Sheamus' Push

In yesterday's post, I wrote about how good the episode of WWE Raw featuring Jesse Ventura was.

It wasn't just Ventura's appearance that made it a great show.

Last week, we saw Kofi Kingston make further progress in his feud against Randy Orton and even scored the deciding pinfall against him at the Survivor Series on Sunday night.

The Kingston push continued on Monday as he and Orton were paired off again.

This time, they were in a battle royal where the former Jamaican and now Ghanan (kayfabe) eliminated the Legend Killer.

The company - when they got Kofi to change his accent from Jamaican to his normal voice - are proving they are serious about pushing new faces in order to keep the product from going stale.

It was even more evident that their priority is to freshen up the storylines by having Sheamus as a key wrestler.

Sheamus has been unstoppable since debuting on Raw. It has been a long time since I have seen the company have so much confidence in a relatively new act.

And it's all good.

Sheamus was positioned to the win the aforementioned battle royal and - as victor - he is now programmed in a feud with WWE Champion, John Cena.

It may be too early to put the belt on him but - if I were in charge - I would pull the trigger and give him the win.

What do they have to lose?
