There are also smaller organizations such as the USBA and NABF in America (and presumably others in other countries) that could be likened to the European/TV title.

In other words, Boxing titles are even more convoluted than the WWE's titles but at least boxing has the excuse of multiple organizations offering championships and a boxer not actually competing for an individual organization. The WWE intentionally convuluted their titles for no apparent reason.

MY IDEA:

Okay, let's say...BROCK LESNAR is the WWE Champion (still) heading into January, and TRIPLE H is the World Champion. KURT ANGLE wins the Royal Rumble, and as a SmackDown guy, is warrented the right as a SmackDown! competitor to a shot at the WWE Championship at WrestleMania. So, he accepts that shot. Then, Angle does a face-turn and turns on (apparantly now) Heel Stephanie. Stephanie, in a fit of pique, trades Angle to the RAW brand for, say, Chris Jericho...or Rob Van Dam. It doesn't matter. Stephanie sez that since Angle's no longer a SmackDown guy, no more title shot. Right? WRONG! Because of a LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACT, Angle STILL gets his title shot. He feuds with Triple H over the trade (and their past stuff), leading to Angle winning the World Championship at No Way Out. THEN, Angle beats Lesnar at WrestleMania, reunifying the titles and giving us a TRUE AMERICAN HERO as UNDISPUTED CHAMPION!

Hell, that's what I wanna see. Then he defends against Benoit and Jericho for months and the REAL FUN begins.

I like your style of thinking Freeway, but your forgot the Angle vs Lesnar rematch, followed by Lesnar going crazy and start snapping people like a twig.

Then when Angle goes heel again, have Lesnar turn face then BOOM, another feud, this one the classic "you've beaten everyone but me" train of thought.

    I was just going to point that out. It's been on my mind since we discussed it a couple of weeks ago.

    I (seriously, no joke) believe Austin will return and win it., going on to win the title at WM19.




But Which Title?!?!?! WHICH TITLE?!!?!?!

I hate to say it but I think we're all getting our hopes up for nothing. I have an ominous feeling the Rumble winner will just "earn" the right to be declared a "free agent" and nothing more. That way at No Way Out they can have 2 title matches and 2 Number One Contender matches and claim they have 4 main events. I really hope I'm wrong as I love the idea of the Angle trade/unification storyline.

Switch the WBC and the WBO and you've got it dead on.
