Wasn't there once a rule where a title had to be defended once a month? Or have I been misled?

Regardless, it makes for much more interesting possibilities.

The same thing that happened to Hornswoggle being Vince's son, CM Punk putting Christian out of action, Kofi Kingston's push, Kane returning as the masked monster, Rock promising he'd never leave again, the anonymous RAW GM, Zack Ryder/Cena beef and various stars being kayfabe injured but no selling their injuries the very next week.

WWE ignores it.

House shows, people. All titles are defended on the house shows thus satisfying the 30-day rule :terry

Well, if we talk world titles only. They've been on the line a few times on both RAW and SD! as of late. There's a world title match this coming SD! f.x.

When you have champions that's clearly a joke to the title (Santino, Punk), then it's obvious that they don't defend them very often, if WWE wants them to have the title.

There's a lot of rules in WWE, they apply only when WWE wants them to. A MITB one, for example, since that PPV is approaching, we've had cash ins that couldn't start because the rule was that your opponent had to be on his feet, and then other ones, they just pick them up off the ground and finish them off without it being noticed.

True, but everyone knows that there's a 0.2% chance of a world title changing hands on TV when the champion's not injured.

Punk's a joke?
