    Wow that’s not abrupt and random or anything? Ziggler should cash in ASAP.

  2. Jono K says:

    Surely he’s a transitional champ for Ziggler??

  3. Joey says: posted the spoiler as well. Thats twice in 2 weeks WWE has given away that a title changed hands at a prerecorded show. They might be desperate to get the ratings back up

    If WWE are so desperate to get their ratings up, they shouldn’t have Del Rioverrated to be the World Champ.

    Man I hate to be that guy but it was reported several places that he missed RAW last night because of a family issue then the next night he wins the WWE World Championship somewhat randomly, and let’s be honest why the WWE sometime says & sometimes doesn’t that title connects back to the NWA title, one of the oldest/most prestigious wrestling titles in the world.

    I really hope this isn’t the case but “Family Issue” for a wrestler whose family contains a few older legendary wrestlers & then the next night he wins a title connected to the most prestigious title in the business. It almost sort of seems like (and man I hope not) that he was given the title so said family member could see him as that champ before said family member dies….

    IDK let’s just hope it’s because he threw a crybaby fit and threatened to leave or something & nothing to do with whatever family issues there may be.

  6. Swayze says:

    “Family issues” is often just a cover for a real issue since less people will try to pry on a family matter.

  7. Fisha695 says:

    Gotta say I’m loving the reaction on Social Media to this as it’s basically “Hey thanks now I can watch something else on Friday”, which is pretty much the exact opposite of what WWE wants to come out of spoiling things like this.

  8. Todd says:

    WWE spend so much time building Big Show back to a dominant heel, has an epic feud with Sheamus, then all of a sudden loses the title to Del Rio? Del Rio who was in limbo doing nothing then all of a sudden gets the belt?

  9. Fisha695 says:

    Could it be a Big Show drug test failure?

  10. jim says:

    Wow!!!! Not what I expected crowd must have went nutss

    this seemed a bit sudden. on a Smackdown taping, no less. good to see that i’m not the only one that’s suspicious of this.
