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.
Interesting...they clearly realize there is a market for retro, and with the gimmick battle royal at WM a couple years ago and some of the extras they're putting on DVDs now, I wonder if there's any chance of a line of WrestleCrap-esque action figures......
