Longer Title Reigns :)
We all loved to complain about the length of the title reigns, me included. I started to think about the current title reigns, so I looked up the information. Here you go:
WWE - CM Punk - 20/11/11 - 117 days
WHC - Daniel Bryan - 18/12/11 - 89 days
IC - Cody Rhodes - 12/8/11 - 217 days
US - Santino Marella - 5/3/12 - 11 days
Tag - Primo & Epico - 15/1/12 - 61 days
Diva - Beth Phoenix - 2/10/11 - 166 days
Now I'm not saying all the current title reigns are long (US, Tag), but the rest are looking great. Rhodes has held the title for 2/3rds of a year. I'm glad to see champions that hold the belts for some time. I hope this trend continues. Feel free to comment if you agree or disagree with longer title reigns or maybe about some people holding longer/shorter than needed.
I have a feeling Cody Rhodes won't be dropping the title anytime soon. with the draft coming up, there will be more main eventers heading to Smackdown and with wade Barrett reportedly getting a big push this year, I don't see Cody Rhodes as a main eventer yet. dropping the title and not moving to the main event will be a step down
Even ROH and TNA are doing good at long champions
TNA World Title- Booby Roode 142 Days
X-Division title- Austin Aries 187 Days
Tag Team Titles- Joe and Magnus 33 Days
TV Title- Robbie E 124 Days
Knockouts- Gail Kim 124
ROH World Title- Davey Richards 264 Days
TV Title- Jay Lethal 216 Days
Tag Titles- Briscoe Brothers 84 Days
Overall, I think this is a great time for all companies and their champs (Except Robbie E). But I think the most important thing about the title is DEFENCES. If they don't defend or have crappy title matches then it doesn't help the title at all
Hey don't diss Robbie E.

Thanks for posting this!! I don't really pay close attention to TNA or ROH ( I probably should) and was hoping someone would comment how they're doing.

Jay and Cody are both preoccupied with getting the World Title in my opinion and both have very few defenses really. Lethal only has 5 and Cody has 7 I think (Jackson, Dibiase, 10 man battle royal on Raw, Sheamus, Morrison(while Cody was in a suit), Booker T twice)
I really hope they are going for Cody to break Honky Tonk man's reign but I see show winning at Mania.....
I sadly see this happening too. I was hoping for a title defense against Goldust. Cody could have won, but I just wanted to see the match at Mania.

To me when you don't have a story line feud for the title I don't know why they don't just have a guy get a title shot. It is very random to have Cody wrestle every week and win every week and have those matches be non-title. The other thing that bothers me about Cody is how the announcers treat him when he beats a maineventer. When he was feuding with Ortan a couple months back they put on some decent matches on Raw and Smackdown and Cody beat Orton clean on one Raw. Both Cole and Lawler both said how big of an upset that it was. To me this just craps on the IC Title as not being important. IDC who beats who but if a champion beats someone that is not a champion it cannot be a huge upset.
If they don't make cody WHC he should stay as IC champ and in Tna Aries is doing really good job,he is a great champ
