How many gunshot wounds does it take to buy a near-fall?

I'd have him get a US Title shot and beat Santino after about a month of refusing to compete. I'd say the "I'm not wrestling because you wouldn't learn anything" would run it's course after about a month and taking Santino's Title would get him some great heat to start his career with. I know Santino is Raw but the brand split is dead anyway.
I agree the idea works better with Santino, especially since he falls into that "dumb" character classification that Sandow is always telling us we need to be saved from, and I'm not advocating heel vs heel. I just used the IC title because honestly, the US title is just such a non factor. It's flat out useless. The IC title at least is part of WWE's title canon. You don't even get the triple crown with the US title, and they refuse to book for it most of the time. I can't even remember the last time there was a US title match on PPV. Plus, it looks like, even with the brand split dead, guys like him and Ryback are going to be SmackDown exclusive for a while.

When WWE was struggling, it's Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart in the main event going 60 minutes, people are leaving during the main event of WrestleMania, you can check the video tape, and Hall and Nash have both told me that Vince said that night, that he would rather have a half full arena cheering for the guy that he says to cheer for, than a full arena cheering for whoever they want.
