• “Just have ONE champion” – Veteran AEW Personality On WWE Having Too Many Titles
During a recent ‘Ask Arn Anything’ special episode of his weekly ‘The Arn Show’ podcast, NWA/WCW/WWF Legend Arn Anderson addressed the crazy amount of championship belts floating around in professional wrestling these days.
While he’s still working (in a non-wrestling role) for Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling, where they have quite a few 2nd & 3rd rated titles, that don’t really have much of a purpose at all, The Enforcer still based his evaluation on his former employer, WWE.
Here’s what the 2012 WWE Hall of Famer said:
“There should’ve been a World Champion, an Intercontinental Title or U.S. Champion that made you the No. 1 contender for the World Championship, Tag Titles, and a Women’s Championship.
The U.S. Title never had the luster after probably the Crockett days.
Like you have two companies with RAW and SmackDown, but still you could just have one champion that floats between the two television shows.”
