WWE Should Bring Back These Three Championship Titles…

HINT: This is ONE of them….

Ever since WWE extended Monday Night RAW from a two-hour show to three hours, they’ve had some difficulty providing entertaining programming to fill the entirety of the show — I’d suggest more matches, less segments/interviews.  Adrian Fylonenko of The Bleacher Report suggest that the WWE bring back the Cruiserweight (or Light Heavyweight, if you prefer), European, and Hardcore championship titles to help the WWE keep up a solid, quality program for all three hours of RAW, as the reintroduction of these belts could and would create more dynamic storylines and feuds on RAW and –should it go the three-hour route as well — SmackDown. Essentially: WRESTLING > VIDEO FLASHBACKS.   Continue reading “WWE Should Bring Back These Three Championship Titles…”
