Belt or Bury: Kalisto - WWE World Heavyweight Championship or Fired?

Posted by Anthony Mango Wednesday, January 13, 2016
Welcome to the seventh installment of BELT OR BURY, wherein you must choose between two different options for a particular wrestler in question: a) should they be given a push to a higher spot on the card and a championship or b) should they be jobbed out or possibly even released? Factoring in that wrestler's past as well as their potential future, do they have anything left to offer but aren't being utilized well enough, or should they step out of the limelight and be pushed aside in favor of others?

Belt or Bury Kalisto wins WWE Championship

KALISTO

HISTORY & CURRENT STATUS: The inspiration for Kalisto being the latest featured person on this segment is the current situation with the United States Championship. Kalisto defeated Alberto Del Rio to win the title on Monday Night Raw, but dropped it back to him the next night on the SmackDown tapings. In one shot, he went from a guy who appeared to be getting a big push out of nowhere to someone who was not even a transitional champion.

BELT OR BURY = BELT. Kalisto is definitely not ready for a world title reign, but that doesn't mean he shouldn't be trusted with a midcard title. I was actually quite interested in his potential as the United States champion and I felt as though while it was a bit out of nowhere and he hasn't had singles feuds to show that he can carry programs, it's something different and it may be the right "sink or swim" scenario he needs to break out. Kalisto works well with Sin Cara in The Lucha Dragons, but his future needs to be as a singles guy and potentially the next Rey Mysterio of sorts. To do that, he has to be a singles competitor, and he could be a great mainstay in the midcard for years to come. I would trust him with a belt right now or soon, and if he gets buried after this random one day title reign, that would do nothing but harm to his career, and for what? Give this guy a belt, for sure.
