In my opinion, the WWE doesn't defend their titles as often as I believe they should be defending them. Too often you'll see the current title holder walking around with his or her championship week after week and no challengers coming forth. This isn't about who should be the title holder of this title or that title. All I'm asking is do you believe that all of the championships are being defended as often as they should.
I understand that none of these titles are a TV title where you're supposed to defend it every week. However, I would be more excited to watch Raw and see two or three title defenses every other week. No, I'm not saying I would rather see titles changing hand every week. What I'm saying is that you're defending it more often than not. Either you retain it or you lose it and your storyline will dictate the outcome. So I understand the importance of establishing the story-lines every week. But you can't have PPVs where titles got omitted from the card. You make the room... I don't care if it's a pre-show match. Because what this implies to me is that certain titles aren't important enough. I mean, when did it get to that point. Every title should be important. But it has long since gotten to the point where wrestlers don't need a title to get over. I think there in lies the problem and one reason why there needs to be fewer titles in WWE. However, the topic isn't about fewer titles and PPVs because we'll be here all day.
For me, I don't want to think about the WWE title because we all know who's apt to hold it or win it back sooner than later.
I want the World Heavyweight title to simply go away.
I think that the Intercontinental and the US titles are relevant or can be relevant. See, I wouldn't mind these two titles acting like a TV title.
I never was a fan of the Diva's title. It's trite. But, what are you going to do? They aren't bringing back the traditional Women's title like the old Intercontinental title. But if they elect to retire or merge certain titles, why won't they do so with the World Heavyweight title? I mean, the brand extension's over.
As for the tag team titles, what more can I say about them that hasn't already been written about them. They're ugly as hell. Jokes aside, is it me, or did The Shield become stagnant once they'd won the US and tag team titles? What I would've done was to have them win the tag team titles and not the US title and apply the "Freebird Rule." I don't know. Actually, they and Curtis Axel are who prompted me to think about this as a topic.
Ironically, I'm now interested the WWE title picture.
