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.

Re: Why did WWE...

Umm...To finally end the feud with a dominate victory over Del Rio without any bullshit this time? They just banned the kick recently anyway, so it wouldn't make sense in a way.

Re: Why did WWE...

Well debuting a submission hold nobody has ever seen him to before before would completely ruin the momentum of the match because not many people would expect it to end. At least now Sheamus has a way other than the Brogue Kick to win the match. He also has that Irish Cross that he uses from time to time. But he used it to put over the move as a finisher.

Sheamus used the Cloverleaf before when he was in the midcard last year. He's probably using it more often to add another move to his arsenal, like the White Noise, and since the Brogue Kick is banned.

Re: Why did WWE...

Sheamus should just use a Bicycle Knee instead of a Bicycle Kick. Then he can be like "Oi din't use ta Brouge Kick fella".
