hmm gonna have to agree to disagree.
first off there is no guarantee he would beat show or shemus as the wwe love to book ziggler as a joke so why should that stop now? a beaten up shemus or show would probably still pin ziggler also why would zig cash in his mib in the hopes of winning the title knowing full well he would then have to defend it against the biggest star in the company.
also to comment on your points
A) Making the belt a lil more relevant - i am not sure how it makes the belt more relevant the smackdown belt will always be second banana to the raw belt
B) Ziggler finally getting the spotlight - no way, he would probably instantly lose it because cena wins cena always wins
C) Unexpected turn of events – that’s true but the rule of thumb is any can happen in the wwe but never does
D) Filling in the large void which is CM Punk. – yes it does but if you didn’t know this was going to happen prior to the ppv you would have no incentive to order it so ziggler would have to announce it before hand which would wreck the surprise
But it seems like you are right. Sheamus, Big Show, Del Rio come to mind when I think of the WHC picture. None of them have that mega-IT factor that you see in recent WWE Champions - Punk, Cena, and Miz. Now if someone like the Miz or Ziggler entered that title picture, that'd be another story...
The topic has changed so much in this thread I've forgotten what it's about but instead of derailing because I am something something and something and shouldn't something because that something makes someone feel something.......
sorry what was I saying? Ok so the Miz is terrible and should never be in a program with cm punk. He is far too green and I just don't see him getting over enough as a face for him to reach a cena, orton, punk level. He might get to mysterio level which is upper mid card but the wwe title picture should be for people that can carry the company not fillers. Sorry miz you're out of your depth.
who knows? they just might to do that. It's highly likely.
