I mean, he has a point. Last week’s edition of Monday Night Raw was focused on Randy Orton, who was celebrating twenty years as part of the WWE. That is a number that almost no one reaches and it is very impressive to see anyone get that far. Orton has certainly earned the praise that he receives and he is still very good today. Now he is showing just how smart he can be too.
Last month, Orton served as a lumberjack in a match between Sami Zayn and Drew McIntyre. During the match, McIntyre hit a running flip dive onto the lumberjacks at ringside. Before McIntyre was diving, a fan filmed Orton laying on the ground away from the pile. The fan asked Orton why he was down and he said he didn’t want to get landed on, as seen in a video that has made its way to Twitter.
That’s a smart Viper. Check out Orton’s logical move:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that you don’t get to see very often but shows how Orton is rather smart at what he does. At the end of the day, it was unlikely that anyone would notice Orton missing from that kind of a big dive so him staying on the ground wasn’t going to be a big deal. The admission of what he was doing made it even better and it was a rather funny moment.
