Didn’t Big Show have an “iron clad” contract that allowed him to basically do whatever he wanted in the WWE?
[adinserter block=”1″]Where was that contract Monday night when he stood with the other wrestlers on the entry ramp and watched Daniel Bryan all but have his head taken off by The Shield and Randy Orton on Raw?
How quickly storylines change in professional wrestling.
The new twist in this ever-growing angle is that any wrestler who interferes in the Corporation’s assault on Bryan will be fired. And since wrestlers like Big Show and Dolph Ziggler have already been outspoken about Triple H and the new way of the WWE, every wrestler has seemed to have forgotten how to speak recently.As Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole has eluded to on broadcasts, it must be a very tense situation backstage for wrestlers all around.
At some point, we all know this will boil over and wrestlers will “cross the line” and aid the fallen Bryan. The story line cannot continue for four months until Superman makes his triumphant return to the company and then everyone is expected to assume their position as second, third and fourth best and so on.
So who makes the “jump” and tests the COO of the WWE? Who dares to challenge authority?
Here are some wrestlers we know will take a step forward and here are some who may surprise you.
The Big Show
Just by the look on his face and the “acting” he did with Triple H by his side, you know it’s coming. You never wake a silent of sleeping giant and well, there is about to be a huge uproar from the biggest man in professional wrestling.
Like I said in my column yesterday, this is a perfect angle for him. It will solidify him as a face and allow the company to use him more as a marketing tool in John Cena’s absence. Plus the fact that he is a solid performer. The Miz is an ideal heel but in this case, his face status is most welcome. The feud will soften his view with the fans.
I don’t think anyone has fallen so quickly from grace since winning the World Title since Ron Garvin. Ziggler needs a lifeline. He also needs an opening to begin a feud with Dean Ambrose that will lead to a United States Title Match at Night of Champions. This also can help him get away from this awful feud with Big E. Langston.
This is a case of him following Big Show’s lead. The two will challenge The Shield’s Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins for the WWE Tag Team Titles at Night of Champions. Walking the line or crossing it just caused business to pick up a bit.
In a strange twist of fate, here is how Barrett turns on his new “family.” Barrett continues to “job” for Triple H, wearing down Bryan and whoever crosses his path. Then when Barrett is cast aside or talked down to or flat out insulted, the Big Brit attacks Orton or Triple H or seeks revenge in some way.
[adinserter block=”2″]Booker T
I wanted to throw this out there for some time. Booker T was screwed out of the general manager job on SmackDown. Revenge is a dish best served cold. There has been some time for this to simmer a bit and I could see Booker as the manager of Big Show and Henry or as a singles star with some gas left in the tank. He could make for some interesting dialogue. Can you dig that, Sucka?
