It cheapens the belt when all
of the championship reigns are short. Right now we're seeing an overreaction to that idea in professional wrestling; right now, the people booking are either so fearful of short champions or enamored of long ones that the current thinking is "every champion needs to hold the belt for several months."
We are, of course, on the cusp of Austin Aries' brief reign. But as for the other championships? People don't go to a concert to see the opening act; they go to see the headliner. The headliner is sitting somewhere in North Carolina right now, wondering how he had the good fortune to be employed by people who love him so desperately despite the total lack of respect he's shown them in the past.
