Who would you like to see get a long WWE World Heavyweight Championship reign? Personally, I'd love to see Dolph Ziggler (glad to see him win at Summerslam) or Dean Ambrose get big time main even pushes and title runs.

@foreverman: I didn't agree with everything in that video but Cena deserves a portion of the blame. That is my stance on it. Idk how much of it because I'm not sitting in with WWE creative every week. I just think that a guy like Cena has a pretty big say when it comes to his own brand. If he wanted to help other guys out, I'm pretty sure he could. That is purely speculation on my part, I know. I just think it makes logical sense.
@madeinbangladesh: Agreed. Triple H may have buried talent in the past but he seemed to change as he got up there in years. The lifeblood of professional wrestling is continuously finding the next big thing and setting them up to be the top guy. During the attitude era, arguably the best time in pro wrestling, there was a wealth of talented stars who took over the spotlight in cycles as the older guys took a step down. In the current WWE we have a weird scenario where the perceived top-tier talent pool is so shallow because none of the guys can get a proper push these days. They may get pushed for a bit and then they get dropped and have to fight to the top again. I can't even count the number of times that, Dolph Ziggler for example, has seemingly been set up for a major push only to be stonewalled before he even gets a fair shot at the top. The same can be said for a number of other guys on the roster.
Also, I just want to say that it has been years since I've had a lengthy wrestling discussion with anybody. It's been a pleasure.
@madeinbangladesh: Especially since I actually felt like many of the talents named could have been legitimate top guys. In the current WWE there are basically two top guys: Randy Orton and John Cena. Everything the WWE does seems to be about putting these guys over or giving them something to do between title runs. It took guys like Big Show and Chris Jericho putting John Cena over to get him to where he is today so it is astounding to me that he wouldn't do the same for some of the rising stars.
I love how people are complaining batman won yet very few (like 2-3 people) bothered to make a case for star lord. If you didn't argue for star lord in the main thread you shouldn't have the right to complain about the outcome.
@madeinbangladesh: It really is a shame that so many young talents failed to get necessary pushes because the WWE was too scared to put the belt on anyone but Cena for so long. I know a lot of that isn't necessarily Cena's fault but it's hard not to blame him for it. I respect his passion for the industry but I am just beyond sick of him. If he had a heel turn then maybe I'd cut him some slack but he has been playing the same character for soooooooooooo long now.
@m3th: I feel the same way as you about the Ruthless Aggression Era. It is the era that I watched the most of and I loved it. Idk if I'm right, but it seemed like either Corey or possibly both of them confused the parameters of the RAE because when talking about it Corey mentioned that Miz and Cena had a main event at Wrestlemania but at that point we were already into the "PG" Era. Evolution is my all time favorite stable and I absolutely loved to hate them. Plus, Chris Jericho is my favorite wrestler ever and the RAE was the last time he performed consistently. These days he goes on hiatus quite often. I can't blame the guy but wrestling is a lot less fun for me when he isn't around.
