That shouldn't hinder a guy's progress in the WWE ranks especially when he's really over with the crowd. Just b/c Orton is Hunter's boy doesn't mean he doesn't deserve some flack here and there especially with his past. Vince has such a hard time letting younger guys get pushed its just ridiculous its just like Daniel Bryan when he came in on NXT and had Cole and everybody else ripping the guy apart even though he obviously was the best signing they've done since CM Punk. Those two deserve their fair share of the spotlight up there with the Cenas and Ortons of the WWE and I'm really glad to see that Bryan is probably the best face they have in the company right now.
I am sure his 2nd concussion recently is what is halting Ziggler's push. If this were true about his comments though, I dont blame him. You often dont see a wrestler violate the wellness policy twice and still get pushed like Orton has.
Let's be real, the wellness policy is b******t for PR. It has no real bearing whatsoever. And if it does, it is only reserved for mid-card talent. Is it fair, nope. But Randy Orton is no mid-card talent. He has the ability to make people love or hate him by looking at the camera a certain way. You cannot teach that. Only other person I know that could do that consistently was Hogan. I remember once watching "Hogan knows best", what a worthless show by the way, and HH tells Nick, while teaching him how to wrestle, the point is in a move to not have to repeat it. You want the reaction without having to do it several times. Say what you will about Hogan, but he f**king knows how to perform. So does Orton. He has so much goddamn talent, it comes ridiculously easy for him. When he RKO's someone, it is similar to the stunner. It is quick and effective. Very, very few miscues. Same thing when he is on the mic. If you do not hear him, and instead listen, you will note that 99% of what he says is the same s**t they all say. But, and here is the important point, we don't hear Randy, we listen to him. We listen to his delivery, his rising and falling tone. His almost slithering nature. I mean the motherf**ker at least watched 30 minutes of the Discovery
channel one night to get the "Viper" aspect down.
