Why is Orton forced to be a face?

He's made it clear for a long time now that he wants to be a heel and prefers it to being a face yet WWE refuses to let him turn. Its not like his merch sells like Cena's, i know SD's had a lack of faces for a while but since Del Rio turned face and Christian will most likely return as a face soon it seems Orton could easily turn heel without it affecting the balance of heels and faces. Plus the brand split is over anyways Raw guys show up on SD and SD guys show up on Raw every week.

Yeah Orton gets great pops but he is miles better as a heel. I know most will say "he's not really a face or a heel he doesn't like anyone" but i mean come on he panders to the crowd, and he's only able to feud with heels. So while he has this bad ass i don't like anyone attitude as a face he could really be the true ass hole he is inside as a heel and would make his character alot better. Because as its been said by many wrestlers, the best wrestlers are themselves with the volume turned up.

Because that would be interesting. So it 's not gonna happen. And if it were to happen, WWE would find a way to fuck it up.

Re: Why is Orton forced to be a face?

Because he's the only top face that is consistently and universally cheered, and there's not really anything he could do to turn heel. He's pretty much a watered down version of his 2009 heel character as it is.

Re: Why is Orton forced to be a face?

He never said he prefers to be a heel, He always said turning heel was a possiblity.

Other than that, the reason they turned Orton face is because the guy was getting pops as one of the most hated heels.

Heel turn is coming after mania.

Summerslam will be heel Orton vs sheamus or face ziggler for the title.

Top 10 all time favorites:

Stone Cold Steve Austin
The Undertaker
Shawn Michaels
Chris Jericho
Brock Lesnar
Kurt Angle
HHH
Edge
CM Punk
Kane (98-04)

Re: Why is Orton forced to be a face?

I have no desire to see him heel again, considering he's done all he can as heel.

They should just let Orton Tween as he see's fit... and Jericho for that matter.

Team who give's a fuck!

The fans are still cheering, seems the only people that aren't taking him seriously is the internet, who are irrelevant for the majority of the time.
