Hope to see Jerry Lawler back in the announce alongwith Cole.. Get Well soon.. :)
Now the topic i want to discuss is about monsters or the big guys which are diminishing day by day Monsters are the way to go in the past.. Guys like Andre the giant.. The undertaker..Rikishi.. kevin nash to name a few..There are few monsters in WWE but they are all at the brink of retirement..like Mark Henry..The big slow and KAne..but nonetheless their are still few left in the WWE..i have cateogarised according to their weight which should be around 290 pnds..and basically consist of power moves..While many have come in WWE n tried to fit in "monster" role like Mason ryan ( i dont know where he is right now)..Jackson andrews ( Kidd's bodygaurd)..Eli cottonwood..n many more. I am not counting Khali. Don't worry i haven't forget Tensai..he's on a downhill road n sooner rather than later he will be released.. The only man that comes to my mind is Ryback..that just fits in this cateogary.. One more thing that i am interested how will Big E. Langston will be used I have seen his matches in NXT he's good.. And if Morgan comes back how will it affect will he go in the same path as Tensai.. Personally i would love to see Morgan with his great agility and power moves he can be good if properly utilised..
There's Ryback and Big E, who are just at the start of there careers, Matt Morgan if he signs could instantly be thrust into a monster heel position.
And there is one other, he seems to have fallen off the face of the earth though, Mason Ryan.
as for Tensai I don't see him been around much longer, or they'll repackage him as the only crowd reaction he gets is Albert chants, whoch to be honest is just pointless, were people chanting Nitro when John Morrison changed his name, NO! NO! NO!
Big guys and giants are two different things I think, and the ones who ar dissapearing are giants. There are a lot of powerful guys actually on the roster, no problem with that.
Mark Henry (not tall but I put him in with the giants even if I think he will soon end his career)
The Great Khali is done I think
The Undertaker is 1 or 2 match per year so it's over now.
WWE should have give Kevin Nash a bodyguard contract with perhaps some matches also sometimes. If WWE hires Matt Morgan, that's ok as long as they don't screw him like they did with Tensai. (I'm not a Matt Morgan fan...). WWE should have kept Luke Gallows/Festus. The guy is tall and powerfull. Remember when he faced The Undertaker, Gallows looked really great and a real Threat for The Dead Man.
Oddly out of all those guys you named on that list I can only picture Kane and Big Show still wrestling in 2014 or 2015.

Brodus Clay is the new face Mark Henry : a joke
He will remain a joke until he turns heel
A Headbutt.. t-bone suplex..then the splash..The new three moves of doom thats the funkasaraus for you..i dont count him as a threat untill he gets a lil bit of serious or a change of gimmick is needed for sure
I see very bright futures for Ryback and Big E Langston.
I'm a big Mason Ryan fan; I think WWE could make a star out of him, at least a decent run with the US Championship.
Ezekiel Jackson I also like, always found his matches entertaining and I like to see him on screen even if he isn't picking up wins.
Khali fits the monster bill great; I don't see why WWE try feeding him to us as a babyface. Keep him heel.
Bigshow and Kane are the ultimate WWE monsters; they can still go and I don't see them winding down their workload too much for a couple of years just yet. It's keeping them in fresh angles without going stale that's the tricky one for those two.
Mark Henry's a decent monster too, but I don't see him a any more than a mid carder now he's out of the title picture (as entertaining as I found his World Championship run).
Again, Tensai I really like. Always like
d him since his Prince Albert days and WWE has a lot to gain by building him up as an unstoppable monster because then when he puts someone over it'll actually mean something.
Not too into Brodus Clay, but he makes a watchable face monster if such a thing exists.
I'd love to see Nash on TV more, as I enjoy pretty much any angle with him in; I really hope he gets to finish his feud with CM Punk sometime soon.
The re-debut I'm really looking forward to is Matt Morgan! I bet they completely re-package him and brush his last WWE run under the rug like they did with R-Truth.
WWE has plenty of monsters atm, but my favourite are by far Ryback and Kane. I'm a big fan of Mason Ryan too and I think he'd get a great shot at being Ziggler's "enforcer"
Big E Langston
We are good for a while i think!
I like Big E but I see his height might be used as a disadvantage to him becoming a next big thing. He reminds me of a smaller Bobby Lashley yet he is stronger than Lashley, but Lashley is more athletic. Apparently Brodie Lee is a big fast guy in FCW(NXT) who I might be interested in becoming a monster dude. Bray Wyatt on the other hand fits his current gimmick so well I like the chances of him becoming a big guy in WWE.
