Paul Heyman, JBL and 3 Other Former WWE Superstars That Should Come Back
The WWE is going through a series of changes right now: making the transition from two brands to one, searching for the wrestlers to lead the new wave, etc. But I think we would all like to see wrestlers from the past return. Whether it's for an extended stay or for a short visit, there are some comebacks that we are always up to seeing.
Kevin Nash returned to the canvas recently, and rumors persist about the return of "Hardcore Legend" Mick Foley. So what other wrestlers would we like to see come back to the "E"?
Here's my list...
Sure, his character was basically the predecessor to Hornswaggle, but that didn't make him any less entertaining. His spot imitations of The Rock, Stone Cold, Triple H and more made him a crowd favorite. But underneath it all, Eugene could put on a good match. His funny character just made it easy to like him.
If he came back, I could see him being a sidekick of someone like John Cena or Randy Orton. He could bring a little humor to their characters, which they need. (Sorry, but those guys are starting to get a little stale.)
Whether he was a New Age Outlaw, an "Ass" Man or just "The One," Billy Gunn was a phenomenal performer in the ring and charismatic outside of it. He was a key part of the "Attitude" Era as a member of DX. He also had some solo success, but not as much as some would have expected.
I think Gunn has one more WWE run left in him, especially with fellow "Attitude" era buddy Triple H pulling the strings now. I mean, can you really leave your WWE legacy stained with the Billy and Chuck love story?
The guy who appeared on the fast track to the WWE and World Heavyweight belt but suddenly saw his push cut short. I liked MVP better as the cocky million-dollar heel when he first came into the company. He still has all the intangibles. The man is a solid worker in the ring and has the personality some currently in the company are lacking.
I know MVP left on his own, but WWE owes him a strong run if he ever decides to come back. That would be "ballin'."
John Bradshaw Layfield
Arguably the best heel in the last decade for the "E," injuries slowed down and ultimately cut his career short. But the the "longhorn millionaire" could have an impact today.
He can come in for a short-term program to be the mouthpiece for an up-and-coming heel who can't quite draw main-event type heat. Or he could even put over a face that needs that signature breakthrough feud.
I could give you a laundry list of reasons why this man should be with the WWE right now. But rather, I'll only give you a couple. He could really play well with the edgy storylines WWE has been incorporating with CM Punk vs. the company. His writing would take it to another level and possibly ignite a new "Attitude" Era.
In front of the camera, his promos are classic, and he automatically elicits hate from an arena full of wrestling fans by just walking out to the ring.
He created many of the greatest wrestlers and some of the best wrestling moments in history. He still has so much more to give to the business.
Why is this man not in the "E" right now? Anyone?????
