Re: Putting the Intercontinental or US title on a WWE title contender?
Why do people bring up things like this? Shawn Michaels was the European Champion and went up against Bret Hart in NINETEEN NINETY SEVEN. It's now 2013. The midcard championships barely mean a thing anymore.
Besides, as someone else mentioned, to me the midcard championship would seem even LESS important if the champion went after the world title.
