Re: World Heavyweight Championship vs WWE Championship

Sorry but the WWE Championship is the same title as the WWWF Title.

The WWE could have called the WWE Championship the WWF Champion per the legal agreement they signed in the mid 1990's with the World Wildlife Federation. The problem was the World Wildlife Fund owned the the internet trademark/rights. There was no re-org of the company it was a name change.

Are the LA Lakers the same team as the Minneapolis Lakers?

Are the LA Dodgers the same team as the Brooklyn Dodgers?

Did the Los Angeles Angeles of Anaheim become a new baseball team each time they changed their name.

Is KFC the same company as Kentucky Fried Chicken?

Is Apple Inc. the same as Apple Computers?

Re: Official Retraction

The reason being is that a championship is only as strong as how it's owning company treats it and since the WWE treats the World Heavyweight Championship with less reverance than the WWE Championship than I have to give the WWE Championship the top billing. The WWE Championship is often defended in the main event of pay-per-views and if competed for against the top tier competitors that wrestle in the WWE, but with that said the World Heavyweight Championship is still a very prestigious title to hold, but it is not above the WWE Championship. Sure, being the World Champion should denote that you're the best there is at what you do when you're a professional wrestler, but in this case the WWE title is a “World Championship” and encompasses the fact that the WWE is the largest professional wrestling company in existance and it's champion is the highest ranking wrestler in the world. The World Heavyweight Championship is often defended earlier in the card on pay-per-view matches and is often held by a wide array of competitors ranging from top tier talent to mid-card talent and is not treated on the same level as the WWE Title.

So there you have it, my official retraction for my now infamous blog post that has reached a massive 8,998 views since it was put up mid last month. And if you've skipped the paragraph before this one I'll be happy to repeat myself once again. The WWE Championship is the main attraction in the WWE and is the top title contested by the competitors who wrestle both in the WWE and who compete around the world. And while I follow the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, and ROH World Championship just as closely, the WWE Champion is regarded by wrestling fans and promoters as the sports top championship.
Lol, now we have to argue about WWE vs IWGP. I say this half-seriously. New Japan is the best in the world at their style of wrestling (though I personally think they're getting more 'American' by the day, with cheating and CHAOS members acting like a bunch of flashy thugs).

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
Del Rio, Orton, Bryan, Ziggler, Wyatt, Usos, Cesaro, Mysterio, Kane
DGPW: Doi, Yoshino, Tozawa, Yamato, Dragon Kid, BxB Hulk, Ricochet, Super Shisa
NJPW: Okada, Nakamura, Styles ROH: Briscoes, Fish and O'Reilly, Young Bucks
All-Time: Rock, Punk, Lesnar, Angle
