    Hopefully this is a sign that either Steamboat or Rollins are due for a push to the main roster or that one of them will be getting a singles push to the FCW title.

    Agreed. Seth Collins was fantastic in ROH (Tyler Black). I’ve been anxiously awaiting his move to the main roster since he joined the E’ I can only hope we’ll get to see him work with Danielson or Punk sooner, rather than later.

    I’m not as familiar with Richie Steamboat, but if he’s got a sliver of the talent his dad has, he might just be the next Rock. Pappa Rick has been guiding him carefully through the early stages of his career, and has seen to it that when he does get called up, he comes with a wealth of wrestling knowledge gained by a very well rounded foundation, garnered by working all over the world.
