Re: Exclusive: Why WWE Made ADR Champion, Issues With Big Show's Contract
If this is true, what Big Show did was actually genius. Yes, he lost a title that no one cares about and WWE treats horribly in booking. However, he also probably got a much better deal than what he was originally offered. He's over 40 now and well into the veteran stage and because of it, it's easy to give him a terrible contract unless Big Show threatens to abandon WWE and take himself elsewhere.
Mark Henry is reportedly facing a similar problem as he's threatening retirement since they are trying to lowball him in his new contract. The difference here is that I think Mark Henry will walk and WWE will let him go. They don't have the same loyalty towards him as they do Big Show.
Del Rio as a focus is going to further push Smackdown into irrelevancy. The crowd doesn't care about him and he's not capable of leading a brand or being the main focus.
