WWE.com Article Calls For A Redesign Of The WWE Title; CM Punk & The Miz Give Their Thoughts

The official WWE website has posted an article which calls for a redesign of the “spinner” WWE Championship belt. The article, which explores possibilities of replacements for the championship belt, also features the opinions of CM Punk, John Cena, and The Miz. Punk had the following to say on whether he is in favor of changing the belt:

“YES! [The current title] is old and passé. It’s gaudy and ugly. It says ‘Champ’ instead of Champion! That’s ridiculous. I need a dignified title, not a blinged out rapper accessory.”

John Cena’s comments have been previously posted, and The Miz had the following to say on the subject:

“Well, you saw my effort to redesign the current title. But, I’d agree it needs to look less like a toy and more like a title. I mean, think about it. When football players win the Super Bowl or basketball players win the NBA finals, you’ll usually see one of the players sporting a championship from WWE. But, it’s always the World Heavyweight Title. It doesn’t take that much to figure out why that is.”

    It goes without saying the title needs to be changed. When the guy who brought the title in, thinks it needs to be changed you know it has worn out its welcome. The perfect time to change the title would have been when Punk came back after leaving. It would have been beyond awesome to see punk with the attitude era belt against Cena with the current belt.

    Change it back to the undisputed belt:D

    • Ranveer

      yup the undisputed belt which later became the wwe championship was really beautiful and looked like a belt to die for…. unfortunately once JBL lost it to cena at WM 21 we haven't seen it again!

    • Chris

      I'd love that, Thought it looked great when guys like Lesnar, Eddie and JBL were carrying it!

    It's sad how true Miz's comments are about the NBA or NFL. I mean, if the WWE title is so prestigious and RAW is the "A" show, then why is it that the one Aaron Rodgers wears the one that represents the "B" show?

      The key to what the Miz said is.. EVERYWORD rings so true!!! The gold belt (The World Title) is the most prestigious belt in ALL of wrestling, no matter how WWE tries to put over the WWE title. That is the belt that should have stayed on Raw when Bischoff first brought it back & gave it to Triple H. So, everybody join me in giving a big FU to John Cena for introducing that dumba** Spinner belt in the first place. The only one to ever change the look of a world title for the better was Steve Austin & the Smoking Skulls Belt..

  • Alex

    I'm glad that this seem to be finally discussed in the WWE. The spinner belts has worn out it's welcome. You can still always sell it online for all the little kids.

    • Chris

      Good point, they keep selling 'Retro' shirts, so why not keep it on WWEShop as a 'Retro' title

  • Aaron

    You have a point there hurrigame

  • Patrick_Peralta

    You made a good point Alex..WWE can allways sell the Spinner Belt to the kids since it sells so well among them and that was the reason WWE didn't wish to redesign it. but the Title that CM Punk holds does need a new design.

    Austin's Belt the Smoking Skull Belt was allways my Favorite. with the Spinner Belt being number 2.

  • Stan smith

    I always felt the spinner belt should have been a John Cena exclusive like the smoking skulls belt was for Austin and the rated R spinner was for Edge.

  • Michael

    To be fair, you cant call it a "SPINNER BELT" now. The belt does not even spin anymore. The Winged Eagle or WWF new generation belt was always my favorite.

    What worries me is exactly what WWE will come up with. If oth the Diva's title and Tag Team Titles are the best the WWE art department can come up with; they would be better off giving my daughter a box of Crayola and asking her to come up with one.

  • spike westphal

    even smackdown's world heveyweight championship title belt is better than the current wwe championship belt

  • drhaase

    bring back the 1990'a eagle belt. easily the best WWE Championship Belt ever

  • Matt

    Just at least change it back to the Winged Eagle belt or the Undisputed Championship design

  • Van

    I think they should've went back to the old one after Edge beat Cena back in 2006

    " When football players win the Super Bowl or basketball players win the NBA finals, you’ll usually see one of the players sporting a championship from WWE. But, it’s always the World Heavyweight Title. It doesn’t take that much to figure out why that is.”

    Not true. The Dallas Mavs had a custom spinner title with the Mavs logo in the middle.

    title needs to be completely revamped with a classic style but not copying an already done design something new
