    Anytime now…


    Just have Orton cost his team the match against the Shield at WM. Tease the “traitor” being Big Show, but then have Randy Orton end up being the “traitor”. That would be some good booking.

    • Skinhead girl

      That idea F**KING SUCKS WORSE THAN LOUSY!!!!
      ****thumbs down******

      MY idea is way better:
      Want to know what it is? O.K. …..

      If indeed, it’s decided that it will be:
      Randy Orton has a team at WrestleMania…then he and his team work together and NEVER BETRAY OR INTENTIONALLY HARM EACH OTHER NO MATTER WHAT!!!
      AND….they work together with each other to defeat and kick as$ on The Shield at WrestleMania!!!

      And none of the guys on Randy Orton’s team would ever betray him or backstab him and he wouldn’t do it to them.

        • Wesey

          So she’s not going along with pretending pro wrestling is “fake” like a lot of people who are misinformed about pro wrestling…. so that makes her wrong? It doesn’t. She’s right about what she’s saying and what her opinion of pro wrestling should be like.

      • Lee Moonstomp

        Maybe WWE can’t exactly do what you want them to do right now because you’re not exactly a fan, per sae and because Randy Orton’s supposed to feud vs. Sheamus, Big Show, Cena, The Rock, Triple H, Brock Lesnar, or whoever he’s squaring off and going up against in WWE!

  • whos john cena

    Best heel superstar besides cm punk and ziggler when becomes a heel again.

    • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

      Punk is a great heel, but I don’t think Ziggler deserves to be mentioned in the same sentence as these two when it comes to being the best heel superstar to be honest. Ziggler has decent in-ring ability and potential to be a good heel but right now he’s not even in the conversation.

      • The Truth

        “Ziggler has DECENT in-ring ability”… Wow…. Seriously, are we watching the same guy? Jesus Christ,, how is Ziggler still under-rated…. The dude makes even bad wrestlers look great.

        • http://twitter.com/StrayXPunk Orestis

          comon Ziggler is awesome all right.And he does indeed make even bad wrestlers look good, but thats with his sellings.He is not a technician or anything like that though…Still IMO Ziggler should be given waaaayyy more.He deserves more than everything he is given.And tbh he is in the top wrestlers wwe has!

        • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

          You’re reading too much into my choice of words. I’m not underrating the guy, I WAS a long time fan and have been singing Ziggler’s praises since the spirit squad disbanded, and definitely long before the IWC adopted him as “their guy”.

          Ziggler is very good in the ring and yes he has consistently good matches. He’s a great seller, but his offense and execution of moves isn’t anything to rave about.

        • Skinhead girl

          Randy Orton’s amazing in the ring and on the mic! His facial expressions are usually so close to how I’m actually feeling that it’s nearly scary!

          • Russ

            Orton can’t read your mind but maybe the IWC smarks can, girl. Be careful. Cause you know that they may not exactly be open to your views and ideas just yet. If they’re not, you know how it goes…they won’t push for it to happen.

  • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

    I’m not a fan of Orton (although I have been in the past), and I don’t like
    him or his character, but I am a fan of his wrestling ability. He’s alot better as a heel, so a turn is long overdue.

    • Skinhead girl

      If Randy Orton’s GOING TO DO what I’m hoping and praying he’s going to do….then, it means only one thing and one thing only. I’m about to finally REALLY get to just INCREDIBLY love and adore the absolute hell out of Randy Orton and be able to once again finally actually enjoy WWE again!


      If he doesn’t….and has to do things that I’d hate him doing and that would hurt me to watch and would harm his daughter Alanna and his wife Samantha then…I don’t want him to do that and I only want to marry him because I really, REALLY am physically and emotionally and mentally attracted to him! I admire him for doing what’s right despite negative pressure from outsiders who just want to have him intentionally harm fans of his who adore him to death and who would and do understand how I feel about him. Because they too, feel the same as I do when they see him get intentionally harmed, disrespected, insulted, antagonized or they read gossip and lies about him or read misinformation and aren’t able or allowed to correct that and tell people the truth about what is actually really going on.

      Randy’s the only man in this world I would ever marry. In other words, I NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, AND DO NOT EVER, EEEEEVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVER,
      want to marry anyone else except Randy Orton!

      I admire his heart, determination to do what’s right and for being such an excellent role model. Not just for children and teenagers, but for adults as well.

      I like Randy Orton so much and appreciate him so much because he doesn’t intentionally harm people who don’t deserve it from him. Though, he’ll kick as$ on those who do deserve it from him. He’s reserved at times but he’s able to be extremely affectionate when appropriate. I just haven’t been feeling super affectionate as of late because I miss the hell out of him and I don’t get to do fun things with him face to face as often as I’d love to! Doesn’t mean it’s easier but knowing Randy….if he’s thinking of doing what I’m hoping he’s thinking of doing…then I will finally be able to enjoy and appreciate and love WWE again!


    • http://www.facebook.com/seachai.chan Seachai Chan

      Cena’s turn is also long overdue. I wish they can turn Cena heel too!

      • Oberon

        I don’t care what they do with Cena as long as he stops being allowed to get away with antagonizing people in WWE and watching WWE. But if he’s going to continue to be allowed to do so, then he should receive negative consequences that he doesn’t want and doesn’t like.

  • cm punk is god v1.0

    I am the best heel hands down!!!!!

    • Progress_Now

      you suck, hands up

  • Kingfortori

    BRING BACK THE PUNT!!!!!!!!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/seachai.chan Seachai Chan

      Vince took away the punt because he was afraid that it can cause head concussions on his superstars. The punt can EASILY be acted out without actually hitting the person’s skull on purpose.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_4OF2JDUTXED6KFOPHEVMJ2ZYBA raVen

        unless you are randy orton. guy has the hardest time doing anything without hurting himself or others

        • Ethan

          Randy Orton should only harm those who’d intentionally harm him right now….or those who’d intentionally harm a Skinhead girl who likes him one helluva LOT.

        • Bruno

          Orton’s quite the hero to a certain Skinhead girl. Maybe because of how she looks at him. Maybe he’s helped her in ways that he doesn’t realize he has. Such as at a time she was wearing a shirt of his and a guy was watching her from his vehicle as she was carrying packages or bags or somethin’ but when she looked at the creep the way she remembered Randy Orton staring menacingly at people….when he intimidates people….what’d he do? The guy peeled the hell away real quick.

      • Lee

        That’s your opinion.

        Randy Orton has acted out kicking people in the skull without physically kicking them. It would make perfect sense to me though, if a Skinhead chick were to kick someone in the skull for intentionally verbally or physically attacking Randy Orton. THAT would be f**kin cool, man!

    Silence is Silver but my Words are GOLDEN ,so shut up and read

    This is to certify the fact that I’m blocked again and again by those lameass,incompetent,lowlife scumbags and mentally handicapped bunch of idiots consisting of PG tools and cheatlord Cena’s worshippers who unprofessionally called themselves admins of WRESTLINGINC.COM………

    Among the great people of them,there are some deformed ten-head and hands deity worshipping immigrant scums from the lowest and dirtiest places on earth that are certified pusssies with fake accounts who blocks great trolls like THE COUNT whenever they got owned as always ,and these very association of untalented scums came from different untalented backgrounds as you can possibly see.They couldn’t even generate decent spoilers of their own and have to either copy or bootleg their sources from other better websites as you all know it..Its the only cult group on earth who blocks user just because of exposing the dirty and disgusting truths about the biggest backstage politician on earth and cheatlord bully called JOHN the CANCER cena,the deformed cowboy wannabe backstage politician cum Political stooge Jim -the goodfella talking from the side of the mouth-Ross,the fake Jamaican and real african PG brown-nosing chimpanzee called Kofi- the john laurinitis’s real life asss kisser cum coffee maker-Kingston and the mother of all she-devil cum the BITCHH and ever failing politician wannabe HAG Linda McMahon…

    They just thought that worshipping these PG clowns would cement their positive status to WWE as a whole and maybe they’d be known enough oneday in the future that they could actually land up in the WWE offices rather than maintaining this junk hole they called their own PG site..If you go to any other websites or in particular,those website where they used to obtained and bootleg their sources,I guaran-damn-tee that you will never find such pusssy like these clownshoes who worships the PG agendas like nazis and oppose anyone with the attitude era’s mindset vested with truths.

    And in closing,these bunch of jabronis,among the other great admins,consists of virgins who are mostly hommos, fake Christians,illegal aliens and bloody brownskin immigrants who thought supporting cena or PG makes them look more americans or respected citizens whilst in reality,you just couldn’t find more pathetic wannabes even if you travel half the damn globe.

    So I will be gone for now but I beg each and every great fellow anti-cenas,attitude,wcw and original ecw fans to go on exposing what you believe in.You just can’t let such lowlife scums of jabronis let you bite all those PG craps they trya shove down your throat through this shitthole website..And anyone who wants more inside sources or truth about these scumbags among the good admins,plz do inform…I WILL EXPOSE MORE IN DETAIL IF YOU WANT TO,STRAIGHT TO THE BONE MARROWS

    PEACE be with you all outlaws…My spirit will always be with you…see you on the other side 3

      sounds like a personal problem to me.

    • pixi

      WTF?!?!?!!–Orton’s not allowed to feud like he did vs. Cena in late 2007, Jan-Dec of 2008-2009 and some of 2010 when he was The Viper and was shaving his head and was clean shaven and was a badass toward those who deserved it from him and he had people intimidated by him when he felt like it…except this time, Randy Orton should get to kick ass on and defeat and beat John Cena like he should! And it would be cool for him to defeat Zeb Colter, and Jack Swagger too while he’s at it!
      Yes, John Cena has cheated, bullied and antagonized people. He’s lied to and about people and tried to get Randy Orton fired. And threw steel stairs at him in the WWE HIAC 10/2/09 PPV.
      I think it’s pathetic garbage that Cena got away with verbally attacking and physically attacking and antagonizing Randy Orton in the past.
      All I want is for him to get into trouble for doing that stuff to Randy Orton and stop allowing John Cena to get away with the things he did in WWE that he shouldn’t have ever done. I want Orton or even me to be able and allowed to do a match or several matches against Cena and kick his ass, beat and defeat him for those things he did in the past to Randy Orton.
      I know that’s asking a lot because most people are so busy kissing Cena’s ass that it’s not even funny anymore.
      That alone makes WWE f**king suck.
      But booing him doesn’t help much either.
      All that seems to do is give him what he wants.
      Cheering him is just as lousy.
      That also gives John Cena what he wants.
      That’s completely unfair, unjust and lame!

  • oldschoolguy

    Orton could always be a tweener guy. Even when he goes heel, he will still get huge cheers. Alberto on the other hand doesn’t work as a face AT ALL. There was no buildup or reasoning for the switch, he just tagged with Miz and suddenly they were both good guys ? Lame. I’d like to see some jobbers come in to fill matches, so that big name matches aren’t just constant repeats + moves like Randy’s DDT, Sheamus 10 forearms, should be saved for PPV shows only. And once again, why are Yoshi, Zeke and Mason being tossed aside ? How about a 6 man against the Shield ? How about 3MB vs The Shield ?

    • Skinhead girl

      Randy Orton being a tweener?? No f**king way! Randy having to be a tweener guy SUCKS WORSE THAN LOUSY AND HORRIBLY!!!!

      Alberto Del Rio can work as a face… but Jack Swagger is helping Alberto Del Rio and Zeb Colter are helping Alberto Del Rio to get cheered. Because according to the beliefs that Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter have, they are racists.

      Randy Orton’s DDT off the top rope shouldn’t only be done at PPV’s but whenever he feels like doing that. Sheamus can do the 10 forearms whenever he wants to. Randy Orton can do things like…blame the following opinon I have…on my being physically attracted to Randy Orton’s physique. O.K. ???

      He should flex his biceps when he throws a punch or sometimes pulls himself up on the ring ropes. It’s just because….I swear, he’s incredibly handsome as hell and I have been wanting to be physically affectionate with him since he started shaving his head and was clean shaven!!! Which began around late 2007 and during 2008.

      3MB vs. The Shield? That doesn’t make sense. It should be like…..the baby faces:

      Randy Orton, Brock Lesnar and Triple H…..


      the heels: The Shield

      That’d be so cool!

      Orton not marrying a Skinhead girl and being in a committed relationship with her totally f**king sucks!

    • Paul

      Randy Orton should be allowed to do his IED DDT, skull punt and RKO on opponents regardless of if it’s a TV match, house show or PPV.

  • morrisonfanone

    If they’re gonna do it, do it. Or get him a new theme song.

      You mean—– something by Skinhead Oi! bands like:

  • Frank

    I am still NOT buy that Orton HEEL! Until I see it will my 2 own EYES! U said back in Fall he would turn, then it was late fall, then it was early 2013 for him to fued with Shumus at WM29 (which is not having), Now it soon after WM29! I don’t belive it until I see it myself!

    Cena’s heel turn is LONG OVERDUE. This guy has been a face for over 7 years. NO ONE in the WWE history has been babyface forever in their careers. Even Undertaker, Rock, Orton, and Austin all had heel turns back to back.

    • Skinhead girl

      Yeah, so Cena’s a heel. So Cena’s a face. So he’s a tweener. Big f**kin deal. Maybe he can’t undo what he’s said and done to disrespect, insult, antagonize, lie about, harm, offend and spread untrue rumors about Randy Orton. But if I could have my way…Cena would just decide NEVER, NEVER, EVER, EEVVVVVVVVVVVVVER intentionally do things like what he’s done to Randy Orton again. Then he won’t be doing that to me anymore. And it’ll make it easier for me to forgive him. As for the IWC smarks…including those with racist views…honestly, they’re too p*ssed off about everything to do that. I’d forgive John Cena for 2 reasons:

      1.) Randy Orton has forgiven John Cena. If so, then he’d want me to forgive John Cena.

      2.) God already has forgiven John Cena and He wants me to do that.

      Those would be my reasons for doing it.

      • Joe Hawkins

        Not time to yet. Not until you get in WWE and marry Randy

  • Johnson

    Yeah… I was thinking the same thing. Only time logical enough is after WM, because right now he’s still very effective as a face feuding with the Shield. I’m not that excited to see a heel turn on Orton. Don’t really care if he’s face or heel to be honest. But it would be a nice change.
    They should consider re introducing the brand extension. Wrestlers could show up on all ppvs but there should be a difference once again between the brands to add to the freshness. Remember back in the day when midcarders or upper low card would get put on a brand and then came a sudden spike in their character development and they eventually became a champion? Or more established upper midcarders that become bigger and more impactful once the got drafted. Like Orton, and Cena back in the day. Or even surprise pushes that came out of left field, like JBL. I miss that !

    • Keith Viper

      WTF?! *eyeroll*
      You always think what you want and say what you want but don’t consider or give anyone else watching WWE the chance to enjoy it.

      • Oi Oi! Riot Upstart

        You know how Randy Orton was The Viper…when he was shaving his head and was clean shaven and was WWE Champion on Raw?? And even though he was labeled as a heel, he was actually a good guy and a good person?? I MISS THAT Randy Orton!!!!!

  • Bushwald Sexyface

    Its been kind of obvious they’re setting him up for a turn. Question is, who does he feud with after WM? Too bad Rock won’t be around. I’d like to see a feud between those 2 with Orton as a heel.
