So I thought Orton always sounded monotone...

Until I found this little gem:


What happened? Nowadays, yes, he sounds a bit badass and psycho, but I'd take this promo over the ones he has now any day.

He had a bunch of good promos during his Viper run too...especially at the end of 2008 and beginning of 2009. Always liked this one for some reason:


I think the real issue is that the Badass Face isn't allowed to be sadistic, and the Psycho Heel isn't allowed to be strong. If the WWE could toss out their Face/Heel boxes and forget what characters are "supposed" to be, we could have amazing personalities like the Sadistic Orton and Mid-2008 Jericho.
By the way, either it's me, or Randy looked juiced in that video. I could have sworn Randy dropped the roids after he got his tattoo, but when you compare Randy's physique then (that video has him absolutely chiseled) to now (skinny), it's pretty obvious lol

This was his best ever promo, he can be very good.
I don't know which was the best promo he ever made, but I'm not so sure about that one. Towards near the end he looked like he was running out of air and his face was going red trying to finish his sentences. But an awesome promo nonetheless.

I'm always not so sure about Randy being limited due to his Viper character. If Randy can act as pissed and cocky as he did back in his LK days, surely he can find the balance he needs to really make the Viper gimmick something that everyone can respect.

Basically, what I hope to hear from Randy which will make me laugh is, "All questions and threats will be responded to via an RKO."
