WWE Stock Watch: Mark Henry, Sheamus, Rob Van Dam; Whose Stock is Up?

Alfred KonuwaFeatured ColumnistJune 28, 2013

WWE’s rising and falling stars change on a dime.  One bad week of booking and once-promising acts become yesterday’s news. 

This is certainly not the case with Mark Henry, who is currently the hottest challenger to a WWE championship since CM Punk of 2011.  Coming off an Oscar-worthy retirement speech that proved to be a ruse, Henry is clearly the best heel in the WWE. 

Daniel Bryan is WWE’s best babyface, with multiple shows being built around his likeness.  Bryan’s clean win over Randy Orton to end Raw makes him an immediate favorite to carry a Money in the Bank briefcase, which could lead to a feud against top dog John Cena. 

Sheamus has been more effective in false commercials than in the ring, which does not bode well for a career that essentially began with the Celtic Warrior atop the WWE as its champion. 

Randy Orton is perennially treading water, but his stock has risen on the strength of a feud against Daniel Bryan.  The same cannot be said about Dolph Ziggler, who seems far removed from the memorable night when he cashed in the world championship Money in the Bank briefcase.
