    5, 10, 15 Time Champion Question

    Hi All,

    Got a quick question. I am aware i may be being a little pedantic, but when wrestlers are talked about being a multiple-time champion, say Cena's 10 times in 9 years , the feat is looked upon with reverence. But does that very feat also indicate that he LOST the title 10 times? Would being a champion for a longer period, say JBL's 280 days, not be more of an achievement? I am not in any way knocking the accomplishments the greats - HBK, Flair, SCSA etc, was just wondering your thoughts!

    For a few years now, holding a title, means nothing anymore, even holding a World title means nothing.
    Respect the beard !

    I see JBL's single 280 day title reign much more of a feat than Cena's 10 reigns.

    The two main titles have lost much of their reverence, due to the way they are passed around! I for one prefer long sustained reigns!

    Saying that though, Cena is ranked 4th of all time, on the number of days he's held the title! Including one stint of being Champ for 24 months out of 27!! Plus a reign of over a year, which was only ended due to injury!

    Quality > Quantity. Sure guys like HHH have had many title reigns, but they are for the most part good reigns with feuds etc..

    Guys like Cena and Edge have not had an impressive title reign, so they are worthless.

    Just out of curiosity, how would you quantify a reign as, 'impressive?'

    Same.
    That reign was a great reign too with some great matches behind it.
