    I think it be a good time for this fight. Ellenberger is on a 2 fight losing streak with both losses being fairly one-sided (I know it was a boring fight with Rory but Ellenberger literally did jack shit). Story himself is coming off a close loss. And Lawler put an absolute beating on him.

    Ellenberger could use a bit of a step down in competition rankings wise. Likewise, Story could potentially springboard back into relevancy with a win. The fight already has a story line. Story outwrestled Ellenberger to a decision and they both kept shit talking after the match, with Ellenberger having to be removed from the ring for aggression.

    EDIT: It also should be noted Ellenberger is 2-3 in his last 5.

    Could be really exciting, especially if Ellenberger can get his head right, Story always comes to fight.

    It would make sense. Though I'd honestly prefer that both would fight different fringe top 10 opponents to try to work back up the ladder. Another loss for either would put the lower pretty close to being on the chopping block. That'd be 3 losses in a row for Ellenberger and make him 2-4 in his last 6. A loss for Story would make him 3-6 in his last 9.

    I believe Ricks got Doomday next but I'd prefer Ellenberger vs Koscheck right now either way
