Default let's set the record straight.....

I've been reading quite a bit about champions that haven't defended their title since WMXX.....

defending a title each week on television was once reserved solely for the TV champion, and if there was a major title being defended on tv it really meant something.....nowadays, it seems like each week there are two title defenses on each show.....


take, for example, John Cena.....Cena has wrestled each week on SD, come out and got the crowd involved by being a true face (ie, saving Torrie) and been an all around good guy.....that is what the champion does.....

Eddie Guerrero hasn't defended his title each week.....but he is involved in the show each week.....

Benoit has been involved yet the only actual title defense was the built up match against HBK.....

Orton has defended the IC title belt just once since the last ppv.....other than that, he's been around but not wrestling for the title.....

you see, the champions and that championship belt is supposed to be something special.....when there is a title defense, it is supposed to be something special.....therefore, each champion shouldn't defend their title every week on TV.....

that's part of the reason everything was so watered down for so long.....every body and their neighbor's dog had received an opportunity to wrestle for a title belt.....and it lost it's true meaning.....

so, don't complain and say Cena isn't doing his job because he hasn't defended the title very often since WMXX.....or Benoit has only defended his title once.....that's the way it is supposed to be.....that helps give the belt some meaning.....and the champions a purpose.....


okay, I'm off the soapbox me if you'd like.....
