Let's consider a few, indisputable facts about Randy Orton:- 1)He is one of the most phenomenally athletic wrestlers in history, what is usually called "gifted" or being a "natural". 2)The Evolution of his character began with being a cocky, arrogant protege of Ric Flair, a Legend Killer, to an insidious, fractious, volatile "viper", to an overprotected corporate champion with HHH/Authority, and then nothing. 3)He's been the world champion countless times, won the Rumble twice, MITB, feuded with HHH, Taker, Shawn, Cena, Batista, and turned heel and face. Basically, done everything. However, it seems like all of that only serves as a curse, because, where do you go from there? I actually am a fan, so I'm not saying he ought to change his moveset or something, he's good in the ring, we all know that. But it feels like he's been around for so long, turned face or heel so many times, that vitality, vigour, and excitement seems to be lacking, not only in his persona/character, but in the person. May be it's even unfair to blame him, because what could possibly stimulate or challenge him now, except for the Writers/Creative to come up with something new yet again? And it's noteworthy that John Cena, who hasn't even changed his character and/or turned Heel once, let alone twice, still generates(even in an inveterate John Cena-hater like me) some sort of an interest, passion, or at least doesn't generate an indifference that Orton's presence seems to generate. And it is THAT which bothers me, since I really like Orton, and want to appreciate his presence. One of the factors about Cena is also that knowing his contributions, and his dedication to TV/Film, he is now a part-timer, and really only strives to engage in important feuds and matches. (Except the one-off match with Rusev, of course) I should think it safe to say that many, if not everyone, weren't quite inspired by the protracted Orton-Wyatt feud, his WWE championship win, for some inexplicable reason. (And again, we aren't really blaming the man per se, or his in-ring expertise, but some indeterminate, inexplicable lack) So I'll cease my ruminations and end by asking you:- How do you feel about Randy Orton's career, portrayal and feuds from recent memory- excited, indifferent, or outraged? Would you agree that some sort of a change is needed, that he is too precious to be a source of indifference, and lackluster feuds? What would you do with his character or booking, at this point?
