I know there has been a long held general consensus that there should only be one world title…..however, do you think that December was the worst possible time to unify the belts? Besides from the mistakes they made if it anyway (just 3 weeks build, disregarding Jericho's previous win, burying it on a forgettable December PPV), I can't help but think that if they wanted an Orton v Batista title match (for say the WWE title), they could have had the match and not had the negativity surrounding it simply by putting Bryan in a World title feud leading up to Mania (take your pick of opponents – Christian, Ziggler, Cena, Reigns, Sheamus).
Even at EC, they could have run a storyline of Orton safeguarding one belt by only putting the World title on the line in the chamber (and of course losing it).
I would say it is too late to split the belts now in time for Mania…..or is it?! Vince returns Monday and splits the titles, tournament for one culminating at Mania (with D-Bry winning)?
Keep up the great work
