Sheamus As World Champ, Thoughts On Last Night's Raw Ending, Main Eventers On Smackdown, WWE NXT

Written by Richard Gray on Oct 4, 2011 - 10:45:59 AM

With his reactions lately do you think Sheamus is building up to a title run? And do you prefer his work as a heel or a face?

WWE is certainly building Sheamus back up but since he's already went under to Mark Henry, a title run doesn't appear to be in the immediate future (although it's certainly possible). Sheamus has proved he can work as both a heel and a babyface and I feel he's someone that can be a top guy for years to come. I prefer whatever is drawing the best crowd reactions and respect him for getting over as a hated heel and a loved babyface.

What did you think about the concluding segment of last night's Raw Supershow? I thought it was well-executed and got everyone wondering what will happen next. Your thoughts?

The conclusion of last night's Raw Supershow worked just how it was planned. It was something different that made many people wonder, what next? We've received a lot of questions asking where some top names were during the "vote of confidence" and I haven't heard as of this writing why they were not used. Interest was sparked and I am anxious to evaluate the ratings when they come out, however, the true test will be the audience for next week's show.

Besides Randy Orton, Mark Henry, Christian, and Sheamus; who else is left on Smackdown that could be elevated to the main event and become a possible World Heavyweight Champion contender? Other than Cody Rhodes, I can't see anyone else getting a push to the main event level, what are your thoughts?

You just named a large portion of the current main event scene on Smackdown. Remember only a handful of workers can be in the main event at one time but the obvious names that are currently out would include Kane and The Undertaker (both still technically Smackdown workers). Big Show, a Raw worker, is slated to return on this week's show and appears to be scheduled for something with Mark Henry. As for names outside of the obvious I don't think you can count out Wade Barrett, Brodus Clay (who they are even running promo videos for), Ezekiel Jackson and the long-lost Money in the Bank winner Daniel Bryan.

What do you think of the idea that WWE NXT should be a wrestling-only brand? Why not have a yearly amateur draft like the NFL and once a year only the most talented and established superstar will get drafted to the main roster?

While I respect your creativity I think WWE NXT should be scrapped altogether. It feels like WWE lost interest when they couldn't find new TV clearance [in the United States] for the show and have continued on a wacky course with the current season of NXT Redemption airing on their official website. What you have described sounds more like what the company is currently doing with Florida Championship Wrestling.
