WWE has two mid card Championships on the main roster, WWE intercontinental championship for WWE SmackDown and WWE United States championship for WWE Raw. There was a time that WWE failed to book these titles properly, and there were some great times as well. But what is the situation of these two titles now?
As we can all see, none of the titles have been booked properly for over a couple of months. WWE are struggling to book both Championships properly. Let us look at the situation of both titles right now.
The Current Situation Of The Mid Card Championships In WWE – Analysis
Let us start with the Intercontinental Championship that is in SmackDown right now. The title is currently held by Apollo Crews and he won the title after he defeated Big E at WrestleMania 37.
But after his feud with the current Mr. Money in the Bank was over, he never got a Feud with any other wrestler for the title. In fact he did not defend the title for the last two pay per view events of WWE.
Since Big E is now Mr Money in the Bank, he would not be feuding for the WWE Intercontinental Championship right now. Even after a lot of big names are sitting idle, they are failing to book the Intercontinental Championship properly.
United States championship of RAW was not been defended in any of the pay-per-view events since WrestleMania 37. Sheamus in spite of being the champion, did not defend the title and forth request in a non title match at WrestleMania Backlash pay per view event.
Of course, Sheamus is having a Feud with Humberto Carrillo for the title which is going on for over a couple of months, but it is not being taken seriously at all, neither by WWE nor by the fans. There are wrestlers available who can have a nice bout for the United States Championship but WWE does not seem to be interested to book this title properly.
We hope things changed properly for both titles very soon. We can understand WWE was not giving much attention to anything except the main two World Championships as long as shows where taking place in the Thunderdome. But now the fans are back and everything is returning to normal soon. We seriously hope these two legendary mid card championships the correct treatment now.
