I know that Batista is "younger" in years of experience in the WWE, but he's actually 4 years older than Edge and 11 years older than Orton so I don't see how his being "younger" is an issue. They might as well give him a shot now before he starts to break down.
I could definitely see HBK "accidentally" helping Triple defeat either Batista or Orton to later find out it was on purpose. Leading to HBK/HHH vs. Orton/Batista.
Poor Jericho and Benoit, they should be shipped to Smackdown and take turns holding their title belt.
I hope the WWE is smart enough to take HHH, Orton and Batista totally out of the title picture and have them side feud for a while. If they really want shock value and a stellar Elimiantion Chamber final three, have all six brawl and have HHH eliminate Batista by "accident". Then while he is "apologizsing" to Batista, have Orton give HHH an RKO and eliminate HHH. Then while Orton is celebrating, have Edge spear him and eliminate Orton. You are then left with the thre ebest workers in the Chamber and a chance to shake up the title picture. Edge will have to beone of the last ones left and since Benoit can feud with Batista, have Jericho and Edge the final two. Give Edge the strap and let HHH/Batista and Orton have their fued on the side. Benoit, Jericho, HBK and Edge can vie for the title for a while. The ORton/HHH/batista feud does not need the title. That feud can stand alone.
And before the replies come back, yes I know that will never happen.
I think you're an asshole. No, no, let me correct that, an immature asshole. Which is fine, except that you're marrying my daughter and I'm afraid that my grandchildren are gonna be little assholes.
