Thought of the Day: The World Heavyweight Championship Dartboard

This contains a spoiler for this week’s Smackdown and next week’s Raw.At the moment, the WHC picture is a mess with no sign of any structure or semblance of a story.  Del Rio lost clean to Orton last week, beat Sheamus this week, and is going to beat Van Dam and lose to Christian on the next two TV shows.  So far these matches are totally random and seem to have no build to anything.  Odds are we’ll get a multi man match for the title at Summerslam, but with the matches just happening with no consequences, it makes the title look worthless.  Del Rio is just thrown out there and loses most of the time, but we’re supposed to still care about his title defenses.


Short version: quit having your champion wrestle random matches and lose most of them.

    The titles worthless, it’s doing the job the IC title could do (upper mid) with the USbas the mid card the last true top guy to hold the title was prob orton nearly 2 years ago, it’s do far below the WWE belt it’s unreal

    And people still think it’s a main event title.

    What should they do? Unless they have Cena showing up on Smackdown every week, they need to have a world champion on the show. But it’s only a World title in name.

    I thought Sheamus was fine as champion (when he wasn’t fighting Del Rio). His matches felt big, they were usually good, and the fans were itno them. Del Rio is just boring all around.

    M.R. Reply:

    We completely disagree on Sheamus. I see him as a big goof that has no business being in the main event scene with his current character. They’ve already got their goody-good character in Cena, why not let Sheamus have some edge to him? Anything other than that cheesy smile.

    I really have no issue with ADR and I think he’s had a pretty good run so far. That being said I do feel he should lose at Summerslam and fade out of the WHC picture for awhile.
