Re: Randy constantly beating mid carders
When you don't bring up a roster of youngbloods to take pins, when the midcard is so devoid of all compelling face talent, this happens. Upper midcarder faces, and yes, Orton is definitively one now, are forced to repeatedly defeat heel midcarders clean and this devalues the entire enterprise. Men like Santino, Kingston, Ryder and the like are rarely seen as genuine opposition to a heel champ and therefore, in comes a guy like Orton or Sheamus or ADR to beat 'em a half dozen times clean. Then, the heel has been so devalued that he is ready to lose to a guy like Kingston or R-Truth and you buy it, but all you did is cut the throat of your midcard heel champs and took away all meaning that somebody like Kingston getting a midcard belt should have.
Years worth of this counterintuitive booking has ruined the midcard heels like Barrett, Rhodes, Sandow and Ziggler and it has failed to get any midcard faces over and furthermore, has obliterated the value of any undercard and midcard championships.
Take Kingston. He's a 3 time Tag Champ, 3 time U.S. champ and a 4 time and current Intercontinental Champ and it doesn't mean a thing! He's not one scintilla more over on his 10th belt than he was on his say, 6th. Quick, what was Kingston's 6th title reign and no internet cheating! Can't do it, can you? Fuck me running, nobody can and that is the point.
Number of belts for Jake The Snake Roberts: ZERO
Number for Kingston: 10
Will people remember Kingston 20 years after he retires? Fuck no!
