After a heartfelt testimonial by the newest face in the company, the once proclaimed “Intellectual Savior of the Masses” could be exactly what the WWE needs as a fan favorite that isn’t the over-the-top sensation of Dolph Ziggler or the rugged heavyweight like Roman Reigns. Being in the middle of the pack will actually help Sandow’s career. If the WWE bills him correctly.
For the first time since 2010, WWE held a ‘King of the Ring’ tournament to crown a their new King. The opening round took place last night on RAW inside of the Resch Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The semi-finals and finals will air live and exclusively on the WWE Network at 8 p.m. ET tonight.
Round 1 Results:
• Bad News Barrett vs. Dolph Ziggler: Barrett defeats Ziggler...
It’s safe to assume the Superfinger will never become a move in Dolph Ziggler’s repertoire.
@HEELZiggler tween girls love you. You're the Dane Cook of wrestling!

One idea the above exchange does bring to mind: A Dane Cook-inspired wrestler...
John Cena says the match won't be pretty and may not even involve him. Every time he issues the US Open Challenge, you have a chance to see a new champion. So, enough about RAW and Extreme Rules. This is Smackdown, and there will be another challenge right now.
I've got good news and I've got bad news. The good news is that Daniel Bryan is in a WWE title match at WrestleMania 31. The bad news is that it's an intercontinental championship match, a match he would be far better off losing than winning.
