7 Things That Must Happen in the WWE After Survivor Series
Now that we all have had a chance to rest, recuperate and begin thinking about turkeys and family celebrations, we can all put Survivor Series in our rear-view mirror and look towards TLC in the next few weeks.
Let's all hope the last PPV event of the year will provide the "bang" we all need to get us through to the Royal Rumble and a potential date between CM Punk and The Rock.
Let the holiday festivities begin.
With that said, the WWE appears to be moving forward with great matches, great storylines (except for AJ/Vickie/John Cena) and the idea that Punk's title reign will continue through the new year.
But it being the time of year where anything can happen, who knows what Vinnie Mac has in store for us.
Here are a few things that need to happen moving forward in the next 40 days.
Tamina and AJ Must Get in the Ring
I loved the idea of Tamina making an appearance at the PPV. I especially loved the idea that maybe she was now part of Vickie Guerrero's stable or was acting as a bodyguard in her presence.
Very Mr. Hughes of her, if you ask me.
The size difference and the fact AJ is so vocal and Tamina is silent as a mouse is all too great for WWE fans. If Vickie won't get in the ring with the little beauty, then maybe the confrontation between AJ and the larger, more dominant Tamina will help revitalize an already growing divas division.
Kofi Kingston Needs a Push Toward the Title
I know it's hard to see this with Ryback, John Cena and the invasion of NXT.
Kofi Kingston is as exciting as he has ever been right now, and the WWE should capitalize on this quickly. The fact he has the Intercontinental Title should mean something in this business.
Also, since there is no chance right now that we could see Kingston be anything other than a face in this company, CM Punk provides the best opportunity for him to take a crack at the WWE title, at least right now.
Brad Maddox Somehow Needs to Be Part of the NXT Invasion Angle
The WWE is not going to allow Maddox's moves over the course of the past month to go unnoticed.
The fact that Reigns, Rollins and Ambrose have been a fixture this week on WWE telecasts show they are going to be prominent in the coming year. Maddox, who looks like a baby face with a day-old beard, should be the leader or part of the affiliation.
Maybe they also should look to getting a manager, someone who has a history with dealing in "fours."
Ric Flair, anyone?
Randy Orton Must Make the Heel Turn Now
This should have happened when he was in the Survivor Series match. The punt should have gone through the uprights.
It seems we are all waiting for the eventual change, and it hasn't happened. Are we going to be teased like we were with John Cena (and Kane) and nothing ever comes of it?
Orton is such a great performer when he is in his heel role, and now that The Miz is a face, the time is right.
Make the move, Randy.
Paul Heyman Needs Another Associate
Hmm. I can think of many. Brock Lesnar, Big Show, Randy Orton and even Damien Sandow.
I still love the idea of Orton and CM Punk on the same team. It just makes sense to me. But truthfully, the idea of having Punk and Big Show as the two title holders in the company on the same page would blow the roof off the WWE.
Lesnar is the obvious choice, but a little change will do us all some good. The WWE has a habit of being predictable. A little oddity every once in a while is good.
More Michael Cole and JBL
Some way, the WWE needs to pair these two together more often.
The back and forth at the PPV was exceptionally good. JBL is a natural, and the lead by Cole is becoming better and better each week.
Jerry Lawler is a welcomed addition back to Raw, but JBL is so much better at analysis.
An End to the Cena/AJ Saga
John Cena isn't that great of an actor to begin with. Let this angle die, please.
It makes Cena look weak, makes AJ look like a teenie bopper and makes the whole sham look like a TNA rip off.
The WWE is better than that.
And while Cena and Dolph Ziggler could be a great feud, it needs to be fought for better reasons.
Make it stop!
