Current Feuds That Need Some Juice

Lets take a look at a couple feuds that need a little more juice to be entertaining. Something seems to be missing, lets try to figure out what that is.
Sheamus vs Sandow
Whatâ€™s the point of this anyway? This feud started a few weeks ago but it has ever really taken off. I think partly because the crowd could care less for either performer. Sheamus has hit a plateau lately where the fans arenâ€™t really into him and the creative canâ€™t find anything for him to do. And Sandow, while entertaining on the mic, has been a jobber for the past 6 months. The only way this feud can work is if they plan on putting Sandow over and starting a singles push. I think he would be the perfect guy to get a win over Sheamus and start going after the US belt. Sheamus has a good enough resume where a loss wont hurt him at all, and Sandow needs that signature win to catapult him into relevant mid-card status. Sadly, it looks to me like this is just another way to get Sheamus a win and keep Sandow as a jobber to the stars for now. I sure hope Iâ€™m wrong.
Wade Barrett vs The Miz
Well, this has been a clusterfuck hasnâ€™t it? Barrett has been booked horribly since winning back his title the night after â€˜mania, and Miz just looks lost with his character. Clearly his face turn hasnâ€™t worked out and his prickish â€œreally??!!â€ routine doesnâ€™t quite work as a good guy. When these two are in the ring they look clumsy and out of rhythm. Not that we would know since each one gets maybe 3 minutes per Raw to show case their talents. Thank god Fandango has been put into this feud to try to salvage it. (And no, that wasnâ€™t written sarcastically) It seems pretty obvious that creative has no faith in Barrett or Miz, so I see Fandango getting his shot as IC champ. I hope it works out for him too. Even though his character may have peaked, his talents should still be showcased.
Alberto Del Rio vs Big E
I guess you would have to call this a feud by default, since they have faced each other every Raw and Smackdown for 3 weeks straight. I had hoped that Big E would be built up as a monster (still is I guess) that couldnâ€™t be beaten, but that went by the wayside pretty quickly thanks to Del Boro. He still has an aura about him that I like, and I see really big things for him on the future, but this feud is just treading water. Del Rio is just as boring and lost as a face as Miz is. He cant connect to the crowd, and the biggest reaction he gets is thanks to his announcer being able to say â€œoohâ€ for 10 seconds. If this mini-feud does continue Id like to see Big E come out on top and eventually break free and feud with Ziggler. A MITB win would do Big E a lot of good going forward, but sadly, losing to Del Rio will not.
