I understand what you mean, but Orton is on his final strike and has thrown his weight around enough to realize that it's his last chance or he'll be out. And this time around, he did not get an automatic push after his return like it has been in the past so if he finally gets pushed after a year of doing nothing, I think he's smart enough to know that he can't keep taking the opportunities for granted. And Bourne was on his first two strikes with the back to back ones which is still different than being on your last. And WWE have proven that they might still push you if they find you worth the risk like seen with Jeff Hardy.

You mark that frame an 8, you're entering a world of pain.

A day ago, people would've said that about Swagger. Granted, different scenarios, different level of star, but regardless.

He'll be out for one year, for a guy like Orton who has millions in the bank, that might not be a big deal for him. He's probably super banged up anyway and could use a year off. I'm not saying he wants to get fired but he might not be guarding himself that heavily either. I really don't know, maybe he is, maybe he's not. I just don't think you risk it at Mania. If it's post Mania, who cares, but Del Rio is Vince's baby and he won't want his program to be continually assraped.

Episode 99 - Superhero Showdown Returns!

The much requested Superhero Showdown episode makes a return where we pit your favourite comic/movie/tv characters against each other to determine who's slighty better! Also we get into news of the new Civil War line-up, Star Wars The Force Awakens, Assassins Creed and undoubtably something else to do with whatever this podcast is about. Thanks for listening!

Re: New #1 Contender?

I would love if it was Christian but I don't see how could work. Actually I don't think that anybody besides Ziggler , who has the MITB, could make a feud out of nowhere work just in 6 weeks.

Re: New #1 Contender?

It needs to be Jericho, let Jericho win over ADR at mania, and then let Ziggler cash in on jericho and feud for a few PPVs. It's a repeat feud, but a really money feud for the WWE.

Re: New #1 Contender?

Hopefully it's Henry or Jericho (face vs face, don't want to see either Jericho or ADR as a heel right now). If Daniel Bryan wasn't such a joke these days I'd pick him instead.

Re: New #1 Contender?

My cousins went to the SmackDown taping last night and said the show was so-so. They said the best part was the street fight between big show and Del Rio after smackdown went off the air. Saying that i wouldn't mind Del Rio vs. Big Show one last time ONLY if the street fight stipulation is added.Then ziggles cashes in and feuds with Del Rio through SummerSlam

Re: New #1 Contender?

I'll say Ziggler or Henry. And the reason I'm saying Henry, is because I'm fairly sure Ziggler will cash-in at Mania and walk out with the World Title anyway, so he doesn't need to be in the match, but it would be nice to see Ziggler in a World Title feud heading into WrestleMania.

Orton could work if they turned him heel. Jericho would be nice but both guys are face so I don't know how they could work it.

I would like this, but as I say, I'm not sure how they would do the feud with both of them being face. Face vs face feuds almost never happen in the WWE today.

Re: New #1 Contender?

Just say that Swagger was jumped by a bunch of foreign thugs who put him in the hospital. Zeb Coulter says that Swagger will not be able to make it to Mania, and is in a coma. Play if off like it's serious, and feed it to the fans like it's bait. I would have Dolph cash live on Raw, and win the title. That way they can just do another contender's match simply because there is a new champion. My vote goes to Ziggler vs Jericho at WM 30.
