WWE is in the process of transitioning their logo to the new WWE Network style logo. The transition has already happened for the WWE NXT title belt, the WWE Studios logo, in pay-per-views and on other WWE trademarked properties.

    Why take out the champion and make it more plain?

  • Tom Mayer

    John Cena really is Wonder Woman now.

  • Venom

    Where does it show CHAMPION gone? The belt is far away and you can’t see the details at the bottom. You know the title only looks like crap on TV. But in photos of the belt by itself it doesn’t look bad.

      Where does it show “champion” gone? In the first picture.

      • Venom

        I’m just saying that it’s a little grainy. I can only view the website on my phone as the website won’t work on my iPad. The photo is a little grainy and you can’t see if there is something written on the belt or not. The quality of the photo isn’t the best.

          It’s gone – it is a whole new front

          Richard gave you the old design to compare and you still can’t figure it out?

  • Splat

    Does it say $9.99 on it?

  • BlackLotus

    with the apparent “update” of the title, i hesitate to call it a Championship Belt. also in the first pic, the large side plates make the center plate look really small. im starting to believe that WWE doesnt know what they are doing with the belt designs. Its less “Championship” belt more “Commemorative” belt.

  • Bob’s Diner

    Maybe this is just a belt they’ll be giving away with Network subscriptions?

    Now you too can be the WWE World Heavyweight Network Champion…
    Only $9.99!

    • Venom

      Well the belt does look like it’s worth $9.99!

  • John

    The old WCW / World Heavyweight Championship belt looks way better and more respectable than the current WWE Championship. It looks like a toy belt!

  • Rob

    The belt still looks hideous. Need to go back to the drawing board.

  • Tim M

    They did discount both the WWE Title and the World Title by 20% on WWE Shop.

    “The transition has already happened for the WWE NXT title belt, the WWE Studios logo, in pay-per-views and on other WWE trademarked properties”

    And also the NXT Women’s Championship. I knew about the belt for a while and thought they were going to reveal it when the #WWETransformed mess happened. But, it looks like we’ll see it by Summerslam.

  • Michael

    the “champion” would be changed to “network” so it can be used to promote the network. lol

  • GOR

    old or new its still bland !
