- As noted before, WWE officials still aren't sure what to do with the ECW Title. While ECW is going away, the belt may be kept around in some way. Some within WWE are lobbying for the belt to be kept around but the final decision will be Vince McMahon's. Those in favor of keeping the belt feel that it can still be used as an attraction for secondary pay-per-view undercards.
 
i did'nt see any use for the belt when the brand was reborn and still dont see any use of it right now. keeping the belt as a secondary pay-per-view undercards? that's what the intercontinental and united states titles are for. =.=

I like the idea of keeping the title around - kind of keeps the memory of ECW alive without WWE having to run a second rate show trying to pass itself off as ECW.

Would be good if WWE introduce a ruling where the title must always be defended under extreme-rules, effectively making it the new hardcore title of sorts.

I can see them retiring the title and perhaps creating a NXT Championship. The title is about on the same level as an IC or US title anymore so I just don't see a point in keeping it around.

I would like to see them keep it around BUT on the debut NXT show have Christian Cage come out and declare that the ECW title would now be renamed the NXT title instead. That way, Christian could still be the ECW/NXT champion and he would make a good ambassador for the NXT brand.

While I actually like the silver phoenix design... it doesn't make a lick of sense to keep an ECW title around without any ECW. 
 
How about they change the US title back to the WCW US title?  Or maybe rename the Divas championship the AWA Women's Championship?  Maybe bring back the Smokey Mountains Tag Team championship?

No, no, no. There would be too many backlashes based on this not being such-and-such promotion. I say put Christian on Smackdown and declare that the ECW title will be merged into the World Heavyweight Championship with a unification match at Backlash, essentially turning the ECW strap into a #1 contender's belt for a last huzzah. Then, assuming Jericho wins the chamber and Edge beats him at Mania, I think we can see Edge v. Christian at Backlash with the lead being "old friends tugging for gold one more time". I know, I know, world title foes and tag team partnerships don't usually make sense to gel, but in this case it can actually be done. Just establish mutual respect between E and C, then have some two-man combination of Jericho/Punk/Batista interrupt and try to put them down only to end up with a tag team match against them. Of course you know who's gonna win, but maybe it should have a bit of a testy finish along the way involving staredowns and averted accident disasters on the part of Edge and Christian just to build up the tension.

The problem is that WWE doesn't treat the ECW Championship as a "World" title any longer.  (I'll cite Christian's appearance on Raw as my source for WWE's disrepect of that championship.)  My money would be on a the title merging with the IC championship.  Of course, I'd like to see Christian as the IC champ on SD with Edge.
 
Christian could then mull around for a bit... build some tension.  E&C could reunite against some common foe, like the Straight Edge Society.  Edge as WHC and Christian as IC.  A nice slow heel turn for Christian.  Helping his friend Edge, watching other guys get that title shot.  And then by SummerSlam, Christian could turn on his BFF Edge.

I see them retiring the title it's no point of keeping an ECW title on a show that no longer exists.  Christian will FINALLY be move to Raw or Smackdown to be a WWE guy once again. The thing is will he be elevated or buried ?
Trags for HOF'er !

Like I said before, how about have Christian come out and declare the title no longer the ECW championship, instead its now known as the NXT championship? And have Christian still reign as champion for that brand until someone beats him... But again no one would like that because it would leave the beloved Christian, who everyone cums there pants for, on the C-brand for a little longer.
 
I like Thundarr's idea of having the ECW title unified into the IC championship, especially since history shows that the Europeon and Hardcore title felt the same fate.

Well, I think you scrap it because no one cares anyway. For god sakes, you cancelled ECW for a reality show. That's how little people cared.
