For years now in WWE, guys like Orton, HBK, HHH, Batista, Mysterio, Edge, Cena, Jericho and Taker have been dominating the main event scene on both brands and have drawn millions of dollars for WWE PPVs.
Consider that Taker’s getting old now and is not looking like the man he was at WM25 when he put on the match of what was in my mind the match of the decade.
HBK and Batista are gone and do not look like they are returning any time soon.
HHH has several injuries and there is no indication on his date of return. Mysterio also has picked up a couple of injuries as of late and is need of surgery.
Jericho has left WWE for a while so he can tour with his band (Fozzy). His age has to be a concern and has been jobbing to JoMo and Evan Bourne.
Edge has recently torn Achilles tendon and returned prematurely, and on top of that his feud with Orton only lasted a month and a bit. There are several rumours surrounding his health.
Cena and Orton have been on top of their game and have built up of plenty of injuries. They deserve and maybe in need of a rest. Orton in particular has had a shoulder problem.
I think it is very fair to say a lot of the younger guys really need to step it up a notch.
Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler, Wade Barrett, Daniel Bryan, and JoMo have all looked really strong recently.
Whilst other talented younger stars like Jack Swagger, Zack Ryder, Evan Bourne, and Ted DiBiase have been lacking a win and even presence in a match.
Let's analyze these guys...
