I get the logic but there were so many better options for a throw away match. They could have Sami Zayn get close to winning the title and make that part of a long-term story. Luke Harper and Orton have history and Harper can get a good match out of him. If they wanted an absolute left field contender I'd interested in one of American Alpha getting a PPV title shot. They're probably pushing Jinder to the upper midcard. He got the first shot at the title on the new SD. They gave him a ton of publicity with the Gronk angle. He's jacked. He's from an important international market for the WWE so they have an incentive to at least make him a part of the midcard. I like a lot of old school rasslin throwbacks but I'm not enthused with the xenophobia angle* being the center of SD right now. Feels like it plays to the negative stereotype of the uncultured wrestling fan. This is why they get low advertising dollar relative to the shows high cable ratings. *The 97 Hart Foundation was great, nuanced storytelling and an exception to the rule.
