WWE Raw Results, grades: Randy Orton’s next feud with Big Show
“Nature Boy” Ric Flair made his way to the ring to present Randy Orton as the Greatest Wrestler Ever, but before he introduced The Viper, he issued a warning to Nia Jax over her attack on Charlotte, claiming The Queen will be back and seeking revenge.
Flair put Orton over as the greatest star in WWE history. The Viper warned not to confuse nostalgia with legacy, equating his attacks on Edge and Christian as nostalgic. He said the fire he feels in the pit of his stomach is simply him establishing his legacy.
Orton said he is getting pleasure out of being The Legend Killer again, just in time for Big Show to interrupt the proceedings.
“I’m not going to let you glorify everything Randy Orton did,” he said, before vowing revenge for Edge and Christian. He said Orton is a parasite that latches on to everyone around him and said he and Flair will feel the wrath of a pissed-off giant.
Orton complimented Big Show before referring to him as a legend and then suggested it would be a shame for him to suffer the same fate as Edge and Christian. He finished with a warning, telling Big Show what happens from here is on him.
