    What do you see Orton doing at this point?

    His 'Mania match was pretty damn sweet in terms of him being against the wall and having to overcome the odds of Legacy double teaming him so to speak. It really brought out the face angle in his whole position. But now that 'Mania is over and Legacy has been put aside (for now), what do you think Orton is going to get into on RAW Or do you see him getting drafted to SmackDown?

    I personally see him keeping his sociopath gimmick but still getting massive pops. Possibly opposing Batista on RAW.

    Re: What do you see Orton doing at this point?

    I don't see him going against Batista, 'Tista is still tied up with Cena...and I wouldn't really want to see it go to a triple threat. Last Monday didn't really give any light as to what he'll be doing...maybe a run with Swagger? Both men need to be kept busy before Cena/Batista ends, he could also make Swagger look better before his run in with Cena.

    Re: What do you see Orton doing at this point?

    I could see that happening. Have Orton keep his face role by putting Swagger over and while they're doing that they're keeping Swagger busy too without the focus being on the MITB cash-in moment.

    But I really see Swagger getting drafted to SmackDown this year. I don't know why.

    Looks like he's going the Stone Cold route and the marks are eatin' it up. I don't like Orton, never have never will. Face or heel.

    I think they'll send him to Smackdown in the draft, then go from there.

    Re: What do you see Orton doing at this point?

    My guess is a big face push on Raw that will eventually lead to him getting the WWE Title again. It seemed on Monday that they were keeping the possibility of Cena and Orton feuding, which I hope doesn't happen.
    SWEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!

    Anything that leads to Orton being WWE champion is gold IMO.

    I'm gonna have to disagree Professor. The shit he does and how crazed he seems when he's coiling for the RKO is a testament to his committment to his gimmick. Having him just wait there for the opponent to turn around would be horribly boring to watch. And plus bro, the crowd goes WILD when Orton is on the hunt.

    This.

    I LOVE it when Randy is coiling for the RKO. It's one of the many things that make Randy the MAN IMO! RKO is one of the main draws of the WWE for me.

    Orton preparing for the RKO with his mannerisms is like HHH doing his roar and air raise or Batista doing his rope shake & thumbs down. It's just a signature part of his characters actions.

    I'm eating up the antics too, especially since he seems more demented and freaking out quicker in matches.

    I kind of wish he would start using that delayed falling neckbreaker that he used to do a lot earlier in his career. Move was sick, and used to look really good and get a great reaction from the crowd everytime.

    His gimmick is being a viper on the hunt bro. That's his whole thing, outside of the ring. IED only fuels the gimmick because he randomly outbursts with attacks and shit and it just makes him more awesome imo.

    At least his gimmick is original and hasn't exactly been seen before.

    If I'm not mistaken, I think he helped basically come up with the whole Viper persona. It's something he just started doing and stuck with it. Personally, I love it & think It's hilarious when he's standing by a downed opponent and then he "spagetti leg flops", rolls his head & eyes back then down to the mat onto his fists. It's amusing and really builds the anticipation for the RKO.

    Just like Undertaker isn't really a deadman, but I don't see anyone calling out his antics, rolling his eyes into his head, stealing people's souls and whatnot.

    Thing like Orton having the Viper/Snake persona/mannerisms don't bother me for the most part. On the other hand the whole Festus character/persona was a little too much for me. Glad he's now Luke Gallows.

    Orton has the best mannerisms and subtelty in wrestling today. Easily.

    His cheers suggest he could be an anti-hero the likes we haven't seen since Austin.
