WWE: 5 Possible Hidden Story Lines That Developed out of Money in the Bank
WWE Money in the Bank was truly a great night and a great Pay-Per-View.
We all have our hopes and ideas about what will happen with the big winners of the night: CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Christian and Alberto Del Rio.
Many people throughout the WWE Universe are wondering how Daniel Bryan will finally get his star turn, what will happen with CM Punk and how long he will hold onto the belt.
There were also some lesser stories that could have developed that are flying under the radar.
Here are some story lines that I think will be played out in the coming weeks.
The End of a Friendship
Wendy and Adam Lambert
We have seen this numerous times throughout WWE history.
The break-up of Michaels and Jannety, the demise of Crime Tyme, the list of tag-team break-ups is endless.
We saw the start of this feud Friday on Smackdown with a match that Gabriel won. They had some more interaction during the MITB ladder match, and I think that won't be the last of it.
Justin Gabriel is ripe for a star turn and could someday be a solid upper mid-carder. A feud with a heel, Slater, could be just what he needs to get the ball rolling in that direction.
Usually when a tag team breaks up, one guy is about to be pushed to the moon, while the other will be gone in a few weeks.
That is unfortunate for Heath Slater. I'm a fan of the guy.
The Little Guy Gets Revenge
Sheamus Puts Sin Cara Through Ladder
This has been a feud that was possibly going to occur some months ago when Sin Cara made his debut, but it was dropped.
When Sheamus destroyed Sin Cara by putting him through a ladder, was that an easy way to get him off television for the wellness policy violation?
Or was it Sheamus remembering Sin Cara's debut, when he attacked Sheamus?
If you didn't see the injury, watch the video above. That's got to hurt.
When Sin Cara finally returns, I look for a short feud with Sheamus over this spot, where Sin Cara attempts to get revenge.
It will be interesting what happens with his character after the wellness policy violation. This story line could show us how much confidence the powers that be have in him.
A Monster Returns
The Big Show has had many face and heel turns throughout his career.
People love a friendly, loving giant. People also love a mean and angry giant.
The Big Show has been a happy-go-lucky guy of late.
While being face, he has been pushed around by the Corre and Alberto Del Rio. Now he's been destroyed by Mark Henry.
After being put on the sidelines with an injury at the hands of Mark Henry, could we see Show's darker side return?
For me, all signs point to yes. As he isn't getting any younger, his last run may be as a tweener.
I see the Big Show returning and doing whatever he has to do to get back at Mark Henry.
The Return of the Age of Awesome
With CM Punk now off television and the disappearance of the WWE Heavyweight Championship, a new champion must be crowned.
This Monday night on Raw there was an eight-man tournament to crown a new champion. After his injury at MITB, the Miz still defeated Alex Riley and Kofi Kingston.
Next week he will be taking on Rey Mysterio in the finals, with the winner being crowned the new champ.
I look for the Miz to go over on Mysterio, as WWE executives were rumored to be pretty happy with his last run.
He will probably start a feud with Alberto Del Rio soon, culminating at Summer Slam.
Or he may end up in a feud with CM Punk when he returns. Only time will tell.
The Search for Respect
A year ago, Wade Barrett was considered by many to be one of the hottest commodities in wrestling.
He was young, good in the ring for a big guy, and a great talker. He had the wrestling world ablaze with the Nexus.
Fast-forward a year, and he's on a who-knows-how-long losing streak.
He dropped the IC belt to Ezekiel Jackson after losing countless matches, Slater and Gabriel left him, he faces a jobber on Superstars, Kane beat him on Friday night and he didn't have much luck in the MITB ladder match.
At MITB, Barrett went toe to toe with both Sheamus and Kane in the match.
He attempted to get his former Corre-mates to help him.
He took a Cross Rhodes from Cody Rhodes that put him down most of the match, and a Brogue Kick from Sheamus that put him down the rest.
Wade Barrett is a man who needs respect, and I can see an angle developing.
Near the end of the MITB ladder match, he hit a Wasteland on Justin Gabriel, throwing him onto Heath Slater, nailing the two men who abandoned him when he needed them most.
