This past Sunday at the Hell in a Cell PPV, I was very curious to see how they would handle the John Cena vs Randy Orton match.
Like many others, I thought that Orton would emerge victorious and as he continues to pull away from the Authority.
I felt, that a title match with Lesnar would open the door to Lesnar finally losing the title and Seth Rollins being able to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase.
This wasn't to be however as John Cena emerged from the demonic structure victorious with the chance of yet another match with Lesnar.
Whilst his first was tame yet tough to watch, the second was infinitely more entertaining but looking at it in the past view, it was ultimately pointless.
- Top superstar faces the wrath of the WWE after comments
- Current Champion's WWE days could be numbered
- Who should team with John Cena at Survivor Series?
Lesnar hasn't been seen since Night of Champions and doesn't show any real sign of returning for the upcoming PPV Survivor Series.
With the big PPV now confirmed for Survivor Series, the only question remaining is where will Randy Orton's allegiances lie come the show in St Louis.
His tensions with Rollins have spilt over in the last two weeks and Orton is seeming to pull away from the Authority more and more as the weeks pass by.
A hostile exit from the Authority and feud with Rollins would surely put Orton in the babyface category and that is something the Viper is not too keen on.
During a Twitter question and answer session with the WWE superstar, a fan mentioned that they didn't want him to turn face.
They claimed that it didn't suit him and Orton's response was very significant.
"Amen to that" - Randy Orton on not suiting a role as a babyface.
When the universe speaks
So Orton is clearly not the biggest fan of turning face and I for one, agree with him.
He has spent most of his WWE career as a heel and everything about him, his entrance music, nicknames and even his movement says heel.
When Randy Orton does finally retire or leave the WWE, he will surely always be remembered as a heel.
To turn Orton face may be detrimental to the WWE as he is one of their top ones, although he clearly does need a change.
The Authority appears to have run its course and may be in its final days but removing Orton from the picture doesn't have to lead him to becoming a face.
I think it would be better for the landscape of the WWE if Orton remained as a heel and that they would actually get the best out of him in that role.
