I'm sure the likes of the Million Dollar Man, Roddy Piper, and Scott Hall are still looked upon fondly despite never holding the WWE Championship.

But my point is that, if people didn't think "you don't matter if you're not a World Champion" we wouldn't have the World Heavyweight Championship as a paper title. You give the belt to a young guy and say "We're really fond of your work, but we don't have faith in you to carry the company as WWE Champion, so take this belt so people will acknowledge you as a World Champion even though we didn't really give you the ball". Or as a charity belt for veterans to say "Oh, thanks for jobbing all those years, you're not good enough to be WWE Champion, but you can have this other belt instead". The IC and US Titles should be the stepping stone belts, but they've been replaced by the World Heavyweight Championship in that role just so that wrestlers can be a "World Champion" on paper, despite not getting a real chance to run with the ball.


I do believe that Sandow and Rhodes could be future World Heavyweight Champions. But it won't mean much if said World Title isn't treated with the same merit that the WWE Championship is.
Your imply the exact opposite. You imply that "it doesn't matter if you have been champion", which is far worse for the title. Is it possible for someone to be great without the title? Absolutely. But to blame people for actually respecting the belts? I would like to know how exactly is it devaluing the World title if I think someone would be a bigger deal after holding it?

The more we care about the titles and title holders, the more they are valued. It's really simple.

Stay on your feet! No crawling, no CHEATING!(you're too big, fella)
Listen to me when I talk to you.
NO CRAWLING!

Re: Team Rhodes Scholars

I'm loving these guys as a team but I'm hoping they don't last too long as I'd like to see each of them break out on their own soon. But yeah, good stuff.

Re: Team Rhodes Scholars

i think its good they tagged up , for now. These guys are great invidual talents so i hope they break up in couple of months.

Re: Team Rhodes Scholars

I think both guys are doing great as a tag team and will continue to push each other up to the top. After a short run with the tag titles, one might turn face (probably Cody cause he has been there before) and feud with one another, let their ego's get the better of them before heading into the upper mid card/main scene.

Re: Team Rhodes Scholars

At this point I think even Cesaro would have made a better tag team partner for Sandow than Rhodes.....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQFsl...eature=related

Re: Team Rhodes Scholars

Cody Rhodes has been in more tag teams and had more entrance songs, than he had titles.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

Oddly enough the numbers are close He is a 4 time tag team champion (with 3 different partners). Rhodes Scholars is his 4th team. He's a 2 time IC champion so that's 6 title reigns, 4 teams and for entrance songs 4 of his own, Legacy's, as well as the 2 Priceless songs. In fact, he may not have had many title reigns but his IC title reign is all time top 10 in length, and interestingly in 2008 (I think), he held the World Tag Team Title for around 300 days (of course including the split with Holly and alignment with Dibiase as well as the 7 day reign of Cena and Batista).

Re: Team Rhodes Scholars

Surprised but pleased with the little development on RAW. They got a nice little minitron (and titantron) for the team (although there isn't much going on with it).

I don't even wanna know what kind of 6'2 roided up freak children make up your neighborhood.

Lol @ their titantron logo being an exact replica of the Night of Champions logo, talk about laziness.

I realise where they're going and that WWE will push Roman Reigns straight to the top. However for me, Dean Ambrose is by far the most talented in that group and I think eventually if they just give him the spotlight then he's going to shine. As soon as he touches a mic everyone else can just sit down as he's magic on it. So It remains to be seen, I think they're all talented but to me Dean was the star of that group. I think Roman looks like the star of that group but I don't think he's nearly as talented as Dean.
