Originally posted by superfurrySheamus has the tools to be a huge star, certainly. Really if you want to get him to the next level, winning the World title at Wrestlemania would be the way to do it. That's the best way to elevate someone. When was the last time a relatively new face won the Royal Rumble and then the title at 'Mania in an attempt to elevate them? Rey in 2006 didn't light the world on fire, Batista in 2005 did.
Sheamus should get the "Diesel" spot in this years Rumble (eliminating guys as they come in for a spell). Best way to give huge face heat to a big man. But actually have him win the thing at the end.
Britani Knight debuted in FCW yesterday (ringbellesonline.com) If once Kharma returns WWE is actually going to try to run a meaningful women's division Britani could be excellent as either a heel or face as she can do arrogant bitch or sympathetic victim equally well.
Raw had a lot going for it: --post Rumble interest --good possibility of Foley on the show --good possibility of Benoit being on the show Let's see if they can sustain that rating, or if it is just a short term bump.
