Re: Randy Orton's gimmick isn't for sell.

Orton won't be the top face, he doesn't have the charisma to be so.

Austin's character WAS more fan friendly. The beauty of his feud with Vince was that he was everything the fans wanted to be, a beer drinking, anti authority guy who said exactly what was on his mind and told his boss where to stick it. He connected to the fans, the fans identified with him.

Randy Orton is still playing a sociopath and became face by an accident. He doesn't really connect with the audience on a personal level.

Regal: He made me kiss his backside but it was a pleasure because it was such a wonderful backside.
