*Warning this article contains spoilers for this Friday night Smackdown*
Throughout 2009, WWE tried immensely to create new main eventers, with superstars like Sheamus and CM Punk as the success stories. While superstars like Kofi Kingston and John Morrison made an impact but didn't make the cut.
This Friday could be the beginning of something many WWE fans want to see, a new era.
No, I'm not talking about the attitude era, I'm talking about an era in which new main eventers are created.
Without any further due lets begin:
The Cryme Tyme Break-Up:
First off, in case you haven't heard, Cryme Tyme has finally split up after Shad attacked JTG with his new finisher that is similar to the Rock Bottom.
Afterwards, in a backstage interview, Shad announced there is no more Cryme Tyme because it's his time now.
Am I down for a Shad heel turn?
Hell yeah, if Shad's size is utilized properly, and he is repackaged as a monster heel, he could definitely be the next big thing.
NXT Roster now a heel stable?
Also on Smackdown, Kane came out and said he wanted to take on the entire NXT roster because he was bored.
A few NXT members came out and attacked Kane.
Could this be the foreshadowing of a NXT roster heel turn?
Well, If WWE does book the NXT roster as a heel stable they could, dare I say it, take over the WWE.
Jack Swagger —The All American American World Heavyweight Champion:
Does it get any bigger then this?
Jack Swagger, the Wrestlemania 26 Money In The Bank winner, cashed in his briefcase to defeat Chris Jericho to become the new World Heavyweight Champion.
Is it too soon for Swagger?
I for one don't think so, Swagger has everything a World Heavyweight Champion must possess; the look, the wrestling skills, and the charisma.
His lisp may be a problem, but with some mic skills training and speech therapy, expect 2010 to be Jack Swagger's year.
The 2010 WWE Draft:
Obviously, some serious brand changes need to be made with the 2010 draft so close, especially on Raw.
WWE needs to draft the likes of Raw superstars such as, Kofi Kingston, Ted Dibiase, and Evan Bourne to Smackdown, where the wrestling perspective is more appreciated.
Whereas, Smackdown superstars like John Morrison, Dolph Ziggler, and R-Truth, need to be drafted to Raw, where the entertainment perspective is more appreciated.
I honestly think if the brand changes I mentioned above were made, it would make both shows more entertaining and would do nothing but help further the careers of the superstars I mentioned.
With Shawn Michaels retiring and the likes of Triple H, The Undertaker, and Rey Mysterio taking some time off soon, WWE needs to create new main eventers and what better time to start then post-Wrestlemania?
Now all I can hope is that Raw follows Smackdown's footsteps and does the same.
Until next time, peace.
