That might be the better move. They don’t mean as much as they did before, but titles are still something that carry a lot of value in wrestling. They drive a majority of storylines forward in one way or another and that is the kind of thing that a wrestling company can always use. Titles have been a big deal for a long time now and they aren’t going away. A proposed change to one of them might be going away though.

The Women’s Revolution has changed the way wrestling works in WWE and that is not going to be reversed. Women’s wrestling has gone from an afterthought to one of the focal points of the show a lot of the time, with women running out of first time events in a hurry. The Women’s Titles have become valuable, but one of them nearly underwent a change that did not make the most sense.

Earlier this month, rumors began to pop up about NXT changing the name of the NXT Women’s Title to just the NXT Title. The change started to go somewhere with the “women’s” moniker being removed from some graphics including NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley. This week on NXT, the full version of the name was back with no reference to the new name. It is not known if WWE will attempt to make the change again in the future, or if they will change the current NXT Title’s name in any way.

The title was a focal point of this week’s show. Check out what the whole thing is about:

Opinion: While I can appreciate the idea behind such a change, this wasn’t something that was going to work. Unless the NXT Title currently held by Adam Cole is changed to something else, changing the name to the NXT Title would just be confusing. If you want to make some sort of change then fine, but come up with something that isn’t going to make things hard to follow.
