Not, it wasn't. Again -- look at when Benoit won the belt in 2004. He won the Rumble and voluntarily jumped to RAW to get the World Heavyweight title (thereby foregoing the WWE belt on Smackdown). The World Heavyweight belt was the main focus at that time.

It played the same role for Batista in 2005. Nobody thought JBL was running the show just because he had the WWE title; everyone knew Triple H and the World Heavyweight Title was #1.

Closing time. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.

It really wasn't. Benoit holding it doesn't really help that argument, either. HHH is the best case scenario there. WWE has always put it's titles and company above all else. The fact they got rid of it, and not the WWE Title, says it all.

disgusting to compared the WHC to the Universal title.

The "Big Gold" Belt was around since 1986

WWE Championship, and it's not even close as it has all the history.

WWE Championship. Why is this even a question?

At least Orton is around and performing. I don't want him to have the belt, but at least its on TV.

Re: Which title is more valuable, WWE Championship or Universal Championship?

Did you just start watching wrestling? Since the brand split it's been the Raw Women's title! I kid, neither feel important since the brand split, the UT was meaningless since it's inception, and the WWE title was just used as a tool to further fuck over someone who should be a high caliber heel.

Right now I care about neither, I'm most interested in the Smackdown tag titles, to see if WWE does truly have the stones to put them on Breezeango, if even for a few nights.

What say you?

Re: Which title is more valuable, WWE Championship or Universal Championship?

Neither. I keep trying to tell people this, the value of the title isn't which title means more, it's which SHOW means more. Whichever title is on Raw is the A title, because Vince uses SmackDown for experiments like Jinder Mahal, JBL, etc, while he only puts the people he truly, fully trusts as the Raw champion. The titles themselves are completely equal. You can talk about the history of the titles all you want, and how the WWE title has every name in the book, and the Universal title doesn't, but the only thing that matters is how the title is being booked at that moment, and right now, the WWE title has Jinder Mahal challenging for it, while the Universal title has Brock Lesnar as the champion, on tv or otherwise. This Jinder experiment couldn't happen on Raw, because Raw is too valuable for them to test things like that, but it could happen with the Universal title if they make the strap blue.

If you really think Vince is sitting around thinking about when he gives somebody new a world title, it has to be this belt because he's not big enough to win the other title, think again. We've had Brock as the Universal champion, we've had Goldberg as the Universal champion, we've had Cena as the WWE Champion. It's the same level.

WWE Championship, by a mile.
Just wait for the eventual Randy vs AJ feud and there won't be any doubts about this.
