I thought Benoit was given the belt as a way to keep him in the company.

It was. It obviously didn't work. As for it not counting, the WWF/E constantly says he's a former WCW World Champion - and since they do own (what's left of) WCW now - I guess it does count.

Honestly, with the way I feel about 'unofficial' title reigns and what-not, I think that ANY title change that was witnessed by an audience in a sanctioned event ought to count. When an organization muddles up their titles' lineages, it just comes off badly, and brings into question credibility for credibility's sake, ESPECIALLY when kayfabe is on the line. For goodness' sake, look at WCW's track record, for example, and I can name just a couple of instances--

March 1996, when Lex Luger and Johnny B. Badd (Marc Mero) had the phantom TV title switches. The TV Title, changing hands, NOT ON TELEVISION? What the heck?

Or how about Sting, losing the United States Heavyweight Title (keep that in mind) to Kensuke Sasaki-- IN JAPAN. Wha--?! The US Title, changing hands, OUTSIDE of the United States?! What the heck? (again!)

Things like that, to me, are indicative of a wrestling promotion that doesn't know their head from their ass. If I'm WWE, I'd fill in the blanks as to EVERY title lineage, even the defunct belts. As far as the IC Title carrying on the lineage of so many other titles, why doesn't the EEEEEEE go ahead and acknowledge that fact?

For the fans' sake, think about it WWE... context helps to create the reality.

Truth be told, if I were to be offended about anything regarding this angle, it would be the religious aspect. And even that is more the fact that the WWF has this problem with portraying Christians positively.
