BA: I love the idea idea of the TV Championship. When I first started watching wrestling on TV Johnny Valentine, the dad of Greg Valentine, had the TV Championship. I was so upset as I was growing up that little by little the TV Championship was gone. I would love to see the NXT WWE Network Championship and there should be a lineage with the TV Championship starting with Johnny Valentine.
