With Dolph Ziggler as World Heavyweight Champion will Big E Langston and AJ Lee get separate singles pushes with a different gimmick?
The pairing of Big E Langston and AJ Lee with Dolph Ziggler currently remains but it provides an interesting angle when they split. AJ plays the wildcard while Big E Langston could grow “sick of the shadow” and try and challenge Ziggler for the title. Obviously this would be a major push for Langston and it would be up to the company and how over he is before any decision is made. Presently, WWE is pushing Ziggler going forward with Alberto Del Rio seeking a rematch and Jack Swagger not out of the mix.
We all know how the CM Punk-Undertaker feud played out and ended, but my question is: had it not been for the untimely and unexpected death of Paul Bearer, where was WWE going with the feud and what was in store for it?
This is the million-dollar question that no one knows the answer to. I’m sure WWE would have come up with an angle where CM Punk claimed he was “the best in the world,” so he was “better than the streak.” The unexpected death of Paul Bearer provided the build for a program that ended in a stellar match. While some were offended, I actually loved it and many that knew Paul Bearer well said he would have loved it. It’s also worth noting that WWE went out of their way to clear things with Bearer’s children, which was a nice gesture.
Is Fandangoing the next Harlem Shake?
When the Houston Texans Cheerleaders released a video where they were Fandangoing, I wondered if this had enough steam to become the next Harlem Shake. Only time will tell but it’s worth taking a look at the opportunity this provides Fandango. WWE booked him over Chris Jericho at Wrestlemania and thanks to last week’s rowdy crowd, everyone is talking about Fandango because of his theme music. WWE kept him involved in the main event of last week’s Smackdown, so this week’s Raw is an important show for him. Fandango can work, everyone just wondered how this gimmick would get over. It’s taking on a life of its own and now it’s up to the worker to demand people continue to take notice.
What is the purpose of Undertaker working next week’s Smackdown taping from the O2 in London, England?
Undertaker is officially advertised for next week’s Smackdown taping from the O2 Arena in London, England. He is scheduled to work in what will likely be a dark match main event with Randy Orton & Sheamus against The Shield. Even if he doesn’t appear on-camera, this is being done to create excitement for the fans attending across the pond. This is Undertaker’s first time in London with WWE in four years and will bolster attendance and ticket sales.
