Hardcore title matches were entertaining during the Crash Holly, Blackman, Hardcore Holly, Shane O Mac days and some moments provided comic relief, this can work if they work on the characters and script and give interesting build ups though maybe short like the attack on Crash on laundry, Patterson winning the title or Match changing to War but it shouldn't be like the TNA X-Division sort of thing. Curtis is my choice to become a legend out of the feuds and get over followed by Cannon and a bit of Novak and Kaval. Curtis has the perfect looks of an hardcore champion imo, he will make the title look good if he is packaged and worked on well and given good scripts and out of the box ideas.
Agreed but can WWE rebuild what they once had? Time will only tell.
