Now, this is where it gets interesting!
After a tag match that finished with Jericho besting the Heavyweight Champion and also an accidental Brogue Kick from Sheamus to the Viper, John Laurinaitis changed the match between The Great White and The Mexican Aristocrat by adding Y2J and Randy Orton.
This is a match that could go any way, except, in my opinion, with Del Rio winning the title. Alberto has been the least-mentioned and least-seen superstar from the match, and that got me to consider him being a bad choice for the world champ, for right now, at least.
Chris Jericho is a pretty big wild card. If he wins, he could give a new name to the belt, but I also don't think that losing would hurt him. Also, him winning would kind of justify the "end of the world as you know it" stuff he had going on.
Orton in my mind is less probable to win than Jericho. Orton doesn't really need the win, and I don't see WWE benefiting too much from him carrying the title, either. Maybe a feud with Jericho or Sheamus could be better.
If WWE wants to play it safe, I think it'll have Sheamus retain. But I would go against that idea, since SmackDown has been pretty down on ratings since The Great White became champion (and I hate checking on the ratings). And ever since Sheamus retained against Daniel Bryan in that great match at Extreme Rules, he's been kind of downplayed in my opinion. But I wouldn't be surprised if he actually does retain.
It's hard, but I think Sheamus will overcome the odds and move on to fight with either Jericho or Orton in one-on-one matches afterwards.
