WWE, when trying to create a heel in Orton actually created an anti-heel.
I didn't say that I wasn't, it really helped that the dumbest guy I know in RL has literally the same face as Orton so he really didn't have to try hard to make me hate him. Ironically, Cena has almost the same face as my best friend so I never jumped into the Cena hate bandwagon

Apart from looks though, I found the way he wrestled quite "terrible" and I just loved seeing him jobbed out. When he turned face though I instantly started liking him somewhat so in my opinion, at least for me he is a very good worker. But as you said, I'm quite an exception to the rule, but only a few wrestlers, regardless of wrestling or mic talent can make me hate them as heels and like them as faces so obviously he has some special talent for that.
