The clock is ticking. The score is well in favor of Triple H and Randy Orton. Daniel Bryan is a beaten man. And the remaining members of the WWE’s roster is wondering what the hell it can do to make this kind of domination stop.
I’m not in favor of all this “handcuffing” that is going on in the company, but I also know that in past angles like this, the faction in charge showed its muscle for a bit before faces fought back.
Look no further than The Shield to see what I am talking about. Nothing was more compelling at the beginning of the program than seeing hungry wolves pummeling their prey. If the Shield, along with Orton and Triple H, should he get back in the ring, could make a mighty solid bullying squad.
But when all is said and done, the opponents fight back. They fight back in numbers. They fight back with a vengeance. They fight back to the delight of the fans.
I am not saying this should happen, but what if someone from the back stood up and challenged the authority of the WWE? What if there was one man (or woman) who could change the direction of this new angle in one swift turn? Here are some names to consider.
The ultimate rebellious SOB. Austin has a history with the McMahon family. His feud with Vince McMahon is considered the greatest feud of all time. I like the idea, but I cannot see this really happening.
The only way this becomes more compelling is if it leads to SCSA and Triple H getting in the ring. WrestleMania XXX has already been nixed, but Hell in a Cell is still available.
Foley vs. Dean Ambrose, anyone. This is a possibility because Foley is constantly moving in and out the television picture.
He would be ideal to being together five superstars to challenge for the supremacy of the WWE.
I could see Foley lead a team into Survivor Series. And when all is said and done, he can still wrestle.
This might be the most shocking move the WWE could make, but it could be the best at the same time.
Laurinaitis comes out, bookended by Big Show and Mark Henry. He tells Triple H and Vince McMahon how he played their game and even fought the system. Now, he wants to make amends. The crowd goes wild.
Laurinaitis then challenges the McMahons to Survivor Series and control of the WWE.
This is one angle I expected to happen last week. When Booker T was watching Triple H walk up the entrance ramp. I thought either Big Show or Booker T would open their mouths.
The angry former general manager of SmackDown seeks revenge against the McMahons.
I can dig that, sucka.
Another angle I like is the former world tag champion taking the Prime Time Players under his wing. Add Mark Henry and Big Show to the mix and good gawd, that rocks.
I know Eric has touched on this, but as a fan of “The Nature Boy.” I love the idea of Flair being part of this program. Forget all the drama outside the ring. The WWE needs Flair and this is perfect for him.
There doesn’t need to be a Flair sighting in the ring. There just needs a little bit of styling and profiling. The rest is up to the locker room.
