Randy Orton on John Cena’s Injury

Randy Orton recently spoke to The Detroit News about WWE’s decision to make him the top heel of the company once again.

“It feels really good,” says Orton, on the phone Monday from Toronto before going live on “Monday Night Raw” that night. “I’m glad I can get another shot. Not to harp on the past or anything, but I’ve made a few bad decisions here and there, and this is my chance to prove not only to the fans but to the company that I can carry the ball and represent the company.”

Orton also commented on how John Cena’s injury opened the doors for him to be a top contender on the roster again.

“I’m not saying that’s the sole reason, but it doesn’t hurt,” says Orton, referring to the sidelining of John Cena, who recently underwent surgery on his tricep and is out for four to six months. “They needed somebody, and they looked around and they go, ‘There’s our guy!’ It’s not like I said, ‘Hey guys, I got an idea. Help out.’ ”

    Spoken like a true champion.

      your down voters are the butt hurt Punk fans crying that he isn’t in Orton’s spot.

      • Mrs. Ambrose

        Yeah there are people, that are going to hate because he is the WWE Champion.

        • KO Kid! Kassius OooohNooo!

          Not really true. Everyone already know why he’s WWE champion, just to elevate Bryan. And Punk doesn’t need that spot at all, cause he’s already going to be involve in the corporation story-line later on. And he doesn’t even mind not being WWE champion too, cause he already know that Bryan deserves everything he’s gotten so far, and he would rather help groom new talent by fueding with them and making them be relevant to the company for fueding with a guy who carried the WWE on his back for 400+ days.

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            I agree with you and I can’t get mad when you are telling the truth.

          • i just hope it leads to Bryan becoming the face…but they’re running out of time to establish that because Cena’s body heals fast and he’ll be back real soon and I hope they keep Bryan at the top. He’s a rarity, no one gets crowd reactions like that nowadays.

      • KO Kid! Kassius OooohNooo!

        What does Punk exactly has to do with this? Punk is already in a prominent role as he’s in the second top story-line right now to introduce new talents and help them become successful by fueding with Punk. Punk will be back in the title picture/main event picture after the Heyman fued runs it’s course which will be through-out this whole year. I’ma Punk fan, and I ain’t crying over the fact that he ain’t in Orton’s shoes. Cause EVERYONE already know Punk ain’t involve in the corporation story-line for various reasons. It ain’t Punk’s time to get into another story-line yet because he’s needed for other reason’s and that’s to help groom new talents by fueding with him and Punk doesn’t even mind doing that at all. So I’ve no idea why would you even bring up his name for no reason what-so-ever. Orton’s role was just to push Bryan as the face of the company and to consult with a way to build Bryan up in a main event caliber story-line. Punk has NOTHING to do with this, or the down voters. I don’t get why people brings up Punk’s name all the time whenever it comes to stuff like this for no reason.

      • Kayfabe Fan

        Punk was the top heel last year, and early this year…

      • Chelsii?

        Considering Punk just came off probably the greatest run in his career, which has cemented his legend status, that doesn’t make sense.. if anything, Orton was the one pissed that he wasn’t in Punk’s spot for 434 days.

  • KingBack

    He is where he belongs now.
    I just hope that when he is done being WWE Champion and feuding for the title
    that he goes after the WHC instead.
    Del Rio is such a crappy champion and I can’t believe that he already have won four world titles
    while non of his runs have been good at all.
    The only time I enjoyed Del Rio just a little bit was in the first couple of months of his face turn while feuding with Big Show.
    I just hope for now that Sandow wins the title soon and brings just a little prestige back into it.
