WWE are currently pushing the young crop of stars in the business. This is something many fans have wanted for a long time. Mainly because they think the main events have got stale and boring.
Whilst I am a fan of some of the top guys such as Triple H and Batista (although many are not) I do agree the main events need to be changed.
Instead of Randy Orton Vs Batista why not MVP vs. Randy Orton or even Mr Kennedy vs. MVP for the WWE Championship. And on Smackdown (currently the No. 1 wrestling show) why not John Morrison vs. Edge or Shelton Benjamin vs. Chris Jericho?
The main reasons for WWE pushing the young stars i believe are because they too have realised they need to change it up, and because they do not have that one BIG star that all the fans love and don't have a bad thing to say about.
The two biggest babyfaces in the business currently are John Cena and Jeff Hardy (both of which i don't have to much of a problem with). These two stars have many critics and are no way near the standard guys like The Rock and Austin were. WWE fans cant let go of the era of The Rock and Austin.
Fans are hoping soon someone will come along and excite them as much as those guys did. Yes there are Undertaker and Shawn Michaels but these guys work on a part time basis and cant lead the company as champions
Cena has critics, some of which will go as far as to show up to events with t-shirts showing their hatred. Cena is also the one which helped turn our favourite wrestling show PG. And Jeff Hardy does not win everyone over because of his attitude.
Hopefully, with the push the young guys are now getting someone will come along who will make the fans worship everything they do, the way fans did with Austin.
Personally, I am a big fan of John Morrison and currently love watching him everytime he is in the ring.
Also Shelton Benjamin always puts in a good performance and is good on the mic. Mr Kennedy is brilliant on the mic and hopefully can stay injury free. The Miz has proved a lot of people wrong. Dolph Ziggler has stepped up and impressed a hell of a lot of people.
There are many more stars ready to shine the list can go on, Kofi Kingston, MVP and CM Punk are some other names. I hope within the next few months these guys step up and prove they should be in the main event.
