To Many Title Reigns Making Titles Worthless

I remember when HHH won his tenth WWE Championship. It was just after the title had been made vacant after a triple threat match between edge and beniot. HHH walked out of the elimination chamber as a 10 time Champion. Now say what you think about him I for one am not his biggest fan, I also think he works a lot better as a heel than a face. (Don't get me started on the DX reunions) but for all that I really felt he deserved that accomplishment. He is one of the few wrestlers who had come through the attitude era and earlier constantly at the top of his game and not getting a little too big for his boots, (Like the Rock) or taking time off for anything other than injury. (Like Jericho) I thought it would be a feat that we would not see for another generation. But oh how I was wrong.
For the last couple of years it’s been open season for the WWE Championship and World Title, Being thrown back and forth like a volley ball between the same superstars all much younger than HHH was when he achieved his feat. Randy Orton Edge all ten a piece I think and other than edge could have a good ten years left. What’s next 20, 30 50 time World Champion? It’s ridiculous. It makes the great reigns of the likes of Hulk Hogan, Rick Flair, Austin seem worthless and with the same superstars still being push ahead of great younger talents it’s only going to get worse.
What’s the solution? I really don't know. All I know is the likes of Cena and Orton will have a lot more title reigns to rack up before they hang their boots up for good
