Is R-Truth Ready For The Main Event?

Victor JordanCorrespondent IJanuary 31, 2010

Many people have been wondering rather or not R-Truth deserves to be put in the Main Event scene in the WWE,which leads to the question is he even ready?

For those of you that don't remember "The Truth" wrestled in the WWE before during the WWF,as K-Kwik, and he had a run as WWF Hardcore Champion,but his stint with the company was short lived, as he was released soon after.

Truth would then join a number of Independent Circuit Federations,until eventually signing with TNA Wrestling under going his real name of Ron "The Truth" Killings.

During his few year or so in TNA,he was arguably one of (and probably the biggest star in TNA before Christian came in) the hottest stars on the roster,and had a huge fan base apart of the 3 Live Kru with Konnan & B.G James (Formerly Road Dogg),and the trio won the NWA World Tag Team Championships in TNA and defended it under the freebird rule,and Truth also won the NWA World Heavyweight Championship twice during his TNA run.

Truth also held the newly re-instated TNA World Tag Team Championships with NFL Star Adam "Pacman" Jones,during his final days in TNA.

In late 2008 Killings would re-sign with the WWE,and under go a new persona/ring name as R-Truth,and would make his WWE re-debut on Aug. 29, 2008. And since then has had a number of great matches facing the likes of Kenny Dykstra,and even Shelton Benjamin for the WWE United States Championship around the time.

Last Friday night on SmackDown we saw one thing we probably never thought we've seen,at least not yet,but on the latest edition of Friday Night SmackDown we saw R-Truth defeat a top Main Event heel in Chris Jericho cleanly.

It was already reported that the reason Truth began feuding with CM Punk a few months ago was to get Truth over as a Main Event star,and judging by what went down this Friday night, WWE has seen the feud with Punk as a success.

I don't know if Truth will ever be World Chammpionship/WWE Championship material,but I do see him being the next Rowdy Roddy Piper, a guy who could draw huge in the Main Event, but never capture the big one, and I see Truth going in that direction eventually.
