Randy Orton Responds To Steve Austin’s Critical Comments



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 PWMania.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.”
