Orton's still number 3 in the fans eyes no matter how hard they push Fella.

Re: Will Orton regain his place in the company?

If he turns heel, he'll be the #2 heel in the company. Orton/Punk joining forces and taking over would be awesome. Imagine Punk and Orton vs Cena and Rock?

If Orton is given half the push Punk is given,Randy would be more over than Punk with the casuals.Not sure about the IWC though

Re: Will Orton regain his place in the company?

No, and it's likely he'll slowly but surely keep falling in placement. He reached #2 in 2010 because a bunch of guys either retired, quit or became part-timers.

CM Punk has already overtaken that spot, and at this point it's fair to consider Sheamus as the #3 guy via booking and prominence. Granted, Orton is still more over than Sheamus but Sheamus has definitely taken precedence over Orton in WWE's booking in the last year or so.

With two Wellness strikes and a few different guys steadily rising up the ranks of the main event level at disparate paces, coupled to a long history of assorted injuries, I can't see Orton ever taking "his" #2 spot back in the future, unless there is some sort of near-disastrous series of calamities to a bunch of different main event level guys.

Re: Will Orton regain his place in the company?

I don't think he will be #2 again. WWE is pushing younger guys right now and it's working.

Ryback and Daniel Bryan are really not that far off of Orton in their levels of crowd acceptance. They love when both of them come out already. Noticeably more than the rest of the roster. Then there's Ziggler, whom I suspect would also be very over if he were to get an elaborate face turn at some point.

Then there's Cena who nobody will be over as long as he's around. And Punk and Sheamus who's pushes have been long and hard. Can't get over guys who are given everything.

I think the deck's stacked against Orton right now. #2 doesn't seem possible with the way all the pushes are going right now. His only hope would be for Ziggler to cash in or for Orton to win the Royal Rumble and take the title at Wrestlemania.

I don't think he's incapable of getting over any particular guy besides Cena, but I don't see him getting over everyone at once.

They were saying he's the 5th most over guy right now, not the 5th best wrestler. I like Ryback more than most and all, but I certainly wouldn't call him the 5th best talent on the roster now. 5th most exciting though? I could see that. Maybe even 4th.

I agree. He's where he is due to lack of push. Sheamus and Punk being where they are due to the big pushes. Given equal push to either, Orton would probably be over them. As it is, without much of a push he's still #4 behind only Cena and the two world title holders. Not bad tbh.

Re: Will Orton regain his place in the company?

Looks like he has trying to grow his hair out again, ala 2002-2006, hoping to get that push he used to get coming into the company.

Wanted:

A tall well built woman with good
reputation, who can cook frogs
legs, who appreciates a good fuc-
schia garden, classical music and tal-
king without getting too serious.
But please read only lines 1, 3 and 5.

Re: Will Orton regain his place in the company?

Orton is kind of boring now. I never really saw him as a top guy in he first place.

Randy Orton is one of the most over stars and a very relevant name.If he is given a storyline as someone pointed,he is going to be a top star again

Ulfric Stormcloak; not a racist, not a megalomaniac, not a savage, but a hero with heart & ambition.

All hail to Ulfric you are the High King
In your great honor we drink and we sing
We're the children of Skyrim and we fight all our lives
And when Sovngarde beckons everyone of us dies

We drink to our youth to the days come and gone
For the age of oppression is now nearly done
