Does anyone remember JBLs AWFUL year long WWE Champion run? not really... because this is Pro Wrestling and its predetermined.
its not about how long the reign is! its about the entertainment value it brings!
Wrestling would be a lot different without championships I'll have you know. Championships bring a sense of accomplishment to the business. To hold the world title in particular, is an honor. Who cares about title reigns? Well who cares about wins and losses in wrestling if it's all fake. Yet you see everyday, people on here bitching about this wrestler getting buried or that wrestler always jobbing. If wrestling is all pre determined, then why should it matter who wins a match or not, just as long as they put on a good show. Yet people still get pissed off. At the end of the day, wrestling fans get emotionally invested in wrestling. When that happens, they start to care about little thing like the titles. Of course that's my theory on it. But there's not point in pointing out that wrestling is pre determined, if you can watch a wrestling match, and care what's doing on in it, even if it's pre determined then you can care about titles as well.
P.S I think you'll find, a lot of people still do remember JBL's title reign. It's actually underrated by fans on here, but the WWE championship was booked a hell of a lot better back then, then it is now.
