Many fans would agree that WWE’s product has fallen a lot when it comes to quality. The current product has a lot of flaws, which include the likes of 50/50 booking, feuds that don’t go anywhere and many more. WWE was also criticized for how they have booked two prominent titles.

Austin Theory is the current WWE United States Champion. On the other hand, Ricochet is the current WWE Intercontinental Champion. However, neither of their runs have been memorable so far.

In fact, it has been a long time since either of the titles has felt important. While speaking on the Busted Open show, WWE Hall Of Famer Bully Ray expressed his disappointment with how WWE has made the US and IC titles feel unimportant.

“Here is what I want to tell youabout the IC Championship – I seriously have no idea what they are anymore, I am not sure why I should care about these championships anymore. I don’t get it. Normally, the man or the woman makes the championship or the championship makes the man or woman. Let’s take the Intercontinental Championship which is supposed to be the second most important championship in the WWE. What is that championship doing for Ricochet and what is Ricochet doing for that championship?


When it comes to secondary championships, I think AEW is getting it right with the TNT Championship. I’m invested and interested in that championship because of the amount of times it’s changed hands, what it’s doing to elevate guys, give us interesting matches. I don’t get it with the IC Championship and the United States Championship.”

For many fans, John Cena was the last truly great United States Champion thanks to his weekly open challenge. As for the IC Title, fans believe The Miz was terrific as the champion. We wonder if WWE will give both titles importance again or not.
