Superstars That WCW Could Have Done More With

WWE vs. WCW

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW) are two of the biggest and most successful companies in all of wrestling history. Both companies have made many superstars into household names, main eventers, icons and legends. Throughout most of the ‘90s and early ‘00s, both companies went head-to-head with each other. During this time, there were many of the two companies’ respective superstars who had jumped ship in between the two companies at one time or another. Eventually, WWE came out on top and put WCW out of business for good. Shortly after, many of WCW’s superstars ended up wrestling for WWE and some still remain a part of the company today. While WCW had managed to turn superstars like Sting, Ric Flair, Lex Luger, Booker T, Diamond Dallas Page, Goldberg, Scott Steiner, Ricky Steamboat, Vader, Ron Simmons, Jeff Jarrett and The Giant (who would later become known as Big Show in WWE) into household names, main eventers, icons and legends, there are many superstars that WCW could have done the exact same thing with, but WWE ends up doing it instead. Below is the list of superstars that WCW blew it with.

 

My Match Ideas for WWE WrestleMania 31

WrestleMania 31 logo

Fatal 4-Way WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match

Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns vs. Daniel Bryan vs. John Cena

Brock Lesnar walked into the 2015 Royal Rumble event as WWE World Heavyweight Champion and he walked out as champion. Also, Roman Reigns won the Royal Rumble Match; therefore, the main event for WrestleMania 31 is set to be Brock Lesnar defending his championship against Roman Reigns. There are many people that want to see Daniel Bryan in that match, however; also, John Cena is WWE’s top dog, so he has all the qualifications to be in that match as well. Therefore, in the weeks leading up to WrestleMania, both Bryan and Cena would manage to land spots in that match and would therefore become a Fatal 4-Way Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. As far as who I would want to win that match, there is part of me that wants to see Roman Reigns win his first-ever World Championship, but there is also part of me that wants to see Daniel Bryan regain the championship that he was strategically stripped of by The Authority.

My Thoughts on the 2015 Royal Rumble

Royal-Rumble-Roman-Reigns-645x370

Kickoff Match

Cesaro & Tyson Kidd def. The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Big E)

What was originally supposed to be a 6-Man Elimination Tag Team Match between all three members of The New Day (Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston & Big E) and the team of Adam Rose, Cesaro & Tyson Kidd was changed to a regular 2-on-2 Tag Team Match. These two trios have been going at it for the past few weeks with The New Day always coming out on top. That, however, all changed at the 2015 Royal Rumble when Cesaro & Kidd knocked off The New Day. The ending of the match did not come without controversy though because Cesaro, who was not the legal man in the match, hit Kofi with a European uppercut and it allowed Kidd to get the pinfall victory over Kofi. In addition to being disappointed that The New Day did not get the victory, I am also disappointed that the match was changed.

My Royal Rumble Hopes/Predictions

Royal Rumble 2015

Kickoff Match

The New Day (Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston & Big E) vs. Adam Rose, Cesaro & Tyson Kidd

The trio of Adam Rose, Cesaro & Tyson Kidd has formed an alliance with one another under the common purpose of feeling that WWE keeps overlooking them. While they may have a good argument for that, I personally feel that all three members of The New Day are being overlooked as well. Instead of being bitter and complaining about it like Rose, Cesaro & Kidd do, however, The New Day is spreading the positive message that as individuals, they are great, but together, they can be even better. Not only do I hope that The New Day comes out victorious in this match, but I hope that all three members of The New Day end up being participants in the Royal Rumble Match as well.

 

Paige & Natalya vs. The Bella Twins (WWE Divas Champion Nikki & Brie)

NXT Has Made a Huge Impact in WWE

NXT_Wrestling

Whether it was the original version of NXT where an NXT Rookie was paired with a WWE Pro or NXT the current developmental system of WWE, many of today’s WWE Superstars on the main roster have come out of NXT. Some of these superstars have made it to the top, some have made a huge impact and some still have yet to make their presence felt. I am very confident that there will be many more superstars to come out of NXT in the near future.

 

NXT Alumni

 

The following superstars listed below have managed to land spots on the main roster. Some have gone on to become top stars, some are still working their way to the top and some even still spend part of their time down at NXT.

 

 

Adam Rose and some of his Rosebuds – Adam Rose owns numerous victories over former World Champion Jack Swagger and The Rosebuds continue to follow him.

 

AJ Lee – 3-time WWE Divas Champion and Slammy Award Winner.

WrestleMania Rematches at SummerSlam

WrestleMania and SummerSlam

As many may know, WWE’s biggest show of the year is WrestleMania. The company’s second biggest show of the year is SummerSlam. One thing that I particularly like about both events is the fact that there have been a select few WrestleMania matches that have had rematches at SummerSlam later that year. Some matches are very memorable and some are not so memorable. Without further ado, here is the list of those matches.

How John Cena Can Manipulate The Authority

Team Cena

Seth Rollins Gets The Authority Back Into Power

 

As many most likely know, on the last Raw of 2014, Mr. Money in the Bank Seth Rollins blackmailed John Cena, the only person who had the power to bring The Authority back into power, into doing just that when Rollins threatened to permanently cripple WWE Hall of Famer Edge. On the very first Raw of 2015, The Authority was officially back in power. They wasted no time in throwing their weight around. First, they put former Team Cena members Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan into matches with odds stacked against them. Towards the end of Raw, The Authority welcomed John Cena to the ring to show their “appreciation” for him. The Authority then welcomed out Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan. Shortly afterward, The Authority once again threw their weight around and fired Ziggler, Ryback and Rowan. The Authority then took Raw home by saying that The Authority is back in power, three men had just lost their livelihood, and that everybody can thank John Cena for all of it.

WWE Needs to Put Zack Ryder Back into the Championship Picture

Zack Ryder US Champion

Not since 2012 has Zack Ryder gotten a championship opportunity, let alone a championship. His career really started to take off in 2011; he gained a huge fan following and he won his first major singles championship, the United States Championship, at the final WWE Pay-Per-View of the year. About a month later into January 2012, he lost the championship under controversial circumstances. Zack Ryder would go on that year to have a match at WrestleMania 28 and earn an opportunity at the U.S. Championship at the Night of Champions Pay-Per-View. Since then, however, Ryder started to fade away more and more from the championship picture, as well as win less matches. I think it is total crap the way WWE gave Ryder the push that he had worked so hard to get and then snatch it right away from him. WWE needs to give this push back to him. Ryder is currently recovering from an injury, but when he comes back, WWE needs to start pushing him again and have him either regain the U.S. Championship or win the Intercontinental Championship for the first time in his career. Bottom line, WWE gave and then took away something special from …
