Now when Brock won the title I was one of the biggest supporters of Brock winning the World Title back at Summerslam and not being there every week, because I had the Old School perspective on things and thought and still do think that the World Champion shouldn't be featured every week and should be thought of as special. But not having the World Champion on the show for months at a time isn't good for the championship or the guy holding it. I think every expected this when Brock won the belt, but I think they should have worked on getting Brock some more appearances when he won the title so he was seen more often.
However, they are just focused on keeping Brock happy even though it is very likely that Brock will be leaving in March after Mania 31 so they should use that as a reason for Brock do them a favor and work more as a champion. Fact is that because Brock and Heyman haven't appeared on TV since after Night of Champions which is hurting Brock's momentum and the importance of the World Title. But also it somewhat helps the tile because it is making people want Brock to lose the title more considering they want to see the champion so if anything people are looking forward to Brock loosing the title more considering he is never there. Below is an excerpt from an article written about the topic:
"It’s easy to see why WWE made the call to put the belt on Lesnar at Summerslam. He was—and still is—a great monster heel. He was also the man who destroyed The Undertaker’s legendary streak at Wrestlemania 30, practically guaranteeing WWE had to continue pushing him to the moon. WWE undoubtedly felt Paul Heyman would be an appropriate replacement for his client on Raw and Smackdown. With Heyman around to do the talking, you surely wouldn’t need the former MMA fighter on television every single week. Alas, three months on from Lesnar’s title victory, it’s clear the writers made an egregious error in putting the belt on him." For the full article, please visit:
