Great WWE wrestlers win championships.
Whilst this isn't always the case - Jake Roberts, Dusty Rhodes, Jim Duggan etc. - in the modern era where title changes happen more frequently, there aren't many great WWE wrestlers who retire without a championship run.
A title run can push a superstar to higher positions on the card, put them in more high profile matches and legitimise them within storyline as credible fighters.

Whilst a championship run isn't always needed to boost a superstar's career, there are some wrestlers on the main roster who would definitely benefit from winning a title.
Gravity isn't the only thing that's forgotten Neville, as the former NXT Champion is struggling hard on the main roster. After finding himself close to winning both King Of The Ring and Money In The Bank shortly after his main roster debut, the Newcastle native is now nowhere to be seen most Monday and Thursday nights.
When you compare Neville to another former NXT Champion who made the jump to the main roster, Kevin Owens, you can clearly see where the creative team went wrong. Owens was thrust into a high profile feud and then won a championship shortly after. Now, he's one of the biggest stars in the company and is looking set to defend the prestigious Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania.
If Neville had been given a championship run early on in his main roster career, then I strongly believe he would still be relevant today. Whether it's too late to save Neville, I don't know, but I think a lengthy title run, or, at least, a high-profile championship feud, would be a good way to start. Sadly now, he is out injured and it is going to be a while before we see him again.
THE WYATT FAMILY
Whilst many have been crying out for Bray Wyatt to get his hands on some gold for a while now, I'm going one step further. The only Wyatt family member to win a championship thus far has been Luke Harper, whose Intercontinental Championship reign in late 2014 was far too short for many fans of the athletic big man.
However, this came during a period of separation from The Wyatt Family. Now that the group is back together, championship runs for each member would be a great idea. The Wyatts talk a lot of talk but they never seem to back it up, often losing pay-per-view matches and failing to win big feuds.
If the stable were all to hold championships or even just Harper, Strowman and Rowan whilst Bray commanded his troops from the sidelines, then it would go a long way to giving the group some much-needed credibility.
The Wyatt Family gimmick has the potential to take the WWE by storm, but they need to be perceived as a serious threat to do this. Taking out top stars and claiming their championships would certainly do this and I think there's still time for this to happen before the Wyatts become stale and fade away.
There are plenty of WWE Divas who could benefit from a championship run. However, with Sasha Banks now a face, Nikki Bella out of action and no other women really in the title picture as of now, the division needs one thing - top heels.
Naomi can definitely be one these; she is a phenomenal athlete, she works much, much better as a heel, and she has the classic heel enforcer in Tamina. If WWE wants to diversify their women's division, then giving Naomi the belt would definitely be a good idea.
Following Mania, Naomi could emerge as a new challenger and, maybe with some outside interference, win the gold. With Sasha Banks expected to walk away with the title at Mania, Naomi defeating her would draw huge heat, seeing as how popular Sasha is, and cement her as one of the top heels, and indeed top performers, in the division.
Naomi is grossly under-rated and a title win could finally see her transition into the top tier athlete she deserves to be.
