As they shouldn't, he hasn't earned it. He took a dump on the face of the best talent on the roster and said "fuck you, I don't have to do SHIT but show up and pin you after you carry the entire program". Disrespect begets disrespect. Undertaker is a selfish, arrogant, broken down old has been who can't give it up, who doesn't give one shit about the next generation of stars and helping the company that made him thrive. It's always all about him.
At some point Stephanie changed the rules and made everyone memorize lines off the script she wrote.
Promos used to be so much better when the talent could do it themselves, and Stephanie was nowhere to be found.
Fuck I wish more people would understand this, people who piss and moan about various talent being bland and uninteresting acting like it's the talents fault when they are given plates of shit to eat and spout back out on the mike.. When they ever even able to get their hands on a mike.
I am just so tired of seeing blame never getting placed where it belongs.
No single wrestler will lower or raise ratings. It's done. It's past that. The only thing that will grow this audience again is a top to bottom, fundamental change of the entire product. The look, the feel, the approach, everything.
Batista's bit is pretty funny but Jesus fucking Christ Orton is just painful beyond belief, could the man be any more bland?
When Orton didn't have his hands tied by this PG bullshit, when he was spitting in Foley's and Race's face, when he was kicking the snot out of HBK and HHH, Orton had teeth. That was when he was the legend killer though, long before he was being played out as a punk for the Salvation Army's champion.
Hell even after that he still had some bite. I just don't understand who he pissed off or how bad to deserve the treatment he's getting now.
