Originally posted by OliverOrton got some serious cheers last night during his segments. I'm probably in the minority for liking Orton as a face, but he was on fire. Even when he was denouncing Punk as champ, people were cheering him on.
I wouldn't put much into that, really. He was a returning guy, in his home town, and he opened by mocking Beth, Santino, and Rhodes & DiBiase.
The NFL has been doing this gimmick for years. Every year a couple of days before the Super Bowl, a couple of players from each team will face off, playing out the Super Bowl via Madden or some other football game.
