Randy Orton gets lost while cutting a promo on Sheamus and asks him, "What's my line?" several times
This just proves that Orton would be lost if they took his script away. Makes me seriously wonder if they just gave him bullet points to go by if he’d be worse or better improving his lines.
He would be better off improving
He obviously can’t if he has to keep asking what his line is. If ever there was a time to prove you were more than your script, forgetting your lines and going off the cuff would be the best time.
He could improvise what are you talking about? the former best heel in the company can’t improvise? have you ever stop to ask yourself that maybe vince outdoes want any improvising in PG or that the line his missed was important and needed to be said?
The line was so important that he couldn’t remember it? You’re just adding fuel to my statement that without a script Orton is useless.
You also probably missed the story a few weeks back stating that Triple H wants to phase out scripts and go with bullet points and let these guy freestyle in the ring and see who shines.
you dont know what goes on behind the titantron and neither do i. stop using this to justify why you hate randy so much. you wrote a essay on a simple mistake he made and he’ll never…….and i mean never see it!
now if ya smelalalaalao what the rock is cooking!!!!!
Who said I hated him? I merely question if when Triple H flips the switch from scripts to bullet points if Orton will be at the same level as the guys who can rip on the mic without a script.
i’ll just leave it at this there was a WM after party like there is every year he could have still been a bit tipsy… idk but he doesnt forget his lines often so why are you on his case. he been there since 04 and road dogg always trains people on how to wing it backstage he’ll be fine
Are you just not reading what I’m saying or just purposely avoiding the point.
1. He’s very good at reciting his script just like a robot.
2. In this particular case he forgot his script and did nothing to “wing it”.
3. When scripts are replaced by bullet points I question how he will fare.
I don’t know how better to convey to you what I am saying.
“Keep asking what his line is?” Give me another example of when he messed up his lines, and I might agree with you.
I cannot, because he is quite good at reciting his script like a monotone robot.
I think you have that backwards. When you have to memorize a script, it’s easy to forget lines if it is your first time seeing it. I was a drama minor in college so I have a bit of experience with this. First time seeing your lines and having to act that out is hell.
Fully agree. As an actor its tough memorizing certain verbage when you dont use it inregular conversation.
Being able to make comments off the cuff are why guys like Stone Cold and Rock were so good. If you can’t improvise when you forgot your line, then you’re worthless.
I know he is not in their league but Cena also has the ability to make lines out of thin air.
like in this Raw the “sex with chocolate” line from “sexy chocolate” Chants was funny
I think Cena and Punk don’t have anything to worry about if they lose their scripts. Most of the old school guys would be fine… But then I see guys like Orton or Sheamus and I have to wonder if they would make it if they no longer had a script to read from.
Yeah but he forgets his lines so instead of Improving his lines he just keeps asking Sheamus what his line is? That would be the best time to show off that you can improv but he failed.
Ha! Fair enough.
you act like orton botches every week…he did it once and you say it proves something???????? lol get real
Not at all. Normally he acts like a monotone robot regurgitating a script every week.
“Hey Sheamus, what’s my point?”
He did not ask him “whats my line” he asked him “Did you remember to pay that hooker last night? Her pimp keeps texting me making threats at us”
Randy Orton’s married with a baby girl. Have some respect. And that “joke” was corny as hell!
You’re just made someone beat you to the punch. Have some respect? It’s the internet kid.
Randy Orton sucks
Randy Orton is boring
Randy Orton is gay for Cena
Randy Orton is a robot
Randy Orton cant wrestle
Randy Orton has no mic skills
Randy Orton should retired
Randy Orton is asshole
THANK YOU FOR AGREE WITH ME!!!!!! I KNOW ORTON SUCKS AND WOO WOO WOO YOU KNOW IT!!! GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU. HAVE A NICE DAY!!!!
We really need an IQ test requirement before users like this can make accounts.
YOU F*CKED UP! YOU F*CKED UP!
Make the poor guy heel already, you can see he’s fed the hell up in being a stinking good guy, bring back the kicking to head, DDT the diva’s, RKO’ing the hell outta everyone that we all know, The Legend Killer, The Viper Randy Orton
Lmao… I love this shit! Too funny
“Damn it Randy”…lol that was funny
Randy was never that charismatic to start with. He’s a tremendous wrestler, but is not always given the best of mic or promo times. Everything else, Orton does NOT lack
when did you start watching two years ago???? orton is one of the most charismatic guys in the business right now. your comment is just so ridiculous i am screaming at the monitor lol. when he was in evolution he was so charismatic….and the legend killer gimmick….just stop please im begging you
Dude.. how long ago was that! they werent epic promos i’ll tell you that much.
they dont have to be epic to say orton is a charismatic wrestler..
Fuckin Randall lmao XD
if i were given the same lines as him I’d be trying to forget them too
damnit Randy!…xD…but in all seriousness I think this is why it’s best not to completely rely on the script and make sure you’re good at improvising because once you forget your lines you just freeze and you’re pretty much screwed (it happened to me when I did drama at school and it does really suck when it happens lol…xD)…so I guess improvisation is the best way to go just so you don’t mug yourself off like Orton did…xD
I hope Kofi punts him in the head. STUPID! STUPID!
and this is coming from the little baby that bitches when someone messes up working with him…
Yeah, so THIS is going to be on the next edition of Botchamania. Along with Big E. caving AJ Lee’s chest in on the way to the ring for his match.
in situations like this you’re better off improvising than blatantly asking for your lines on live televison…
I think this is what happens when you try to make a leopard change its spots. Randy Orton is a natural heel. When you try to make him a babyface or even a tweener, it doesn’t work. It takes him out of his element.
Whats a heel?
its part of your foot
I’m not sure if you’re kidding or not, but on the off chance that you are serious, I will explain to the best of my knowledge. Most wrestling matches use a good guy vs. bad guy structure. The bad guy is called a “heel” and the good guy is called a “babyface”. In the modern wrestling world, those roles are a bit harder to define and so a lot of wrestlers are called “tweeners”, since they walk a fine line between good and bad. An example of a good tweener is Stone Cold Steve Austin. He started out trying to be a heel, but the crowd response to him was such that he could work any match from either side.
Randy Orton is naturally a heel due to his mannerisms and speech patterns. When he tries to be a babyface, it seems forced and not believable. When he is left to his own devices and comes off as a heel, he’s top notch. In the video here, the fact that he’s not comfortable as a babyface seems apparent.
Seamus, on the other hand, seems to be quite naturally a babyface. Sure, he started out as a heel, but the transition to babyface was remarkably easy. His smile is natural and he never comes across as anything more than a good-natured Irishman with a penchant for fighting.
I think actually shows how he could handle a bad live situation… the crowd didn’t even notice and sure this crowd in particular would’ve let him know if they did notice… cudos to him
I don’t know about that. I think this particular crowd didn’t notice because they were too busy chanting for Lawler, Cole, JBL, Justin Roberts, etc…
They didn’t notice because not everyone can read lips. They didn’t start those chants until the match started.
take the hint…your wrong please stfu and stop being a hater orton has great mic skills your just too stupid to realize it one promo doesnt break someone. rock austin and the best of the best botch once in a while SO TAKE A HINT KID
lol, kid? Tell me child, how is an opinion wrong when that is all it is? Obviously you have a very favorable opinion of Orton’s improv ability even though neither of us have ever been privileged enough to have seen it. Or maybe you and Orton belong to the same improvisation group?
Shouldn’t have lines anyway. Should be up to the wrestler what to say.
Lol i was wondering what that was about. You could even hear him tell sheamus to reverse a move and bend over
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEXU6F3rq_Q please watch
Give me my 30 seconds back you little bastard.
Unlike wrestling that was real
I bet “heel Orton” would remember his lines, lol
Randy should really keep those lines in his head, then maybe he could hear the voices telling him what to say…
I think yall are downing Orton too quick. Did he mess up? yeah! Am I trying to make excuses for him? No. But the man has a large fan base and is extremely entertaining while also being able to remember complicated and detailed lines at time. Hope he gets another chance to improvise again.
So i guess that means its a triple threat match at Extreme Rules?
Hulk Hogan, Lex Luger, and now Randy Orton.
just walks over whats my lines in broad daylight looool
I was wondering why he paused so long and started whispering to Sheamus during his speech. I thought most WWE stars improvised anyways, I didn’t know that it was a definitive script they followed. No wonder it’s been so corny these last past years.
Orton works best as a heel, he hasn’t turned heel yet which leads me to suspect it’s going to be a “big surprise” when he does… I just can’t wait to see a Heel Orton. You can tell how bad he wants to tell off the fans in the middle of matches.
It happens guys lay off
i love him no matter what he awesommeee RKO
Well looks like he still smoking weed…….
or maybe when orton was talking sheamus was supposed to interfer him and makes his point but he didn’t so perhaps orton was asking him if he lost his line so randy can improvise to settle the situation .who knows because i don’t think that when he was whispering “what’s my line” but he said “…mine”
too much marijuana
Nicely done, Randy. I thought he was doing that on purpose.
You are all missing what really happened.
They had just been given to him. Remember how they said that Twitter would decide who would face Show? Then they came back from break and Booker made the 2 fight it out.
It was a very abruptly booked piece to begin with.
He seems to have lost his passion for this business…maybe it’s time he goes away. I like him as a performer but there is simply too many others that can replace him.
i just think the wwe should have the iwc examined and tested, because all of you seems to be on drugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Get over it. Nobody’s perfect. When the Rock came back
for last year’s WrestleMania he had his lines written on his left wrist.
They only have a short time to glance at the script before the cameras start rolling. Plus with the whole PG era wrestlers probably aren’t allowed to” go off the cuff.”
I think it’s so cool how wrestling fans never make mistakes at their jobs…..
(Oh wait, most of the “smart” fans don’t have jobs. My mistake.)
and they want him as the face of wwe what a joke
