I can see it culminating in Orton/Bryan at mania with Bryan going over, Cena returning the next night to congratulate him only to AA him and kick off the next chapter of the underdog vs. Corporation with Cena aligned with Trips and that. Depending on Cena's return time line it may end up being Cena/Bryan 2 at mania.
That is entirely dependant on whether or not Bryan can sustain himself as the top face and prove to the company he can do it. If they are even remotely hesitant about his ability to do it they will bring Cena back as a face.
So, Bryan/Orton WM30 and Bryan/Cena WM31 is what you're saying? Sounds good, but HHH has to fit into this somewhere.
Suppose if Cena were to turn heel the next night like that, maybe he could face Taker at Mania 30, lose, and sort of use that to fuel the turn. I'd like it.
And I don't get what was so bad about Orton's part. He said what he was supposed to say and that "respect HHH" line was delivered pretty well. He didn't pause to allow any "What" chants which his promos from the past couple of years were filled with. You can't expect everybody to deliver with the yelling passionate delivery of CM Punk.
Nah, just thought his delivery sucked, the lines were bland, and he himself is still void of any emotion. I guess he's playing the character perfectly, but that's the problem. His character. He's capable of much more.
I can understand you though, his current position is a lot better than where he was a year ago.
