WWE's New Guard: Dawning of a New Era
It is finally here!!! The moment we all have been waiting for. The passing of the torch, the dawn of the new era in the WWE. No more older guys clinging to the top spots like Big Show,Kane,HHH, and Taker. Plus all the old guard off tv finally. The time is here, and the reason I didn't mention Cena and Orton is because they still have a lot to offer. They will fit nicely with the Sami Zayn, AJ Styles, and Cesaro there is no doubt about it. Also beating Cena will still mean something. Same thing with "The Viper" Randy Orton, a multiple time world champion. It hit me last night watching WWE Monday Night RAW that this is the new WWE I have been dreaming of for such a long time. From start to finish it was filled with exciting and fresh storylines and matches .Enzo and Cass are absolutely over big time and can work.The Bullet Club's Gallows and Anderson are legit badasses and carry an air of big time superstars.Their interactions with AJ and Reigns is intriguing to say the least. Kevin Owens looks to be on the verge of making a true enemy of Shane McMahon. KO is a wonderful heel and Chris Jericho is looking better than ever. Jericho gets better with age. AJ Styles is slowly going over as the number face in the company as Roman slowly turns heel. Dean Ambrose is so cool and so reliable in the ring. Sami Zayn shows every week that he is the best wrestler in the world. The Miz is absolutely nailing it with Maryse as the most annoying heel and is finally getting the spotlight he so deserves. Baron Corbin is the new monster heel. Convincing and his finisher is the best in the business. Dolph Ziggler is a true team player. Apollo Crews is introduced perfectly and he will be a big time money player. Imagine a feud with Neville for the US Title. Zack Ryder is becoming relevant and a fan favorite again. The Vaudevillains are making an impact. The Usos are the best team in the company, but could benefit from a heel turn. The New Day is the hottest act in the company right now.Cesaro looks poised to finally become a main event player .Seth Rollins is close to a return. Imagine Cesaro vs Rollins for the WWE World Title. Bray Wyatt and his family as faces will be so over. Bray has the potential to be a main eventer given the right push.Sadly being injured will derail those plans for now. There are still a few issues though that I would love to see being addressed. Kalisto should remain to work with Sin Cara in the Lucha Dragons.The US title should be defended on Smackdown exclusively and I think a guy like Sami Zayn could be a great champion and guarantee a 4 star match every week on Smackdown. Ryback is another guy that deserves better. He could be a great opponent for Corbin. Sheamus is a very reliable big guy .Rusev should be in the hunt for the IC title. Alberto is a talented veteran that could help get younger guys get over. Cody Rhodes is also another guy in need of a revamp.The tag team division is now on fire! Primo and Epico will be back soon to join New Day ,Vaudevillains, Enzo and Cass, League of Nations ,Lucha Dragons, Usos, Dudleyz, Ascension, Gallows and Anderson, Golden Truth,Social Outcast. That's a deep division.The women division is deeper than ever.The only thing to do now is to stay the course and organically let the guys get over. The future is now finally.
