Jericho Responds To Heyman’s Rant, WWE Unifying Title Belts?

Posted by Matt Boone June 1, 2012 4 Comments

- Chris Jericho wrote the following on Twitter in response to the rant from Paul Heyman:

“I agree with @HeymanHustle diatribe and I would like to add one more piece of advice. To really make it in this business…. you have to be willing to take a chance. And if that pisses some people off than so be it! Stop being so nice. Nice doesn’t cut it.”

– There is once again talk of WWE merging the Intercontinental and United States title. With WWE recently bringing back the classic IC title and the US title held by comedy act Santino Marella, WWE will likely drop the US title after a unification match.

There are no plans to unify the WWE Championship and the World Heavyweight title because WWE likes having both belts defended on the separate RAW and SmackDown live events.

– Former WWF announcer Sean Mooney is now the co-anchor for NBC Tucson, Arizona affiliate KVOA. Mooney also runs a production company in the area.

– Trainer Joe DeFranco has published part 2 of his article on Triple H’s pre-WrestleMania 28 workouts.

– The official theme song for WWE’s No Way Out pay-per-view is “Unstoppable” by Charm City Devils.

      They want to unify the U.S and Intercontinental titles?? I see that it can be a good idea since they don’t put the U.S. title to any use, but then that’s another less title WWE will have. WWE is already lacking in titles, but i really don’t why they only focus on the World and WWE titles.

      Good the U.S title sucks (it being a incarnation of the WCW title)…this is good news because now maybe we’ll get back to the hay days of the intercontinental title with a million and one people fighting for it and only the worthy get to move on to the wwe title after successful intercontinental runs…

      I don’t get why people hate the US title? For quite some time, it was WWE’s top-tier secondary title when the IC title was first drafted to SmackDown and non-sensically switched around Wade Barret, Morrison and Ezekiel Jackson. It was a very valuable title during the reigns of The Miz, Dolph Ziggler and Daniel Bryan.

      Right now, the fact that all PPVs are inter-shows are hurting WWE. That means less time to develop storylines for every championship. When the PPVs are SmackDown/RAW exclusives, they have months to develop storylines and what-not. Maybe adding a third hour to RAW will help these titles look valuable again.

      GOOD ridance!!! I always hated that belt since WWE introduced it, it’s nothing but an embarassment to the old WCW belt and the great wrestlers who held it in the 80s and 90s, the WWE version is a worthless toy that anyone who holds it forever puts a dark spot in their careers, even the Hardcore title had prestige and worth compared to that belt.
      Next in line, the stinking Cena spinner belt, unify it with the Big Gold Belt and have the winner of the match dump the spinner belt in a garbage can like Madusa once did
