I swear there was a time when cage matches didn’t involve the ref helpfully holding the door open for the competitors in a match. Maybe my brain made it up after seeing a match like the one at last week’s Raw where the referee helpfully assisted in the finish. Maybe one of the first cage matches I saw involved the cage door being locked. Maybe this one? Good idea to have the cage locked, but it’s a wonder I kept watching after that…
One week and several entries later, it’s time to announce the winner of the RKO Comic Contest! There were lots of hilarious submissions and it was a difficult choice to make, but the winner is…
by WookieeCookie D.!
(You’ll probably need to click to see the whole comic)
While the RKO Pictures joke was funny in its own right, this one really won me over with the little details like Randy peeping over at the end and the $9.99 that Randy had earned (is that even possible in Jeopardy?). But again, there were several hilarious comics and it was not an easy decision to make.
So congratulations to WookieCookie D. and thanks to all who participated! Maybe we’ll do it again next year?
All things must come to an end, and thusly, Randy Orton Week is over. We’ve had some fun, we’ve played with some dolls, solved some mysteries. It’s been good. And Randy Orton will live on… next Monday when I announce the winner of the Very RKO Comic Contest! To be honest, originally I was going to make the deadline Thursday night and announce the winner today, but that really wouldn’t allow for much time, SO the deadline is Saturday night and the winner is announced Monday. There have been some great submissions so far, so make sure to check back then!
Randy Orton Week is in full effect and it comes as no surprise that the Viper is stronger than ever now in the WWE. What’s that? He’s just stuck in a feud with Roman Reigns where he has to help the newcomer get good enough to main event Wrestlemania in less than a year? Well he needs our full support then, and what better way to show it than with a….. Randy Orton paper doll! Save the ten bucks you’d normally spend on an official WWE brand paper doll (Maybe they sell those. I’m not sure.) and download the Botched Spot one, complete with snake arms, cutsey tattoos, inappropriately small towel, and much more!
Warning: Paper doll may not actually “stand up”. Sturdy paper is recommended, maybe with a popsicle stick taped to the back.
It’s been a long time since Randy was last billed as the legend killer, but even when he was I found it to be untrue. Which legends did he beat that no one else did? What qualifies him to be a legend killer over, say, Triple H? They used to have a “legend killer” tour shirt that listed all of the “legends” that he “killed”. It included names like Sgt. Slaughter and RVD, whose qualifications as a legend are as debatable now as they were in 2003. My point is, that if randy were truly going to be a legend killer he’s got to up his game. Here are my humble suggestions:
Time to get busy, Randy!
It’s not easy coming up with fun and games for Randy Orton Week, but I recently remembered a staple of the funny pages that I hadn’t yet exploited: enter Randy Ortvestigator! He might need the help of a magnifying glass and sidekick to uncover mysteries like where his push went, where his buddy Dave Bautista went, and how long he’ll have to wait until the WWE give up on all the guys they’re trying to push now and go back to giving him the title. Maybe he can get some help from Slylock Fox!
