Re: World Heavyweight Championship vs WWE Championship
regardless of lineage, names or definitions, the facts are simple. The World title is currently, and has been for years now, the B-show title. It effectively should be named the smackdown title.
It is now on the same level that the intercontinental title was during the attitude era, used as a proving ground for up and comers or to give old timers one final piece of glory and recognition. Frankly, thanks to the John Cena effect, none of the title in WWE actually feel like they mean anything whatsoever anymore, but if we are directly comparing, the WWE title is the be all and end all. Fact.
