While there are many things I’d like to see happen in the WWE, if I could have only 5 of those in the form of Christmas gifts from WWE; these 5 would be it:
- RAW gets cut down to 2 hours.
Smackdown starts on the USA Network in a matter of weeks and its becoming apparent that WWE is trying to tighten up the ship for their B show to make it look and sound more like an A+ show. USA now plays both flagship WWE shows, so it wouldn’t kill USA and the WWE to scale back their RAW programming to two hours so there isn’t an overflow of the company on the network. Keep RAW at its 7PM central start time and have it end at 9PM so the younger and older fans can go to bed. USA can always resort to spamming another episode of NCIS or Law & Order to fill its 9PM start time.
- Creative pulls the trigger on a Dean Ambrose/Kevin Owens World Title Run.
Owens and Ambrose are having a killer feud together, but the truth to the situation is that both these guys can have great programs with anyone. They both get great crowd reactions perform very well on the microphone and their wrestling is top notch. Give these guys their own run for the world title while the fire is hot.
- John Cena continues to hold the U.S. Title. (While he’s around.)
I have heard from some pretty reliable sources that John Cena will be pulling a Rock and focusing more on his movie career that has suddenly started to have a second life. What exactly does that mean? I expect Cena to have a few periods within the next couple of years where he’s on and off the WWE roster for a few months. John absolutely refuses to take any film role within WWE films and only wants to get roles with bigger productions; meaning he can’t simply fly back to appear on RAW like he has in the past. While he is on the roster, have him continue to champion the US Title and have him elevate talent to the next level with it.
- Daniel Bryan is the last entrant in the 2016 Royal Rumble.
The Royal Rumble has really sucked the last couple of years and now WWE has the opportunity to do it right by having Daniel Bryan be the surprise last entrant in the Rumble and win it. Bryan gets a chance to win back the title he never lost at Wrestlemania and for once people talk about the Rumble in a positive light.
- Owen Hart is inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
I have a feeling that if any of these Christmas wishes come true, it will be this one. Owen Hart is a class act and watching his recently released DVD on his life made me realize that it’s a crying shame that he isn’t in the Hall of Fame in the first place. This man gave his life for the pro wrestling business and has never truly been acknowledge for the amazing work that he has done. Something tells me that 2016 will change that though.
