I applaud Orton for his performances tonight. He was solid in every segment he was involved in tonight especially the two WWE Title matches where he sold his knee injury flawlessly. I’d say it was probably the 3rd or 4th best selling all year (after Taker at WM and Taker again on SD 9/10 with Punk).

And he looked like he was having a psychotic episode when he lost the title, lol!

um....no

Has wrestling really fallen so far that we are now creating threads about somebody selling a knee injury? He did a decent job but that kind of stuff should be standard for every wrestler at this level.

I agree he look like a psycho heel while that purely made Miz look like a Face if you judged it with the sound on mute - you see genuine emotion and happiness for Miz and rage in Orton

Psychology. The thing that separates the greats from the nobodies.

Get used to it because we won't be seeing any more of it as long as Miz is champion.

theproof your a moron. selling makes the difference between that whole thing being what it was a complete disaster. i like that this what pointed out for being good because it was. his selling was great and its the basic fundamental things in wrestling that make that whole main event what it was.

Orton's speech on Cena was dumb, Orton hugging Cena was dumber the rest was mildly ok WWE needed a change and I'm sure Miz won't have the title for long but it was necessary to do something like that.

Yeah, top notch selling from Orton. He made his injury look almost legitimate and managed to sell even when he was on offence, which doesn't look like an easy task. His facial expressions were back to their best as well, which was partly why he was so great last year.

The report about Orton being pissed at Miz can clearly be refuted now. He put him over big time.

Agreed. He looked way better tonite even before losing. Proof positive he is a chaser, not a holder.

As much as Orton's overall in ring performance can be mediocre, he is the best in the world right now at the subtle things that separate the good wrestlers from the great ones.

Agreed

Also, Ortons face when Miz's music hit ..(can someone make a gif for me?) I will get goosebumps/markout/nostalgia trip when I re-watch it in a few years like I do whenI watch austin, Rock stuff.
Firs time that's happened since I started watching WWE again

Why would anyone have to get used to something that they will not see any more of?

I just think this dynamic suits him sooo much more. A vengeful, furious, enraged Orton chasing egomaniacal loudmouth The Miz is much more entertaining at first glance than Orton being the one chased. Ironically, Orton benefits from this as much as anybody, I'd say. His momentum was dealt a crippling blow when he won the WWE Championship at Night of Champions. Perhaps now it can be reignited.

Oh dear...:no:

How low can wrestling standards be nowaday when a wrestler gets applauded and jizz all over just for the mere fact of selling an injury. fpalm

That´s the least of what a wrestler's supposed to do.

But given the fact that the E had a Reality TV celebrity for a Heavyweight Champion, I don't expect much from the Dubya Dubya E Universe standards.

Yes, Orton was really good on RAW again. I disagree with most people who don't like him right now, I'm still an Orton fan.

To all those going "It's great psychology, you just don't understand";

Nobody's saying Orton wasn't selling well. The issue is that some idiot's made an entire fucking thread about it. Sucking of Orton every time he shows a good grasp of THE ABSOLUTE FUCKING BASICS OF WRESTLING is not a good reason to create a thread.

Oh I see what you did there, clever. Take something the person used to do and use it to make them look uncredible. So, when Cena was champ were you running around saying "DUBYA DUBYA E HAS A TOILET CLEANER AS CHAMP!!2112`1¬¬lolzolo2l1¬!"?

I think not :rolleyes:.

The bottom line is the guy has worked his ass off to improve since the word go, if you can't see that and accept that then you're the one missing out.
