So after reading all this hate the dude has gotten, it's gotten me thinking. When did he just suddenly become so boring? Am I the only one who thinks that Orton during his Legend killer run was great? The guy was such a good heel in 03-06 area. He was great as Intercontinental champ, and was a fresh face. Everything seems different for him looking back on it. When he does his signature pose then, you can see the cockiness and it makes you want to hate him. Now, it's just a dumb taunt. The guy seemed more motivated also. He was heading to the top rope, taking bumps and seemed more athletic. He put on great matches with Taker, foley, benoit, HHH and more. Now, other than a few decent ones with Bryan I haven't really found any good matches with him. He seems so lazy. The one that seems to get on everyone's nerves the most is mic skills. Am I the only one who saw charisma when he played that gimmick? I feel like once he became the psycho viper character he has just become so boring on the stick. The guy seemed so great and promising then to me, but now I just find him so bland. What is your take on him?
