Independent wrestling fans bashing Randy Orton

In responses, independent wrestling fans are bashing Randy Orton. He can be an easy target despite being one of the biggest names in WWE. Many are pointing out that Orton does not always put on the best matches. They note that there are plenty of independent wrestlers that can outperform Randy in the ring. Some are even pointing out that Orton has a very dull character and is not as much of a draw as he thinks that he is. For what it is worth, Randy has put on plenty of good matches. He is also a draw.
