TNA Impact: Will Robbie E Winning the Television Title Lead to a Real Champion?

David LevinSenior Writer IINovember 17, 2011

Finally, someone beat Eric Young and claimed the TNA Television Title. However, is the new champion as much of a joke as the former title holder?

When Robbie E—along with Rob Terry—challenged Young for the title, it looked as silly as anything Young had done with his antics and "Hollywood" hob-nobbing.

What's more, it really tainted the title and the importance of having it defended each week on Thursday nights.

Robbie E is nothing more than a cartoon character. He will disgrace the championship.

Does that therefore mean that TNA is going to have a "real" challenger for this title in the near future?

Will Kazarian, The Pope, Crimson, Matt Morgan or even Gunner come out of the locker room and take the title and give it the respect it deserves?

Titles like this have been cherished over the years in the NWA and WCW. Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Dusty Rhodes, Barry Windham and others have all held the title and faced the best of the best. However, I don't see Robbie E and his Jersey Shore stand up as the best that TNA has to offer.

Maybe a title tournament works. Maybe a match to determine a top contender. Something—please!

There are too many good wrestlers in the back, who are in need of a push. To give a push to someone that's "hip" or resembles a reality show character does nothing to help the credibility of the title, TNA or the wrestlers vying for that title.

Make a change!
