According to reports on EWN and Bleacher Report (among many other prowrestling news websites), Orton has expressed his desire to work as a heel for quite some time, but creatives are hesitating to give him the turn because they're afraid Sheamus alone cannot carry the Smackdown brand as a face. A recent article on Bleacher report says that Miz apparently wants to work as a face. So why not give both of them the turns they want. If Miz turned face and worked on Smackdown, and they used Ryback more properly and put him on Smackdown as well, I don't think they'll run short on babyfaces even if Orton turned heel. This way, both of the superstars would get what they want, we could finally see whether Miz can work well as a babyface or not, and Sheamus vs Randy Orton could finally happen.
