The WWE Championship has always been the crown jewel of WWE with many of the biggest legends in the business picking up the title over the years. In the most current era, WWE has introduced the Universal Championship to the RAW brand and the company seems to have already decided that this is their new top belt.

Ever since the brand split back in 2016 the WWE Championship has been exclusive to SmackDown Live whilst the Universal Championship has been exclusive to RAW.

Many of the WWE Universe have commented on the fact that the Universal title was rarely defended under Brock Lesnar’s reign, but it appears that Reddit User DanTheStripe has revealed a much more damning statistic regarding the WWE Championship.

It’s been more than two years since the brand split and more than six months since the company announced that all pay-per-view events would be co-branded moving forward. Despite this, the WWE Championship is still yet to be defended in the main event of any co-branded pay-per-view and there have already been 14.

The likes of AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, and even Jinder Mahal have held the title over the past few years but none of them were able to push it up to main event status.

Hell in a Cell this past weekend saw AJ Styles and Samoa Joe pushed down the card as Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns collided inside the steel for the Universal Championship.

Interestingly, it was Randy Orton and Jeff Hardy who stepped inside the cage for SmackDown, whilst Styles and Joe went one-on-one in a standard match.

The WWE Championship has been the most prestigious Championship for WWE for more than three decades, it’s worrying that the company has now decided that a title with a two-year history deserves to be ranked higher.
