Can't see that as complaining as merely pointing out something I find to be less than favorable from a product I really enjoy watching. If I wanted to bitch and moan, I would. It'd be obnoxious and lame so lets all be glad I'm not lacking the brain cells to do such a thing.
Well the observation stands. That much was obvious. Company obviously felt he was the guy to win it and so it happened. I'll have to live with it, but I'll have it in the back of my head questioning why he was brought up so soon following the win (since that is why Rollins dropped it in the first place) & why he didn't debut as a face considering that's what he's being built up as on NXT. I said the same thing about Rollins being a heel too. Only I've come to grips with that fast since it has had a pay off that I've enjoyed.
I completely agree on the second paragraph. I'm pretty puzzled they called him up when and how they did. Also, since Ryback is around, it seemed like they could have waited until he loses more steam so there would be more room for a dominant big man. The only redeeming reason they might have for doing it the way they did is if it somehow falls into a 'bigger picture'. I'm always skeptical of long term booking when it comes to WWE though lol.
