Re: What if Triple H never returned from his injury in 2002?
Would there have even been the brand split? The RAW title was very much brought about because of some three initial wrestlers ego, for me the brand split and all the daftness diluted a lot of the product that includes the prestige of titles to silly things like the draft
they never had a brand split in say 1987-1988 and had perhaps just as strong perhaps stronger team, to answer all those questions that's why the likes of Rick Rude, Jake Roberts, never held the title
Jericho, Booker T, RVD were all made to look very weak which hurt their overall popularity, sure someone has to to win/lose but it can be done in a style to keep them competitive and relevant
Even without Triple H its a massively strong roster-Undertaker, the upcoming Brock Lesnar who had more than three moves back in those days, the legendary Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair, The Rock, Steve Austin, Kurt Angle etc
Plus all the talent which would develop to later become champions-Eddy Guerrero, Chris Benoit, Jeff Hardy, Edge etc
