Re: UGH NOOO!!!
Yeah, I don't believe this. I called EXACTLY what would happen (with the exception that I thought Ziggler would cash in one day before he did, big deal) as SOON as this angle started. Not for one second did I believe Swagger was winning the title. This angle was created to get Del Rio over to the Latino market as a babyface, it wasn't created for Swagger. The way to do it isn't by putting over a racist heel at the biggest show of the year and exposing Del Rio as a failure who let his people down, it's to be the conquering hero, claim America as the land of equal opportunity, and promptly drop the angle to work with Ziggler.
The angle failed, for several reasons, but this was the logical way to go from day one. Not to mention, even Swagger wouldn't be dumb enough to tempt fate and drive high if he had a title reign at stake. His career wasn't going to change because of this angle.
