Okay, I know I'll probably be in the minority here, yet I want to stir the pot.

I think Randy Orton is so painful to watch technically in a WWE ring that every time he wrestles, I pray for his ultimate demise.

I think he is hands down one of the least skilled wrestlers in WWE. He is completely terrible at selling, I never believe he is ever really feeling the grueling adventure of a wrestling match, I do not believe he knows how to realistically give or take a punch... nothing against his accomplishments, yet I think it has nothing to do with his skill.


Thoughts? ;)

orton is a good actor whos emotions seem real...awsome acting can counter balance not so great wrestling and vise versa, but i would have to say yeah his in ring belivability isnt as good as his acting belivability...oh yeah btw his new song is ass. it is the worst entrance theme in use today and maybe even forever...

hes so bland, and when Jericho called him a robot I laughed my ass off cause its true. hes too overrated for me to really like him, I don't think hes as bad in ring as you say he is. but I cringe when he's on the mic. I guess its his gimmick to be a emotionless psycho but I hate it

I will stay out of this because my comments would severely piss all of you off. 

Take note of my sig---he was the NUMBER ONE WRESTLER of 2007 so suck on that shit for a while!

as a fan of this guy since 2002, I don't let a magazine or anyone else affect my opinion either but it does solidify the fact that he's awesome!

Hell, I was hoping when I first looked at this that people were looking forward to his return as much as I am and wanted to discuss ideas on what could be done with him but if all this is gonna be is a "he's bland and boring" bitch thread, it needs to be closed cause nothing will be accomplished by typing that in every response that is made.

I been a fand of Orton since he was in evolution, he has always done well in his matches, he makes stories interesting, same way when he was WWE Champion, I hope he comes back soon.

First off,  "suck on that shit?" Come on. Aren't we a bit beyond, "suck on that shit?" Wink I opened the chance for a discussion that I knew people would have opinions on. I'd love to hear your opinion, even if the sig makes it a weeeeeee bit obvious that I've got someone who thinks differently!

Oddly enough, the very few times Orton has been in a funny role on the mic, I haven't minded him. Other than that, though, I agree that it's a bit like a game of Mad Lib, with the nouns changed.

This isn't a bitch thread: I want to discuss his stature in wrestling. I know a lot of people think he's the next big thing for the next 10 - 15 years; I don't, and I know I'm in the minority. Just for example, his match against Cena at the RAW dedicated to Eddie, I believe it was. Those missed clotheslines were the most disgusting attempt I've ever seen, and you can just tell he knows he's missing them: no sense that they're real. The two punches he takes early on are sold horribly. It's all of these little parts of the wrestling match that lead to a very unreal feeling whenever I watch Randy Orton.

I know this is me being picky, and I don't mind being picky with people other than Orton, yet this is what I do: I analyze. He's a big name, and I don't argue that, yet I do argue that he has terrible ability. And when I analyze Orton... I yearn for someone to prick me with a pineapple in the eyes. Wink

I can't see how Orton can be considered bland. I can see how he can be considered bland in comparison to ____, but in terms of ability, I'd say he has a fair amount of skill that makes his matches credible.
 
I can also see Saorse's point. Orton does fail at selling some punches, and fails to sell a missed clothesline. I've sometimes watched a match with Orton and his face just tells me "I'M MAKING THIS OBVIOUS! I'M MISSING THIS CLOTHESLINE! GLAD YOU ALL KNOW!".
 
What makes Orton Orton is his charisma. One of the few decent things Al Brock said on this forum was that Charisma can overide ability 95% of the time. Look at Hogan, his charisma was what got him over, not his wrestling ability. He is by no means untalented in any respect, but he's certainly no Dean Malenko :P.
 
Also - I dont often take into consideration what magazines state as almost pure fact. I have no objection to them taking an interest in rating wrestlers, and they often make good choices.
I also think that if your a fan of someone, the best type of fan is that who can accept the faults that the person they idolise has.
