Found this video, this match of Glen Jacobs as the dentist against Bret, skip forward abit to around 18 seconds, look how much importance is put on the IC title, in that advert it sounded like a huge crowning achievement to become IC champ (which it is!!!!)

This is the kind of importance needed on titles and this was a battle royal for the IC title! Would be so much more beneficial if they went back to this kind of booking no??

The Intercontinental Title used to seem more important than the WWF Title at times. It truly was the stepping stone / workhouse title for younger guys.

yeh and its become nothing, really is meaningless, I agree the WHC is the new IC, but thats why I think they need to unify them again! because if someone gets the WHC its not like the next natural step is 'The big one' which it used to be, as it is technically is 'The big one' although we all know better.

It's almost as if titles are not that important to WWE. The main headline for Wrestlemanaia 28 was a non-title match.

It's not like before were titles were defended in PPV shows and storylines were made. Now wrestlers just get title shots for no reason (E.g. Swagger - US title).
