[WARNING! This article contains WWE Smackdown Spoilers]
Just two days after he won the WWE world heavyweight championship, Christian lost the belt to Randy Orton at the Smackdown television tapings last night.
That wonderful moment that the WWE created at Extreme Rules, with Edge celebrating in the ring with Christian, meant absolutely nothing.
Orton, meanwhile, gets to be the man that rules Smackdown.
I am having a difficult time understanding this move—Orton is already a big star. He doesn't need the title to be a draw for the WWE.
The guys that need the rub are the guys that you want to give the push to, in order to make the business more interesting and profitable as a result.
Instead, we're stuck with John Cena as champion on Raw and Orton on Smackdown.
Despite the WWE's efforts to convince us that they want to shake things up, they really just want things to stay as bleak and dire as they are.
The one thing that the WWE got right this week was the debut of Kharma. Fans are really interested in her, and she is already the most interesting female wrestler that the company has had since Trish Stratus retired in 2006.
We will have the latest news and notes from the Smackdown tapings and all of professional wrestling throughout the day.
