Quite a newsworthy week in 'the E' this week which has gone from seeing many of us rejoice at the sight of Christian becoming World Champion to us witnessing his pain after realising that he'd lost the title to Orton on Smackdown.
I'll start off though by talking about Sin Cara. This new Mexican superstar seems to be a topic of much debate. The debate surrounding; his prospects, his in-ring ability and even his entrance. I think that he's a breath of fresh air and certainly brings a unique offense in the ring and i enjoy watching him. However i can't see him lasting in the WWE. He's not WWE's type of superstar and i certainly can't see him having much success during his tenur in the WWE, a tenure which i think will be very short. Vince of course was furious with Sin cocking up his entrance which doesn't bode well for the Mexican. Although i think if people high up in WWE think, like me that Sin Cara doesn't have a long term future then they shouldn't have made the error of having that big press conference when they first signed him because the spotlight is firmly fixed on Sin now with such a build up. One issue i do have is with the lighting during Sin Cara's matches. For the past 2 weeks the lighting has been dark during Sin's matches with Jack Swagger and Tyson Kidd. I'm confused as to why this is. Is it to present the feeling of mystique whilst Cara's wrestling or what? Strange.
As I mentioned before, it's been a huge week for Christian. In fact the last few months have been massive for Captain Charisma. Edge's retirement, winning and eventually losing the World title in a 5 day period has capped off an emotional period in Christian's career. I'm sure that a majority of WWE fans were pleased when Christian won the big one. A 17 year career to date without winning the top prize and this week he did it, and dropped it too. Apparently after the celebrations in the ring at Extreme Rules, Christian went back stage and hugged Vince and said thankyou. What must Vince have been thinking in his head whilst Christian was jubillantly hugging and thanking him. "Oh make the most of it because on Tuesday night it's all over". You could call Vince a snake for crushing Christians dream and giving the title to the Viper. But that's Vince, he's never really been a big fan of Christian and thats why he's never been champion before now. I don't believe that Christian is main eventer but i was pleased that he'd made it to the top. When the match on Smackdown was all said and done and Orton had gone to the back, the music stopped and there was Christian sat in the middle of the ring looking confused, like he'd just woken up from the greatest dream he'd ever had. A 5 day dream, or 2 day in reality. One good thing is he can say that "i was world champion". And another thing is he at least he had it longer than Kane back in 1998, lasting just 24 hours. I think now Christian will have serious questions that he'll be asking himself about his WWE future.
Now that Orton is the World Heavyweight champion on Smackdown and it looks like Christian will be feuding with Mark Henry, who do people want to feud with Orton for the World Title. There are not many candidates to be honest. Sheamus perhaps, but i'd be bored with that. No i think it's time that Cody Rhodes stepped into the main event spotlight. He's got the best gimmick in WWE at the moment and had a solid feud with Rey Mysterio. It could bring in nicely the Legacy issue, master vs pupil in a sense. So i think Cody Rhodes deserves a chance and to be honest, it might not happen but i'd like to see Cody strike gold.
