    good, Orton is a much better heel!

  • YoungAngryMan

    Would be great if the brands were still split. Could have cm punk main heel on raw and ortan main heel on smackdown, but everyone shows up every damn place so nvm.

    • allan mccann

      They did that for like 10 years lol I like all talent on all showw

  • allan mccann

    Orton isa more interesting character when heel. But he has worse matches then khali,its like 80 percent fake stomps….

  • Rob Damovieguy

    One of the great things about old school WWE was the fact wrestlers would turn up on both shows. Rock would go from RAW to smackdown have his feuds with Stone Cold, Triple H, The Undertaker, Kurt Angle, the list can go on, I even enjoyed when The Rock feuded with The Hurricane. In regards to Randy Orton’s request to turn heel, yes he was a better heel, but its what the WWE Universe will buy.
