Default Ryback should go against Cesaro or Barrett for the title at 'Mania

Instead of hovering around irrelevance, he should be the number 1 contender for either Cesaro's title or Barret's title.

Reasons:

1) If you want to push someone, having a midcard title reign is more meaningful than being a monster squashing jobbies. Examples: Austin, Rock, Angle, Edge

2) The mid card title (US or Intercontinental) will be meaningful again, being put down on the line at the grandest stage

3) Assuming the Meatroid wins, Cesaro or Barret can be elevated to the world title scene.

4) Roidberg's eventual title loss could be someone's gain (Ambrose, Rollins, Bray Wyatt, Bo Dallas, etc)

I agree with you. Ryback needs this. If WWE isn't going to go all the way with Ryback's push and give him the WWE Title, then they need to give him one of the midcard belts. Since all Ryback really does is kill jobbers, why not give him a belt and let him continue to dominate as a champion?

They pushed him too fast into the main event scene so him winning any of those titles would feel odd and seen like a step back. But it would be a gold thing since you keep his character relevant. They have to slow burn his rise, so becomes really hot in the near future.

It's just that the current holders Cesaro and Barrett are guys WWE are high of and are trying to build them for the main event. Cesaro could jump to either Intercontinental league or world heavyweight league. I'd have him go for the IC belt before he starts becoming world champion.

Barrett is just doing nothing that would graduate him to the main event, his done nothing to make his reign special and makes a poor IC champion.

Ryback needs a midcard title simply because others like Sheamus and Del Rio failed as main event characters. For them to stay relevant they need to be in the main event, which sucks and if they aren't going for the title they become stale as fuck.

To be fair, at this point Ryback going for the IC or US Title would feel like a step down since those titles are pretty meaningless now. Though it could be worth a shot to try and make the title more relevant again. Something that would help that would be if Ryback won, and then defended the title in a few Raw main events. Obviously it's not going to happen, but it would be a good start.

You know what might be fun? Wade Barrett reminding everyone that he's beaten Ryback clean, and that Ryback used to be one of his odd-jobs guys. As long as he retained the belt. Ryback going over Barrett would be the wrongest thing ever.

Ryback could never with Claudio, either. He isn't a hundredth of the wrestler, talker, or performer Castagnoli is.

At this point, honestly EVERYTHING is a step down for Ryback. Even the World Heavyweight Title would be a step backwards.

WWE tries to present way too many people as "main eventers" and as a result, they all end up floating around doing nothing whenever the world title picture gets held up.

With two world titles and a very crowded main event scene, they don't have many contenders for the midcard belts.

Since WWE doesn't really build up a strong midcard anyway, it wouldn't hurt if Ryback just claimed one of the belts, and continued to be booked as dominantly as he is now.

Ryback needs to be rebuilt after losing all those big matches. They need to either go all the way and give Ryback the WWE Championship, or give Ryback one of the midcard belts and use what notoriety he's built up to give the belt a rub. Anything else wouldn't really do much for him.

Considering Ryback has lost every main event so far and has little to no main event credibility, I fail to see how winning a midcard title could hurt him. He beats Cesaros ass every time they meet anyways, might as well give him the title.
