Now Punk is nobbled and looking at the viewing numbers, I'm more convinced that Cena will get the WHC hot shotted to him. The WHC still appears regularly on Raw and Cena has been on Smackdown more lately.
Honestly guys. It doesn't matter if he cashes before. Either way, either the briefcase or the title are hanging during their match. Whichever Cena grabs, he eventually or immediately becomes WHC champion. The implications of this match are MASSIVE. If Cena wins, its practically a guaranteed title unification match vs Rock at Mania.
It also means, Zigglers momentum is crushed yet again. The outcome of this match could determine if Ziggs becomes the next HBK or the next Roddy Piper. If he leaves TLC with the briefcase, he might just walk into Mania the WHC Champion. If he leaves empty-handed, he'll be lost in no mans land, no where near either title (cause Rock and Cena are occupying both), and he'll probably end up in an effing tag match at Mania. I could go on for an hour about how much I despise the briefcase being on the line here.
Dolph's been busting his ass for over 5 years, held that briefcase for over 6 months, he's FINALLY cracking the main-event surface, and Vince is going to hand HIS briefcase to the 16 time Champion, so he can cash in his SECOND BRIEFCASE THIS YEAR??? YUCCKKKKKKKKKK.
ha ha! I hadnt thought about the possibility of Ziggler cashing in prior to the TLC PPV. That would be gold! But now that Punk's already off the card, this would ruin another of their buy rate matches.
The problem for Ziggler, Vince and HHH dont see him as a face of the company type. I dont think he's pissed anyone off (like Kennedy when he had to drop his MITB to Edge)... but I kind of got the feeling Ziggler wouldnt win, especially after Big Show became the champ.
E. None of the above...
1. Can't downplay Sheamus and Big Show, plus, the belt is what it is.
2. Ziggler doesn't deserve the spotlight because he sucks.
3. Unexpected turn of events is probably closest, though Cena in main event is not unexpected.
4. No CM Punk is a vast improvement.
