Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

How many titles does a guy really need to be considered one of the greatest of all time? I remember the days when Booker T would constantly refer to himself as the five-time WCW champion, and that was impressive. But how long ago was that, really? Ten years? Has the business really changed so much in that time that double-digit title wins like Triple H's and John Cena's are necessary to attain that status?

That feels dangerous to me, honestly. There are a lot of guys, very talented guys, who aren't necessarily even going to be in the business long enough to break through to the top, let alone win the big title a dozen times. Seems like they're weakening the importance of individual title victories somewhat, which is why 300-day reigns like CM Punk's are nice to see.

I vaguely remember someone commenting to Booker T that being a five-time champion just means you've lost the belt four times...
