Randy Orton’s latest heel turn has been received well by the fans so far. Orton’s beatdown on Jeff Hardy from Smackdown two weeks ago was a vicious sight to behold. Naturally a heel, Orton seems quite comfortable with his current run.
Wrestlevotes revealed on Twitter that the person behind Orton’s heel turn was none other than Orton himself. Apparently, the Apex Predator had been pushing for a character change for quite some time now.
Regarding Randy Orton’s heel turn, it has been something he’s wanted for a while now. Orton definitely pushed for it. I’m expecting him to be the top heel on SmackDown going forward. With him, Nakamura, Joe, Miz & Almas, SD has a strong mix of main event level heels.

It will be interesting to see where this run takes Orton’s character. Speculations suggest that he might enter the United States title picture and make it a three-way feud.
