Video – Randy Orton Forgets His Lines During RAW Promo

  • Forceton Banfodder

    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

      • Forceton Banfodder

        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?

          • Forceton Banfodder

            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!!!!!

          • Forceton Banfodder

            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.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=732542390 Donte Shoshona Gopual

            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

          • Forceton Banfodder

            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.

        • http://www.facebook.com/aubrey.stewart.35 Aubrey Stewart

          “Keep asking what his line is?” Give me another example of when he messed up his lines, and I might agree with you.

          • Forceton Banfodder

            I cannot, because he is quite good at reciting his script like a monotone robot.

    • The Guest

      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.

      • natedogg90

        Fully agree. As an actor its tough memorizing certain verbage when you dont use it inregular conversation.

        • Forceton Banfodder

          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.

          • http://twitter.com/StupidSobi SOBI

            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

          • Forceton Banfodder

            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.

      • Forceton Banfodder

        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.

        • The Guest

          Ha! Fair enough.

        • The Guest

          Ha! Fair enough.

      • Forceton Banfodder

        Not at all. Normally he acts like a monotone robot regurgitating a script every week.

    Funny shit.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jeremycounty Jeremy-County Roberts

    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”

    • RespectTheSwag

      Randy Orton’s married with a baby girl. Have some respect. And that “joke” was corny as hell!

      • http://www.facebook.com/jeremycounty Jeremy-County Roberts

        You’re just made someone beat you to the punch. Have some respect? It’s the internet kid.

      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

  • guest

    thats funny

  • BrickHouse

    Lmao… I love this shit! Too funny

  • William Borchert

    “Damn it Randy”…lol that was funny

  • TrueFan

    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

    • http://www.facebook.com/naveed.sialvi Naveed Sialvi

      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

      • TrueFan

        Dude.. how long ago was that! they werent epic promos i’ll tell you that much.

        • http://www.facebook.com/naveed.sialvi Naveed Sialvi

          they dont have to be epic to say orton is a charismatic wrestler..

  • Walter White

    Fuckin Randall lmao XD

  • Meadowe

    if i were given the same lines as him I’d be trying to forget them too

  • http://twitter.com/JamieEvsxx JamieEvsxx

    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

  • riyadviper

    Lmfao

  • Noach

    I hope Kofi punts him in the head. STUPID! STUPID!

  • lunchbox87

    and this is coming from the little baby that bitches when someone messes up working with him…
    too funny

  • Derringer Duo

    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.

  • the_unknown

    in situations like this you’re better off improvising than blatantly asking for your lines on live televison…

  • VinceP98

    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.

    • http://www.facebook.com/aubrey.stewart.35 Aubrey Stewart

      Whats a heel?

      • gokule

        its part of your foot

      • VinceP98

        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.

  • essinodub

    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

    • Forceton Banfodder

      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…

      • BrahmaBullRKO

        They didn’t notice because not everyone can read lips. They didn’t start those chants until the match started.

      • http://www.facebook.com/naveed.sialvi Naveed Sialvi

        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

        • Forceton Banfodder

          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?

  • essinodub

  • Kings of Wrestling

    Shouldn’t have lines anyway. Should be up to the wrestler what to say.

  • Dave Smith

    Lol i was wondering what that was about. You could even hear him tell sheamus to reverse a move and bend over

  • riyadviper
    • Derringer Duo

      Give me my 30 seconds back you little bastard.

      • riyadviper

        Unlike wrestling that was real

  • http://twitter.com/SerpentSpeaks Serpent Speaks

    I bet “heel Orton” would remember his lines, lol

  • WWEFan4Life

    Randy should really keep those lines in his head, then maybe he could hear the voices telling him what to say…

  • http://www.facebook.com/aubrey.stewart.35 Aubrey Stewart

    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.

  • riyadviper

    So i guess that means its a triple threat match at Extreme Rules?

  • The Optimist

    Hulk Hogan, Lex Luger, and now Randy Orton.

  • lol

    just walks over whats my lines in broad daylight looool

  • TDR25_Forever

    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.

  • Lemon

    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.

  • TheUndertakerFan

    It happens guys lay off

  • http://www.facebook.com/david.post.395 David Post

    i love him no matter what he awesommeee RKO

  • Hotskull

    Well looks like he still smoking weed…….

  • http://twitter.com/soufiankovic soufianovic

    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”

  • heterosexual

    too much marijuana

  • morrisonfanone

    Nicely done, Randy. I thought he was doing that on purpose.

  • Steve

    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.

  • c j

    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.

  • spine_buster

    i just think the wwe should have the iwc examined and tested, because all of you seems to be on drugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Guest

    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.”

  • http://www.facebook.com/craig.deboard Craig DeBoard

    I think it’s so cool how wrestling fans never make mistakes at their jobs…..

    …idiots.

    (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
