Title Reign

Hey Scott, hope all is well. Besides the 5 minute reign in 88, why was Andre never champ? I know back in the day, you didnt need the title to be over, but, Andre was money and could have had a title reign around the Backlund era. Was it Andre not wanting the strap?

​Andre made far more money touring the country, and making him champion would have killed the drawing power because people could see him all the time.  ​
