    Gimme a damn break… Christian for the World Title match? Come on… I’m tired of the guy… fire him! RVD should be going for the title.

    • allanmccann

      what! christian is awesome and totally deserves this. and rvd isnt even going to be champ hes under a short term contact with limited appearances. man i know we disagree but how can you hate on christian there not a wrestler in the lockeroom doesnt respect the hell out of him

      • Nabil

        Its only fitting that Christan gets the title shot; he has been with the company forever and has battled through some awesome matches.He is not the most talented wrestler,( Dolph Zigler is more talented/athletic), but deserves to hold the title for a short reign.

    whats the point in bringing back RVD if he’s not being pushed?

    • allanmccann

      so he can have great matches with guys thats the whole reason he came baxk….whats the point of pushing a 40 year old dude who done it all? and there never going to make him champ cause hes under a short term contact with limited dates.

  • Ralph Ramos

    To me, Dolph Ziggler should’ve gotton the shot at the World title. I know he already got 2 big title matches, but what was the point in hyping him up with the World title MITB cash in and then stealing his thunder by giving the title back to a now heal Del Rio and holding him back in the process. They should’ve made a last chance steal cage match for SummerSlam between the 2. Ziggler would really prosper from the win, maybe even becoming the next Stone Cold because he’s already so over. Its a win-win situation for both Ziggler and the WWE. He has the look, talent, skill, and heart of a champion.
