Do You Agree With How The IC Belt Is Used?

For a while now the IC belt has been used to get wrestlers over. Not every time, but it does happen.

Curtis Axel was a clear example. Instead of having him work in the mid card, prove him self and get over, then give him the belt, he got the belt before he was over, in hope the IC title would do some of the work for him.

I think this concept has made the IC title much, much less prestigious.

Now they've unified the WWE and WHC belts hopefully the IC title will get some more exposure.

Axel clearly wasn't ready to win the title true but it was a good moment to give him the title (I believe it was close to Father's Day?) at the time. He just held it for way too long

I do not.

It should be used to hold up pants.

It's been getting more significance since the belts were unified, it's been in important segments of late. Langston should hold on to the belt for a while, provided he defends the belt.

Re: Do You Agree With How The IC Belt Is Used?

I want both IC & US titles to get more time and at least a feud going, I know Langston has been getting more tv time but it's mainly in tag matches and not so much singles for his title he needs to get with someone and make a feud same goes with Ambrose he continues to talk that he's defended it all over the globe but when was the actual last time he defended it on tv? Remember the days when you had to defend it within 30 days or you'll be stripped, those were the days.

Re: Do You Agree With How The IC Belt Is Used?

The IC title should be given to midcarders who have got over with the crowd, they should then be featured in properly booked storylines, so that when they lose the title they are ready to move up to the main event. The current problem with the IC title is that it is given to random flavour of the month midcarders and their reign is booked poorly, which means when they lose the title, they have nothing to show for it.



Fave Five:
1. Sasha Banks
2. Sami Zayn
3. AJ Styles
4. Becky Lynch
5. Kevin Owens

Re: Do You Agree With How The IC Belt Is Used?

I've linked this thread a few times, as this pretty much explains it in depth and the best way it could be explained in regards to the IC title, I'm surprised this thread hasn't had more responses really considering how much the IC comes up for discussion since the titles were unified : https://www.wrestlingforum.com/genera...rectified.html

Hopefully it should now, get back to this now that the titles have been unified.



Don't worry Heff, we can still have a nice Thanksgiving. I bought us a nice big vegetarian turkey. It'll be delicious!
