2014 has been a very compelling year for the WWE and all the fans arguably Brock Lesnar had a very impressive year. Lesnar ended the most important streak in the wrestling industry by defeating the Undertaker undefeated streak at 21 at Wrestlemania XXX. In addition to becoming the new WWE World Heavyweight champion in impressive fashion when Lesnar absolutely destroyed Cena at SummerSlam.
Somebody that has being flying under the radar for a good portion of the year but deservers way more credit than he is receiving is The Viper Randy Orton. Randy Orton was the MITB winner and he decided to cash in his briefcase on Daniel Bryan after he retained his title against Cena at SummerSlam 2013. Orton got an assist from HHH he connected with a Pedigree on Bryan and he capitalized and became the new WWE champion at the time.
The following night on RAW HHH and Stephanie McMahon endorsed Orton as the new face of the company they would formed a faction called The Authority. Orton managed to fight off all challengers up until WrestleMania XXX where he lost his World Heavyweight title, to Daniel Bryan in a triple threat match against Batista.
Ever since that point he has been obsessed with getting another title shot, but he has yet to receive another title shot. However Orton continues to stays relevant without the belt that shows the fans his true value to the company. Orton, HHH and Batista shocked the wrestling industry when they decided to reform Evolution. Their plans didn’t go according to plan when they came short against the Shield, in two matches at Extreme Rules and Payback. There was some tension between the members of Evolution this caused Batista to quit from the company. Other feuds that Orton has been involved since that point have been very entertaining feuds with Roman Reigns and a brief one with Chris Jericho.
His current feud is with Seth Rollins the seeds were planted during the last RAW before the HelI In A Cell PPV The Authority, defeated John Cena and Dean Ambrose in a three on two handicap match. After the match Seth Rollins sent a message to Orton by connecting with a vicious Curbstomp. Orton snapped on the RAW after the HIAC PPV where he lost to Cena, and lost his opportunity to become the new number one contender for the WWE World Heavyweight title. Orton got in a heated confrontation which he ended up giving an RKO to Rollins and then left the ring I expect Orton to turn face and leave the Authority.
Randy Orton has always delivered quality matches throughout his career I cannot remember one bad match. Orton excels with the little things his facial expressions and his movements. As of late Orton has been connecting with unique crazy RKO’s out of nowhere. This has caused fans to go viral with creative RKO’s out of nowhere and posted them on Vine and YouTube and he is now globally over.
