Who is the U.S. Champion right now? ;)

The UK Championship was created for the UK guys though...they made the big thing about it during the tournament last year.

If they need a secondary title...bring in a TV title and be done with it.

Ok, fair enough. haha I haven't thought about the TV title in ages. WWE has never had a TV title have they? Just other places like WCW and TNA and RoH?

I don’t see why the UK title has to be exclusive to UK talent, sure the origin of the title will always be the tournament that just featured UK guys but that’s fine they can now move on from that. It’s good that they can always say the belt started its life in Blackpool through the tournament.

Naff idea, you should always be left wanting more not less. 2 hours means jobbers like Mojo Rawley and shit getting airtime every week.

With another title being added to the show, I would say it's looking more likely.

Last week so few guys got decent airtime, to say it's so close to the Takeover show.

Women's title picture brawled, as did the men's title picture and a newbie in Ricochet said one sentence.

Yeah I think their roster is deep enough at this point, but this is 1 week from WrestleMania. Call-ups are due, so revisiting this topic after call-ups are made might be the most appropriate.

Theyve got a really good roster at present and as Rico said above, call ups are due.

I still wouldnt imagine wed see more than a couple from each division moved up so that still leaves plenty of talent and storyline to easily fill 2 hours whilst still maintaining the high level match quality

I can see this happening now and moving to a network on a tuesday night to fill the gap of Smackdown changing channels.

More chance for character development on the show and E make more money by getting another brand on normal TV.

The money made from that can be put into brand new network original content to make up for NXT being taken off there.

I agree and I would love this. NXT was initially on TV on Tuesdays replacing ECW's slot before they moved to the internet on WWE.com and later the WWE Network. WWE should give NXT a television show; and I'd love it to be two hours. 

But no change in how it's run of course.

Agree with ya pal. I don't see who would lose from if it happened........

Wrestler: More chance to develop character and be seen. Also with a NXT UK looking like getting close, I would put the original NXT to two hours so it's still seen as the main NXT instead of same time as a newbie. They would be better off being seen on TV every week instead of just to those Network subscribers.

E: More money for shareholders from the millions it would bring in. I'm sure they could find a network that would want to air a two hour NXT show every tuesday night. Maybe if a network wants it to go live that could be the deal breaker.

Fans: We get the current Smackdown slot filled and hopefully the money made will give a much needed increase in brand new content to the struggling network.
