So like virtually everyone else here, I'm loving loving loving the work Angle/Benoit, Los Guerreros, and Edge/Rey have done for the last couple of months. But my concern is this- where is it all going? For the division to survive, they quickly need at least one more team to enter the mix, but any other team is going to look like crap after the top stuff we've seen lately. How long can they continue the storyline between the same 3 teams? DO they need to worry about storyline? I will probably be entertained if they continue to put up top notch matches for another few months with the title and hatred being the only motivation. But how long can it last? And what happens when it ends?
As noted they really need to start building up future teams NOW. Matt Hardy and John Cena are megacool together, and I actually quite like the D-Von/Simmons tag team. But they're both heel duos. Both sides of the fed seem to be having problems creating and sustaining face tag teams. Any ideas for some?
I think the thought is right now to get the Guerreros and the titles so over to the Smackdown audience that they can plug in different face challengers like Kidman/Moore and people will care about the match. I'd still like to see Edge move back to singles and Rey/Kidman hook up again as a team.
Like all good things, this incredilble 3-way feud for the titles will have to end. Unfortunately, I predict misery and woe for fans everywhere after it does. Hopefully they will keep Gurreros in tag action, as well as Edge/Rey. It's anyone's guess who the WWE will put in as credible challengers. I wouldn't mind seeing Mattitude with either Cena or Shannon Moore.
Tajiri/Funaki would make a fun team, IMO. Another good one (though I can't remember what brand they're with, much less if they're injured) would be Jindrak/O'Haire. Maybe Little Guido/Nova or Kanyon/Rhyno?
For a face team, bring Nova up from OVW and team him with Tajiri.
But, I think Matt Hardy and Tajiri could make an interesting heel team. Let Tajiri play the brutal, mist spewing "Japanese Buzzsaw" that he played in ECW and team him up with the arrogant "Mattitude" of Matt Hardy. Hell, add in John Cena, make Matt Hardy the leader of the mini stable teaching his followers the Mattributes of the religion of Mattitude.
I had this cool idea a ways back about having Dinsmore and Conway(the OVW Lords of the Ring) start facing each other on Velocity. One week Dinsmore wins, but Conway wants a rematch. So the next match, Conway wins. Then they go like 15 minutes(I know, on Velocity, I'm nuts), and it ends in the old WCW time limit draw. They're so impressed with each other that they decide to team up and go after the WWE Tag Titles. Teaming anyone with the Big Show would also work, but I think he's *finally* the singles force he should have been a few years ago.
