I am writing this article to try and unravel the answer to a question, or should I say questions, that have been haunting me for sometime now.
Two of those questions are:
Who is carrying whom in Legacy?
Is legacy a burden to Orton?
We have all enjoyed watching Legacy raise havoc on the McMahon’s week after week, like a newer, younger version of the legendary DX, but somehow, somewhere things started to take a turn for the worse for Randy Orton.
Slowly but surely this once great future wrestling God started to be seen as weak, as cowardly and as someone who could not accomplish anything without the help of Cody Rhodes and Ted Dibiase.
Deny it all you want, but at one point have you not found yourself wishing that Tweedle dumb and Tweedle dumber would just fade back into the once promising team of Priceless?
I know I have, and on more than one occasion too.
As I sit and reflect on all that has transpired, I can’t get past the repetitive questions that seem to be growing in numbers, sneak out of my subconscious and tear away at the fragile threads of reality that is right before me.
Orton’s career as a pro wrestler, a force to be reckoned with, is slowly fading away as a dream does in the light of the new dawn.
The questions are getting clearer now, rising to the surface and slapping me in the face like the RKO that made Orton the dangerous superstar he was, and should still be.
Where are the pushes he so deserves, and has worked so hard to achieve?
Is he being held back?
Why is he not taken seriously?
Then the biggest question of all comes to the surface.
My God, no it can’t be...can it?
Has Orton's identity been lost in Legacy?
There, it has finally surfaced to the top...the harsh blinding truth.
I have finally come full circle, and have gotten off the merry-go-round of denial and doubt.
I now know that Orton, the once brightest star of all, has slowly been lost in Legacy.
The parasites that are Rhodes and Dibiase have been feeding off his fame, and leaving behind an empty shell of a once great wrestler.
It’s not too late. Orton can still be all he can be, it’s just time for a change.
Time to leave behind the mediocre wrestlers, and rise once again to the top...where he belongs.
