How about this for a twist: Paul Heyman as the manager of both the WWE Champion and the World Heavyweight Champion at the same time?

I know that might be a little hard to swallow, but what if it were to happen? And if the WWE hasn't already thought of adding more to the mix of the unholy union of CM Punk and Heyman, then why not throw a little more gasoline on the already smoldering fire?

The "Voice of the Voiceless" joining in evilness with the man who cannot seem to shut up makes perfect sense in the WWE.

It also makes sense, especially with the sudden "retirement" of Brock Lesnar. And adding to Heyman's stable of evil could only make the end of the summer that much more scorching.

This is where we introduce the "Viper" Randy Orton.

Orton could be the best elixir for the World Title Match and do more than Kane did in the recent “threesome” of CM Punk, Daniel Bryan and Kane or Punk, John Cena and Big Show.

And the WWE is just crazy enough (are you listening?) to pull this off.

While Orton has no real “angle” in the company right now, coming back from his suspension and trying to rebuild his image, the spot the creative team has put him in is rather good (it’s amazing how they do that when wrestlers are out of action for various reasons).

And since the Sheamus/Alberto Del Rio angle is as stale as three-day bread, Orton’s ability to reign in the fans and the fact he is a better performer in the ring than both Sheamus and ADR makes him the logical choice.

With a twist.

I have been waiting to see what happens with Orton once he returned to the company. Where would he stand? How would he handle the changes in culture of the company?

Plenty has gone on in the last 100-plus days. But the title situation at the top has not. While CM Punk has changed his stripes and appears to have joined forces with Heyman, Sheamus, although looking good of late in his title defenses, has looked average against ADR.

And we all hate the storyline.

Orton adds drama. Orton adds mystery. Orton adds ability.

And in this case, a third wheel, unlike the WWE title match at SummerSlam, is a very good thing. Fans are tired of seeing the same match between Sheamus and ADR and possibly that little runt Ricardo Rodriguez (Tattoo).

And frankly, there is nowhere else for Orton on the ladder and he should be a part of Night of Champions.

So if the WWE brass is listening and there is a way to make it happen, let’s see some creativity. And if Orton were to win the title, turn heel and align himself with the likes of Heyman, then the WWE just got a whole lot more interesting.

And things can only get better from there.
