The CHAMPS are here?!

It appears that there are now TWO, WWE Champions.  Last night's Raw saw John Cena capture the WWE Championship for the ninth time.  His victory celebration was cut short by the return of CM Punk.  Punk casually walked to the ring to the tune of Cult of Personality, his old ROH entrance music.  He was wearing the WWE Championship that he won eight days prior at the Money in the Bank ppv.  The tension continued to the build as he stood proudly in front of the New WWE Champion, John Cena.

It does not take a genius to figure out that this is going to lead to a HUGE match at SummerSlam.  The question is, WHO will leave SummerSlam as the TRUE WWE Champion?

WWE's 2011 Money in the Bank PPV was without question the best PPV of the year. I would even argue it has been one of the best PPV's of the past several years. The entire show, with exception to the Diva's Title Match, was perfect. Unfortunately, Kelly Kelly looked sloppy when compared to her oponent, Brie Bells. Every match was entertaining. Even the John Cena main event was a fantastic match lasting over 30 mins. Kudos to Cena and CM Punk alike for putting their all into that match.

Smackdown MITB Winner
With 23% of the MOFW Poll votes, Cody Rhodes was looking like the Smackdown Superstar that might be the MITB winner. His exceptional performance was not enough to earn him the victory. Much to the surprise of everyone, Daniel Bryan, pulled out the victory. If he manages to keep the MITB streak alive and walk away from WrestleMania XXVIII as the NEW World Heavy Weight Champion, it will prove that the US Championship is a stepping stone for World Heavy Weight and/or WWE Champions.

Raw MITB Winner
The MIZ DOMINATED the MOFW Polls with 58% of the votes. He even tasted victory by selling a leg injury early into the match, only to return later in the match to almost grab the MITB brief case. The MITB victory was destined for another competitor, Alberto Del Rio! Del Rio claimed his victory and became the first Superstar to win the Royal Rumble and Money in the Bank in the same year. His track record is beginning to hint that it just might be his "Destiny," to be the future WWE Champion.

At the end of the day, the MITB PPV was worth every penny.  Full of memorial moments for years to come, we all hope the WWE can deliver this type of performance EVERY PPV!

Most Valuable Free Agent

Is Mark Henry the Most Valuable Free Agent? Over the past few weeks, we've seen him DESTROY Big Show and anyone else that gets in his way.  Tweez Family has dubbed him, the next Big Van Vader.

Next Sunday's, Money in the Bank, PPV results may solidify his position in the WWE.  If there are no injuries over the next few months, Mark Henry will no doubt be one of, if not THE, Most Valuable Free Agent at the October 24th Supplemental Draft.

Rookie Report: Richie Steamboat

Richie Steamboat has been wrestling in FCW since December of 2009. Although Richie has only been on the professional wrestling scene since 2008, he has been able to travel the world to learn the craft. Richie has trained and toured with World Level Wrestling (owned by wrestling legend Harley Race), Pro Wrestling Noah in Japan, World Wrestling Council in Puerto Rico, and All Star Wrestling in England. With a wrestling style that has a good mix of striking, arial attacks, and submission holds, Richie looks to be a solid pick for WWE stardom. A handful of his moves will look very familiar to wrestling fans, as they were staple maneuvers used by his father, the wrestling hall of famer Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat. Richie is a former FCW Florida Tag Team Champion.

Here are some thoughts from Team Minor Threat about their round 9 Rookie Draft pick:

"Team Minor Threat made Richie Steamboat their rookie selection based on a variety of factors: first he is the son of Ricky the Dragon Steamboat and to carry on the father's name and legacy means a lot...second before joining the WWE developmental territory FCW, Richie traveled all over the country and all over the world paying his dues and gaining experience with a variety of styles. Couple that international flavor with the development he is receiving in FCW and that's a plus."
