It's Batista.

In mid-2005 and early 2006, he was almost even with Cena.

Orton has not yet reached that level, and he may never do so.

It's surprising though. In 2003, I never thought Batista was going to be a star; all my attention was on Orton.

Batista, even though he would have been bigger as a heel.

By far, Batista.

Orton, last year, was the most popular he's ever been, and he did nothing for business.

Batista brought a 40% increase to Raw revenue as soon as he won the Royal Rumble in 2005 and WWE hasn't looked back since. Actually, if you look at the numbers, he was the biggest star the company had until mid-2006, even while on Smackdown for most of that duration. I won't go into the success he brought Smackdown as a brand and the fact that he was the biggest international star WWE had until 2008.

Orton isn't in Batista's league when it comes to starpower.

The only thing he has going for him is the advantage that Batista decided to leave when he could have headlined for another two years and cemented his legacy further. That, and Orton still has around 10 years to add to his legacy. But even with that, his highest high will never reach Batista's. That much I guarantee you.

Batista is, was and always will be the bigger star.

back in 2005 Batista was the biggest star in WWE yes even bigger than Cena. Batista was the #2 face in the company for years behind Cena. Orton wishes he was at the level Batsita was at during his run. The Batista heel run of 09-10 was better than the Orton heel run of 09 also.

Batista is a much bigger star then Randy Orton will ever be and there is no other answer-period. Batista was given the ball and never looked back as he launched himself to ultimate stardom while Orton fumble the ball when the spotlight kept shining on him until 2008 came. Funny how things changed cause WWE was grooming Orton to be their next big star in Evolution while Batista was just the silent enforcer in the background.

Hell, WWE pretty much told fans that Batista is way bigger then Orton with Batista squashing him in most of their single matches and Orton never really manage to defeat big Dave whether interference came into play or not. Even as a Heel Batista still was going over Orton-if anything Orton was Batista’s little bitch that he smacked around for years.

If Batista returned tomorrow, Orton will be mid-carding like he was in early 2010 all over again and Batista will still be leagues ahead of him.

Still to this day, the Rise of Batista is still better then anything Orton has ever done in the main event scene.

I say Orton. Batista's height of popularity was during his feud with Trips and once he went to Smackdown away from his buddy his popularity faded quite a bit. When he was put back on Raw and feuded with Cena his popularity rose because it was entertaining.

But Orton. He has clawed and scratched his way to the top. They booked him hard to be a heel and the fans fought that every step of the way. We made him a tweener. That never happened with Batista.
