Yes, though there were a few difficulties because The Ring failed to recognized Jr. divisions. It's as consistent as hell.

Your way is ideal and it's unfortunate it isn't the way today but the reality is it isnt.

I loved your essay btw, I don't agree with it but I liked the cut of your jib.
I'm the last person who wants to tell a champion that he isn't. As far as he knows, he is and he bled for it. Those bleeping mutha bleepers who ruined the successions for 50 years are to blame and I wish they all had one neck.

I distinguish one from the other to let the belted champions call themselves champions and be called champions. I think that the term has been compromised anyway but can leave that unsaid so as not to hurt anyone. I call the true champions something different and think it works.

Listen, all I know is that the nonsense has to stop.
