Re: What to do with Randy Orton

Orton doesn't seem the leader of anything...
Neither HHH, both are weasels, not vipers.

Top 10 for 2019: Becky Lynch, Nikki Cross, Ronda Rousey, Billie Kay, Peyton Royce, Toni Storm, Carmella, Taynara Conti, Jessamyn Duke, Bayley.
Seth Rollins
Jeff Hardy
Shinsuke Nakamura
Adam Cole
Aiden English
Roderick Strong
AJ Styles

Orton as a stable leader is a no from me, His character isn't suited for that role, Sure he had Legacy and that may have worked but not again.

As The Viper he's a solo performer and should have lead Legacy as The Legend Killer since he was more cooperative while in character, Now that's long gone.

Re: What to do with Randy Orton

They should go full circle and have Orton be involved in a legend killer story line but as the legend himself. Have Orton either in a master/apprentice deal or have a young guy taking out old timers/legends with Orton being the final boss per say. Obviously putting over said young guy.

Cut back his schedule so his feuds seem more relevant. He's 39 years old now and only capable of tweeking himself not reinventing. His card placement is fine as is.

Re: What to do with Randy Orton

He's had the same gimmick for years now, and he's been phoning it in for a while now. There's really nothing left.

That's very annoying.

If they keep him strong with lots of wins he could be this generations Undertaker. What I mean by that is roll him out 4 or 5 times a year for a big specitle match of sorts. I know he's not on a level of an Undertaker, but with all his accoldaes now WWE need to position him as such.

This. Start making wins over Orton mean something again. Dude is the biggest star left on the roster. One of, if not the only pure wrestler left. He shouldn't be losing to people like Kofi fucking Kingston.
