Now that the 24/7 rule is gone does anyone think that the Hardcore title can rebound? Has the 24/7 rule tainted the title too much? What else can be done to have the title mean something?

A-fucking-MEN. That whole match, I was begging Bradshaw to just not come out with the title, and looky who's the champ. Dreamer. If there's a chance for the title to mean something, that's a start. Now take that damn label off, and there's step two.

I think it can definitely rebound. The Fed -finally- has pulled the plug on 24/7. About a year too late, but wrestling feds are always a bit behind when it comes to shutting down something successful (see: nWo). Hell, it already is rebounding. Tommy Dreamer's matches have been singularly entertaining over the last few weeks. Less comedy, more violence. No more kayaks as weapons, more steel chairs and kendo sticks.

I admit it ... I would have marked out if, during that brief time Crash was champion, he immediately lit out for the nearest horizon, running as fast as those short little legs would carry him. Just for nostalgic purposes.

Dreamer is the right title-holder for the division, yes, but I still have to question whether anyone, even Dreamer, can kill himself on a several-nights-a-week basis. Maybe they've got a way to work it better -- but maybe they'll just go back to tinfoil garbage cans and precut brooms. No way to tell.

Oh my God!

I saw the belt! And it's the old cracked and broken belt!

The Texas Title is DEAD! WOO-HOO!

After lots of thinking I finally came to a theory: Any non-wrestler who gets attacked by the Island Boyz will immediately recieve praise from the Wienerville community.
There's no other way to explain it.

The Hardcore Title would do a lot better if they just had more ECW style matches. Not every match has to have insane amounts of plunder in the ring. The Singapore Cane vs the Chair was a good match and the straight up Singapore Cane match was even better. RVD's Hardcore reign was a nice change, because he worked his style into it. The Hardcore Division doesn't have to end up in zany backstage areas everynight. They're headed in the right direction at least. It could be a real useful division for a lot of guys doing nothing right now.

By the way where the hell was Justin Credible in that match?

And wasn't the Big Show a hardcore champ? And couldn't that match have been on Heat?

That match. On Heat. Or Jakked. Oh, wait...

If they really want to get the 'new' Hardcore division over, then it's going to require Tommy Dreamer bleeding until he's bone dry, barb-wire death matches, and a time travel trip back to 1998.

The match sucked, too much Cowboy Bradshaw. My eyes, my eyes, lord save my eyes. Uhhhhh. Why did they let that huge bag o'shit get so much offense in on Richards? No one should job to that f*ck. I'm happy that 24/7 is dead! Jeff broke into a Harry Potter act by flying with a broom. Crash relived past glory. At least Dreamer won, not Bradshaw.

In all seriousness, the main problem that people had with the WWF/E in 2001-2 was, to put it simply, inflated expectations. If WCW in the mid-to-late-'90s wasn't an indication, WWE over the past two years has been:
