Televised?[edit]

Article states that the title could only be won and lost on TV, but also refers to Booker T and Chris Benoit trading the title at house shows, which are not televised.....ChrisTheDude 09:44, 3 February 2006 (UTC)

I think the original idea was as stated in the article, but later that rule was watered down. Str1977 (smile back) 17:00, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Scott Hall[edit]

Just as a matter of interest, why did Scott Hall throw the title out?--Cini 19:00, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

I believe it was something about the belt being "worthless." He was also the United States Champion at the time, which may've had something to do with it. Jeff Silvers 18:19, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Time limit[edit]

I have corrected some clearly erroneous information on time limits. It is nothing unusual or rather it is perfectly logical that a time limit draw results in the champion retaining his title. What was special about the TV title was the short time limit and the frequency with which champions retained the title that way. However, I cannot vouch for that being a constant factor throughout the title history but it at least it was one during Steven Regal's long reigns.

Image[edit]

Is there perhaps a better image of the belt available? The one currently visible in the article is of a toy replica of the belt. Jeff Silvers 19:47, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

It's a picture of a replica, and yes, it should be replaced, but it's not a picture of a toy replica. Toys are those foam and plastic things you get for < $20. That's one of the mass produced replicas that go for ~ $200 or so, with metal plates and simulated leather straps. Calling it a toy is ridiculous and POV. 76.226.105.131 (talk) 04:41, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
