i wouldnt even call orton the better wrestler to be honest,he's slimmer and quicker yes but there is nothing stand out in orton's ability that id say he's any better than batista.Not only is Batista much bigger, he's even had better matches. Orton may be the better wrestler but Batista delivered more big time matches in his career. I think Batista had better match with all the common big name opponents compared to Orton. I would say Edge and HBK were a tossup when comparing Orton and Batista's matches with both. Batista had far superior matches with Taker,Cena and HHH compared to Orton.
