Steve Austin offered a critical assessment of Randy Orton’s character performance during an interview for the latest issue of Power Slam, which was published this afternoon on Wrestling-Edge.com.
When asked to name which wrestlers he believes can evolve into “money-drawing players” for WWE, Austin said of The Viper, “His promos need work, and right now, he’s a little one-dimensional. The crowds are digging him, but there’s still another step on the ladder for him to climb to.”
Orton responded to Austin’s remarks this evening on Twitter with a vow.
He wrote, “Austin is right, there is still room for me to move up the ladder. And I will. Watch me.”
Austin echoed similar sentiments for the other World Title loser at Night of Champions, Alberto Del Rio.
“[He is] another one who needs to work on his promos-I don’t like them worth a shit right now-but he has great ability,” said Austin.
“He just needs to add a few pieces to the puzzle.”
Austin was shown the original article on Twitter and responded, “I dont believe I ‘ripped’ Alberto Del Rio…a Gino Hernandez comparison is a complement…and yes, his promos need work.”
