So you want it to be more important than the WORLD title?

I think they need a general lower midcard card title as well (Like the European Title) for the guys who aren't quite at IC Title level, but aren't eligible to compete in the cruiser/light heavyweight division. Guys like JTG, Santino, Brodus, Riley etc.

If Cena can main event without sniffing the title picture, they don't need two World Titles for the house shows. Just put a really popular guy on the shows that the champion isn't on. Or put the IC Title on someone who's a big deal in the eyes of the fans (i.e. give it back to The Miz), and let him headline the house shows.

The HArdcore Title should be without the 24/7 rule. It shouldn't be used for comedy segments, but at the same time it doesn't have to be a total bloodbath like ECW. Make the matches like the street fights we've had in recent years. Or maybe have the champion defend in a cage match, ladder match, or table match to break up the monotony every once in a while.
Yeah, I agree. Sounds reasonable. The problem could, however, be: Who are those really popular guys the company would trust to be big enough draws besides Cena? Esp. on the Smackdown side? And from everything I've read Vince still firmly believes you need to have a world champion on every house show. I don't think he'd be willing to try out anything else.

Anyway, I've never been a fan of having two midcard and World Titles, but now that the roster split has become meaningless, the concept has lost rly any sense it may once have had. If it weren't for those houseshows....

24/7 rule, I guess you guys are right. It's probably only fun for a time and then just devalues the title until it becomes totally meaningless.

They could make a big deal out of the merger into new title by having past wrestlers who held those titles be on the show. Make an event out of it or something.

I like the IC and US titles and between both shows there are too many wrestlers to have just one singles midcard title, with the tag titles being the only other midcard belts. Now if they were to merge the IC and US titles. They would need to bring in another singles midcard title but not quite at the same level as US and IC belts.
WWE should have a Television/European Championship so the line up would be:

WHC/WWE Championship
Intercontinental Championship
European Championship
Tag Team Championship
Divas Championship

'Universal Champion' sounds kinda weird.
But the two titles should really be unified. Same goes to the World Titles, would give both much more prestige.

One midcard title for one brand. It's good as is now.

24/7 was probably the worst feature of the Hardcore title, it actually took legitimacy away from a title that should have been reserved for guys who could be seen as tough enough to be specialists in 'no-holds-barred' matches.
For me the guys who defined what should have been The Hardcore Champion were the likes of Steve Blackman, Raven, Hardcore Holly, Tommy Dreamer and Al Snow; mid-card guys that were good workers and tough enough to work in a stiffer style or gimmick matches. Mankind, Taker, RVD, Big Show and Jeff Hardy, while adding a bit of kudos to the title, were in actual fact too far up the card and don't epitomise what the title stood for.
The fact it could be won by The Mean Street Posse or one of The Godfathers Hos was the ruination of a championship that had been one of the defining parts of the Attitude Era.

Horrible, horrible name and the idea itself makes no sense whatsoever.

One brand is supposed to just not have a middle tier at all? No.
