this really has me interested. I thought Angle might win it to set up Brock vs. Angle @ Summerslam. Now it looks as if Big Show might win with the help of Mr. Mcmahon to set up Brock vs Vine and Angle vs. Show @ Summerslam. Whats everyone else think??
Im gonna have to go with Show. Angle and Brock do NOT need the belt to generate interest in a long series of matches between them, giving show the belt, can give a new series of faces (benoit when he loses to Geurerro) a shot at the belt, without having to put them over Angle or Brock.
Originally posted by knightvibeI think if SHow wins it allows them to delay the rematch og Angle & Brock. Getting these guys over as true friends that could break up at anytime could mean a lot in 6 months.
I actually agree. Kind of like a Mega Powers explode kind of thing. However, if Big show wins who will he face at Summerslam, Benoit will probably still be feuding with Eddie. They can turn Cena face, but I dont think he is ready for the main event just quite yet, I guess they can go with Taker, but I dont know how many people want to see that. They can put him against Brock, but thats been played out. I think Taker or Angle would be the only options for Summerslam if Show wins.
I think Big Show should win and this can set up a little competition between Angle and Lesner where they try to prove they are the one who deserves a shot at the belt. Maybe have Lesner go after the US title to prove he is worthy, while Angle can find a partner and go after Benjamin and Haas. This can lead to a match between the two at Survivor series. I think there would still be great interest in a Angle vs Lesner match even if it wasn't for the belt.
This would allow the championship to go to other wrestlers and after Survivor Series, there can be a feud between either Angle or Lesner and the new champ which would lead into Wrestlemania.
Damn they need someone else credible enough to be Champ on Smackdown. I was playing SYM and tried to make a good 4-way TLC for the title and had to have the match of Big Show, Undertaker, Angle, and Lesnar. Id like to see Show win and go on a run of destruction. Build him up as a big deal.
I LOVE WRESTLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
I say give the belt to Show. Let him defend the title against the likes of Benoit, Eddie and then drop it to Taker (not one week right after the other, but have a feud with each one). Then give Cena a shot but have Taker retain. Then Taker either drops the belt back to Big Show who then loses to Angle or Lesnar, or he Taker drops it directly to Angle or Lesnar. Then you set up Angle vs. Lesnar 2 then, closer to Wrestlemania (or atleast wait until Royal Rumble).
In the meantime you make Lesnar and Angle continue their friendship and feud with Benjamin and Haas. Put the tag titles on Lesnar and Angle and let them hold onto the belts for a while.
It's been widely reported in the dirtsheets, so I think it's a notch above fantasy booking/conjecture at this point. Regardless, I just found it weird to get irate about a booking decision which is clearly anything but random.
