Re: World Heavyweight Championship vs WWE Championship
Just to be clear, I DO consider the WWE Championship to be a "World" Championship but just not THE World Championship. Basically I sum the WWE up like this with it's singles titles as it pertains to importance.....
World Heavyweight Championship - The holder of this belt is the champion of the entire sport of Pro Wrestling, covering all continents, countries, promotions, and is the #1 competitor in the world. By holding the WHC the wrestler is not restricted to being just the best in the company, but represents the sports as it's grand champion.
WWE Championship - The holder of this belt is the champion of the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) and is the top wrestler in the company. Since the WWE is the biggest wrestling company in the world the title holder may be considered a "World Champion".
WWE Intercontinental Championship - The holder of this title is the champion of the inter-continental area, including Canada, the U.S, Brazil, Africa, Europe, and other surrounding countries, and represents the WWE as the champion of such areas. This belt is NOT a "World Championship" and should be considered a "regional" championship meant for growth for it's holder.
WWE United States Championship = The holder of the title is the champion of the United States and represents the company as it's homeland champion. This is a "national/regional" championship and should be considered a "growth" title for a competitor.
