A tables match set up by Jesse Ventura after a battle royal. Sheamus had just become the #1 contender for John Cena's WWE Title. The PPV was TLC and everyone thought this match was filler material.
Much to the chagrin of many WWE fans, their worst nightmare occurred when they flipped on Raw the next night to discover that the impossible happened.
It appeared from raw stills that Cena kind of fell through the table on his own. So I am left with one question. Was Sheamus supposed to become champion?
One can only ask this question simply because WWE seemingly has no plans for Sheamus to win or lose a single match clean since picking up the belt. All DQ's are beginning to get old and if I were Sheamus, I would be questioning my character.
Let us face reality now. The first time he loses clean in the center of the ring, he gets knocked back down to mid-card status where he should still be. I dare say if this does not happen until WrestleMania, he might be finished period in the WWE.
The doubters and haters will all draw the same conclusion. He was a kid pushed into the spotlight and he could not handle it all so fast. As a matter of fact, he had the kid in the candy store look in his eyes the first couple of weeks he carried the belt around.
I am not necessarily a fan of Sheamus, but even I cannot dispute that he has natural ability and he is a gifted athlete that stands out in a crowd. In other words, he can help the McMahon family make some bank and that is what it takes to make it in this business.
The article can be summed up quickly simply by saying: Please WWE, do something with Sheamus or knock him back down quickly. You are ruining his career every day you continue to allow the facade of him carrying WWE gold around his waist. Give him a couple of clean victories on Raw against former World Champions or strip his title at Elimination Chamber and allow a veteran to headline WrestleMania. You just have to have a good game plan or you will kill his career.
