Here We Go Again

Randy Orton is the heavyweight champion again, after taking Batista out again. And again and again we will have to end every other episode of Raw with Legacy doing a 3-on-1 beat down and a fade out with Randy Orton sneering in the face of the "victim." What I cannot figure out is why the face can never figure out to eliminate DiBiase and Rhodes, before facing Orton. We have seen it before, start Raw with a backstage take down of one of the parties and ultimately leaving the leader of the pack one-on-one with avenging superstar. Instead, WWE creative has Batista and Triple H chasing all three around the arena solo only to get caught in ring for a 20 minute beat down to end the show. Even the commentators stop talking.

Orton makes for a good heel, no doubt there. But I cringe to think for the next three to six months we have to deal with him as champion. WWE does well when they have a surprising champion have a reign, not just regurgitate another Triple Hype championship. Jeff Hardy, Eddie Guerrero, CM Punk, Rey Mysterio these are fun and exciting times. But it is boring when a the title gets passed around the same few same olds.
