Re: The Punt returned!
It was an awesome moment, made more awesome by Orton milking the moment with great psychology and really settling into what seems a more comfortable role for him to play. I can't say heel turn because, quite frankly, he'll be cheered in that role I believe.
As much as I didn't care about the match at first, those two managed to make it great. I guess it's sort of like Bryan/Ziggler, ZIggler/Orton, Punk/Cena, or Styles/Daniels... we've seen them hundreds of times but damn, if they don't somehow manage to pull you into the match eventually. Though I don't think this mini feud will continue... Orton seems primed for something else given the Payback promo.
Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace
