Orlando Jordan


Hey Scott,

what’s your opinion on this guy? Started off as a Velocity jobber guy, suddenly joins JBL’s cabinet, wins US title via fluke (from Cena!?), gets buried while losing the title and tons of rematches against Benoit, flounders away, loses against Warrior in Spain (wtf), has that ridiculous oversexed gimmick in TNA, does nothing afterwards….what a strange career

​I can’t say as I’ve thought of Jordan in many years, but the scandal with the teenage boyfriend seemed to kill him off in the business once and for all. I had the misfortune of sitting through an Orlando Jordan US title defence at a Smackdown taping in 2005, and I assure you everyone in the crowd was like "Who is this jobber and why is he champion?" ​
