Randy Orton is certainly one of the most outspoken wrestlers in WWE, and he hasn’t been shy about sharing his opinion of NXT.
Orton has indicated in the past that the NXT style of matches isn’t his particular cup of tea, and he elaborated more on his issues with NXT during a recent interview with Sports Illustrated.
The Viper noted that he can’t stand seeing too many false finishes in a row, and he also said that he thinks NXT wrestlers are addicted to a certain chant.
“I can’t stand when I see 10 false finishes in a row, where a guy takes a powerbomb and then he’s up and then he’s delivering a knee, and then the other guy ducks, and then it’s boom, boom, boom, boom. It’s too much. But because these guys are capable of doing it, because the fans are going to chant ‘Fight For-Ev-Er!’ and all that cr#p, they’re going to keep doing it because they think that’s what they’ve got to do to get that reaction. But sometimes the fans don’t need to make noise to be reacting. Sometimes they’re sitting and they’re watching with their mouths open, not saying a word, and they’re invested and paying attention. They want to see what you’re going to do or say next. That’s the disconnect between a lot of the main roster guys and the younger guys in NXT. They’re just hungry, they’re addicted to that chant from the crowd. They want the roof to come off the top of that building every single spot that they do.'”
