I don't see many other options at this point, it is either Bert or sammy considering abby is suspended. I really don't think babs wants to push bert to be on the top line and re-injure himself, so as much as I hate sammy this is the only move that makes sense, they need a big body on the top line
I agree. I thought it was fairly obvious that this would happen. The only other option that I could think of, really, was Dan Cleary on the top line. Of course, THAT would have caused even more of an uproar here.
