The Importance Of The Hardcore Title

Hey guys, back with another blog after my Steve Blackman blog seemed to do pretty well (if you have read it, thank you) and obviously his later WWE career was based around the hardcore title so I decided my 2nd blog would be about that very thing.
Back in the day, I dont think the Hardcore Title was seen as an important title, until they took it away. Sure, it was a title that mid carders were given and challenged for, but back then they're were so many titles for mid carders, such as the intercontinental, european, and light heavyweight titles. Nowadays, its just the intercontinental and the U.S title that the mid carders have to battle for, and now they are using the after thoughts like Kofi Kingston & R- truth to go for the Tag Team titles. Make sense? Didn't think so.
If you look at the holders of the Intercontinental title within the last 5 years, compared to the talent that held the Hardcore title when it was active, it is so obvious that the talent in WWE has gone way downhill. To be able to put great wrestlers like Steve Blackman, Tazz & RVD in contention for the HC title just goes to the depth of the roster back then. Imagine if they reinstated it with the present day roster, guys like Zack Ryder, Alex Riley and even Hornswoggle would probably be in contention for it. I think it's off retired and we have the memories of yester-year. For a title that didnt mean much to a fan when it was around, we sure as hell miss it now, and the superstars that held it.
Would it be a good idea to reinstate the Hardcore title? What do you guys think?
Thanks for reading
