What’s Stopping WWE From Making Another Star Like Jinder Mahal? Wouldn’t that make for a hungrier locker room and more unpredictability for a live audience.

WWE: Why Is Seth Rollins The Only One Getting The Decent Push?

As of the posting of this article, Seth Rollins is celebrating his 200th day holding the Money in the Bank briefcase.

Since June 2nd, Seth Rollins has been given the best push of any up and coming WWE Superstar. Can anyone really say the same about his former Shield brethren, Dean Ambrose or Roman Reigns? Can we also say the same about their former rivals, the other up-and-coming three-man faction that split four months later in the Wyatt family.

I remember how I finally thought that WWE had delivered us some great signs that the future of the company was finally coming to fruition, and that by Wrestlemania XXXI, these two teams would bring a long and exciting feud to its end.

But then, CM Punk was officially fired and Daniel Bryan was injured and diagnosed to be out of action until 2015. But WWE has the Wyatts and the Shield. The breaking up of either of these teams has only benefited Seth Rollins.

Looking back, the WWE offseason saw the indescribable breakup of the Wyatts and Roman Reigns going on the shelf. Ambrose got to face Rollins to give the WWE Universe a feud we did like but started, stopped and then ended very quickly. Wyatts were taken off tv for a month followed by some horrible returns by each member of the Wyatt Family.

Through all of the misuse of five of the hottest young WWE Superstars ever to come out of NXT,  only Seth Rollins has thrived.

Politics, favoritism, call it whatever corporate bullshit caused this huge fail, we are now in the start of Wrestlemania season. 75 days till the biggest wrestling event of the year, and only Seth Rollins looks like he is set to get over as a main eventer, and he looks like he will be the only one this Wrestlemania season at a time when WWE needs to have young stars made to claim the proverbial brass ring. -KOP

WWE: Forgotten How to Do Long Term Booking, Even for John Cena

On the January 6th episode of the Wrestling is Real podcast, I questioned just where WWE is going with Wrestlemania plans… which normally start up around Royal Rumble time.

Instead, the first RAW of 2015 gets a 3pm re-writing by Vince himself, only to revert back to the pre-Survivor Series storyline where basically we see how things would have turned out if Team Authority would have won the 5-on-5 match.

Now, John Cena is pulled into the Authority storyline feeling guilty for the firings of Erick Rowan, Ryback and Dolph Ziggler, instead of focusing on his three-way title match versus an absent Brock Lesnar.

Seth Rollins is the only person being pushed right now, and for what? Why does Seth Rollins need to be in the world heavyweight match. How about letting him cash his money in the bank briefcase. The announcers might not bring it up and Seth might not bring it up in his scripted promos, but we see him carry the briefcase and he is introduced as Mr. Money in the Bank.

After John Cena finishes eventually losing to Brock Lesnar (in my honest opinion), does anyone have an idea what the TOP guy in the company is his next “dancing” partner. Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan, you know the guys that should be in some relevant storylines and possibly being pushed to the main event level…do any of these guys have any creative direction to speak of…..hmmmm!

We’re going into the Royal Rumble without an inkling of where storylines are going. For the WWE Universe’s sake, I hope creative tries to make some feuds during the Rumble match that will give us some hope for Wrestlemania.this year. Otherwise, first things first. Let’s see how they untangle the re-hashed Survivor Series idea and start cooking up some fresh ideas for THIS year.-KOP
