Cheap Pop & Cheap Heat of the Week in Wrestling: 8/20/2015

Posted by Ben Guest Thursday, August 20, 2015
Welcome to another edition of Cheap Pop and Cheap Heat from Smark Out Moment! Each week, we break down the world of professional wrestling and examine two of the polar opposite ends of the spectrum: one thing that was by far the worst thing (Cheap Heat) and the best thing (Cheap Pop) to happen over the past 7 days in sports entertainment. So, what went down this week that we loved and hated about the business?

CHEAP POP OF THE WEEK:
GIVE SUPERSTARS A CHANCE

Cesaro and Kevin Owens had both been lost in the flow of WWE for a little while—Cesaro longer than Owens—but now that they have a match together at SummerSlam, it may be a sign that they are both about to get the pushes they deserve.

Cesaro went from being a Paul Heyman guy to nothing and then built himself up on the tag team roster, only to have his partner Tyson Kidd get a long term injury. Kevin Owens looked like he was going to take the United States Championship off John Cena in his first feud on the main roster, but since losing, he hasn't looked like much is happening for him.

Cesaro has seemed to be getting a bigger push with great matches against John Cena and Seth Rollins, making him look like a very strong contender for one of the titles in the near future. Kevin Owens, on the other hand, hasn't, but has continued to build himself up as a great heel by continuing to disrupt matches and get in the way of people's opportunities.

These two have been put in a match against each other at SummerSlam and although WWE needs to make the loser of the match look strong, the two are capable of putting on a great show. Assuming the match isn't cut to the pre-show and that they're given enough time to give us a strong match, we could be looking at a match to steal the show and two superstars about to throw themselves into contention for one of the titles.

CHEAP HEAT OF THE WEEK:
HERE WE GO AGAIN

Randy Orton and Sheamus have been feuding for several months now, and at SummerSlam we will see yet another match between the two. However, these two had a match at Battleground and both participated in the Money in the Bank ladder match, as well as numerous matches on both Raw and SmackDown, making another match seem pointless.

Orton and Sheamus have always put on great matches and they work very well together, but there are only so many times you can see two people have a match with no stipulation and no consequences for either winner or loser.

Another problem with this feud is that there has been no build up, or even a reason for these two to have had a match. If there is, then it's been lost over the multiple matches they've had. They just seem to dislike each other, which is fine for one pay-per-view match, but for a 3 month feud? Come on, WWE.

Hopefully, SummerSlam will see the end of this feud. I hope they add a stipulation to at least add something new. Perhaps we'll see the Money in the Bank briefcase on the line, but even a simple no DQ match could make this better. Whatever happens, these two deserve better than a pointless feud with no end result.
