Not sure as to what brand but I'm pretty sure Edge can and will be World Title material. I mean I just remember his matches with Guerrero, Angle and others(sure, you can dispute that because he was facing Angle and Guerrero) but the man has "it" I think.
Difference is, I can see edge actually making a dent in Trips' armour. He's a genuine bonafide homegrown WWE star, and much like Kurt Angle I can see Vin-Man getting a hard-on for a superpush and putting him over Hunter.

Well, sure, they COULD have entertained us with a title tournament of some kind -- But then again, having Eric just hand the belt to a smirking HHH would supposedly generate more heel heat for Hunter ... ...
