When you think of the most intense wrestler in the WWE today, one who delivers in both the ring and promos, most people would probably think of Randy Orton.

The guy is a fierce competitor and has established a reputation as a "Legend Killer", one who uses dirty tactics, especially punting people in the head, but also uses his athletic abilities to dominate in the ring.

Randy Orton's heel character is one of the best in the WWE, and I know that I, along with many other WWE fans, would love a particular fantasy matchup, a matchup between Randy Orton and The Texas Rattlesnake, Stone Cold Steve Austin, in his prime.

Stone Cold Steve Austin used to be a dominating wrestler and one of the best heels in WWE history. You never had to worry about Stone Cold boring you to tears with his microphone skills or promos, and his matches were always intense ones.

I would love to see a match between these two wrestlers, with the angle of Randy Orton returning to his "Legend Killer" character and challenging the "Legend" Stone Cold Steve Austin. Stone Cold's best days as a wrestler are behind him, but I believe he could still make an impact in the ring, and deliver one hell of a promo.

I'm not sure if it will ever happen, but who knows?
