WWE 2015 – Let It Begin!

So my last article was back in the Fall 0f 2014. I had seen a number Raws but I didn’t have much to say. As the holidays approached I was going to do a recap and peak into what I would expect in 2015 but a stomach virus knocked me out for almost two weeks and then Christmas rolled around where I indulged in the holiday buzz of food, family, fun, and drinks. And then 2015 arrived! It’s a new year of wishes, predictions, expectations, and the unexpected; good and bad but one thing for sure is 2015 has started off with a decent bang in the WWE.

It felt like around the time of my last article there weren’t many things to look forward to heading into 2015 but a lot can change in a couple of months. Key WWE Superstars are back from injuries and it feels like multiple wrestlers are primed for a push. But on the other hand, there are still things within the WWE that needs improving, or eliminated, or streamlined. There’s lots to talk about that won’t fit this article from Last Sunday’s Royal Rumble heading into Wrestlemania season.

Injuries plagued the WWE last year that the creative team had to quickly move things around pushing back or changing their original plans along with a sudden exit of CM Punk. But being patient is a good thing. The main event at the Royal Rumble was a classic example of different wrestlers at different phases of their respective careers. All three participants of the triple threat match will take different paths to Wrestlemania but they will be important paths.

Brock Lesnar didn’t disappoint last Sunday at the Royal Rumble. He’s a monster but he may be wrapping up his time with the WWE after Wrestlemania. John Cena’s next feud to be determined but it depends on whether or not he wins the title. Seth Rollins is a continuous star in the making with a bright future. One way or another he should headline WrestleMania capturing the WWE title at the Rumble and taking it to Wrestlemania to face whoever it may be. I’m hoping I’m right.

Daniel Bryan’s back from his injuries so we’ll see how the Yes Movement progresses or digresses. The Philadelphia crowd last Sunday showed they’re huge backers of the movement while voicing their displeasure verbally when he was eliminated from the Rumble match. Yes, the WWE fans weren’t happy about what transpired last Sunday but I doubt Daniel Bryan will be kept down for long. But the big question is can he stay healthy? Speaking of injury, guess who’s back?

A favorite of mine, Wade Barrett is back. I’m hoping for the push he deserves as a heel. He has the potential to become one of the top heels even though he’s been getting pops from the crowd. He plays the heel so well.

Roman Reigns! Wow! Never thought he’d ever get that kind of crowd reaction at last Sunday’s Rumble with or without The Rock by his side. I’m happy that he won and the WWE Brass is sticking with their plans. Okay, he might have lost some pop from the crowd but he exudes major push and is a definite future WWE star.

Even the veterans are making it interesting. I loved the ending to the January 19th Raw when Sting interfered in the Cena/Authority match. I’m loving the slow, gradual buildup of the Sting/HHH feud dating back to last year’s Survivor Series. Both of them are legends in the business and they can work this program extremely well. They’ve confronted each other twice and we’re clamoring for more. I know Sting’s getting up there in age but I find it hard to believe that Wrestlemania may be his last match in the WWE. I hope it’s not.

And then there’s the unknown of two veterans in particular. They are Randy Orton and the Undertaker. Taking Orton off Raw has done him good. We’ll see what’s in store Orton and there are multiple options on how Orton’s opponent will be; assuming he does come back for Wrestlemania.

One guy whom I think would be a great opponent for Randy Orton is Bray Wyatt. Wyatt’s been getting a push with victories over Dean Ambrose and he’s a crowd favorite. Randy Orton versus Bray Wyatt makes sense. Think about it; Orton hears voices in his head against Bray Wyatt who gets inside Orton’s head. Wyatt was a hit last year at Wrestlemania versus John Cena with a great match and the crowd singing “He’s got the whole world in his hands.” If I see another Orton/Cena match, I’ll puke.

Speaking of veterans, how about The Undertaker? Is he really done? We never got clarity on his situation since the loss. In my world, I would put him against Brock Lesnar in a rematch. In my world, I would have the Undertaker interfering in a Lesnar match whether or not it costs him the WWE title at the Rumble or on a Raw. Both Brock and his manager Paul Heyman have been boasting the victory over the Undertaker the entire year. Besides, to me there was something off with The Undertaker last year in the ring and with his look and I want to see him and his legacy finish on a better note. He looked slow and out of shape but I understand injuries and his age was a factor but his look didn’t suit him well. Do away with the buzz cut Mohawk!

So many more wrestlers to mention like Dean Ambrose, Rusev, Dolph Ziggler, Ryback, Sheamus, Erik Rowan, and Luke Harper but I don’t have room to address it in this article but you get my point. For now, let’s just say the WWE roster looks good for now bit what concerns me is how will these wrestlers be used and will the writing be better this year? I’ll admit some feuds did nothing for me fading out at times but I’m a lifelong professional Wrestling fan and I keep coming back for more. So let’s get going with the 2015 Wrestling season and I wish the key WWE superstars and happy and more importantly a healthy 2015.
