The Christmas edition of SD! was taped last night to give the roster the night off, and in the main event Rusev beat Shinsuke Nakamura for the U.S. title.  Again, a little tone deaf.  Rusev was as organically over as anyone without a push I had ever seen around WM time last year as I was walking down Bourbin Street and spontaneous chants of "Rusev Day" would break out and last for 5 minutes.  It was really something to see.  But that was a year ago and lack of push has tempered how over he is, and now he's just a champion with no real build either.  And why is Nakamura the victim here?  In Vince's world, WWE's problems are Bryan and Nakamura?  lol 

Also, this title change is buried on a taped Christmas show that will surely have brutally low ratings, possibly the lowest in SD! history.  So there's the fact that no one will ever see it, too.
