[SPOILERish] Don Callis addresses the Grand Title

He replied to a fan who seemed to have hit the nail on the head regarding the direction of the title, They're burying it.

Sunrise, wrong side of another day,
Sky high and six thousand miles away,
Don't know how long I've been awake,
Wound up in an amazing state,
Can't get enough,
And you know it's righteous stuff,
Goes up like prices at Christmas,
Motorhead, remember me now Motorhead!

Makes sense now although would of preferred it getting merged with another title like they did with the KOTM when Lashley won all the gold before.

I guess he's Sydals manager now.

And can you bury the belt more than by giving it to Matthews?

I kind of get why they did it this way. By giving it to Mathews, an inactive wrestler, they are effectively saying the title is inactive. This would prevent Sydal from being the last champion. It doesn't really enhance the career of a final champion, and since Mathews is no longer a wrestler, it ends there. I think this is their intent, unless this is some kind of spoof storyline against the U.S title in WWE.

I mean the title is dumb as fuck but they should have just changed it to something better

It's a shit idea with the 3 rounds bollocks like it's MMA (even though championship fights tend to be 5 in the likes of UFC & Bellator), very piss poor attempt

Josh Matthews just can the title

Good move, the only good thing a out the title was the sweet looking belt. Ot is a shame they didn't let Bahh be the last to hold it

re: [SPOILERish] Don Callis addresses the Grand Title

Hahaha I like that, not just taking the belt away but burying it as well and in the manner they did. Good stuff. It never did quite work but at least they tried after Corgan left. Not a terrible track records of champions either. At the last tapings I thought it was used okay, the stuff with Bahh, EC3 and Sydal was fine. Onwards and upwards with only 3 titles sounds smart to me.

Impact doesn't know how to fucking book a midcard title to save their lives. It's not that hard, if you're having a hard time figuring it out then they should watch how New Japan book their secondary titles.
