He's not hated because his angle and character are working.. He's bordering on X-Pac heat at this point.. They hate him because they're sick of seeing him and his same uninspiring routine he's been working for over 10 years and still being handed everything without earning any of it

Promo-wise, this is the best Orton has been in a long, long time. Possibly ever. His matches should be better considering he's wrestling Cena and Bryan PPV in and PPV out and these are two of the best workers in the company at the time but his tv performances have been excellent, consistently. He has my attention and interest. When's the last time I was interested in a heel champion this much? Maybe Punk when he beat Jeff Hardy, was as entertaining for me. Parts of his last reign too, but Orton's has been better than that so far.

Audience can sit on their hands for all I care. Orton is giving them chicken salad, if they're going to treat him like chickenshit, then there just ain't much else he can do. I'm enjoying myself, so no, it hasn't bombed.

I love how people use the booking defense, lot of the same people to love to shit on ADR because hes overpushed, Orton has a much better booking than ADR and a BIGGER push, both of them don't deserve their kayfabe accomplishments and Orton should of be depushed like ADR.

I wouldn't say it bombed necessarily because most of his segments have been pulling good numbers atleast he isn't breaking records like Punk`s dreadful reign

Orton is boring as a heel. (not that he's very entertaining as a face, but i prefer it)
most people wanted him to turn heel, expecting something great. yet they seem to have forgotten how people begged for face Orton for a very long time because he got extremely boring as a heel in the first place.

Thing about this forum is that if 'your' guy is failing and has become boring then it is creatives fault but when it is someone you don't like then it is the wrestlers fault. There is a lack of consistency on this forum.

I read the posts I'm this forum and do agree with quite a lot because Orton's reign has suffered partially because of booking but then you also have to put some of the blame in his shoulders also. The same way that Punk needed to take some of the blame when he started to get stale. I am the kind of fan that fluctuates when it comes to Orton, sometimes I think he's great and sometimes I think he is boring and doesn't deserve the push he gets. Fair enough he might be a generic heel but in 6 months of his title reign Orton has been given more opportunities than Punk did in a year and Orton is consistently main eventing and having a large percent of the show angled around him.

I don't want this to become a flaming in which Orton fans are incited by someone saying something bad against Orton. The comparisons to Punk are relevant because it is the most recent and longest title reign.

My point is that Orton is as much to blame as his booking.

Shits going to hit the fan.

Orton has been getting lukewarm reactions at best. He was fine as a face but this run has bombed. Hard to think this guy will be main eventing Mania.

I wouldn't say it bombed. He hasn't gotten booked as badly as you might think considering he beat cena clean. The feud with big show and the loss to kofi were the low points for me.

Have to agree with this 90%. Orton shows flashes a brilliance once in a while but nothing consist at enough to warrant the position he is constantly in. There was a point when he was the legend killer or a part of evolution when he was entertaining as fuck and one of the most exciting performers in wrestling history. It's this period that keeps his push going today, it's this period in which his hardcore fans became fans. Those days are long gone and they need to realise that his past achievements are not a free pass for his bland failings today.

Orton is given a free pass so much because of how entertaining he used to be. His current reign is bland and he has done very little and has been booked to have very little entertainer value.

I just get the impression that so many people don't give a shit whether Orton is champion or not and surely that diminishes all the hard work they have out in to bring prestige and entertainment back to the title.
