A Golden “Hot Potato”

For some inexplicable reason, the WWE has decided to play “Hot Potato” with the United States Championship, ever since WWE Fastlane – first it was Randy Orton defeating Bobby Roode, then it was Jinder Mahal defeating Randy Orton, Rusev and Bobby Roode at WrestleMania, now – Jeff Hardy is thrown in the mix as he defeats Jinder Mahal to become the new United States Champion on Raw.

While this is great news for Jeff Hardy (obviously) as he has joined the Grand-Slam club of holding every title possible, it does throw the credibility of the title into question, as one of our own here at the office asked the question – how much credibility can there be for a championship when your simply playing pass the parcel with it?

Naturally, there will be a rematch for the greatest Royal Rumble event but if Jinder Mahal reclaims the crown of Untied States champion then our colleague argues – what the fuck is the point?

I’m sorry to say I would have to agree, why make a champion lose the belt only to win it a few weeks later…you make a mockery out of the title and considering the joke they’ve turned the Universal Championship into, they really can’t afford to do so with another of the prizes on Raw


Been a fan of the WWE since 2000, watched a few from the early years online, wasn’t a fan of where the “Powers that be” were taking the company but it has gotten better with the brand split, I thought that it was a format that worked
