It was horrible. He was trying too hard, almost like he was mocking faces. I liked him then though (in ring), I didn't really start disliking Randy as a performer until 2009 when he transformed into "The viper" and the super pushes began.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

After 2005 i've only liked Orton again during his run with Edge, early 2009 and shortly after his face turn in 2010. I didn't like his rehash of the "legend killer" gimmick and his "age of orton" gimmick bored me to death.

Nowadays i think he's bland, don't enjoy his matches and unless we can go back in time to early 2009 i'm not looking forward to the potential heel turn.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Randall beat my hero Chris Benoit for the WHC in his home country back when I was young and "it was still real to me dammit", so I hated him from the get go.

Put's on entertaining matches, but that's about it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Orton was fucking awesome in 2006 on SmackDown. Then he was sent to Raw where he was saddled with Edge and made to be DX's bitch. Then he had a good 07 before randomly turning into a drone when winning the title. Seriously, it's like the moment he started cutting those 'I ended the CAREERZ of Shawn Michaels and RVD' promos is when he started losing his personality. That's also when Vince decided he'd be ready for the push he didn't get opposite HHH in 2005. In some of his promos in 2006 he's such a funny, energetic, cocky asshole that it looks like a completely different human being to 'I'm da viper guiz. APEX PREDATOR.'

I think he's always typically been a good worker. Well he's ranged between Very Good-Good-Passable, anyway. His 'HE'S GOING TO *THAT PLACE*' moments are sometimes eye-gouging, though, and I've seen matches where he needed to be pretty much completely carried. I remember the CM Punk match at WM27 being literally CM Punk working a good match on his own while Orton just played the Not Bad Foil.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I liked WrestleMania 27's match only b/c it was 99% Punk

Orton once rocked some quality face expressions. I know it sounds impossible, but I'm telling you, he did.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Orton's character could be a lot better if he started having conversations with the voices in his head.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Can't happen. WWE will be accused of ripping off TNA again b/c Jeff Hardy has his INNER THOUGHTS already.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

We wouldn't have to hear the voices, just Orton's response to them .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Then they would be ripping off a Chikara gimmick from the first 6 months of the year. I call shenanigans x2.

On the other hand, droll Orton conversations talking to himself though does have QUITE an appeal.
