Could this be the big announcement that John Laurantis never got to reveal at the end of RAW?

Yeahhhh man. The last 3 hour RAW I was really wishing it should end around 10:15 - 10:20. I felt like I was being forced to watch too much of a mediocre show.

The fact is there's endless potential in a 3 hour show, but WWE Creative is not nearly creative enough (pun intended!) to use it properly.



Being Champion of The World is great, but it doesn't quite beat being Champion of the Universe.

Oh, you supersmarks will look for any little thread to grab onto. There's no logic behind this statement at all- if there was *any* reason to get unified champ it would be Mr. Excitement being GM of both brands and/or Brock getting both titles. 3 hr Raw just doesn't compute- it would be reason to keep more titles so you can use more title matches to kill time.

It just doesn't make sense anymore. All the titles are unified expect the heavyweight. There is no longer a need to have a Smackdown title. They are also stating its going to be "interactive" with the fans making the matches. Eventually, the fans will make that match. If it is going to be a legit interaction which I doubt. But, it would add some legitimacy if that was one of the first matches made.

There won't be longer matches or new talent. All we will get is more Cena, more Laurinatis and more Triple H.

And the US title. And the intercontinental title. So actually the majority of the titles aren't unified at all.

Divas and tag titles are unified though.

Well, the IC title is still unified with the Euro and Hardcore titles. I am not sure if the US title absorbed any other belts over the years. (I wish it had absorbed the TV title, rather than the latter title just disappearing.)

I wouldn't want to see the IC and US titles reunified. However, it would be good if they established a clear pecking order of which is the secondary belt, and which is the tertiary belt.

I don't think they need to unify the IC and US title belts. I've always thought that once the World Titles were unified, if they still had two shows, one could be an exclusive RAW title and the other could be an exclusive SmackDown title with One World Title to rule them all.

Even if they got rid of the brand split entirely, two secondary titles isn't the end of the world. WCW did a great job with having a US title and TV title for years back in the 80s/90s, but yeah, the US title was clearly the more prestigious title (because it automatically came with a #1 contenders clause), and the TV title had a 15-minute time limit unique to its championship.

A better idea might be unifying the US with the IC titles and reinstating a Cruiserweight belt of some sort for a third title. That way, the United States could rejoin North America with all the continents represented by the belt, and Sin Cara could have a belt on the undercard.

Still, The US and IC titles aren't really a problem even right now and gave guys like Dolph, Cody Rhodes, The Miz, etc. all something to compete for over the years and helped their elevation.

I'm sure it will be legit interaction.

The problem is, legit interaction means they give you three options and whatever one you make trend is the one they go with.

It doesn't necessarily mean that you get to book the show for Creative.

Also, it doesn't really matter if people hold titles or not. Ziggler and Swagger are former World's Champions, but no one cares. The belts mean pretty much nothing with the exception of the WWE Title, which just means that you get to "main event" the PPVS by being the 3rd last match on the card.
