Kane better not be joining the Family. There's no need for it.

 

I said this last week, that I kind of like the idea of Kane joining them, if he actually becomes one of Wyatt's henchmen. Not have it as The Wyatt Family AND KANE, but just have Kane be completely brainwashed and do his bidding just like Brodie and the ranga.

 

Having a big star on the level of Kane be converted by Wyatt would be a pretty powerful statement about his cult leader powers. Much more than only brainwashing a bunch of scrubs, if you get me. In wrestling, usually the real stars are too smart to be taken in by cult leaders, only the stupid f*cks are gullible enough. That would make it different.

I'm just saying, people were convinced he would never challenge for the world title again. It was just a nice surprise for this to happen.

 

I don't think they were really, not that he'd literally never have another title shot ever again. The World Title is a midcard belt, it isn't beyond him. People were telling you that his primary job is to put people over, which is still true since the point of this is for him to put Alberto over while he has nothing better to do.

It was surprising even for me. I was convinced Orton or RVD would be getting the shot seeing as, on surface, they both had more momentum than Christian has / had.

 

I'm not a huge fan of Del Rio though to be honest, hopefully Christian takes the title at Summerslam and goes on to have a feud with Ziggler or something.

No. That makes no sense. The Del Rio/Ziggler feud hasn't had a really logical conclusion yet, Ziggler is just distracted by Tits McGee and AJ. After he's dispatched with those two, he'll take Del Rio's belt.

 

EDIT: Look'it me. Applying logic to rasslin'.
