My giant list of what to do with each of these WWE wrestlers
| her being fired from RAW.
I have no problem with Edge as heel Raw world champ. I'll
understand when they put the belt back on Cena in time for him
movie, as long as they take it back off after the movie hype dies
down. I'd either keep Lita with Edge or move her back to ECW as
Miss Congeniality. I also wouldn't have a problem if he were moved
to ECW. He seems a better fit for them than Big Show.
| Johnny Nitro - I dunno about this guy really and Melina is annoying as
| shit but he's solid in the ring so he is an alright champion for the
| moment but I don't think he should have a long run as Intercontinental
I loved his last run on Raw, but he needs to go back to his old
titantron video (the Monday Nitro opening theme). I like Melina,
too, so either keep them together or put her in the women's division
since she can apparently work better than 75% of the females
currently in WWE.
| Spirit Squad - Should be broken up soon and they can seperate them
| between the three shows. I dont think any of them besides Ken Doane
Split them all up and come up with new gimmicks as far away from the
lame-ass ones they have now. Any that can't work should be sent
back to OVW or DSW.
| Carlito - I think it's great that they've let him show more of his
| moveset and he's proven to be pretty good in the ring. I dont like him
| being a good guy though so what I would do is cut the good guy shit
| with Trish right now and have him turn heel on her and play it off like
| it's a career ending injury to Trish. With her being on her way out of
| the WWE this would give Carlito a huge chance to get heat. He should be
| turned heel and given a great Intercontinental title run again.
Carlito keeps showing flashes of brilliance, and he's solid on the
mic. I'd keep him in the IC/US title mix but probably not move him
up to the main event unless they're really hurting for top stars.
| Charlie Haas - They've ruined Haas to the point where I doubt he'll be
| able to get over. The smart thing to do is have him reunite with
| Shelton Benjamin and become tag champions.
Haas would just drag Benji down without helping Haas out any, so I'd
keep them apart. Since Haas doesn't really have much of a
personality (like whoever played "Cheese" in the Head Cheese" tag
team with Al Snow) I'd either keep him as a low-level jobber to put
over the midcarders, or move him back to OVW. Or maybe Heyman could
find a way to hide his weaknesses.
| Chris Masters - I dunno if they should even bring him back. I thought
| we might see some promise from him once htey started the Carlito feud
| but he was just horrible to watch and would be better off released from
| the company.
Fire his ass now. If he adheres to the Wellness Program, he'll go
from looking like Meat to looking like Spike Dudley (minus the
workrate). WWE should cut their losses and get rid of him now.
| Eugene - Easy. Eugene comes out and does an interview and shoots on
| the Eugene character saying it's some stupid idea made up by Vince
| McMahon and it was his only way to get himself on tv because he's not a
| character he's a wrestler. Then reveals his name as Nick Dinsmore and
| announces he's leaving for the ECW brand.
That's what I keep saying--so yes.
| Gene Snitsky - Release him. He's not entertaining anymore.
Snitsky, Heidenreich, Brock, and Lashley are the only "hosses" in
WWE that I've found entertaining in the last five years. So I'd
keep him, but only if they can come up with something interesting
for him. Feel free to consult with Heyman on that.
| John Cena - Turn Cena heel and let him job to Triple H for the year.
| Just keep them both away from the World Title
Give him the "Big Push" leading up to the movie release on 10/13.
Ride the wave through the end of November. If he's over after
that--decide how to keep him in the main event. If he's getting
booed, switch him heel at that point. If the fans are indifferent
to him, move him to the US/IC title mix starting some time in
| Kane - Supposedly going to retire soon, I'd just keep doing the same
| thing they've been doing and build him up against someone and then job
| him out for the big match. He somehow stays over with the crowds no
| matter what so he'd be good to put over new talent with.
I'll believe he's retired when he hasn't wrestled for 18 consecutive
months. He's not part of the hoss group that entertains me, but
he's not in the totally unwatchable hoss group with JBL, Taker,
Umaga, etc. I guess I'd use him to put people over for as long as
he wants to continue to earn a paycheck.
| Lance "Bradshaw" Cade - In a good tag team with Trevor Murdoch, Have
| them win matches and become tag title contenders. A feud with a
| reunited Haas and Benjamin would be good stuff.
Their styles seem so different that I'd be tempted to make them both
singles wrestlers (but them I'm a proponent of getting rid of the
tag division, since I really don't need to see another match where
the ref keeps missing the face tags so the FIP keeps getting beat up
while the heels keep switching in without legal tags until the final
face hot tag happens. I'd put Cade in the Kerry Von Erich role (if
he can step it up a notch) and put Cade in comedy matches.
| Matt Striker - Let him win some matches and slowly move him up to the
| mid card. A feud with Kane would be good, Let him get the big win on
| the PPV and it would help establish him.
Until he can start getting over with the crowd, have him keep
putting over the midcard faces.
| Mick Foley - Foley is Fat. Is that feud with Flair still going? Better
| off moved to ECW if he's gonna be used. Let him put over some guys like
| Ahmish Roadkill, etc.
Retire from active wrestling. If they can find a good role for him
to get in mic work (manager, announcer, GM, whatever) fine.
Otherwise let him go back to writing books for kids.
| Vince McMahon - Stay off tv after being beaten by DX. Only show up at
| the big ppv Wrestlemania and thats to announce something or do
Agreed. And I never want to see Linda McMahon as a character on TV
ever again. Use her for official biz having to due with
stockholders and not be a TV character.
I know I'm in the minority, but I'd like to see Shane McMahon do a
big stunt on PPV 3 or 4 times a year. Bonus points if he puts over
a rising star in the process.
| Randy Orton - Who knows, He cant really feud with Batista now since
| he's on RAW. I would keep him away from the WWE Championship for
I would put a shock collar on him set to go off if he comes within
50 feet of any diva. And then I'd have him put over the midcard
faces for the rest of the year before working his way back into the
IC/US title mix.
| Ric Flair - Just retire. Become a manager or do commentary. Would like
| to see Flair v Benoit one more time and would be a good reitrement
| match for Flair. Even though I bet they will turn Flair heel on Triple
| H saying he's gone soft and will lead to a retirement match between the
Ditto for what I said with Foley.
| Rob Conway - Release Him
Seems to have some charisma. I guess I'd use him to put over new
stars in the midcard. If he can get himself over with the crowds in
the process, move him up to the IC/US title picture.
| Rene Dupree - Release him
Agreed. Release him before the Wellness Program gives you a reason
to *have* to release him.
| Shawn Michales - Retire. I hate you.
I'd like to see him as an uber-heel--either trying to force his
religious beliefs on other wrestlers or else become a total
| Shelton Benjamin - Reunite with Haas as Worlds Greatest Tag Team
That would just drag Benji down without helping Haas. Either
continue to make Shelton "the next Rock" (like they're trying with
the "$500 shirts" and superfluous shades) or bring back Mama
Benjamin. Have him trade the IC/US title with Nitro, Carlito, and
others. If he takes off--move him to the main event.
| Triple H - Turn heel on Shawn Michaels and break his neck and then
| shoot yourself.
He's been doing a good job of not monopolizing the title for a
while. I'd use him to try to move Benji and a couple others into
the main event, and then let him have a few short world title reigns
since he wants to break Flair's record.
| Umaga - If Armando can wrestle they should tag team and make a run for
| the tag belts. Umaga can be released for all i care if they dont do
Release them both NOW.
| Val Venis - Retire
Either use him to put over the midcarders or get rid of him.
| Viscera - Release him
A couple months ago I would have said to keep him for laughs--but
now I gotta agree, just get rid of him (especially with the Wellness
Program, since 90% of the locker room were getting their drugs from
him in the 1990s)
| Rey Misterio - Drop the title to Booker T and take some time off and
| return to the cruserweight division. Turn him heel .
Drop the title to Benoit or Fit or Lashley. Then either move Rey
back to the cruiserweight division or move him to ECW and see if he
can switch back to his WCW (or better yet, pre-WCW) moveset. I
realize he has no knees, but he needs to something other than his
"standard five moves".
| Lashley - Let him stay the US Champion for some time and let him
| improve some more.
I'd put the world title on him by the end of the year. Who do they
have better qualified for the top belt?
| Gregory Helms - Keep him the Cruserwieght Champion and eventually move
| him onto more serious matches with upper midcarders. Let him maybe
| become a US Champion by the end of the year.
I'd move the entire cruiserweight division to ECW. Helms would rule
if booked by Heyman.
| Brian Kendrick - Keep him and London a tag team
| Paul Londo - see above
If they have to keep a tag division, then yeah--keep these two
together. I'd move them to ECW, though. Just seems to fit their
| Batista - Let him lose to Booker T for awile and eventually defeat
| Booker for the Championship. Then let him face a returning Benoit as a
I'd use him to put over midcarders, personally, but I realize I'm in
| Boogeyman - Where did he go? Let him be apart of the new ECW and get
| caned by Sandman.
I'd love to see Sandman's "disgusted" face when Boogey does his
schtick. Then I'd use Boogey to put over IC/US title guys.
| Christ Bengod - Let our lord and savior of professional wrestling
| return as a heel and start kicking everyones ass to become the champion
Either world champ or move to ECW. Heyman would elevate him to
sainthood as he deserves.
| Daivari and KaliMAAH - release them both
Fire the tall guy and move Daivari to ECW where he would rule all.
| Finlay - Move him into the US Title hunt. Give him some big wins and
| maybe a tag title run
Long feud with Benoit, putting on ****+ matches across the country.
Then either a World title run or move him to ECW as a bad-ass.
| Jamie Noble/Kid Kash - Let them become tag champs and have a decent run
If they have to keep a tag division, then yeah--keep these two
together. I'd move them to ECW, though. Just seems to fit their
| JBL - Let him retire, Give him some big matches on his way out but no
| world title.
Never wrestle again. If they can't find a better color
commentator--keep him doing CC on Smackdown, otherwise fire him. He
has his side jobs to keep him making money.
| Ken Kennedy - Move him into the main event.
Not ready. Have him put over US/IC title holders for a while. When
he's ready, put the us/IC title on him.
| Booker T - Defeat Rey for the Championship and have a decent run
| defeating Batista a few times.
Use him to put over the generation of stars. A win over Booker
would do a lot to help an emerging star. Booker's in the twilight
of his career, so he should be used to help out the next crop of
| Mark Henry - Jobber to the Stars. No World Title run
Ditto for what I said with Booker T.
| Matt Hardy - Move him to the ECW Brand and let him do some crazy shit.
Can he do crazy shit? Jeff was always the daredevil of their team.
If he can keep up with the ECW wrestlers--then by all means move him
over. I kinda feel sorry for his win-loss record over the last few
| The Miz - kill him on national tv and then shit on his corpse
Agree. Maybe put him in a *** character for a few months first.
| Psicosis - Move to ECW and give him a decent push as a singles wrestler
| Simon Dean - Return Nova to ECW
If he can be entertaining. Otherwise use him as a trainer behind
| Super Crazy - Feud with Helms over the Cruserweight title for awile.
| Sylvan - releae him
Can't fire him soon enough.
| Undertaker - Retire. Benoit should end his WM streak in a World Title
Agreed on all accounts.
| Regal - Keep him in the midcard
Benoit and Finlay can both pull great matches out of him. When
Benoit isn't in a feud with Fit, Regal should be putting over one or
the other of them.
| Vito - Release him. He ****s in the ring and wears a dress
Unless Paul wants to make a new "Baldies" stable (which I was never
a fan of, but probably gets over with the NYC crowd) Vito can be the
leader of it. Otherwise fire him.
| AL Snow - New theme music like his ECW Theme from Prodigy, Let him use
| head more. See if he can get over like he did at one time.
| Balls Mahoney - Should form a hardcore tag team with Stevie Richards
If he's going to be a tag wrestler, bring back Hack Meyers. When
Balls is in, the crowd can chant "balls" during each punch. When
Hack is in, the crowd can chant "shah" when he punches and "shit"
when he gets punched.
| Big Show - Let him drop the ECW Title to Tommy Dreamer, Then feud with
| Rob Van Dam upon his return.
If Dreamer can't get the ECW crowd to accept Show--move him back to
Raw/Smackdown where he can put over the main eventers.
| CW Anderson - Form a stable of "wrestlers" with Kurt Angle and CM Punk.
| A new triple threat sort of thing.
Or have Arn Anderson become a manager for a group of wrestlers that
all sort of look like him (and give them all the last name
| Danny Doring - Let him on the mic and give him a decent push in the
Fire him or make him interesting.
| Justin Credible - lol. release him
Glad I'm not the only one not impressed with him. Only keep him
around if you need someone to put over the new OVW call-ups.
| Kurt Angle - see CW Anderson -
Keep him, push him if he's going to be on TV for an extended time
when he's done resting.
| Roadkill - Should be given more time to get over. CHICKENS!!
Agreed. He's better on the mic than in the ring--so he should get
interview time backstage.
| Sabu - Push him in the main events for the ECW Title scene with
| Dreamer/Sandman. Feud him with Kurt Angle.
Some combination of a push and helping put over OVW call-ups.
| RVD - Return and beat Big Show and eventually become ECW Champ again
| Sandman - Should defeat Big Show for the ECW Title soon and feud with
| Tommy Dreamer
Or cane OVW call-ups and then respect them for the beating they
| Stevie Richards - Form a team with Balls Mahoney and become tag champs
Two words: bWo skits.
| Tony Mamaluke - Push him in the midcard. Give him a manager like Kelly
| or Francine.
Forma new FBI stable. He already has Trinity as a manager, but
she's injured for a few more weeks.
| Test - Let him be a upper midcard guy. No World Title run
Use him to put over the OVW call-ups.
| Mike Knox - Midcard, Let him improve some in the ring before giving him
| a good push
Let Test, Show, et.al. put him over.
