Did ADR seriously lose cleanly?

Discussion in 'RAW' started by Crayo, Jul 30, 2013.

  1. To Christian? A guy who always loses? I'm no ADR mark and I'm one that doesn't think he should be champion at all right now, but if you're going to have him as your champion, why make him lose to Christian? I skipped through some of the match so I'm unsure if it was completely clean, but wtf was with that?
     
  2. After Smackdown this week it will make sense.
     
  3. Everything happens for a reason mark. Watch SD, know your role and shut your mouth
     
  4. I presume Christian is going to have a feud with ADR. Even so, I think losing cleanly to him on RAW was a mistake.
     
  5. Well the dude does not always lose. Seriously, wait for SD!.
     
  6. WWE seem to think that the only way to set up a WHC fued these days is to have the champ lose to the challenger. It's stupid, because after giving away the match on TV you care less about it, and it makes the championship feel less prestigious. I never understand why they don't have more number 1 contender matches/tournaments to determine the challenger - it keeps the champion protected and it makes matches that are normally pointless actually mean something.

  7. I'm a Christian fan, so I'm fine with the victory. I understand what you mean, but tune into SmackDown this week and it'll make sense.
     
  8. WHATEVER HAPPENED ON SD DOESN'T CHANGE THE FACT THAT THE CHAMP DOESN'T HAVE TO LOSE TO SETUP TITLE MATCHES ARGGHHH

  9. From my understanding it was a rollup so it didn't make ADR look weak.
     
  10. He jobbed to Orton like two weeks ago cleanly. Nothing out of the ordinary.
     
  11. This. They could've let Del Rio win and have whatever happen on Smackdown still happen.

  12. While that was also wrong, Orton is a credible superstar, MITB holder, and is scheduled for a ME push on RAW. Christian loses to every single wrestler he competes against. Why does the champion need to lose to set up a feud?
     
  13. They should have more battle royals to set up no 1 contenders. We used to see that a lot.
     
  14. Not that I am arguing for WHC losing, I am against it and hate even when champs have non-title matches, but Christian has actually been winning since returning this time.
     
  15. He won his return match, a pin against Ambrose in that triple-threat match, then lost a BUNCH of times. Who else has he had decent wins against?
     
  16. I can't recall off hand, only that he has been winning. Where did all of these losses come in? I must have missed them.

  18. WOOOOOOOOH SPOILER ALERT
     
  19. What spoiler?

    Anyway, I didn't even notice those. Most are against jobbers, but I guess they've been "building him up" as of late. Was that #1 contender match last SmackDown? I skip through SO much of it. If he's already the #1 contender, that makes me even more mad that he beat ADR last night.

    I know for a fact he had a long run of losing, but that was near his MITB match.
     
  20. Didn't he lose to Kane a week or two ago?
