WWE SummerSlam 2012: 5 Better Choices for the World Title Match (Spoiler)
It's disclosure time again. If you are not a fan of spoilers, there is no need to read any further.
Especially if you are looking forward to all that the WWE has in store for this Friday night's SmackDown.
Now that we have that out of the way, time to get down to business.
During Tuesday night's SmackDown tapings, G.M. Booker T reinstated the Sheamus/Alberto Del Rio match. To me, this move was a bit senseless, as it really didn't deliver any bang and kind of made Booker look foolish for being so upset the week prior.
Ultimately, I feel the WWE is better than this.
Right now, they have several established stars that could easily have fit the bill and a few guys that are ready to move up. This would have made it seem like Del Rio was truly in the doghouse and allowed for Del Rio to interfere in the macth and further the storyline.
Since they decided to bring the match back into the fold, I decided to take things into my own hands by selecting five challengers better suited for Sheamus' World title.
Bryan is stuck in a senseless match with Kane.
If this match had happened about a month ago, it would have been more relevant than it is today.
Bryan is already solidified himself as a true main-eventer, so why not have him seek some WrestleMania revenge.
As we all know by now, Orton is officially off the card at SummerSlam.
Orton confirmed this via Twitter stating:
Randy Orton (@RandyOrton) August 9, 2012
Now, it's believed this move could be a form of punishment due to his recent infraction. Ultimately, Orton draws and could easily put Sheamus over or take the reigns and run with the title.
Either way, Orton is a way better option than Del Rio.
Mahal is in the midst of a huge feud with Ryback.
However, WWE officials are allegedly high on him becoming the next main-event heel.
So why not have him take on Sheamus as a last-minute replacement?
This allows the WWE to really gauge whether or not Mahal can pull off a main-event push.
Not to mention, it proves to Mahal that the WWE truly has faith in him.

To me, Barrett doesn't need to be advertised.
Ultimately, Booker could list him as a mystery opponent. This would allow for a huge pop and would give Barrett some buzz for his return.
In the end, Barrett and Sheamus have history and some unfinished business. And what better way to shore things up than to face off at the biggest event of the summer?
Currently, Rhodes is on a bit of a losing streak.
However, we all are aware of his potential. Rhodes is great on the mic and can go in the ring; right now, that's all you really need for a last-minute add-on match.
Even though Cody would probably lose, however, if Ziggler cashes in, it could allow for a Ziggler/Rhodes feud down the line.
