THOUGHTS
John Cena was fired for all of three weeks, and his feud with Nexus leader, Wade Barrett, will finally come to and end…allegedly. I would’ve booked it to where Cena didn’t return to in-ring action until the Rumble, and maybe save a Barrett-Cena match for ‘Mania. but, it wasn’t like Vinnie Mac was gonna keep his #1 cashcow off of TV.

The Miz is every-FUCKING-where right now! CBS, TMZ, ESPN, you name it! I remember when he was on The Real World, and he was all about wanting to become a professional wrassler. the guy is living out his dream, I can dig that. Orton doesn’t need another title run (for now) let Miz retain it at TLC, beat Morrison at the Rumble, and then lose it at the Elimination Chamber PPV in February.

Daniel Bryan is the United States Champion, and he’s got the Bella Twins accompanying him to the ring. truly, he has no equal on the RAW roster, as witnessed by the fact that he doesn’t have a dance partner for this weekend’s TLC pay-per-view. he was already established on the indy circuit, before he even appeared on NXT. sooner, rather than later, he drops the US title, and elevates to ME status.

John Morrison vs. Sheamus has turned out to be a good feud (as long as JoMo isn’t required to cut any more promos) the rubber match is for a WWE title shot (more than likely at the Rumble) if ever they were going to pull the trigger on a Miz-Morrison title feud, this is the time.

Smackdown is in terrible shape these days. when you’re devoting half of your show to Kane vs. Edge, and all those ricoculous backstage segments. I’m sure both those guys (and probably Paul Bearer as well) dread having to tape them. that being said, I wouldn’t be surprised if they carry this feud up thru the Rumble.

Rey Mysterio vs. Alberto Del Rio is the prototypical old school vs. new school feud. Rey got the best of Alberto at Survivor Series, but a win by Del Rio would help cement his status as an elite heel

Dolph Ziggler has come a long way since his days on the Spirit Squad, and is now in his fifth month as IC champion. bonus points for being a fan of Asa Akira. his match with Kofi Kingston could end up being a show-stealer. it’s just a damn shame they had to throw Jack Swagger in the mix.

for the first time ever, they are doing a tag team tables match featuring four divas. I don’t see Beth Phoenix as a face, so maybe they have her turn on Natalya, by Glam Slamming her thru a table.
