Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Randy Orton's best match against an inferior opponent ? Had a discussion with a friend earlier about the fact that all of Orton's greatest matches and real CLASSICS (vs Foley, vs Benoit, vs Christian, vs Hunter, vs Shawn, vs Taker) have come against better opponents than him, with his matches against lesser workers (I.E. BARRETT) coming up short in the ratings department.
Mere coincidence or a sign that Orton is overrated in the ring by many ? (FUCK, I knew my love for Randy would be tarnished someday) Thoughts ?
EDIT : In the middle of WRESTLEMANIA IV and I have already enjoyed a pair of matches in Steamboat/Valentine and especially Rude/JAKE. The crowd shits all over the latter and it features a ton of restholds for a 15 minute match, BUT THAT WAS THE FUCKING STORY THEY WERE GOING FOR YOU IDIOTS. Watching that match made me realize just how great of an in-ring psychologist Jake can be sometimes, damn. Could have been OMGAWESOME if they went for a DDT non-finish instead of what they did. I'm probably the only person on the planet who loves that match though.
JAKE. THE. SNAKE.
"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
