Either way, I don't think it's as much about how they build a guy before the cash in that matters. It's what happens after. If they book a guy like a joke with the belt (Mysterio/Swagger/Miz) people won't buy him as champion.
Fair point, but if he's not getting a reaction when he gets the belt, I feel like it wouldn't matter how he's booked after that. If winning the title (especially in a surprise fashion) doesn't get a big reaction, I doubt ADR could do much after that to get a reaction...
And I really hope you're wrong about D-Bry (no offense), but it wouldn't surprise me at all to see him drop the case or be the first to lose. Kinda surprised they let him win it in the first place...
