WWE: 5 Worst Looking Championship Belts in History
Since its inception in 1979, the WWE has created some Championship Titles that make wrestling fans wonder if these designers ever been to or even watched a wrestling match.
Here is a short list of the top five worst looking championship belts in WWE history, starting from No. 5 to No. 1.
5.) WWE Light Heavyweight Title (1997 – 2001)
This title was first introduced in 1997 to establish a new division during the Attitude Era in the WWE. An Eight Man-Single Elimination Tournament was held on RAW Is War for over a month, and the “lucky” recipient of this new title was crowned at WWE: In Your House: Degeneration X.
This title is just too plain and is not fitting to be around the waist of a new WWE Light Heavyweight Champion.
4.) WWE Unified Tag Team Titles (2010 – Present)
These titles were established in 2010, when the WWE decommissioned the World Tag Team Titles in favour of continuing the lineage of the WWE Tag Team Championship. When most wrestling fans think of “Tag Team Gold,” these titles don’t come to mind. These look more like “Tag Team Copper.”
The Roman centurion heads on the center plate are about the only thing that saves these titles from ending up in the No. 1 spot.
3.) WWE Custom United States Title (2004 - 2007 )
This title was introduced at WWE Armageddon 2004, and wrestling fans can thank none other than John Cena for this custom WWE United States Title. As part of his gangster rapper persona, the WWE decided to create a title that fit that gimmick to a “T”.
It was embedded with too many diamonds to count, and it also boasted Cena’s trademark “Word Life” catchphrase. This title was an insult to past United States Champions like Harley Race and Ric Flair, and was laid to rest when Cena ditched the “Doctor of Thuganomics” persona.
2.) WWE Custom Spinner Title (2005 – Present)
This title was established in 2005, and once again, wrestling fans can thank Super Cena for its existence. Even though Cena’s character was evolving into the much different persona he is today, the WWE decided to create this title.
The WWE logo in the center of the title actually spun in the first version, but it changed that feature in future belt designs. Rumors are circulating that a new WWE title is in the works. Hopefully this will come to pass.
Now, the No. 1 Worst Looking WWE Championship Title In History…
1.) WWE Divas Title (2008 – Present)
This title was first introduced in 2008 by former WWE Smackdown General Manager Vickie Guerrero. It was brought in as a neon pink alternative to the WWE Women's Title, which was the current title at that time.
On Aug. 30, 2010, the WWE in its infinite wisdom, decided to unify this title with the WWE women's title at Night of Champions. It is now the primary title for the women’s division, and wrestling fans have to bear the pain of staring at it every single week.
