By now, most know the situation surrounding Evan Bourne.
On Jan. 17, he was suspended 60 days from WWE. It was his second wellness policy in the past year, and it was a major blow to to Air Boom.
Him and Kofi Kingston quickly dropped the tag team titles to Epico and Primo at a live event. A few days later, we all learned why such a drastic move was made.
Either way, my "it" girl, Rosa Mendes, is now leading the champs to a nice run, and Kofi seems to have moved on. He is now being partnered up with R-Truth.
Both Kofi and Truth are heading to Team Teddy at Wrestle Mania. That much is certain, and I like the spot for each man.
However, where does that leave Evan Bourne now that his suspension is up?
The perfect place would be in the Money in the Bank ladder match in Miami. However, there is no need for such a a match this year, as I wrote about last month.
I would be shocked if Evan was thrown into a singles feud during the next two weeks. With Mania in 13 days, there is next to no chance he is given a big spotlight now.
The only option left to make it on the main card is the battle over the general manager's position. With Teddy Long looking for a few more talents, why not bring in Evan Bourne?
Some are speculating Rey Mysterio may be healthy enough for a tag match. He would be kept limited but also help the star power of the match. It would make sense.
If Mr. 619 is not ready, the next best thing is Bourne.
Of course, the only road block in all of this is if WWE wants to reward him with a nice WrestleMania paycheck so soon after his recent issues. That is the main issue here.
In my opinion, he shouldn't come back until April 2 at the earliest. That is just my belief. Giving him a nice Mania slot would be disappointing on many, many levels.
Remember, this was not Bourne's first Wellness violation. It was his second in only a few months time. That is troubling and something to watch out for in the future.
Let him stay off WWE TV for two more weeks, then see where his head is at. Find out if he is willing to be a team player. Give the man some time to think about his future in WWE moving forward.
Tonight is the first live show since Evan was eligible to return. Will he even come back at all? Is he going to lose short matches upon returning? Does he find himself a match at WrestleMania? Let me know.
