Why did WWE...
Debut Sheamus' new submission finisher (Texas Cloverleaf) before Night of Champions. Am I the only one that thinks it would have been great to see Sheamus make Del Rio tap out with an unexpected submission hold?
Prior to Night of Champions WWE should have had Sheamus struggling to win matches and becoming agitated that he is unable to use the Brogue Kick. Sheamus could still win most of his matches but would struggle in doing so; this 1) makes Sheamus seem weak heading into Night of Champions 2) Makes Del Rio the favourite then the week before the PPV Sheamus could participate in a tag team match with say Randy Orton against Dolph Ziggler and Alberto Del Rio and lose cleanly to Del Rio (yes, yes, I know...) by Shining Wizard, obviously WWE wouldn't want the face of SmackDown tapping out.
