He's putting stars over and has been doing it the past year or so. Something Cena hasn't done....in like forever. When Orton goes heel, he'll be back as the top man in the WWE.
Unless Punk and Cena retire he will never be the top man again.

Good, maybe we'll see what he really wants. He's in a position to fight up the card, or if he doesn't care and just stays in the midcard to put the new guys over. It could be worse, he could be in a comedy gimmick.
put the new guys over?the guy wins 99% of the time regardless of anything
Orton is above the midcard. He's BEATEN the midcard champs but shows no interest in going after their belts.
To be above the midcard you need to be featured above the midcard. Orton is not, he's stuck with having matches with the midcard guys without direction. The only recent chance he had to get into a more high profile feud was to be one of those going against The Shield, but it fell on Cena, Ryback and Sheamus.
Re: I never in my life expected randy orton in a midcard again
Vince saw Orton when Orton was about 22 and said...
"This is the guy I'm riding for the next 20 years. He's gonna make me a billion dollars."
WWE but the McMahons in particular saw Orton and thought "A level, top tier guy, maybe top guy in the company, for the next 20 years."
Did Vince, Steph and Shane force Orton to drink and smoke pot backstage? Get a shoulder or arm injury yearly? Develop a reputation as a petulant, arrogant, hostile and entitled co-worker? Or test positive for steroids twice? Did Vinny Mac force Mexican roid pills down his throat on tour?
Orton screwed Orton. If Vince had his druthers, what he really wanted all along from the beginning, Orton would be where Cena is now and Cena might not even be in the company anymore. Orton screwed Orton. He was handed this company for 20 years and he blew it.
