Re: Orton showing the geeks how to cut a promo segment

Great segment. When Orton can actually be bothered, he is really damned good.

Can the geeks show Orton how to wrestle an entertaining match?

If Orton didn't consistently put me to fucking sleep in his big matches he'd be GOAT level. But he's proven he can't, and so he'll never truly be that level.

I don't mean to sound overly critical, because this is good shit. Its actually the kind of shit I really enjoy before I say this:

Its also heavily produced, and there's a difference in cutting a promo like this and doing one in front of a crowd. Brock does really good in this atmosphere too, but is panned normally ( and wrongly in my opinion) when it comes to promos.




Again I like this, but its nothing to go ape shit about either.

BTW, I fucking love that Lesnar promo i just posted ^^^^

Yeah it was just a pretaped segment even hacks can do em. There's zero pressure. That and we all know the history between Orton and kofi. It's kinda hard to cut a shit promo if you have substance to call on.

I totally get what you're saying, but this is the only scraps of anything decent WWE has thrown our way in a long time so I'm soaking it in. You have "talent" backstage who couldn't cut convincing pre-taped segment promo to save their lives.. So, even though it's pre-taped, Orton is showing his experience here and owns it. There isn't much WWE offers to get excited about and this is one of those rare gems WWE managed to actually do right, and no surprise it's Orton..

As someone else mentioned. When Orton gives a shit he's hard to touch.

No they can't.. They're usually fucking atrociously embarrassing.

Not everyone can do this, you have to have an edge to it. If Kofi, and tbh, a bulk of the roster, cut some shit like this it wouldn't mean jack to me.

Re: Orton showing the geeks how to cut a promo segment

Delivered with all the energy and charisma of a Speak & Spell.

There is some good material in there, and it would be a good promo, if delivered by someone who was believable and engaging, but in the hands of Orton, it's just another monotone promo with production values to try to mask his flaws.
