i really wish wwe would re introduce this belt. vince will probably never approve it because hes so hell bent on erasing anything that had to do with WCW. thoughts? comments? snide remarks?
It only worked at first because they had a mega roster at the time since they got a load of talent in from dead WCW and ECW. I think when people say they want the roster split again really just want something, anything different. It would be a shit idea though.
They should bring it back as the part-timers belt. When Bork had the WWE title, it felt really special to see it defended because it was rare to even see it.
They have, it's called NXT. And this time it's not Raw Jr., it has it's own style, own unique roster and is completely detached. Smackdown did start out that way until they realised people liked it more than Raw (around the time Heyman was booking) so they tried sabotaging their own brand to make it always seem second to their "flagship" show.
It was essentially a fail-safe "please care about this feud" button.
Considering they have a very hard time making people care about feuds, an even harder time building the stars for fans to care about and they couple all of that with an inability to book people just below the Top-Title scene, leaving a huge, obvious hole between the WWEWHC and the mid-card that the WHC could fill?
Yeah they could use it back.
Ambrose, Bray, Reigns, Cesaro, all guys who could have very much benefited from it still being around.
The roster is bigger than it appears, but because of shit booking everyone's either jobbed out or under utilized; two problems a brand split would fix.
For a PG Rating, they've had some great shit with weapons for the last couple of years

what if the brand split did happen, with NXT's stars going to smackdown, the Big gold belt returning and Haitch still having creative control.
>Nakamura goes to smackdown and works with the likes of Balor, Joe and Corbin
>kept from looking like shit because he can be world champion and not ruin Vince's fantasy booking for Reigns
