  • How come the World Heavyweight championship doesn't main event PPVs?

    Every PPV we have witnessed recently has given the WWE Championship match the main event status. Under it the World Heavyweight Championship seems to be making less sound than it used to before.

    Whats your view on this?

    Because it's the IC belt.

      As of late the title that is not on Raw is the secondary title, fair or not. The champions of Raw have more visibility and it wouldn't make much sense for the Smackdown world champion to be featured as prominently or more prominently than the WWE champion on Raw so the more emphasized champion to the bigger audience will always close the show (when John Cena doesn't ).

        because since the brand split is basically over the belts are basically classified has such:

        -WWE champion
        -WHW champion


        -IC champion




        -US champion









        -tag champions


















        -divas champion

          Yea
          The WH title is now more like a mid card title (unfortunately), the WWE title is definitely more important and it's absolutely normal for the WH title to be behind the WWE title, but that doesn't mean they make it the opening match at WM....

          I want the WH title to return to its status back in 2002-2005 when i was perhaps more important than the WWE title, but that's difficult now as it's mainly used to push young superstars....

            As I've said in other threads the WHC has been majorly devalued in recent years and is more like the IC title of the 90s now, a lot more PPV buys are generated from the WWE title match rather than the WHC, I say it's time for a unification match and just go with using the WWE title as the main title.

              If you don't care about the WHC title, why does it matter if it is Unified with the WWE title?

                Because Vince has to prove to the world that the WWE title is more important than the WCW title and will keep it that way until he dies, gets frozen, then reanimates to steal back the company and destroy it, then dies again.

                  Before both belts got to main even the PPV's they were assigned to, like Smackdown PPV's would have the WWE title main event and RAW PPV's would have the WH title main event, whenever the belt got switched over to either show that belt would main event...RAW has got the top guys at the moment...if Cena and Punk were on SD! fighting over the WH belt then it would be main eventing

                      Yep.

                      They've reduced it to a modern day 1980s IC Championship. The actual IC Championship is now more of a more of a modern day European Championship.

                      It's lame, and it was a better when the belts were more equal and could essentially alternate PPVs if they wanted, but I still prefer this over the idea of them being unified. Because there's still one championship that means more than all the others either way.

                              So, The Rock is still The John Cena?

                              And you don't want him to get it back, Champ?
