Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Nope, it's the same for me too. Page is gone.
Orton vs Christian certainly was a highlight for Orton in 2011. It's why I decided not to crap much on his work that year. Feud sucked, but boy did all of their matches deliver. High energy and just so awesome. 2 PPV matches vs Punker I liked too. I'm one of the few who actually liked his match vs Miz @ Rumble 2011, Henry carried him to some good matches, & Orton vs Rhodes Street Fight from 11/4 owns. I do believe that's all he had going for him that year. Still, it blew away his 2012.
All I want is for him to actually have a personality again. I don't think a heel turn will magically do it. He needs to stop being awful first. Plain and simple. Cut the droll "I don't play well with others" crap and get back to being COCKY. I just watched Orton vs Mysterio from No Way Out 2006 yesterday. Loved it. It was great. You know why? b/c of Orton's swarmy, disrespectful character. It was wonderful. He has the capabilities of pulling that out. Only it's fallen away. Why? I'll never know. You got to chuckle when going face hurts him so much. It doesn't fit. Although, I'll gladly take outlandish happy face Orton circa 2004 - early 2005 over what we have now.
My body is sanctuary. My blood is pure.Breathe. Don't speak. It's leaving your body now.
