These two are living proof that Teddy Long's New Superstar Initiative is working. These two are primed and ready for the big time...
And they got the fan base to prove it.
Everywhere that Ricky Ortiz goes, there is a militia of Ortiz Terror Towels not too far behind.
After showing that he indeed has the right stuff, it's obvious that it's time for him to make the move to...SmackDown!
Why the Anchor and not the Flagship?
Because Ortiz has the skills to go far in the WWE, but he needs the right opponents to prove that to.
For instance, Matt Hardy. Hardy has gloated about being better than everyone else, but his reign as ECW Champion came to a crashing halt at the hands of another member of the New Superstar Initiative, Jack Swagger.
Ortiz facing Hardy, Shelton Benjamin, MVP, even former ECW Champion Chavo Guerrero and winning those matches would make him just as popular on SmackDown as R-Truth.
As for Bourne, he should go to RAW since he's already migrated there anyway. Bourne is living proof that good things can come out of St. Louis.
And since St. Louis has been without a championship since the Age of Orton, it's only fitting to have Bourne come over and provide some much deserved competition.
And considering that Mike Knox left Bourne on the shelf for another few months, it's only fitting for Bourne to pick up where he left off...flying all over the place and continuing to wow the fans all over the world.
So to make it clear: Ortiz to SmackDown and Bourne to RAW.
But the biggest person who needs to switch brands is a shocker...
