Best/Worst: America Still Needs Your Help!
Don’t get me wrong, the “worst” modifier here isn’t necessarily for R-Truth becoming United States Champion. The guy’s done great work lately and looks better than most 20-year olds despite being almost 50, and he’s been around long enough that yeah, okay, giving him a secondary championship run and having some fun heading into WrestleMania’s not a bad idea. Especially when the United States Championship barely even feels like a title someone has or defends. It’s like someone getting a new pair of trunks or something.
