WWE Night of Champions: 5 Wrestlers Who We'd Rather See as World Champion

Since defeating Daniel Bryan in 18 seconds at WrestleMania for the world heavyweight championship, Sheamus has held the title and done fairly well with it.

The Great White himself has all the tools to be great, but a terribly boring feud with Alberto Del Rio has certainly taken some of the shine off his reign.

That isn't to say that Sheamus is necessarily a poor world champion, but many feel like it's time for a change. Sheamus has been absolutely dominant since winning the Royal Rumble and I don't believe he has lost so much as one singles match by pinfall or submission.

Sheamus' invincibility has irked some fans and it's one of the main reasons why he has fallen flat in recent weeks. With that said, the WWE has a very talented roster of superstars and there are several guys who could perhaps do a better job of carrying the flag for SmackDown than Sheamus.

A title change doesn't appear to be on the horizon, especially with Sheamus and Del Rio set to face each other yet again at Night of Champions. However, many fans are clamoring for it all the same, and it's tough to blame them based on the current state of the world heavyweight championship.

Here are five wrestlers who would be better as world champion than Sheamus has been to this point.
