After yet another convoluted ending at WWE’s SummerSlam in the World Heavyweight championship match between Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio, there was little doubt that the feud would continue into the next pay-per-view, Night of Champions.
Now, it looks like the worst-case scenario for fans bored of this never-ending feud has come true
F4WOnline.com is reporting (via WrestleZone) about the continuation of the Sheamus/Del Rio feud and the end of last night’s SummerSlam match:
The finish to last night's World Championship match was reportedly the planned finish for the bout all along. The finish was done to setup a rematch between Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio at next month's Night of Champions PPV.
While both men are solid workers on their own, together, they have done nothing impressive to separate themselves from the rest of the card. Every match feels like it’s the same as the last.
Now that this feud is continuing on for at least another month, the WWE must have something up its sleeve or fear losing the few remaining fans that care even a shred about the World title or the combatants in the matches.
One solution could be Wade Barrett.
With Triple H, Brock Lesnar, Shawn Michaels and possibly Paul Heyman disappearing for the near future, bringing back Barrett to become part of the World title scene is an absolute must this Monday on Raw.
Just like WrestleMania is the ending to stories and the Raw following starts the next set of storylines, the same can be said for SummerSlam. With almost no interest in Sheamus and Del Rio now, Barrett’s return couldn’t come at a better time.
Not only will it add intrigue to the world title scene, but it will save the WWE from using Dolph Ziggler’s Money in the Bank contract to try and save the stagnant product. The longer he holds that briefcase, the better it is for his career.
No matter how it goes down, something or someone new has to be infused into this feud over the next month, or the match at Night of Champions will be the least entertaining match for a World title in history.
