    The "Strap"

    OK, what it is the obsession with the IWC and wrestlers winning titles? Anymany times have we read Bryan should win the big one.......Rock shouldnt win the strap, Ziggles for champ..... and so on and so on!!! WHAT DIFFERANCE DOES IT MAKE????????!!!!! Surely all we want is for a entertaining storyline, something to have us on the dge of our seats....and only on a few occasions does the strap increase the creditability of a storyline.... Wrestlers success arent based on the titles won but how over they are as talents. Thoughts?

    I think a lot of people pt themselves in the shoes of those backstage, and think about who has earned the right to be top of the heap.

    The only problem I have with say, giving the title to the rock is that it sends a message to the rest of the roster that you don't have to work hard all year round putting on a great show for the fans; as long as you can entertain for 2 or 3 months out of the year. That isn't really something that benefits the overall product on a day to day basis. I don't really care about who has a title if we are getting a good storyline out of people.


    To hell with insincerity. Fuck you!

    It's like the inner mark inside all of us that never really grew up.

    Deep down, we know the titles are props. We know champions and contenders are simply names to further scripted storylines. We know the only real difference between a world title and a secondary title is in the name only. We know it's just a show.

    But we like to believe they hold true significance. It's like that part of us that continues to suspend disbelief.

    Because it's apart of the fun is raging when someone you hate (Like HHH for me) wins a title then someone you love beats them for it.

    Why do you cheer for your favorite sports team to win it's respective title? Huh? Because it's the same hear. It shows that they have what it takes to boast that they are the best until someone else knocks them off of their proverbial pedestal.

    Totally disagree. If anything, what the locker room should take away from it is this: Work hard enough and connect with the fans the way The Rock did in the past and you will always have a place in the WWE. And how does a top 5 superstar of all time winning the strap not benefit the product? Of course they should push newer talent, but the current talent is just not on the same level as The Rock. Looks like the newer talent needs to step their game up! Unfortunately, "working hard all year" doesn't put asses in seats.

    my question is, why is it the same ppl claiming the rock winning would send the wrong message, also want punk vs. taker for the belt. one would think it would send the same message if taker won. he is there for 2-3 months. oh yea and you can not say taker never left us, he does every year.

    Simple. When a talent wins the strap it shows that they are one of the best in the business and the WWE has confidence that their champ can carry the company. It is a goal that most superstars work towards night in and night out. From a fans point of view it's nice to know that the guy you get behind is "that damn good".

    Personally i think it can add a freshness to the show, when someone who hasnt held a belt or hasnt had it for a long time gets a run with it, it opens up a few new possablities for new feuds or adds something differnet to exsisiting feuds
