I'm going to bet on a dark horse here and say Drew McIntyre.
I know he has been at the bottom of the barrel this whole year, but this past Friday made me remember how much potential this guy has.
It also helps that SD! is lacking in star power right now.
I know this isn't a very smart bet, but I will feel very proud if my prediction actually happens.
TBH, being on SD is a good thing for him cause it feels like the WHC is the new ECW Title in that they'll give the belt to any deserving midcarder. Although I can see him just taking Rhodes' IC Title so Rhodes can move up to main-event level.

I know Dolph Ziggler technically had a cup of coffee with the World Championship in 2011, but I think pretty much everybody has all but forgotten about it by now. I'm seeing a much more significant run with him as champion in 2012.
I think they're gonna hold off on Zack Ryder and bring him into the World Title picture a little more slowly, 2013 might be his year, but not 2012.
Another dark horse - R-Truth. I still think the WWE missed a huge opportunity by not giving him the title when he was red hot as a heel over the summer. Yeah yeah yeah CM Punk shooting blah blah blah, screw that noise, I wants me some crazy R-Truth calling out guys while wearing a Confederate uniform.

I will go out and buy a hat then eat it if Cody isn't a World Champion at some point in 2012.
No pictures, no gimmicks
Magic's list of people he's f***ing with rn: John Cena (Da God) Rey Mysterio (Living Legend) Handsome Rusev (New Japan, strap him up) R-Truth (He saves every segment he's in) Charlotte (The Queen) Hiroshi Tanahashi (Da God of NJPW) Bandido (Mans is too nice) Ricky Starks (Stroke Daddy)

I'm not a fan of having so many new Champions. The reason back in the day there were so many guys who deserved to be Champion but didn't get it, showed how valuable that title was. No, almost anybody can get it.
I'd like to see the WWE Title and World Title unified.
