WWE Over the Limit 2012: Ranking Best Feuds for WWE Following Epic PPV
If there is one thing that a WWE pay-per-view will deliver nowadays, it is the promise of setting up top feuds for the next big event going forward.
At Over the Limit, there were a lot of moving parts put in place that will be resolved over the next few weeks, or will be dragged out for months because of their ability to provide quality storytelling and compelling matches.
While we already have some idea of where things are headed for No Way Out next month, we wanted to rank the feuds that the WWE has set up, or will set up, based on what happened at Over the Limit.
3. Christian vs. Cody Rhodes
While it was strange how the WWE just brought Christian back to be a face without bothering to tell anyone, at least he is healthy and able to go. That is good news for everyone involved, because he is one of the best workers the WWE has.
Cody Rhodes was stuck in a rut, losing matches that he should have been booked to win, and needed a drastic change. He did end up losing the Intercontinental title, but he is at least in a position to put on good matches with someone the WWE sees at his level.
This is not going to be a feud that gets a lot of time or even a prime spot on a pay-per-view, yet it will probably be one of the more entertaining things the WWE does because of Christian's in-ring ability and Rhodes' evolving persona on television.
2. Randy Orton vs. Chris Jericho
Which Feud Are You Most Excited To See Going Forward?
It says something about how invested we are in the world heavyweight championship when Sheamus' feud with Alberto Del Rio is the third-best feud on SmackDown.
Putting Orton and Jericho in the ring together is a stroke of genius by the WWE. It is a feud we have seen countless times in the past, but they have such great chemistry in the ring and such well-defined characters that it would be a shock to see this feud be botched.
Jericho probably isn't going to be around too much longer, so if he does go out, it's best to start a hiatus on a high note. Orton will bring out the best in him, and vice versa.
1. CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan
There were already high expectations for Punk and Bryan heading into their WWE title match at Over the Limit, yet they somehow managed to exceed all of them.
Given the way the angle has been set up on television this week, Kane could end up being added to this feud to make it a triple-threat match at No Way Out. As awful as that sounds, the WWE should at least take notice of what Punk and Bryan have done already and let them carry the match on their own.
It is sad that this match was not given the main event spot at Over the Limit, since it would have been the best way to close a pay-per-view. In today's WWE, we should just be happy when a championship match delivers in the way you would expect and hope we get to see more of it.
