Essay Question: (I chose a few random responses.)
Will Eddie Guerrero or Chris Benoit ever hold the WWE/World Titles again?
Eddie Guererro and Chris Benoit will become heavyweight champs again…..if they jump ship and join TNA. To answer the question, no. Why? One, Triple H beat them to Stephanie McMahon! Two, Vince McMahon has this fixation with screwing over anyone that worked with Ted Turner. It’s not enough that Turner forwarded WCW to him. In my eyes, he takes the disrespect to a whole new level by degrading some of the company’s finest. For instance, Scott Steiner! He went from multi-time WCW heavyweight champ to Test’s flunky that worked Heat cards. Another example, Booker T! A five time champ, who hasn’t worn that belt since coming to Raw. Benoit had to take the journey of a jobber, before getting the belt he once held. Look at Perfect Event! One of the up and coming stables in WCW! Where are they now? Chuck Palumbo- pretty much a jobber! Shawn Stasiak- fired without being given a fair shot! Sean O’Haire- before getting the pink slip, he was Piper’s henchman? Mark Jindrak- relegated to serving Kurt Angle.
Umm…. no. They put on more entertaining matches whenever the pressure of being World champ isn’t on them. They should go after the US/IC Title.
I think they both will hold the titles again but Benoit will get again it well before eddie. Eddie was a good champ for smackdown but the pressure got to eddie cause he was the top guy on smackdown the fans loved him but the rating started to drop, as we all know eddie has got a short fuse so when vince thinks eddie will be alright eddie will be champ again Now Benoit was one of the best champs on raw he brought the best out the game HHH, HBK AND KANE THESE MATCHES WERE AMAZING TO WATCH!!! It was great to see randy orton win the title but i think benoit should have kept for a while like until armageddon atleast and then let orton win the title. So Benoit will get the title back as soon as this HHH AND ORTON feud is over!
Benoit: most likely will hold one of the two main titles again. With too much face competition on Raw, he should probably return to Smackdown and feud with Angle for the WWE. As for Guerrero: Unfortunately, doubtful he will again hold one of the “big two”. From everything between the lines reported by the IWC, another title run doesn’t seem in Eddie’s best interest or wishes as of now. The impression I have is that Eddie can not, should not, and does not wish to deal with the pressure of being a world/WWE champion.
