Would like to see Randy Orton involved in the WWE title scene in 2013.
Id like to keep references to his drug related suspensions to a minimum as we all know it happened, so there is no point covering old ground, although this is the only likely thing that will prevent this from happening.
I have never been a fan of Randy Orton, I found he got stale and borring and didn't like him for the same reasons I dont like Cena. The superman role that usually wins over everything.
But his demise has been vast and he has fallen greatly from were he was a few years ago.
But he has always managed to remain one of the most popular guys in WWE constantly getting big pops and I think he is wasted having mid card feuds on the B show Smackdown.
With Cena carrying the torch for so long it is refreshing that CM Punk has risen to the top of the WWE in a similar position, but I still think there is more room at the top. This is a time in Randy Ortons career when he should be facing Cena, Punk etc for the WWE Championship as well as facing the legends such as Brock Lesnar, HHH, The Rock, Stone Cold. And whether your a fan of him or not it would be great to see him nearer the top of the card rather than having so many feuds with the likes of Del Rio.
Mic skills have never been Ortons strong point but it would be great to see him have a meaningful feud, in something that closes RAW and possibly main events a PPV. I would love to see Randy Orton Vs CM Punk for the WWE title or Cena Vs Punk in a long feud - both these feuds been some big stipulations such as Iron Man Matches and I Quit Matches.
I get why they do it but I wish WWE would cash in more often and have some of there major talents face each other such as Cena, Orton, Sheamus, Punk. I get that who ever loses comes of weaker and that hurts them and the product. But this is the reason we watch Wrestling to see the highest calibre guys feud with each other.
Like I say im not a big fan of Orton, but I think he has spent a long time in the dog house and hopefully learnt his lesson. Keeping him in the mid card in my opinion is just wasting the opportunity to make money.
He has gone from 5 years ago been the hottest property in WWE to an irrelevant mid carder who nobody is interested in because he isn't feuding with anyone relevant.
I suspect he will be turning heel soon and that could be the biggest story of 2013, I also suspect as Orton turns heel Punk will turn face and that could be one of the best WWE title feuds of the recent age.
