Forget everything that matters in the WWE prior to 2002?

Does this make any sense? No. However, it seems as though the creative staff only take from history what they want. Take for example the WWE Tag Team titles. The New Day are said to have the longest reign of all time. That's only if you start from 2002. What is this bullshit? The Longest tag team title reign of all time in WWE(formerly known as the WWF) history belongs to The Demolition. They held then the WWF tag team titles for 487 days, a record that will never be broken by The New Day. I don't want to hear this shit about it being the WWF either. They still use history from the Attitude Era. Just because this was in the very late 80's and 1990 doesn't meant it's not relevant. It's this type of bullshit that bothers me the most about the writers. We're talking about one of the best tag teams of all time. The Demolition were dominant in the WWF during a time where there was some name tag teams. The competition was great. The Demolition beat those teams over and over again. Managed by the great Mr. Fuji they were a serious force to be reckon with.

You are absolutely correct. Makes you wonder who the writers consider the longest reigning IC Champion. I believe Demolition had legal issues against WWF and Honky isn't in Vince's good graces either.

Yeah, it's dumb. Really, what they should do is what WCW did with the NWA Title. Yes, it's not the same exact title, but it's a branch into the lineage.

All past WWE Tag Team Champions should count under the same lineage because there was a title merger at WrestleMania 25. The old lineage doesn't just die, it flows into the new one.

Re: Forget everything that matters in the WWE prior to 2002?

Same thing with the current Women's Title. It has a history of two people. Meanwhile the other WWE women's title (1956-2010) has 54 years of history and connects to all the major champions. Why not just say it's the same belt? Especially since it was merged with the Diva's title which Charlotte held until they switched it with the new Women's championship.

Throw in not connecting the WHC to the WCW title even though it was the same belt. And even that they couldn't keep consistent. Sometimes it was considered connected, other times not.

The U.S. title makes it even more confusing since they connect it to the WCW/NWA
version.

Why are they so against letting their titles having a prestigious history?

It's even weirder because they try to have it both ways. They want Charlotte to be the "first ever" WWE Women's Champion, but they also want to say that she was champion since last September.

And yeah, it's especially strange that they DO count the WCW U.S. Title's lineage. I mean, wha?

Re: Forget everything that matters in the WWE prior to 2002?

WWE loves to hit the reset button on their title lineages so they can do the "longest reign EVER!" deal every couple years. See: Original draft WHC not being the WCW title, Divas title being kept instead of the original Women's title, 2002 WWE Tag titles being kept over the original World Tag titles, and most recently considering the new Women's title a different lineage from the old championship with the same name. Some of the older championships have insanely long title reigns that will never be broken, and WWE doesn't like that.

Re: Forget everything that matters in the WWE prior to 2002?

Ever since they merged the Tag Team Titles at Wrestlemania 25, it's been confusing as fuck. WWE have been claiming Londrick as the longest tag team champions before New Day broke their record and they held the WWE Tag Team Titles. The titles Demolition held the longest were the World Tag Team Titles but they never acknowledged that even though both Tag belts were merged.

If WWE are pulling this bullshit, there's slim chance we see Demolition get into the WWE HOF anytime soon when they should already be in.
