The World Heavyweight Championship race has had a trend lately. We see two moderately interesting WWE Superstars fight for three PPVs, testing the patience of the entire WWE Universe. We saw it first with Alberto Del Rio and Sheamus and now with Sheamus and Big Show.
The first match in the Big Show-Sheamus series was surprisingly good. At their second meeting Big Show stole a sneaky victory, pulling the referee into the path of a Brogue Kick, showing that the feud would roll on for a few more weeks.
Roll on it has. Booker T had the two Superstars sign a no-contact contract so they can't even fight in the weeks before the match.
This feud has run its course. They've had a few great matches and have made SmackDown exciting for a few minutes a week.
As the only major championship match on the card, this match will have to do something amazing to keep the feud interesting and make up for the void left by CM Punk.
To add lukewarm fuel to the boring fire, it's a chairs match.
This match doesn't have the firepower to be a main event match. It's not even the best match on the card, which, as the biggest championship up for grabs on Sunday, it should be.
