JR. I was reading your blog about the ADR match at SS, and it made me think about something. As I am sure you know from my previous questions, I have been a fan for a long time… going back to the mid 80’s. If memory serves me correctly, it seems like back then the heels and the babyfaces were pretty well defined. You would have people turn occasionally (Think the guys going in and out of the horsemen or the big Hogan turn in the mid 90’s), but it was a rarity. Now it seems like guys turn back and forth every day. ADR is the perfect example. He went from heel, to face, and back to heel again all in the last few months alone. I was wondering if you could share your thoughts on why we are suddenly seeing so many people turning back and forth so often and whether or not it is a good thing. Also… any idea why they haven’t let Orton turn yet in spite of the fact he has made no secret of the fact he wants to go back to working heel?
Decision makes, due to the lack of main event depth, are constantly looking for the best roles for their top guys. ADR as a fan favorite was an experiment in my view but he’s a better villain.
