That was a lot more fun imo.
It stirs debate/controversy. It makes things more exciting.
It leads to more compelling forum shit-talking.
Two champs is better imo. I don't need one supreme champ, especially if he only fights twice a year and hand picks his opponents.
Having two different champs would force champs to fight, and to fight legit competition because otherwise everyone would say 'meh, who cares about X, Y is the better champ anyway'
Because they were in different organizations. It was all about who would win, why have two guys that could be matched up with one another not fight for the sake of the talk.....
I don't usually say things like this but this is easily one of the dumbest ******* ideas that has ever graced this forum.
