For heel performances, HHH is just so good at it. He always gets fans to root for the babyface even if it's against Maven who comes out to silence every week. I'm almost at TT05 but wont watch it now because I want it saved for when it's time for the PPV. I have to go with Eugene by default.
Randy Orton vs Rey Mysterio (Smackdown 01-09-2005)
Wow, these two just do it every single time. Almost as much chemistry as Orton has with Benoit. Orton is just so perfect
as the dickhead heel. His facial expressions, his trash talking and use of heelish tactics are in great display in here. Another well paced match with Orton dominating with heelish offense. I loved some of the stuff he did such as removing his kneepad for the Jumping Knee Drop on Rey's chest or when he slaps Rey across the head with some funny one-liners. And his smirk when doing that Legend Killer pose.... ha, he's just a natural born heel (even though I root for him every time
). Rey working as the underdog never fails and he builds up momentum much to the crowd's delight towards the end and starts to look like he has this on lock until Bob Orton holds onto his leg when he's about to West Coast Pop, causing a distraction which Orton utilizes to give Rey a BRUTAL lowblow followed by the first ever Super RKO from the top rope! Great match with a great ending. ***3/4
