WWE.com: Will The Showoff’s Hell in a Cell guarantee pay off?


Originally Posted by wwe.com

A victory in WWE Hell in a Cell’s scheduled World Heavyweight Title Match does not necessarily assure that Sheamus or No. 1 contender Big Show will leave Atlanta’s Philips Arena with the championship gold.

Casting a long shadow over the much-anticipated clash between super heavyweights is “Mr. Money in the Bank” Dolph Ziggler’s vow to have the World Heavyweight Championship in his possession at the end of the Oct. 28 pay-per-view.

“When the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view comes to a close, I guarantee I will be the World Heavyweight Champion,” the spotlight-stealing Ziggler told The Celtic Warrior while interrupting Sheamus’ guest spot on “Miz TV” two weeks ago on SmackDown.

But, can The Showoff make good on his promise, and what does his very public declaration mean for the way Sheamus and Big Show prepare for their match at WWE Hell in a Cell?

Though Ziggler directed his comment toward The Great White, asserting that he’d take advantage of whatever battle damage Sheamus may accumulate in his showdown with The World’s Largest Athlete, the boisterous blond’s comments should hold plenty of interest to both competitors — not just The Celtic Warrior.

After all, Big Show already knows the pitfalls of winning a World Title while an unredeemed Money in the Bank contract remains in a challenger’s possession. Just last December, Big Show lost the World Heavyweight Title 45 seconds after winning it from Mark Henry at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs. The giant was so exhausted by the fight with The World’s Strongest Man that he posed little challenge to Daniel Bryan, who carefully chose his spot when cashing in his Money in the Bank contract.

Some observers have questioned the soundness of Ziggler and Vickie Guerrero’s actual strategy for cashing in his contract, but there is no denying that The Showoff’s timing in issuing his “guarantee” is impeccable.

For one, the tone of Sheamus’ rivalry with Big Show has recently taken a grave shift. The Celtic Warrior — perhaps shaken by his blocked Brogue Kick Monday or the empirical evidence Friday that his Brogue Kick generates less force than his challenger’s KO Punch — appears to be making fewer jokes. While he sharpens his focus on his giant foe, Sheamus risks losing sight of The Showoff, much to Ziggler’s potential benefit.

Alternatively, Ziggler’s threat might be part of a calculated game plan to remove the title from Sheamus’ waist. After having his jaw crushed repeatedly by the Brogue Kick, perhaps The Showoff would prefer to try his luck against another champion, even a giant-sized one. Could Mr. Money in the Bank be using his guaranteed contract as a means to distract Sheamus in the weeks leading up to his encounter with Big Show?

Yet another possibility is that Ziggler’s guarantee is simply a red herring and he has no intention of making a major move Oct. 28. Just because The Showoff said he will cash in his contract at WWE Hell in a Cell does not mean he necessarily will cash in the contract. (Bryan pulled a similar ruse last year, first promising to cash in his contract at WrestleMania, only to pull the trigger at WWE TLC.) Despite his guarantee to take the title Oct. 28, might Ziggler choose to survey the situation in Atlanta before taking any drastic measures?

Regardless, one thing is for certain: WWE Hell in a Cell holds no certainty for Sheamus or Big Show, whereas for Ziggler, it holds nothing but opportunity.

This story is strongly teasing a cash-in from Ziggler but I don't see it happening at Hell In A Cell. Maybe I should say happen successfully for Dolph whose multiple past attempts have ended with a Brogue Kick to the mouth. I can imagine Dolph getting the sneaky victory when we "least expect it" to go down.

didnt D-Bry make the same guarantee about his MITB? I honestly dont see Ziggler cashing in.

If they are hyping it this much, it's because it's definitely not happening. That's how it usually goes.

It will happen soon either way IMO.

I honestly think it will be just as simple as Big show losing to Sheamus, knocking out Sheamus, Ziggler Cashing in.

then we might get a triple threat next PPV, or it will be Sheamus and Siggler for a little while until RR when they'll give Sheamus his WM opponent feud (I'm guessing Ryback, to put Sheamus over the streak sadly).

As much as I love Ziggler, dude isnt ready for a world title run...still unable to stand on his own two feet when it comes to mic work, and being booked completely horribly is what's really holding him back.

If WWE put the belt on him now, it'll be for a joke reign, and they cant afford to do that.

This is what I wish for to happen:

Sheamus lands a Brogue Kick that doesn't even manage to put Big Show down at that point,instead Big Show falls back into the ropes and comes back with the WMD, dropping onto Sheamus for the victory.

Ziggler suddenly runs down while the Cell is being raised, quickly slides in, hits Big Show with the briefcase for the victory.

This moment would not so much be about Ziggler but the fact once more Big Show loses the world title in under a minute.

He's made a guarantee alright. He vows to job again.

The way they book Ziggler and his MITB lunchbox is pretty much some kind of horrible parody of a good MITB cash-in. He attempts to cash in all the time, takes away any surprise of it, and then will fiercely job out afterwards.

Best case scenario is that Ziggler cashes in and wins through about 3 dirty tactics and still eats a Brogue Kick afterwards. But that won't happen.

Ziggler has zero buildup right now. He shouldn't win the title anytime soon. Give him some victories against big names. And stop jobbing the guy out every week ffs. Why do they do this to every MITB winner?, it's just dumb.
