I absolutely love the WWE. I have since I was 10 years old.
But I have a huge problem with how they represent—or don't represent—their championship titles.
Of course, as "sports entertainment" the No. 1 priority of the WWE's Superstars and Divas is to be entertaining, and not necessarily to win titles. Some of the greatest and most revered performers in WWE history are certainly lacking in the championship gold department.
However, those who have earned the right to hold titles should not only showcase their accomplishment, but defend it. To have a fighting champion is the only way to establish and maintain the credibility of a championship.
In today's WWE, however, even the coveted WWE Championship seems to be treated as nothing but an accessory. Because of this many of the titles aren't taken seriously, and their long, storied histories are becoming less and less significant by the week.
You would think going into WrestleMania, arguably the biggest and most important event in all of professional wrestling, the WWE would want to build up matches that place importance on all of their titles.
Well unfortunately, that hasn't been the case.
