And they certainly don't need a reign like Punk's going on, nobody on SmackDown is at that level. Orton has peaked, building him up at this point is a time waster that gives you no results.
Yes they need to build up new stars, but just because Orton is old doesn't mean he should never get a title run again, his face run is way past it and he needs to turn heel, they can't simply 'not use' him. They could really use him as a heel, it would help Smackdown and at the end of it whoever beats him will be 'put over' by Orton.
