Vince changed his mind, Edge-Orton was finally blown off tonight on Raw with Edge going over via Alexa Bliss pulling an Ultimate Warrior puking gimmick


Per Meltz Edge will pick Roman, which leaves McIntyre with either Strowman, Fiend, Lesnar, Orton, or Sheamus for WM
I can't stand Orton. All that money, a 15 year massive push, all those big matches, and I'm not sure I've ever seen him wrestle where he actually looks like he gives a fuck. A decade and a half of phoning it in and then being given another huge, title-relevant feud. Bullshit.

Alexa is a goddess, though.

The Edge-Orton re-match at Backlash Meltzer would have rated five-stars if it wasn't taped so Orton can still go if he wants to

That's the irritating thing, though.

Clearly, he CAN go. Clearly, he's a really good pro wrestler. Has the look, has maybe the #1 finisher of all time, has the pedigree in the business, looks like a tough heel, has the moveset. He can put on a great match any time he wants to, with just about anyone. Everything is there.

He just doesn't give a fuck, and comes off entitled as hell. I'm sick of him. :conf

I mean, you watch guys like Daniel Bryan or the Miz, and they give you everything they have every time they appear. Every time. No matter if it's Wrestlemania or a random house show. But if it's not a PPV main event (and often when it is), Orton acts like he's turning up for another shift on the grill at McDonald's.

Odd thing is that in house shows Orton gets the biggest crowd pop when he comes out compared to everyone else on the card. Always baffled me

Speaking of Randy Orton, here's some incredible historical sound colour footage of his then 24 year old grandfather Bob Orton, Sr. in a tag team match from September 25, 1953 (when Bob Junior was still only two years old), towering over the other three participants..:
