Yeah I know what you mean, I just see an opportunity for it to possibly happen because there are some guys who might be able to hang with them soon. It won't really matter if the torch is passed or not, it'd just be nice because the consensus about the HW division has become so cynical over the years that it's seems like it will be tough for others to be recognized, even dominant champs like the Klits take their share of sh*T and criticism for not being as good as their predecessors.
I just want the next champs to get their shine because I do think there are some evenly matched action fights once ppl start to mix it up.
