Re: Why did Cena vs Orton never 'take off'?
Yeah - this. He should have won that match too. Him losing at Summerslam 07' made no sense. Typical counterproductive WWE booking. Can't believe it's been almost a decade now.This was their best match, and it probably was the hottest Orton ever was. He spent the summer going through RVD, HBK, AND Dusty Rhodes leading up to this match and WWE decided to let Cena go over him and Orton took a big hit after that match and was never quite seen as a threat again to Cena
Uncomfortable truth for most people on here - one that most are not willing to admit, but well aware of. It's also RKO's own doing though, partially - due to the point that you've mentioned. He's the perfect old school heel of the 21st century.Diavolo said:Orton probably the most talented guy of the last 16 years, more than Cena-Batista-Lesnar-Bryan ecc ecc but in the ring he is just LAZY
