The Polling Place: Real Americans, Daniels and Kazarian, Renee Young

Whom will Colter get to replace Cesaro?

Welcome to another new feature, The Polling Place. I will present some polls for y'all on the hot topics of the week. First up, after losing Antonio Cesaro from his stable to the clutches of Paul Heyman, Zeb Colter is looking for another Real American to replace his model of legal immigration. The field seems infinite for Colter to choose from, but since Heyman took Cesaro away, the most logical choice to replace Cesaro should be someone to get back at Heyman, right? That criterion places both Ryback and Curtis Axel, both unceremoniously dumped as Heyman Guys, right in the crosshairs. The other choices might not be so obvious. He could pick someone already on the roster, or more likely someone from NXT. Who will get the nod?

Next up, rumblings abound that Christopher Daniels and Kazarian, known collectively as Bad Influence, have wrestled their last matches for TNA. Both wrestlers have been mainstays for the company for a long time now, although both their affiliations have come with interruption. With any release, a certain portion of the fanbase will clamor for them to sign with WWE. Obviously, WWE is selective with whom they take from TNA, and they almost exclusively stay away from veterans of the company who haven't already appeared for them or for other companies like WCW. However, SHOULD WWE reconsider in the case of Bad Influence, especially since the company's rumored cruiserweight show could use a bit of an experienced presence?

Finally, ESPN has made overtures to sign Renee Young to an anchor position at its network. The company has taken personalities from WWE before like Jonathan Coachman and Todd Grisham. However, neither of the two has gained as much of a cult following as Young has in her tenure with WWE. The big question is how devastated would you be if she left WWE and went to ESPN?
