Bully Ray pitches his idea for a new championship belt in WWE

Bully Ray has never been shy to share his thoughts on the pro wrestling business and recently shifted his focus on the championships in WWE.

The WWE Intercontinental Title used to be the workhorse title where the company would give the title to someone they thought could be a future world champion and before they reached the main event scene, they would hold the secondary belt.

However, for years, the Intercontinental and United States Titles have been used for mid-card talent. In the case of the United States Title, it’s rarely defended at premium live events.

During a recent edition of Busted Open Radio, Bully Ray pitched a new title called the Ironhorse Championship where you have a great worker defended every week on Raw and SmackDown.

“I just don’t get with the IC and the US Championships [not invested in those titles]. The last time that the US Championship to me mattered was when John Cena was doing the open challenge. That’s why I think they should get rid of these…I know they’re never going to get rid of the IC Championship. I know they’re never going to get rid of the US Championship. Maybe they should, but I would love to see them do what I’ve been talking about for a while now, the Ironhorse, Ironman, Ironwoman Championship,  a wrestler that wrestles every single week on Raw and SmackDown. Back in the day when I originally thought of this, I said wrestle on Raw, NXT, and SmackDown. Obviously, NXT now being a definitive developmental brand, I’ll take NXT out of the equation.

I want to see this person wrestle on Raw and SmackDown. You know who would be a great workhorse champion? A guy like [Tommaso] Ciampa, a guy like Ricochet, a guy that can go out there every single night and have great matches on television. Who are you? I’m not the world champion but I’m the best wrestler for any given 15 minutes on television. That’s what the championship represents. Love to see them do something like that.”
