The Singles Champions: CM Punk, Sheamus, Santino Marella

Hey everyone. As usual, thanks for reading and comments are welcome. These are just the thoughts I've been having on the title picture in WWE. I'm not going to go into the Diva's or Tag Team Championships. Maybe I would if these girls could actually wrestle and it was the Women's Championship. And as for the Tag Team Titles... let's just not talk about it.
And this isn't a super-serious "In my professional opinion..." blog. I'm just sharing my thoughts and I haven't even planned this blog out. I'm just writing as it pops into my head.
WWE Champion - CM Punk
Punk is definitely a good champion. He always performs well in the ring and on the mic, as we all know. The main thing I like about Punk as our current WWE Champion is the long title reign. He's successfully defended it in a TLC match, the Elimination Chamber match, and at 'Mania to name just a few. What I'm really trying to say is that it's going to be a big fucking deal when he finally loses. The only downside to Punk being champ is that his character has gotten pretty stale, as I mentioned in an earlier blog. He's really not that interesting anymore, which is unfortunate because he has all the talent in the world. I don't really know what to do about it, perhaps a heel turn because Punk is a great heel. In a perfect world, Bryan will win tonight. YES! YES! YES!
World Heavyweight Champion - Sheamus
Sheamus is making the best of what creative is giving him. Since he's so over I feel like he's marketed towards the younger audience, which I can't blame WWE for, it's a good move for business. I mean, the guy went from "The Celtic Warrior" to... "The Great White." Awesome. Anyway I like him as the World Champ, but his character isn't all too interesting. Like the writers aren't really giving me a reason to CARE about Sheamus, but most of us at least like him. It was nice for him to finally win the title after just sort of floating around Smackdown beating everyone in matches. (Of course I wish we had gotten an actual MATCH at Wrestlemania). I honestly expect him to retain at Over the Limit, even though the WWE is so high on Del Rio for some fucking reason.
United States Champion - Santino Marella
*sigh* ...This wasn't so bad at first. But now it's gotten old. I mean I like Santino, I like his comical character. But it's gone so far that I don't buy him as a champion. He's always getting bailed out in matches, except for his Youtube match against The Miz that nobody even watched. I honestly don't know EXACTLY how to put what I'm trying to say into words, but most of you probably feel the same way and can kind of get what I'm trying to get across. Just sort of a "Meh..." feeling. I think Ziggler needs to ditch Vickie and Swagger and win this belt back clean on his own, and have a nice long title run with it. Or they should put it on David Otunga. (Yes, I actually like him. His whole coffee and constant-flexing thing makes me laugh).
Intercontinental Champion - Cody Rhodes
Rhodes deserves this title. He brought some prestige back to this belt, winning it from "Big Zeke" and defending it a good few times. He's good in the ring and is one of the guys who will be around for a long time. He brought back the nifty white-strap belt too. I don't even know why they made him lose the belt at 'Mania just to win it right back, I guess it was just to give Big Show his "Wrestlemania moment." Put Cody in a fued with a guy his size and he'll put on great matches. I don't really know exactly who should challenge him for it, maybe somebody new like Damien Sandow now that he actually does stuff.
