I loved the Rock/Rusev/Lana segment all around. Lana is mega hot and a damn fine mouthpiece. They should keep her managing longterm. Cesaro or even a heel turned Reigns in the future could be interesting clients. Just keep her away from the dead end divas division.

Speaking of, both top feuds there are awful. The Bellas are not top of division material. Paige vs AJ has dragged on too long for something that hasn't clicked.

I agree with Rusev being a beast. He's an interesting big man with a cool moveset. I'm pretty sure Show will put him over. He better ffs. Rusev though is more agile and faster in the ring than some smaller guys so taking on trucks like Henry and Show slows him down. 

It's too bad the E does not care more about the midcard and it's titles because it is one of the stronger roster points. Ziggler vs Miz was a well done feud and Mizdow is pretty funny.

Bray needs an almost total rebuild. They fucked up there. Harper is good too but does not have as much upside as Bray. The Wyatts should not have jobbed in so many tags to teams like Show/Henry.

I thought Summer Rae had potential. Decent worker who had good rivalry with Paige in NXT and is among the better female personalities they have. But now I fear she is .

What's funny is that her character has changed based on how we are supposed to perceive her in Total Divas.  The problem is, she comes off as being attacked and ganged up on by the shittier, bitchy divas.  Nattie talks shit about her constantly, and she's the face?  How the fuck does that work?

It's especially ironic when you consider that despite her rather high workrate, Nattie always struggles to get reactions unless she is in Bret Hart country. And sometimes even there.

They view the divas as throwaway gossip material. Cameron, Rosa, and Eva would not make one decent talent if you combined them. They do have some promising female NXT talents. But Flair's daughter is probably the only one they will allow to look decent.

WWE could be better.

I wanted to comment on the Rock/Bryan stuff.

WWE cant make a Rock, or an Austin etc. or eve a Bryan. Only the fans can.
WWE can just put guys out there, and even then, smarks complain about people being over pushed.

Because they won't push anyone the fans like! 

Cena is their top guy, who everyone over eight years old hates.  Orton is a good bad guy, but again, with the top spot limited to so few people, it doesn't work.

Finally we are building up each individual Shield member, but more needs to be done.  And it is too soon to tell if anything will come of it.  Look at what Bray Wyatt was when he began, and what he's become now.  Pointless feuds that did nothing for his character, and now he's a nobody again.

Rusev is a beast, and he's stuck fighting losers like Mark Henry and Big Show, two guys who already had a long career and don't need to be advanced by beating him.

Who left for Ruseve to fight and beat though

That on a high level but still can tap out to Rusev withouth their stocking going down

There are plenty of people Rusev can fight.  Think about that for a second.

I mean Reigns could do it, but I don't see that as a good fit.  Swagger made sense, but he lost so that's over.  Cesaro would be a good one.  Hopefully not Sheamus or Cena.  Big E is another guy, remember him?  I almost forgot him, because he vanished from TV.  Same with Ryback, who people were actually starting to like again.


There are plenty of people.

My bad, i was tired and babbled on.

I look at it like this.
WWE cant make a Rock, Austin, or Bryan. Only the fans can.
WWE can make an Orton, HHH, or lesnar.

The former are stars that transcend the business, that connect with the fans on a higher level than other guys. These stars become a part of pop culture.

The latter are stars the WWE tells us are the top guys. They get the title shots/runs, they headline Wrestlemanias. They have fans, of course, but not in the same way the former stars do.

Rusev could continue getting bigtime heat by beating Dolph Ziggler. The fans like Dolph and I'm betting the matches between them would be pretty sweet.

My best guess though is that after he beats Big Show, Rusev may be on to Shaemus. It's either Rusev or Miz for Shaemus next. I thought they would drag out Rusev eventually going over Show until at least HiaC. That could still go down but Rusev is going to face Show on Raw monday. Have to see how that turns out first.

Show will get his heat back by beating Mark Henry after their inevitable split.  :D

Meanwhile Rusev should be another step closer to becoming their big monster heel of the future. Main guy I am a bit worried about there is

So, I watched Smackdown, and, am I the only one worried whenever Sina talks his opponent up?
He did the same thing with literally everyone he faced, and each time he buried them hardcore after.

On a sidenote, the match of Sina v.s Ambrose has the contract hanging from above.
Perfect timing for Bray Wyatt to come in and snatch it up at the height of the match.
