Guest Chriscare Posted June 27, 2007 Share Posted June 27, 2007 With Benoit no longer with us, it leaves a massive gap in ECW. No doubt he was meant to win the title on Sunday, and i really don't think they were planning on keeping it on Nitro for long. So where to now for ECW? Will someone else get put on the show, will someone be in store for a big push. Without Benoit there is a huge lack of star power for the show now. Personally i think they'll bring someone over from one of the other brands, ECW needs someone with the title to lead the brand, and i don't think anyone currently on the rost is able to do it. Perhaps Elija Burke has the potential to do it at some point but not at this time. The favourites for this for me would be: 1. Batista - Since Edge is meant to be keeping the title for a while, and it looks like they're feud is over, Batista is certainly avialable for it. 2. Matt Hardy - This could easily be Matt's time to get a world title run. He's been getting a great push lately and has been the best thing about Smackdown in recent weeks. I'm sure they've been pushing him to have another great feud with Edge, but i could easily see him making the jump. 3. Kane - He's been having random pointless matches on Smackdown since he moved. Kane is still very high in the ranks, and this would be a perfect time to push him. 4. King Booker - He's just been moved to Raw, but probably only as the next person to lose a feud to Cena. Moving him over to ECW would be a fantastic move in my opinion, prior to his injury King Booker was the greatest thing on Smackdown for about a year. 5. Randy Orton - Orton seems to never have much to do, they always seem to want to feud him with Cena but are clearly putting it off. Perhaps he's too young and unreliable to carry ECW though. 6. Umaga - Umaga seems to have nothing to do on Raw, perhaps with recent losses he's too weak to be put straight in with the ECW title though. 7. Lashley - Probably the least likely as he's just left, but putting him on Raw doesn't really make much sense to me, they've already got one unbeatable champ on there.
