the big gold died once it became the smackdown title
I expected the first response to be about it being dead when Arquette became Champ.
I’ll compromise and say it died when the Brand Split did, as it became a better-booked version of the IC Title used in the RAW mid-card.

That they did. It now rests in peace for the second time, or third if you count the period between Flair leaving the NWA with it and them crowning a new Champ 11 months later.
