Alberto Del Rio and Sheamus will battle it out for the Celtic Warrior's World Heavyweight Championship one last time at Night of Champions on September 16, 2012. As a huge fan of the WWE, I am truly hoping that they wrap this particular feud up and get on with something new. These two have played this feud out about as far as you can go without it beginning to get really stale. Will Night of Champions finally be the end?
The Argument for Sheamus to Retain His Title
Alberto Del Rio is perhaps the most unpopular heel on the roster and that is not necessarily in a good way. He has incredible talent in the ring and will certainly be a champion again one day, but most fans seem to reject him as a champion. He does not feel right to me, primarily because he has not paid his dues in the WWE yet. He came in as a champion. Sheamus on the other hand has developed nicely over time. He started the same way as Del Rio, but then he had the chance to work a bit without the title and grow into the role. Sheamus is a much better champion than Alberto Del Rio would be at this point.
The Argument for Alberto Del Rio to Win
Alberto would certainly be a massive heat magnet and would make for some interesting feuds. Wherever he goes, the boo birds follow him like a beacon. Sometimes having a champion that is hated a great deal can be exactly what is needed. Although Del Rio is not my first choice, I can understand him taking the belt and having a run if the WWE goes that way. The big reason I would not like this is because Sheamus would then get a rematch and we are right back where we started.
What about Dolph Ziggler and Money In the Bank?
If I had my way I would want Ziggler to go ahead and cash in his contract at Night of Champions. He is so far overdue for a World Heavyweight Championship run that it is not even funny. Perhaps this is the night that Ziggler will finally put his destiny in motion. Maybe Del Rio could win the match but get beaten down afterwards by Sheamus and then Ziggler comes in and takes it from Del Rio. The pop from the crowd would be massive.
