SmackDown Five-Point Preview: June 29, 2012
Can The Celtic Warrior crack the numbers game?
The No. 1 Contender’s Contract-on-a-Pole Match descended into chaos on Raw SuperShow Monday, creating confusion about whether Dolph Ziggler or Alberto Del Rio would challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship on SmackDown. Thankfully, Sheamus cleared up the uncertainty by announcing that both Superstars would concurrently face him with the championship gold on the line in a Triple Threat Match.
The Great White seemingly relished the opportunity to defend his coveted title against both The Showoff and The Mexican Aristocrat, but the odds remain stacked against him given the bout’s format. He survived challenges from multiple opponents at Elimination Chamber and WWE Over the Limit, but – with only a 33 percent chance of victory and because he doesn’t need to be directly defeated to lose the championship gold – his luck could very well run out against the two worthy adversaries he’ll face on SmackDown.
