I hope that is the case. BPP needs to come in, kick some ass, and talk some shit. That is it. He will get over big time then. He needs to be kept strong, so I am not talking about have him fighting Hurricane. He needs to beat some real opponents. Have him put some people in the Steiner Recliner. Building up for him to beat the shit out of HHH.
I know it would never happen, but HHH is not exactly setting the world on fire right now and it is time for a change. Maybe have HBK cost HHH the match, maybe have The Book run in and cost HHH the match because he wants to beat BPP for the Title.
I am excited because I do like the BPP character, I hated it at first, but I like it now. But WWE will find a way to screw it up, I am sure of it. We will see him jobbing to Steven Richards in 2 weeks.

Yep. The only sure way to ruin BPP is to make in look like a pu**y. Like they did to the nWo with having Hall taped down to that office chair while the rest of the group hides. nWo was over huge until THAT ruined the angle.
I think they've hurt Brock by letting the girly Hardys beat him up and doing stuff like having Taker launch him thru the set at the end of PPV. That makes Brock look like a pu**y and hurts his heat.
Belligerent and ruthless. It doesn't even mean winning matches. Sting got over huge by being portrayed as a total asskicker despite not wrestling and just repelling down from the rafters with a bat. The key was they NEVER got the upper-hand on HIM. Still, the nWo stayed over because they were ruthless and belligerent to everyone ELSE.
This is how you BUILD compelling heat machines.
What WWE does is let everyone on their roster trade wins with each other. The result is no-one can generate any heat. Belts just get passed around. Newcomers "pay their dues". No-one builds heat. And the ratings sink.
You can always tell when the writer follows wrestling when he composes gems like this one: "Italian boys have new heroes: beefy, loud American wrestlers like Rey Mysterio and Undertaker." The beefy, gregarious Rey Rey.
