And if you're 11 years old, then I'm frankly amazed that you even know who RVD is. Plus, he's not even made his return yet, and you've placed him at #2? Very strange.
Here's mine (I've tried to do this in order)
I'm very glad that Christian is finally back. And with all the talk that the reason he was kept off so long was because they were waiting for creative to come up with something for him, I'm excited to see where he goes from here and what he does in the coming weeks, since I'm assuming that he's come back because they have figured out a plan for him. I predict a feud with Curtis Axel for the IC title though hat will eventually put Axel over. Is a MITB win too much to hope for? Probably, but we can dream, right?
9) Seth Rollins
Doing the business in the ring as The Shield's standout in-ring wrestler and he's also constantly improving on the mic. I'm looking forward to see who him and Reigns have their first real feud with.
8) Dean Ambrose
Doing the business in the ring and doing the business on the mic. Yes, his selling still needs work, we get that, but that's about the only flaw he has right now, and one that's not exactly hard to cure. I'm glad that WWE are keeping The Shield interesting, since we've seen so many angles involving groups fizzle out into obscurity.
7) Dolph Ziggler
Gets it done in the ring. His match vs Del Rio at Payback was great, even if he didn't win. Like Ambrose, his selling is questionable, but there we go, I can look past that. He's proven to be able on the mic too which is great. It's disappointing that his recent WHC run was marred by that concussion so that he was off tv for the entirety of the run pretty much. I'm curious to see where Ziggler goes from here though. Will he still be with AJ and Big E now that he's face? We'll see I guess.
6) Antonio Cesaro
I was so disappointed when they decided to water down Cesaro towards the end of his US title run. They had him humiliating himself and had him trade in cutting promos for yodelling. Ridiculous. Alas, that's stupid thing has been kicked, and he's now joined Zeb Colter and (assuringly) Jack Swagger when he returns. I think the Cesaro/Colter partnership is great for Cesaro. At least it will make him relevant again. The only down side is that I'm guessing he won't have as much mic time now as he did when he was solo (I say this based on how little mic time Swagger gets since siding with Colter), but Colter's a more than able mouthpiece, son it's not entirely a bad thing. Could we perhaps see Swagger and Cesaro competing in the tag division going forward? I certainly wouldn't mid that. They could be a formidable team given both men's excellent pure wrestling ability.
5) CM Punk
Only been back a couple of weeks, but he's not missed a step as far as I see. Put on a great match with Jericho at Payback (not as good as their Wrestlemania or Extreme Rules match, but up there) and again against Del Rio on Raw. I'm glad that he's face again too since the reception he's getting is great.
4) Paul Heyman
Not a wrestler, but I'm loving seeing Heyman on my tv screen on a regular basis again. Since he came back he's been excellent in hyping and adding another dimension to Brock Lesnar, CM Punk and now Curtis Axel feuds. Axel is still some way away from being top notch on the stick, but under the wing of Heyman, he's sure to learn. I hope that their partnership is a long term one so that Axel can really flourish and grow into his potential.
3) Chris Jericho
Still one of the best in the business. I'm struggling to think where Jericho gets time to sleep these days given how many careers he's juggling at once. He's wrestling on a a very hectic part time WWE schedule (he's doing house shows and live events and such as far as I know, more than other part timers do anyway), he's doing some tv stuff too (he did that Robot Warriors thing recently) and he's touring with his band and doing promotional work for them too. Yet he still turns out for WWE on a near enough weekly basis and delivers the goods. Matches are always good and his mic work is still top notch.
2) Mark Henry
Not purely because of his promo on last week's Raw, because Henry has been serving up the best work of his career for a while now. Ever since he turned heel and started his 'Hall of Pain' gimmick, he's been awesome to watch. His promos have been fantastic, and he's now a legitimate main event contender for either title. I sincerely hope that Henry wins and gets a run with the WWE Championship this summer. He absolutely deserves it, and he's as interesting these days as he's ever been or ever will be. He's not an awesome wrestler due to his size, but by God he makes up for that right now in his promo ability and storytelling.
1) Daniel Bryan
This man is the hottest property in WWE right now. Every single match he's put on recently has been nothing short of excellent, and the crowd are responding and are fully behind him. He's arguably the most over guy in the company at present. With the talk of him being pushed through the summer, I hope that they continue to push him as a face rather than turn him heel.
