• AEW Wrestler Defends Randy Orton & Baron Corbin, Says They’re Not Boring
During a Q&A at Starrcast II, Old School WWF Veteran and AEW Superstar Dustin Rhodes gave his views on SmackDown Superstar Randy Orton and RAW Superstar Baron Corbin.
Below is what Dustin said:
“I love Baron, I love Baron and I actually like his style. A lot of people think he’s stale and boring.
A lot of people think Randy Orton is stale and boring. Randy is the smoothest motherf***er in the business — smooth. He will not hurt you. He will not do anything to injure you, he will not do anything to injure you he is smooth and he looks good doing it and that is a key to being a good worker and longevity is taking your time.
A lot of people want [fast-paced action] when you get in those main event caliber matches you don’t have to go fast, fast, fast. You savor everything that the crowd is doing you play off of them.
You do your stuff here because some of the stuff you planned in the back might not work in a different town because they’re just not buying it. So you gotta switch sh*t on the fly and if you’re a good worker and you know how to do that and you’re in that spotlight it makes for magic and Randy is very good at what he does.”
