The fans of the WWE at the moment are at a crisis point. We love our favorite "Superstar" but at the same time are frustrated with the lack of choice.
We see the same matches week after week, and if you like someone outside that, then you just watch hoping for a glimpse of your Superstar.
The WWE has a wide variety of talent (although they are releasing quite a few Umaga, Mr Kennedy, and some developmental talent as well) but they are not putting them to their best uses. Current rumors have Batista with an injury, however, he still won the WWE championship last night, resulting (if what the rumors state are true) in a problem for the writers of the WWE, they now need to look at giving the title over to someone else.
Will it be Cena, Orton, or someone new?
I personally am hoping for the someone new angle, if just to mix it up. I would love to see Matt Hardy wearing the belt, he has done his time, paid his dues, can actually move in the ring, and is very capable of great mic work.
Do I see this happening? No. What I see happening is the furthering of Ted Dibasie Jr. or the return of Triple H.
Ted Dibasie Jr. has a new film coming out later in the year and is expected to have a face turn prior to the release to allow him to promote the film; this would be the perfect place for that turn to occur although it may be a little reminiscent of Evolution in 2004.
Also, is Dibasie Jr. ready to main event at this stage? I don't think so. He is getting there and with each week his face side is being exposed, but at the moment he is just not a big enough name to carry the title, I think we may see him as the runner up in the battle for the belt but hopefully not wearing it just yet.
MVP lost the US title last week will he replace it with the next one up. No. MVP is great, good moves in the ring, can use the mic and is building popularity with the crowds. But as yet he does not have the following for the WWE title, I expect he will have a one on one title rematch with Kofi within the next two or three weeks (30 day rematch clause) and take back the US title.
Will this be the night of return for Triple H? I hope so. (I have to admit I am a Triple H mark and have been for more years then I care to count.) But I do not want to see Triple H come out and win the belt his first night back.
It would mean he has not gone a show without the title and again, as a Triple H fan, I like that idea, but as a WWE fan it does not appeal to me. Personally I am still hoping to see Stephanie come back as Raw GM for a new McMahon-Helmsley era. Simply because it would be fun to see the fall out, and how it would work 10 years later. (Also it would get rid of Vickie, something I am not opposed to.) But I just don't see it occurring, not tonight anyway.
So that leaves the question of who becomes the new WWE champion. I really see it as a battle between John Cena and Randy Orton.
They are the two big names within RAW at the moment, and let’s face it, WWE is not exactly letting a lot of fresh talent come up through the ranks at the moment.
Orton has just came off a six-week (seriously has it only been six weeks? It seemed longer) run as champ, while Cena has not held the title for six weeks so I think we will see another Cena run, at least for a few weeks until Triple H makes a return and becomes champion at The Bash.
