There's a serious lack of focus on the World Title this episode, wow.

Need I remind you dirt sheets predicted a massive push for Ryback and the NXT trio being called "The Shield" before the group was announced. That's only two examples of several.
NEVER BELIEVE THOSE LYING DIRTSHEETS, RIGHT?
The only time the dirtsheets really need to be criticized is when they say things like "Triple H is high on Michael McGillicutty", and obvious lie if there ever was one, because it has evidence against it.
Worst reasoning for (not) believing dirt sheets ever. You don't believe dirt sheets when there's no evidence. Is that why you still keep bringing up the petty DERP SHEAMUS WORKS OUT WITH HHH reason for his push? How is that remotely actual evidence? I can publish an article saying Ziggler has started to work out with HHH so that's why he's now getting an actual push. Besides, how is working out with somebody so fucking important it leads to a push? Newsflash, these guys work out with each other all the time on the road. You do believe dirt sheets way too much, because every time there's a rumour about one of your favorite wrestlers, you act like it's real. If it's negative you bash either Vince, HHH or Cena. If it's positive you say the WWE will probably fail at booking anyway and fuck up the push. And the reason Sheamus stopped beating everyone was because he was in contract negotiations? That's a load of crap and you know it.

It's ok for Ryback and Brock Lesnar to be booked more credibly than John Cena within their first year because blood rushes to Vince McMahons dick when he looks at them, but an actual talented performer like Sandow with tons of charisma, great speaking ability, good in ring work, a well defined character? DOWN TO THE MIDCARD, JOBBER, AND STAY THERE.
Yeah, that's a great philosophy.....
You make the LESS talented guys work in the midcard, not the MORE talented guys. What kind of philosophy is the other way around? That's COMPLETELY backwards.
Sandow HAS earned it. He's one of the most entertaining performers in the company. That's what earning it MEANS, being entertaining. And yes, it IS better to get an early push than to, so called, "work" your way up. It doesn't waste time, if you know a guy is gonna be a main eventer, just make him a main eventer. You did it with Sheamus, you did it with Brock, you did it with Ryback, you did it with Del Rio, you did it with other people, so do it in every case where somebody really deserves it.
As far as talking about Eddie and saying look what happened to him, Eddie is a 1 time WWE Champion, that's not good enough for someone the calibur of Sandow. Sandow should be the type of guy who gets multiple world titles. Furthermore, you CAN'T compare the eras they competed in because Eddie's era wasn't depleted beyond belief. He tooks years to win the title because they had OPTIONS back then and they DON'T now. Anyone can main event in 2012. ANY-ONE.
Ah, there's the Sheamus argument again. First of all, Sheamus is a tremendous talent as well. Secondly, he has a unique look. Sandow has a decent look too but he ain't no pale ginger Irishman. Stop always referring to Sheamus' push anyway. Ryback got a big push because he's huge, he's the type of guy that can get over via squashing people and he did so you can't say it didn't work. You wanted Sandow to get that type of push but Sandow for one doesn't look like a beast, and secondly his gimmick doesn't suit an undefeated streak anyway. He's basically The Genius, which was also a great gimmick but exactly that; a gimmick. I honestly don't see Sandow as a World Champ, let alone a multi time champ. He would need to change his character a bit. I do agree he's a great talent though. Also, your "he's one of the most entertaining superstars" argument isn't valid. YOU think he is, but I'm damn sure most fans are just annoyed by him. Hell, I like Sandow and I think after a while his promos get boring and repetitive (not really his fault though).
Why does this edition of Smackdown seem to feature John Cena a little too heavily? Also, the promo by our Intellectual Saviour sounds like gold.
SD ratings have dropped so they've decided to feature Cena again more often on the show.
