Not sure what you mean with "is it a problem if it's a non entity in North America" but if you mean, if it matters wheter the current champion is American or not, it doesn't really matter. Americans still fight for titles and Americans still watch the fights.
NO, I know who doesn't watch and its alot of north americans. I think its a problem when a large portion of the western hemisphere doesn't know or care about the HWT champion of the world .
I mean the HWT champion is virtually unknown in North America and when he fights very few people in North America watch.
I know this is a sore subject with you but I think we can only discuss this if you are willing to be honest about the current HWT division.
