I am not sure what the brackets will look like but I love the array of talent this year. It’s about time the young guys got pushed and this is the best way to do it. A lot has been happening in the WWE as of lately like The Miz becoming WWE Champion, John Cena being “fired” and Edge/Kane feud which has taken on a life of it’s own. I expect some big things out of WWE for the end of the year. The last couple of weeks have been good and lets see if they can finally get back on track. Only time will tell so stay tuned for more.
