WWF Hardcore Title.

Fan perfectly explains the one reason the WWE should bring back the Hardcore title

Sometimes, it's easy to forget the WWE Hardcore championship was only around for just under four years.

WWE fans loved the chaos that came with the hardcore title and Vince McMahon, who saw what ECW were doing in Philadelphia, saw it as a way to give his audience a small slice of that extreme world.

The origin of the belt came back in 1998 when Vince McMahon simply awarded it to Mankind - a.k.a. Mick Foley - because he was known as the hardcore legend.

Plenty of brutal, spot-filled matched ensued with plenty of foreign objects to boot, but it wasn't until Crash Holly's 24/7 rule came into place in 2000 that the belt really got its worth.

Superstars tried to win the championship while Holly was sleeping, going through the airport and even when he was at an amusement park.

It led to some pretty hilarious segments and one WWE fan on Reddit has made a very valid point about bringing the popular title out of exile after 16 years.

Austinjbrunner said: "You know what needs to come back? Think about it. 24/7 defense in the age of social media? Would truly always be on the line."

He actually makes the perfect point and plenty of WWE fans agreed on Reddit, too.

With the WWE placing such a heavy emphasis on Twitter and even expanding to Facebook with the live Mixed Match Challenge, how cool would it be to see the hardcore title defended on those platforms?

A little five-minute match backstage or in some random locations would be really fun for the fans and would help the characters show who they truly are.

As one fan noted on Reddit, all it would need is a little 15-minute warning or something for the fans to check the Twitter or Facebook pages - that could be some great content indeed.

It would also give plenty of superstars something to do. Dean Ambrose probably seems the perfect Hardcore champion from a character perspective, but guys like Tye Dillinger, Breezango or even Apollo could benefit from the extra exposure.

Imagine Bray Wyatt as the Hardcore champion? That would make for some useful backdrops. Just no more House of Horror matches, please.
