behind the WrestleMania 12 title match between Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart, which was 61 minutes and 52 seconds long. However, Edge vs Randy Orton broke the record of the 'Triple H vs The Rock vs Big Show vs Mick Foley' WrestleMania 16 match which was 36 minutes and 24 seconds long.

Edge vs Randy Orton criticised

Edge vs Randy Orton was criticised for another major reason. During the match, Randy Orton was seen choking Edge with a weight cable. Many believe WWE was taking a shot at Chris Benoit who committed suicide while hanging himself with a weight cable after murdering his wife and younger son in rage in 2007. After the incident, WWE took Chris Benoit’s name out of their history. WWE even refused to induct Chris Benoit in WWE Hall of Fame.
