WWE: 5 Guys Who Can Benefit From Rock's Return
So before anybody gets the wrong idea from the title; it is not how it sounds. I am talking to the jobbers that could benefit from this—not calling the Rock a jobber.
Now that that's out of the way, let's get to it.
Since nobody really knows how long the Rock will be back, I am going to take the positive side and say he is gonna be here a while.
If the Rock does stay, he could really do some good for the guys that are not really getting anything.
Who couldn't benefit from a victory of a former champ?
Alex Riley has pretty much been Miz's man cheerleader since day one. Now I know throwing him in the mix with someone like Rock would be like matching an 8-year-old against Big Show—but imagine what good it could do.
A-Rye has some good mic skills, but his wrestling skills need help. Who better to help than the most electrifying man in sports entertainment?
The set up for it is a perfect fit, too. The Rock mentioned two people in his return—Miz and Cena.
So they could set it as they walk into each other in the back and Rock throws out some burns about how all Riley does is wipe Miz's ass or something to that effect.
That's a great start to helping a guy the WWE hasn't really had much out for.
David Otunga is a man that pretty much everybody says is only hanging on to Nexus. Once Nexus is done, Otunga is at best a mid-card guy, at least right now.
With a little help from Rock, there is no telling what could come to be from Otunga.
This feud could be started rather easily with just a simple smack talk from Rock. Then Punk says he doesn't have time to deal with Rock but Otunga can do it.
Morrison has everything that is needed to be a great main-eventer...almost.
Five words: Mic skills. (That's a joke.)
There is no doubt Rock is one of—if not the best—on the mic. Morrison could possibly be taken under Rock's wing until after Mania because it doesn't really seem that he will be doing anything then.
During this time, there's no telling how much Morrison can improve on the mic.
Mason Ryan is huge, and right now that's about all he has going for him.
If you saw the tag match on Raw, you can see he needs improvement and I don't believe we have seen what he can do on the mic.
It is the perfect set up for a first-time guy being trained by the great one.
Dibiase would be my favorite pick for Rock to help out.
He is one of those guys who pretty much reminds me of Christian—he has everything needed but isn't doing anything.
One feud with the Rock and a few clean wins could jump his stock.
