His one positive is that he makes very few mistakes in the ring, but that's only because his move set it so very limited. He's Vince McMahon's perfect wrestler, following the punch kick formula to the letter with nothing that makes him in any way special. I have never looked forward to or been excited about an Orton match. His promos are just as boring. It's as if he is the cookie cutter from which all the WWE cookie cutter wrestlers were made from in the early to mid 2000s. If you removed Randy Orton entirely from wrestling history, what would we have missed?Everything you said here is correct. However, some of these same shortcomings are actually strengths with him. True you won't see many ***** star matches from Randy. However, he always puts in a solid workman like performance and is rarely lazy in the ring. Orton has also been a main event level wrestler for well over 10 years now. Time and time again he's been at the top or very close to the top of major PPV's. I agree with you that I've never looked forward to a Randy match. However, if I was Vince McMahon, I'd be very happy with Orton as an employee because he can fill so many slots when needed.

Orton is the Harold Baines of HOFers.
