Randy orton too big for his boots?

Rate this Entry
This is my first blog so if i make mistakes (which is very likely) dont be too hard on me. I am not a hater of randy or a fan in fact im not really affected by him either way be it face or heel which is a poor reflection on the guy as the one thing a 'superstar'should strive towards is a reaction be it negative or positive such as john cena...he gets both at the same time funnily enough, zack ryder then is a better example of a guy who went out and created his own reaction when wwe wouldnt push him.

the thing is with randy orton is that he never wanted to be a wwe 'superstar' (wrestler is a dirty word now) he admits himself that he got into it because of his father being able to get his foot in the door of the wwe after a bad spell he had with the marine corps. im not sure on this but apparantly he went awol etc someone with info on this would be better placed to elaborate on this. so he turned to wwe as a second choice and there is nothing wrong with that after all some of the greatest have done the same such as Goldberg after a football career cut short, the rock after his time with the miami hurricanes and numerous others for whom wwe was not there first calling. so heres my point the good and bad of randy orton weighed against the actions of the guy as a person and the question of him being too big for his boots for the level of success he has.

the good of orton is he is a great heel when he puts the effort in, his legend killer run was great and interesting and had legs as wwe were bringing back legends to be fed to him, which allowed us to also see some of our favourites again and hate him for beating em up, his run with evolution was good also, however his most effective heel run was when he went against hhh at wm25. he was punting vkm beatn up all the mcmahons including steph, just good work overall as you really wanted him to get his ass kicked.

as a face orton to me and maybe its just me but i believe im not alone here has always made me cringe, the man has no connection with the crowd you dont really cheer for him in the same way as you would a proper face because he doesnt fit as a face, hes too robotic with no emotion, which suits a badass heel of i dont care have no remorse kinda thing but the audience cant connect with a face whom they believe doesnt give a shit what he does. some of ortons best work has been with christian but i believe that is down to the better work of captain carisma, with better promo's than orton, and the better in ring performance,

the behaviour of orton is something that i believe is what stops him from getting over in a meaningful way by that i meant that if he didnt have the machince of wwe pushing him the audince wouldnt give a damn about him, ok maybe in the sense that oh its cowboy bob ortons son let see how this goes. the man is known too have done drugs which is what kept him from rising in his early career, not judging the man for that being offended by drugs in wrestling is like writing a letter of complaint because csi had a murder in the episode, but the maturity of a man who is also known too have pissed in the bags of the diva's (confirmed by torrie wilson) is questionable. the man recently was rude to reporters at an airport when asked about chris jericho and shane helms being arrested. nothing wrong with that until he learned they were from tmz and would therefore mainstream media coverage and not just locals or iwc and he changed his tune he was sweetness and light 'you guys take care' was how he ended the interview.

quite recently he gave a radio interview in which he refered to the rock as trying to get him in trouble with vkm, maybe this is true, however to do the childish thing of john cena's better than the rock anyway is bs, he said he didnt buy it when the rock said hed never leave OMG cause everyone of us did, we just enjoyed the rock when he was there and glad we knew he would be back at intervals for wm28, if he was at every raw orton and the others who trash him for leaving would say hes taking their air time etc as they do over wm28, John cena better mic skills than the rock really? really? really? he must still be on drugs if he thinks that, maybe he does have better mic skills but weve never seen em, he then went on to say kelly kelly has 'Method acted' aka boom chicka wha wha(mature ino) with at least 10 other wrestlers, so what those lucky sob's id give my left nut for that, he said the 2 actresses who played his wife were awful and reiterated it several times, so what their roles were to scream at hhh or punk the wwe isnt going to hire jessica alba for that.he mentioned his concusion again well done to wrestle with one but hhh wrestled with a torn quad, miz at wm with the same, stone cold broke his neck, mick foley got up and finished the most awesome hiac match ever, but i keep hearing about randys concussion. the guy is an asshole in my opinion but that does not detract from his ability i just wish he would focus more on improving his matches and promo's and realise his potential rather than gettin himself ino awkward situations

anyway leave your comments negative or positive or mixed, what do ye think has he gotten too big for his boots or have i been too hard on the guy??

    Although I'm more a fan of Orton when he's heel and untouchable, the guy is great at what he does in the ring. He's "good" on the mic as well. There are plenty of people who are good wrestlers and SUCK on the mic..ehem..Kofi/Morrison/Ziggler/Big Show/Everyone who's ever been aligned with Nexus except Punk and Barret/ you get the idea. In comparison to their mic work, Orton is a god on the mic. Who's better than Orton? Cena/Miz/Punk/Taker to name a few. In the business, alot of guys are better. Point being, target someone else for elimination. Start with Kofi, that guy should be embarrassed that he has that much talent in the ring and he's failed to grasp the point of promoting yourself when you're holding a mic. seriously dude...horrible...

    How you reflect yourself out of wrestling could also reflect yourself in wrestling. Orton is a piece of crap for throwing everybody under the bus in his interview. At the end of the day he has to work with these people 300 days a year. Orton calling the kettle black, didn't he get Ken Anderson fired in WWE or stopped Kofi Kingston push because he botched a move or something like that? Not to mentioned he ratted out WWE for letting him wrestle Christian with a concussion.

    Sorry but I think you have got this all wrong. Orton is still a heel! thats why his perona has'nt changed. Either he or wwe need to make the dicision to make him a full baby face or keep him as he is. He has just got very popular but whats wrong with that? To be a popular heel is so hard to do and he is awesome at it. Whomever said a heel can't be a fan favorite remember a guy called "Stone cold Steve Austin"

    What most people in this site don't understand is that Orton is not a normal face, he's an anti-hero I fear some of you will never understand that. Yes I am an Orton mark but I have followed the guy's career from beginning to end and I have enjoyed every minute of it. You guys complain how everyone's character is the same, yet when WWE tries to do something you complain, I'm jus sayin...

    orton was awesome in 09 with legacy, he has not been able to repeat that run since

    What is it with the Kofi Kingston defense on this one??? Seriously, I have seen the man with a microphone! WWE has let him speak, a few times... He has yet to make anything he did exciting outside the ring. You got to have both in wrestling, can't just be good in the ring. The alternative would be 20 Big Shows fighting 20 Santinos... UGH!!! Orton is good at both ring work and mic work, that's why he's a top superstar. And he got lucky with music and t-shirts.
