At least they had an idea. With so many wrestlers on the WWE roster, it can be difficult to figure out something for everyone to do. That can get even harder on a single show, as the time in the ring comes at a premium. WWE does what they can but there is always going to be someone left out. It was true last weekend as well, but there was a specific reason on a couple of occasions.
WWE was on a European tour last weekend with Sheamus as one of the bigger names appearing on the shows. However, Sheamus did not wrestle on two of the four shows, missing both Saturday and Sunday’s events. According to PWInsider.com, this was due to WWE wanting to give Sheamus’ associate Butch more ring time. As a result, Butch wrestled on the shows instead, challenging for the Intercontinental Title on all four shows.
Opinion: At least Sheamus is healthy and that is what matters most. This is something that makes sense, though I’m still not sure how well Butch is going to do as someone who runs away and is basically a crazed maniac. You would think that WWE would want to go with someone like Pete Dunne in his usual character on shows in England but instead we get this. At least Butch was in the ring, which is better than the story of him missing on television as of late.
What do you think of Butch? How should he and Sheamus be presented going forward? Let us know in the comments below.
