    This is cool if it's true. Glad to hear that somebody who's been out for a while will be returning.
     
  2. Nice. They should really let him be heel this time. Have him attack someone like Sami Zayn or AJ Styles to get that heat

  3. Orton can be good at both roles, he just needs to feel motivated.

    I think it's about time Orton started challenging for the midcard titles.

  4. Agreed has he ever held the US title? It's funny how the IC and US tile have completely switched roles on importance in a year.

    Also he should turn heel and build up months of being a dick and then get into a feud w/ Brock for Summerslam.

  5. No, he has never held the US title. And I'd love it if he started challenging for it, and not only that, but for the IC and Tag Team titles, as well.

    Oh, hell yes! Bork vs RKO would be dope. Was hoping to see it during Bork's title reign, but it never happened. Shame. Hope they end up doing it, though!
     
  6. I just have this image of Paul Heyman getting RKOd stuck in my head that I want to see so bad lol

  7. My money's on a return during Wrestlemania to cost someone a title shot. In his last run, he wanted a WWE title shot. It was stripped from him due to an interference last time I remember. Feel free to correct or refresh my memory.

    But, me? I'd book him as a dick, like someone else said, but this time, to heels, like... KO.

  8. I am hoping randy attacks whoever wins the IC title ladder match. He makes his point and leaves... Then he has a feud ready for the belt
     
  9. I forgot this jabroni existed. Meh.

  10. I haven't missed him. He hasn't been anything special in my book for a few years now. I would much rather see one of the lower guys get a bump then have him come back and be part of the main roster again. uggg he is boring.

  11. Nah if he's used as a heel and helps push talent, he's cool.

  13. Orton is too popular to be a heel imo. His last run as a heel was disastrious whenever he wasn't feuding with Bryan, and since he's consistenly one of the most popular guys on the roster, I feel they should keep it that way. I'd love to see him feud with Bray Wyatt, Kevin Owens, etc. He doesn't have to be a heel to feud with Brock Lesnar, as we're currently seeing with Brock/Ambrose. Brock is the closest thing we have to a tweener.
    He dropped Heyman with one in October of '14. Ironically, it marked the only time that I can remember where Lesnar didn't take action against someone for assaulting or offending Heyman.

  14. I'm sorry but whoever suggested Orton turning heel is either ignorant or just wants change for the sake of change.
    Making a logical deduction would show that Orton is A) rather beloved and B) past his expiration date as a compelling character.

    Orton is what most claim Reigns already is (though I don't believe Reigns is there yet). He's monotone and too bored and unmotivated to change.

    It escapes me anybody can imagine Randy Orton giving a f*ck when he's been given ample opportunity to do literally everything. He's even been in the ring with Rock and shared a storyline with Austin where Orton was put over.

  15. Orton is pretty boring as a face. There is no direction for him to go. His last run as a face was terrible. Thats why he feuded with Sheamus for lIke 5 monthe with no storyline. I bet you that he himself would much rather play a heel because it's more natural for him. But he will probably stay face because "RKO Outta Nowhere" and so he can cash in big fat checks for his merchandise

  16. Also if Jericho can pull of being heel then so can Orton. They have similar careers

  17. That's uninteresting booking, not proof that Orton is awful as a face. What is entertaining about Orton as a heel these days... His anti-social personality and unwillingness to make any friends (even when he was forced to team with John Cena on a Raw in 2012, he admitted that he still hated him and would never consider him a friend) made him the closest thing to an "edgy" babyface that WWE had back in 2011-2013, and I'd rather have that kind of character back on the roster than another generic heel. His heel run as The Authority's paper champion wasn't exactly anything to write home about.

    He's won multiple world titles, main evented Wrestlemania, main evented Summerslam, won the Royal Rumble, and has been one of the most featured superstars on the roster for the past decade and a half. There's hardly any new ground for him to explore either way, face or heel. At least as a face, I'd see a less boring side of his personality, plus rivalries with a few people - namely Bray Wyatt and Kevin Owens - with whom he's never crossed paths with before.
     
  18. Well Orton is at the point in his career where he doesn't really need more accomplishments. Hes at the point where his role should be more focus on putting younger talent over, just like Y2J. His personality fits more as a heel persona, because honestly he comes off as an arogant dick. Also him and Y2J careers are similar. Both of them have been top guys but never considered as the "face" of the company but theyre literially one step below. They have had long succesful careers switching heel/faces roles but their best matches and feuds have been as heels. Oh and not to mention they are the only 2 to become Undisputed champions by unifying the titles of 2 brands. So that's how their careers compare for u people who hit the disagree button :finger:

  19. Randy should become Y2J's replacement and only wrestle a few months a year. lol
     
  20. You're not using logic though. You're a mark who's masquerading his opinion as being reasonable.

    It's one thing when a cat like Prince Bálor rolls in and advocates a heel turn because he loves wrestling and leaves it at that.

    You're obviously an Orton mark so why not own it and get out. Continuing to argue with Lockard with a weak argument only further exposes that. You're first the person i've ever met who's compared Randy Orton to Chris motherf*cking Jericho. That's a reach right there if I've ever heard it.

    Be ready for dislikes. I have plenty. If I were my old JC4life37 persona I'd likely have more dislikes than anybody on this site easily.
