Real Contenders for the U.S. title

Santino won the United States title. I get it, he is super over with the fans, Swagger draws no heat, and Swagger was a place holder. But that doesn't mean I (I REPEAT, I) have to like Santino. I have always considered Jack a pure, skilled, fresh wrestler (for those of you who didn't read my first blog), I loved the moment he won the title. But week after week, he did nothing.Nothing. Nothing. Lost the title. So here is who I think should win the title from Santino, or who should have won it from Swagger, up first..
real talent, turned face quite recently, still not on RAW or SD. But still more exciting on NXT than most of the people on RAW. Instead of this Kid(d) twiddling his thumbs, give him a proper title run even if he has to defend it on NXT.
Have to take off of kidcontra a little here, Otunga will be a single champion. He draws so much heat, even more so than most of the main-event heels on both shows, but too many people would rather see him job than do something with his career, even if it means a one day tag title reign (oh, wait, that did happen).
I think I turned heel with this one, but it's better than another wasted superstar waiting in the back for a push off of dark matches. Not to say he would be a better alternative then Santino, but not that much worse.
WWE might get mad and fire him if he so much as scuffed the title, but Miz deserves the title for having such an, um...interesting career. This would be an amazing way to get his heat and career back. IMO, Miz's title reign was much more exciting then everyone that followed him, so why not one more time?
Bear with me here. Double M is a good wrestler, a former tag-team champion, and (not much of a career accolade) Curt Hennig's son (I just hope Michael just sells a little bit less). Not a contender, but a little bit of work could clear that right up.
My Personal Numer 1 Favorite, Drew Mcintyre
Doesn't matter if he is gay, a playboy, or Scottish. Drew needs this, or the IC title to stay relevant to the "chosen one" thing that has been floating away in the harsh winds of bad scriptwriting and bad ideas. Drew (with work) could be the next Edge (excluding the sex, Vickie, and the unfortunate injury). But WWE needs, I repeat NEEDS to try with Drew to make him a star.
