Most importantly I hope Bryan Danielson recovers well enough to at least lead a mostly normal life. On paper his life since April was supposed to be awesome, but it has been very rough with the death of his father and his injury. Those issues WILL take a toll on any marriage, much less a new one.
Assuming he comes back, I think that there are plenty of opportunities to get him back into the main event scene.
Unless they cave in to Colt Cabana's other very good friend, only Cena and Orton are in a position to carry the unified title.
I'm absolutely LOVING Batista these days. He's everything a big man should be: He has the look, he's improving constantly in the ring, and he's getting face reactions in spite of being a heel. Me no understand why he isn't getting pushed more.
