The Case for Extending a Title Run

Hey Scott. Could you make a case for extending the following title runs? Or did they pull the plug at the right time?
​- ​

Macho Man in 88/89

​Macho will always be champion of my heart and should have reigned for a thousand years.  Especially as a heel.  ​

​- ​

Macho Man in 92

​Eh, not so much here.  It was clearly a failing title reign.  ​

​- ​

Bret in 92/93

​If they were going to build to the Hogan match, they should have kept it on him.  Otherwise, they were right to take it off him from a business standpoint.  Other than Yokozuna, they could have tried Mr. Perfect if he was sticking around.  

​- ​

Bret in 94

​Tough call.  The business was in freefall and ​it probably wouldn't have mattered who was on top. But better Bret than Diesel.  

​- ​

HBK in 96

​Nope, Shawn was poison by November and they probably waited too LONG to take it off him.  
​- ​

Triple H in 99 (meaning he wins it from Mankind and we just bypass the whole McMahon and Big Show title wins)

​I'll allow it.  ​

​- ​

Jericho in 2002

​That title reign was actually making him a bigger geek by the day.  He was lucky they took it off him.  Either way, Hogan was getting it anyway.  ​

​- ​

Benoit in 2004

​Ditto, that title reign was doing him no favors and it was just to set up Orton anyway.  ​

​- ​

Punk in 2012 to Royal Rumble 2013

​If you ask Punk he'll say he should still be champ today.  ​
