Do you think you guys would ever see the WWE go through a reformation like they did after the invasion where they end the division between RAW and Smackdown?

Ideally I would probably enjoy watching wrestling a bit more if it was more unified. More cohesive. There's a lot of talent on the WWE roster and it just seems like from a creative standpoint, keeping everything separated like it is stifles opportunities for different feuds and so on.

Also, with there being SO MANY different belts it seems like it takes away from the significance of holding one. I'd like from them to retire all but the WWE championship, Intercontinental championship, the tag team belts and if there even is one, a lightweight/cruiserweight belt. Being called the champion should MEAN something.

lack of people actually characters is a close second
This is a good point. I've always likened professional wrestling to superhero comics. They're both a story-driven entertainment medium where musclebound characters in cool costumes fight each other.

We're lacking interesting or endearing characters. All the wrestlers that I get excited about watching wrestle are the veterans who are very much who they are in those roles. Not necessarily as a heel or a face but in their look, style, everything that you experience when watching them.

Identity is important.

Problem is, there would be one main belt, and loads of competitors wanting it. Therefore, there would be no room for all these people who deserve a push, like Miz or others. It would just be Cena, Edge, Punk, Rey, Orton.
That's what the Intercontiental belt is for. It's like a secondary belt. You have to work your way up to main event status. You'd have a top tier vying for the WWE championship and you'd have others busting ass to earn a shot at the Intercontinental belt.

winning PPV matches could do it such as how the winner of the rumble is given number one contender status. I know that's almost luck of the draw type situation but it could work. The WWE's flow of events and stories worked and worked well before and I think it could work in the same fashion again. It just seems more meaningful to have just a few belts and matches leading up to an opportunity to wrestle for the WWE Championship.

Also, not all main eventers were rabid for the championship all the time. Some of them feuded for other reasons. The end game is to make people care about more than just a handful of wrestlers.
