I don't particularly understand the hate for his current position, he's been a key part in reviving the tag team division and at this point the longer he stays here the more over he gets. My prediction is they disband him from Hell No in the post-Wrestlemania period, and it's only upwards from there for him.
The first part also applies to Santino if we're going by that logic. He was massively over at one point and has a strong conection with the audience. Being popular as a midcard act (essentially what the WHC is) doesn't neccesserily always translate to the main event and it certainly doesn't make you "the best".
Revived the tag team division, honestly? HHH pushing the division made it relevant (not that it really is) while Bryan and Kane's comedy act completely overshadows the tag titles.
