Quote From Jim Ross Website

The broadcast was solid until the AJ-RKO match which was excellent and pushed this show up another level.  Both men came to work ready to excel and they did. Orton was as good as he's been in a while and when Randy is 'good' he's damn good. AJ Styles once again proved Tuesday night why I perceive him to be the best bell to bell performer in the pro wrestling biz.

Isn't it unique how seemingly every opppnent of AJ Styles has their best, WWE bouts against the Georgia Peach.



Worthy of a thread for putting on one of the best free TV matches we will see on Smackdown at the very least all year.

I really hope it's just a taster for a full on fued through the summer as we head towards Summerslam.

Especially it a double turn happens so they can both play the role they seem more comfortable in.

I'm unsure what role Orton is playing, he still seems very heelish to me.

It's well known Randy hates being a face so maybe the tweener type character is a compromise.

These two do need a to have a full blown feud as this was a quality match and it would be a injustice if AJ and Randy don't get to work together on a few PPV's.

Rumour has it AJ Styles is heading to Raw before Summerslam so hopefully these two will have a programme right after Wrestlemania.

Quote AJ Styles does an interview in the back where he starts off by saying he's happy to hear the news about Roman Reigns. The interviewer says that people are saying AJ is in a slump in his career. AJ says he's his harshest critic and anything less than perfection is a disappointment. AJ says he hasn't been at his best, and he blames himself for the rise of Daniel Bryan. He says it took him 15 years to get to the WWE, and nothing was ever given to him. AJ says he's going to stop listening to the critics, pick himself up and keep fighting any challenger in his path. Randy Orton walks over to interrupt. Orton takes issue with AJ calling SmackDown "the house that AJ Styles built," and he walks off.
 
I'm all for this. Two of the best guys on the brand, having a one on one fued instead of being involved in a clusterfuck.
 
We know they have great in ring chemistry from times in the past they have been in the ring together.
 
It's a chance for Styles to win another fued so he doesn't get a loser reputation since losing his title.

Not interested in this one bit

I just got very interested in this. This segment on the most recent episode of Smackdown was fantastic. I'm so glad that they've gone with Randy representing the WWE establishment vs AJ representing the indies aspect of this.

I hope this gets built upon so that it's more than just Orton vs AJ and almost becomes like a WWE civil war, because it's a storyline I personally would like to see more than almost any other.

Realistically they'll probably let me down and it'll just be a side-gimmick to this one feud and that'll be the end of it after wrestlemania, but even so, for now I'm completely invested in this storyline more than any other going into wrestlemania. At least until next week. :p

Likewise, don't know what it is about him, I actually quite like his character and he's good in the ring, it's just every major feud he participates in seems to be boring.

Having now watched Smackdown I have to admit the promo work from these two was excellent, the insider references were great and it really made you believe there was bad blood between the two men.


The storyline writes itself here, Randy is almost the stereotypical WWE guy, has the family connections, the traditional look, was raised in the WWE system etc, while Styles represents the opposite of that, a guy who worked the indy circuit, Japan and TNA for the bulk of his career before finally making it to WWE.


It is very much WWE vs the indies.

I too have actually watched the promo now instead of skipping past the orton stuff like i usually do and i have to say i take back what i said above about not getting excited about anything he is involved in.

This promo was actually fantastic and Orton came up pretty strong in the exchange 

Now the promos are one thing - Ortons in ring style is pretty robotic these days but if anyone can drag something relatively close to 4 stars out of him - its AJ

Heheh glad to see you guys came around. You know me enough to know I find Orton incredibly boring as well, and TBH I don't even care a whole damned lot of AJ Styles as a character. But this? This is great.

I have a suspicion this promo is probably going to be the highlight of their feud but if this storyline progresses continuously from now until mania, and at least stays at this level of quality I actually think it could be the highlight of Mania.

Strangest of all is Orton vs Styles??? Really? That's a possible show stealer?

I'm really looking forward to seeing what they do on Tuesday. I'm sure I'm going to be let down by the followup, but maybe, just maybe it will continue to be great.
