A few questions...


WWE

None of these relate, however. But I would just like to know...

 

Whatever happened to Taka Miscinoku? (I don't remember how to spell his name since I was only young then and it's a Japanese name...) and I remember him "vanishing" about RR 2000-KOTR 2000 time... well this wasn't going to be a question, but does anybody remember Funaki's mouth moving a lot before it says... "Indeed!"? :lol

 

Why did the WWE get rid of the Hardcore Title a few years ago?

 

And, even though the Women's Title has been back for years now, what was the meaning of it's "disapearance"?

TAKA Michinoku did not renew his contract, feeling he had been buried in the WWE. He returned to Japan, mainly working for the Michinoku Dojo promotion and rebuilding his career. The "dubbed" gimmick lasted quite a few months on Heat, actually.

 

The Hardcore title was dumped because it sucks and devalues gimmick matches, which WWE is trying to make important again.

 

The Women's Title 'disappeared' because Chyna left the WWF without dropping the belt, so they left it for a while then declared it vacant and had a match to crown a new champ at Survivor Series 2001. Trish won, winning her first Women's belt in the process.

The Hardcore title was actually dropped because the WWE wanted to limit their titles, hence the European, Hardcore and Intercontinental all went at around about the same time. Although it did indeed suck, and they did want to limit the amount of hardcore matches to make them mean something again. So there is truth to it.

 

The womens title, as BTN said, disappeared because Chyna wanted a payrise and a main event slot. That was denied, and she walked out/contract wasn't renewed. I actually can't remember who Stephanie McMahon beat for the title in 2000. It was originally brought back in 1998 by Sable and Jacqueline, and was going to be the catalyst for an all-womens wrestling show on UPN spearheaded by Sable. Sable left, Tori, Debra, Ivory and co banded the title around a bit, and somehow, Steph got her hands on it, but I can't rmeember how.
