Over The Limit 2012 to Include Fatal Fourway Match

The upcoming Over The Limit 2012 matches are continuing to form, as several more were announced this past Monday.  Among them will be a Divas Championship match pitting Beth Phoenix against current champion Layla, and a Fatal Fourway match which will determine the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, currently held by Sheamus.

In the match, Sheamus will defend his championship against three competitors deemed by John Laurinaitis as worthy opponents.  They will be #1 contender Alberto Del Rio, Chris Jericho, and "The Viper" Randy Orton.  All three of these guys layed claim to being the deserving guy to get the title shot, so Laurinaitis decided they were all right.

Technically the decision seems kind of strange, although Orton and Jericho needed something to do at the Pay-Per-View.  Speaking of that, it's looking like maybe Daniel Bryan and Del Rio are switching places on their respective Smackdown and Raw rosters, or that maybe WWE really doesn't care about this so much anymore.  After all, where is the 2012 WWE Draft, featuring matches on Raw to determine which brand gets a draft pick?

This should be an interesting situation, as it could either give Sheamus more credibility as current champion when he is able to defeat three opponents, or give one of the heel winners an easy win.  There were rumors before that WWE planned to give Del Rio a big push and return to championship form upon his return from injury, so don't be surprised if Alberto leaves OTL with the title.
