WWE SmackDown: Showcasing the Redundancy of the World Heavyweight Title Picture
Since he captured the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 28, Sheamus has represented the title quite well, making nearly every match competitive.
Although he has brought a level of excitement to the title picture, there has been one person who has brought no intrigue to the title mix at all.
In 2011, he was a WWE All-Star regarding his achievements throughout the year. He won the first and only 40-man Royal Rumble to "main event" WrestleMania (although he technically didn't main event, or wasn't even near the main event), won the Raw Money in the Bank match, cashed it in at one of the biggest pay-per-views of the year—SummerSlam—and captured the WWE Championship on two occasions.
Now, it seems like the WWE is trying to revive a push that has ran its course. Alberto Del Rio is not a top guy, and he shouldn't be force-fed to the WWE Universe for us to believe that he is.
If this No. 1 contender match indeed happens at SummerSlam, it will mark the third PPV that Del Rio has been in the World Heavyweight Championship match (Over the Limit and Money in the Bank). In neither of those matches did he look impressive enough to gain another opportunity to become World Heavyweight Champion.
Yes, Dolph Ziggler is waiting for the right moment to cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase, and when the dust settles, he will most likely become the champion. However, the WWE title picture should not revolve around Alberto Del Rio. There are many other choices (including the other three opponents that fought on SmackDown), and Del Rio should just wait in line for his time to come again.
Honestly, his time as a main event superstar may have passed.
Do you think Del Rio should still be involved in the World Heavyweight Championship picture? Comment civilly below.
Should ADR be involved in the WHC picture?
