Re: Cesaro vs Swagger Potential Feud??
The idea that Antonio Cesaro HAS to lose the title to someone with an "American Hero" gimmick just feels forced.
Also with Miz and Del Rio turning face, Swagger needs to stay a heel, and get his push back as a heel. There is a huge lack of uppercard heels, which is why a lot of faces get stuck beating up 3MB in job matches every week, because the top level faces don't have enough heels to feud with.
Also, there are a lot of other guys on the face side that deserve a chance to move up, and if Swagger turns heel, then a lot of guys who have huge potential as faces like Justin Gabriel, Brodus Clay, Zack Ryder, Alex Riley, Derrick Bateman, etc. will never get a chance to move up. Swagger turning face would only bog them down that much more.
I'd rather have Alex Riley come back as the guy that finally takes down Cesaro. You could play up Riley's history with Miz, and have Miz be the one who brings him back to TV. Talk about how Riley wants redemption after a horrible year jobbing and he's going to redeem himself by winning the U.S. Title.
