Why stop there? Throw in Punk, Kofi, Jericho, Cody Rhodes, and other smaller guys in there. Let these dwarfs slug it out while keeping them away from main titles so they stop ruining out buy rates! :vince3they'll demote Bryan and throw him in there probably. He'll win it though..but its still embarassing...they tried to ruin the guy's career plenty of times already.
Holy shit how did I forget about him of all people...feel free to de rep me for that one because I pretty much deserve it at this point.Fandango wut? You forgot the very best highflyer in the world today Adrian Neville. Just the thought of Sami Zayn vs Adrian Neville vs Tyson Kidd in a triple threat for the cw title makes me hard :mark:
This pretty much bodybaged the thread.You just have to look at the X Division, or how crappy the CW division was back 5-7 years ago to realise that wrestling has moved on since the 90's. While it made sense to have a CW division then, back when guys like Jericho and Malenko couldn't move up the card due to the amount of stars WCW had, now is a time where guys like Punk, Bryan, Austin Aries, AJ Styles etc. have all held world titles. So why would it make sense to have a separate weight division, when someone like CM Punk is fighting for the WWE title?
The weight limit used to be 220lbs so pretty sure Heath would qualify, as would Punk, Bryan, Kofi, Christian (who's held the Light-Heavyweight title), Curt Hawkins (he's still employed right?) and maybe Jericho as well.I mean, lets really think about this one for a minute. I know the cruiserweight division did not draw much for the WWE nor did the WWE make many storylines based off of it, but I honestly think WWE has what it takes to put on an incredibly strong cruiserweight division. We will never see anything like the old WCW cruiserweight division, a division that brought in all the talent they could possibly find from around the world, but just look at these names that the WWE has right now that they could put into it.
Evan Bourne (where ever the fuck he is. Seriously what the hell happened to this guy??)
Tyson Kidd (who apparently is still employed)
Heath Slater (the guy is actually a very talented high flyer, although I'm not so sure he fits the weight description)
Yoshi Tatsu (he's still employed right?)
There. You've got yourself an incredible talented cruiserweight division with just this talent alone. I'm not sure all of them fit the weight requirements, but for the most part, just the matches that we could see from these guys would be incredibly fun to watch. I'd love to see it on Smackdown again, to me that would give some meaning back to Smackdown, a way to make it stand out.
Oh and I guess Rey Mysterio could be thrown into the mix as well.
Doesn't need to be a demotion, I've often said that I believe the CW title should return as a replacement for the World title. It would be the title any Royal Rumble winner under 220lbs would challenge for. Think about the championship matches he could have with Mysterio, Christian or Jericho in the near future before facing guys NXT like Sami Zayn, Adrien Neville, Cory Graves and Tyler Breeze in a couple of years. Would you prefer to see him face Big Show again? How about Mark Henry? Those 2 have there place in wrestling, I'd just prefer it wasn't across the ring from Bryan.they'll demote Bryan and throw him in there probably. He'll win it though..but its still embarassing...they tried to ruin the guy's career plenty of times already.
Bryan is certainly on that level. Maybe not better than Eddie or Rey in their peak, but he is definitely on their level and certainly better than Malenko (who I am a big fan of). However, the beauty of that division was that it was the best talent all across the world. WWE never signed that kind of talent like WCW did.The CW division from WCW was just unbelievable. Guys like Malenko, Rey, Eddie could work circles around the top guys in today's WWE. There is no one of the current roster that is comparable to any of those three guys I mentioned. As good as guys like Bryan and Punk are they aren't on the same level as those WCW guys.
