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

All they have to do is throw a button-up dress shirt on Orton & let him do the talk-show rounds. There's no reason why he couldn't represent the company well. This isn't the Orton of 2005 we're talking about. To the best of my knowledge, he hasn't destroyed any hotel rooms or dropped any loads in handbags lately. He's matured. And I'd suspect he has a decent enough sense of humor.

Beyond that, I don't see Cena going heel any time soon anyway. Oh, and by the way, Paul Wight's your best bet for a solid, all-around entertaining guy anyhow. But I doubt that's going to translate into a run as their "number one" babyface.

^^ To your point, he made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2004 before Taboo Tuesday, and he did a great job. He definitely has the ability to represent well.

You have all the right to be just as proud of your brown skin as Sheamus has of his pale white skin. I fall somewhere in the middle cause compared to Sheamus I'm black

An RK-Os breakfast cereal would probably sell.

Mate, I was kidding.

Funny to see you get all deep about how beautiful my skin is and how I should be proud of it though. Some thought-provoking stuff man.

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

Orton was a good heel when he was cheating his way around with Legacy but even then his in ring presence just makes you love him.
He is not having a lot of mic time but i suppose this is partly because of his "no bullshit-serious-mental" persona. I am pretty sure he could provoke a lot of boos with the right script but it would ruin his gimmick if he suddenly started dishing the fans like Punk or Jericho. His persona works better with cheating or bullying ... not with the mic.

as for Orton as top face? it definitely can be done .... just a minor tweak with his gimmick and there you go. Not mental anymore, just bad-ass and without any friends/allies in the WWE. It is just up to the WWE creative to do it right (this is the hardest part) ... people evidently like Orton whether he is a heel or a face. The guy works matches like so few do today. He may not be high-flying but he knows how to take a beating and definitely knows how to deliver one.

I was kidding aswell...I have no problem with any skin colour whatsoever so I was only trying to promote my goat lifestly, where the only superior race is goat regardless of the race. And don't call me a racist, cause until you have a big pair of horns and a big goatbeardie you're automatically inferior to them. Now I don't have the horns, but I have a goatbeard so I am automatically halfgodlike. I am still trying hard nto figure how to get the horns though.

I'm getting a bit worried by your fondness of goats..

I can't help but love them. They are the cutest and at the same time most evil beeing on earth. How can you not love goats!
