Should Randy Orton be the next feud for The Rock?

With Randy Orton soon turning heel, the next fued for The Rock should be against (heel) Randy Orton, and it would be much better, if Orton used his Legend Killer gimmick again. Orton could say, he has pretty much beaten everybody that there is to beat, except for one, The Great One, The Rock.
(I know that Orton w/Evolution faced The Rock and Mick Foley at Wrestlemania 20, but that wasn't a singles match).

Re: Should Randy Orton be the next feud for The Rock?

I'd love to see Orton go one on one with the great one and check his big fat ass directly into the Smackdown hotel, but I think that the Rock should put someone over in his next feud. Perhaps Sheamus or Ryback. Imagine the name calling the Rock could pull on Sheamus LOL.

Re: Should Randy Orton be the next feud for The Rock?

I think a Rock/Orton feud could work somewhere down the line, as long as Orton is a heel and WWE makes some attempt to get him back into the position that he used to be in. Orton's stock took a huge dip in 2012. He's not at all what he used to be. He needs another run at the top and a couple more reigns as world champion before he's ready to be in a feud with Rock.

Re: Should Randy Orton be the next feud for The Rock?

It could potentially be a great feud. The 2 guys have history and they have beef but have never went one on one.

The problem is that Orton has been quite irrelevant for the last year and a half! So I think that basically Orton would have to be built back up again to the standard he once was (close second to cena) in order to get the best out of the feud. Unfortunately this could take a while to happen if ever!

Orton... irrelevant

Not winning the title and being called irrelevant are two different things. The fact is, the kids love Orton more, everybody loves Orton more. He even finished SmackDown off a couple times when he didn't have the title, he's more over than Sheamus, Ziggler, Del Rio. He doesn't need the title to be relevent.

Randy Orton is turning heel? I had no idea; probably because I can't see into the future like you OP.

He holds no titles, he isn't the face of either show, and he'll probably get injured or smoke a joint within a month. Though I like him as a wrestler (I put him over the Rock ability wise) he just wouldn't fit into a Rock storyline or get Vince the buy-rates he wants.

No. The guy can't cut a decent promo to save his life. He's on his last strike. And he's content to just tread along as a happy to get paid kind of guy.
