Well, he was doing some G.O.A.T. tier heel work last year during his feuds with Jeff Hardy and Rey Mysterio but WWE decided to cool him off because it's not possible for Creative to be creative for more than a couple of months.
Agree, I thought it made Orton much more interesting and it's funny his gimmick became more creepy around when the "shake my hand" story started making news. 🤣

How he didn't shake a downed wrestler's hand after nailing them with an RKO is beyond me.

No, they can be a great character, but they suck as villains. If you don't mind the villain winning how villainous are they?

Heels can be cool. Heels can be bad ass. Think of genres outside of wrestling. Darth Vader was cool for his time for example. The issue in wrestling comes when heels do things to elicit a baby face response.

You should watch X-Pac vs Billy Kidman at Invasion 2001. Pac despite being a defacto face is still being shit on by the crowd. Also watch his whole WCW run I remember when Hall and Nash were getting cheered by the fans in WCW during a promo yet when Pac took the Mic it immediately turned to boos.

I don´t know about "cool".. If the audience cheers you, you´re doing something wrong as a heel. I recently saw an interview with Ciampa where he addressed how hard it is to be a good heel, how he constantly had to watch out for not doing/saying something that would get him cheered.

Great heels are despised but there are many cool heels such as Corporate Rock. He was despised then was liked.
