    A face only a mother could love, assuming he hasn't kicked her in the skull yet.

    He went from being the top heel in the company to it's #2 babyface. Why? Because he's much more talented than most of the smarks around this place give him credit for, and the fans knew it.

    He's had great matches with anyone and everyone you can think of (HBK, HHH, Cena, The Undertaker, Jericho, Batista, Jeff Hardy, RVD, Chris Benoit, Kurt Angle, among many, many more). While most smarks bash the match between HHH and Orton at WrestleMania 25 (was a bit underwhelming, to be honest), the program they worked leading up to that match was the most engaging, intense, personal feud WWE had given us in years. Brutally kicking McMahon out of the building on the Raw before that years Royal Rumble ignited the fire.

    He's methodical, intense and subtle. Three things I love in a wrestler. His in-ring psychology was second to none during his last heel run, and hasn't been bad after turning face either. I understand he doesn't do flippies, so that automatically eliminates him from being an IWC favorite. But, if I can change at least one mind (which I won't), it's been worth it.

    Will he win this tournament? Not even remotely possible. Should he? No. This thread is more about bothering his detractors than anything else. So love him or hate him, but always remember.. YOUR skull could be next!

    Yeah, honestly I don't see him going too far. First round he has EY, which he could and probably should easily win. Then after that he has a very rough road ahead. Still, in some instances I gotta back my hometown boy.

    I'm with you Nick, there's no way Orton is going to win this year's tournament, but he does have great accolades for his young career. He is one of my all time favorite heels, I mena punting Mcmahon's skull, Cena's father, DDTing Steph and then kiss her, getting his father to be disguised as a fan just to get a vitory over the Undertaker, beatiful! Just like you said it:
    . Anyway I cheer for him!

    R-K-O! R-K-O! R-K-O!
