The Major Flaw with The WWF/WWE Championship?

Rating: 5 votes, 3.80 average.
Hi guys this would be the second blog I have done this week and I look to stir the pot a little here and see what happens.


Now for years i have been wondering when the WWE will crown an African American WWE Champion. This has bothered me quite a bit. If you look through the 90's and today WWF/WWE has had many Great African American professional singles wrestlers. Now many will probably say "The Rock" was the first African American WWE Champion which I would love to agree with but he is mixed and is American Samoan according to his birth record. So i'm not sure you can call him the First not that WWE ever has.

Mark Henry
Dee Low Brown
Ron Simmons
Shelton Benjamin
R-Truth/ Kwik / Ron Killings
The Godfather
Bobby Lashley

and perhaps 2 of the most capable were


Ahmed Johnson: He was a major power house was pretty well skilled, had decent mic skill and had the build of a WWF Champion, But even after becoming the First WWE IC Champion he never got any further then stuck in the middle of the Mid Card and Main Event Status. This is unfortunate for me because i was a huge Johnson fan and he clearly deserved to be put in the Main event for the WWF Championship even if it was a short "Miz or Del Rio like" run.

Booker T:Now there is absolutely no reason for Booker not to have been crowned a WWE Champion. This guy paid his dues in WCW and WWF/E and won the World Heavyweight Championship, World Tag Team Championships, WCW World Tag Team Championships, Intercontinental Championship; United States Championship; WCW World Television Championship; Hardcore Championship; 2006 King of the Ring. Now tell me with a resume like that and being one of the all time most successful wrestlers in history why isnt Booker T a former WWE Champion? He had it all in ring ability, Mic Skills, a great character along with a huge following of fans and a great mind for the business. I have heard Booker say on many occasions that his biggest regret is never holding the WWE Championship which to WWE is the holy grail of the company.

Now im not trying to hate on WWE most know im a huge WWE sympathizer and fan. But we have all heard the rumblings of maybe some Racism behind the scenes. Michael Hayes the reason Bobby Lashley and Krystal left for rumored verbal very racist assaults on Bobby and Krystal which im sure doesn't go along with the B.A.Star Campaign. Now something says to me that something must change within the WWE. John Cena never counted as an African american BTW.


So i guess i ask all of you am i wrong? Is this ok? Do you count Rock as the first WWF/E Champion? Out of all the things WWE has done to make me kinda make a face and say wow not sure this is a good thing. This has been a major flaw within WWE for years in my eyes.


Ok so i was just bringing to light a subject i feel pretty strongly about and ask how some of you guys feel on this very subject and i wanna know am i wrong about this?


Have a great day guys be safe.

    If I remember right Booker T won the WHC which while not the same WWE likes to pretend they are the same so its unfair to not count that.

    I appreciate you bringing these facts to surface, as many over look these detriments. You make a valid claim, especially when it comes to Booker T, not only is he the uncrowned black wwe champion, HE is one of the greatest never to hold the title period. Ron Simmons, Ahmad Johnson, Dlo, are also others that lend a hand to validation. Kofi Kingston, R-truth is also over due as wwe champion, him being the black NWA champion; granted by the man himself Ricky Steam Boat. MVP, SHELTON BENJAMIN, two big names and former wwe stars who never got that push, It all seems to come to a halt at the US and IC titles and the new age glorified IC title "The World Heavyweight Title"

    I'd say Lashley could have been a world champion if he had not left over his wife. Ahmed Johnson lost his job because he injured a lot of wrestlers. Henry just broke through here recently. R-Truth is capable, but who knows. I would have loved to seen MVP be a world champ. I thought he was until his terrible losing streak ruined his career thanks to HHH making him job to him in main events to start it off.

    Interesting blog. I think what your looking for is what the WWE has been on a high kick as of late "The First (Insert Country Here) Born WWE Champion. They have done it with Alberto Delrio and soon they will ride the crap out it with Sheamus. If the WWE gave the title to a white African Born wrestler, would that count?

    First and foremost in America 1 drop of African American blood makes you black so lets clear up the debate: by all accounts the Rock is considered black & Samoan which would mean that the WWE has had 2 Samoan WWE/F Champions & still no African American WWE/F Chapmion. Ron Simmons is still considered the first African American World Champion. Its rather sad that we still care about color. Vince McMahon is Irish & a bit of an @$$hole & would never allow his precious WWE/F title to be held by a Black man! Look at the list of good black wrestlers made by Mr.Champion & had even a few more: Tony Atlas, Rocky Johnson(The Rocks dad) they were the first ever African American World tag team champions & for decades thats as high as African Americans could rise in wrestling. Especially in WWE/F!

    Like Rick said they love to play to the first of a kind champ. Still referring to Punk as the only straight edge WWE champ ever. Wait till Barrett wins his first, they will bore us to death with it, he will claim he is better than the bulldogs or Regal. These things are interestings facts but it really shouldn't be played on that much. A wrestler is a wrestler no matter where they're from or what their background is.

    It still pisses me off that everyone knows the WWE Championship is the true top championship yet they continue to pretend on TV the World Heavyweight Championship is just as big.

    Booker T not winning it should be a huge strike against WWE.
