Re: Prestige of the current title belts

I don't even need to switch them around. In listing them, you put them in the same order I would have.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship
US Title
Intercontinental
Tag Team
Divas

NXT Championship
NXT Women's
NXT Tag Team

The WWEWHC is at the top because it's the top belt in the company. No matter who is holding it, it will always be the most important. The US Title is at #2 because of what Cena has been doing for it. With the US Open challenge and his promos about the belt's importance, he's made the fans care again. The IC title, while not well booked, is still above the tag titles because it's a singles belt. Singles wrestling is more important than tag team wrestling.

Regardless of what you think is the superior product, WWE is a more important brand than NXT, therefore the WWE belts are more important than the NXT belts.

They all seem pretty prestigious besides the ic title for whatever reason. Poor big guy...

Logically that does make sense.

Wouldn't change my rankings though, the Diva's title to me at least is worthless currently regardless of who the champion is.

I'd use pretty much this order. For me, personally, I'd place the Divas Title above the Tag Team because I have never cared for tag team wrestling but I do care a lot about women's wrestling. But overall I'd say the Tag Team and Diva's Titles are about "equal" in prestige since they're both separate divisions while the WWEWHC, U.S. and IC are part of a "hierarchy" of men's singles titles.

And you're right about the NXT titles. NXT is great but it's meant to be WWE's "minor leagues"

Re: Prestige of the current title belts

Rather than putting them in order, I'll just give a few comments on them.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship - Although this is the main title, many times it's felt less interesting than the other belts, even though I know the other belts have often lost a lot of their prestige, I think because this is the top belt, and usually the same talents (to a degree), it feels less challenged over at times, or maybe the talents it's just a little meh, it has been good with Rollins holding it recently, and was good when Punk, Bryan etc.. held the title, basically anyone outside of the expected (IE Cena, Orton) ... then it's good, Brock made it good, Rock wasn't bad with it either as these guys make it feel big .. but on a whole, it can be touch and go and sometimes the lower belts, I find, are more interesting.

US Title - Up until recently this belt has been pointless, it was the last of the un-needed belts in my opinion, however Cena has actually elevated it a little lately, which goes to show that Cena is good for the company when he's in these spots ... Ambrose's reign unfortunately was terrible ... and apart from recent times with the open challenge, pretty much most of them have been pointless and boring, which is why I've felt it's just a pointless belt, up until recently.

Intercontinental - My favourite belt of all as this belt feels like the step up to pushing talents into serious contenders for the main event, which I feel is more exciting than those who are already up there, at one point anyone who won this you could see as a serious threat in the main event and not all made it (Piper, Mountie, Perfect, Tornado for example) .... so it was good, of course it lost a lot of this over the years though when Cody brought the belt back, it did feel good and was one of the best things the WWE have done in a long time ... unfortunately this belt has at times also felt a little like it's lost it's prestige and it goes through phases now where it does then doesn't ... for example Big E's reign didn't really do much for it ... but then Barrett's did (at one point) start to feel worth something but even with him it went back and forth and of course due to injury too ... it just needs to be a little more consistent but it's getting there I feel, slowly but surely.

Tag Team - Again, doesn't feel like it used to when Hart Foundation, Nasty Boys, Attitude Era talents would hold the title, it is getting better now that the tag team division is getting better, and with no diss to the The Uso's this has all majorly improved since they've been away from the spotlight ... which is how it should be, variety and challenge for the titles ... which they lost when The Uso's were hogging the spotlight all the time.

Divas - I dunno, it's good for the Diva's and what else can they have, so for what it is, it's good but could be much better, it has felt a little more interesting with these reigns from Aj and Nikki etc.. and it was good when it had variety too with Kaitlyn, Paige etc.. holding it, although some reigns have been long (which is great) ... they have booked it through various talents so it's good, they should branch out a little more with it too, give Tamina a reign at some point ... she can gloat with the title with the other diva's she's with and have it taken from her also, variety is key.

NXT Championship - Great for what it is and elevates talent there.
NXT Women's - As above
NXT Tag Team - As above.

That's pretty much my feelings on them



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