"Cowboy" Randall Orton
I don't think blue blooded would work. Since he is the son of a cowboy and he has those tattoos you wouldn;t expect on a person from the higher class.. rtonI would like to see him in a sort of blue blooded, superior, best athlete sorta gimmick or a roller destroying everything in his path to become the champ starting with the Rock through to Cena and finally Punk.
Basically.SMH. Orton doesn't need a new gimmick at all. He just needs to tweak his current character a little.
The old saying "If it's not broken, don't fix it." is perfect for Orton. I'd love to see him evolve just as much as you, but he doesn't need to. He still has the fans behind him. I'd be willing to bet that when he returns, he'll be just as popular as ever. There are plenty of heels for Randy to work with.Yes, Orton does need a new gimmick. Every wrestler needs to evolve and try different stuff out. If Orton lands in the main event scene on Smackdown (and that's very likely what will happen), he has to transition to a heel. It can be gradual if WWE is hesitant at first, but Smackdown can not support the face booking of both Sheamus and Orton. Just like with Raw where two faces of CM Punk and Cena couldn't survive and sustain the show, neither can Smackdown. CM Punk turned, Orton has to turn. Without it, the balance is upset and heels can't gain any momentum.
