Not everyone is complaining about the new design. In fact, there are some differences from this and the spinner belt that people are very enthusiastic about.
The most obvious is the fact that it doesn't spin.This logo is stationary and I'm assuming will remain so even after John Cena inevitably holds it in the future. The spinner feature hasn't been active for some time, but as we all know, wrestling fans never forget.
Another positive is that the rhinestones are gone. The bejeweled look contributed to the cheapness of the old belt similar to when you get something sparkly out of a vending machine at a supermarket.
One particular change I want to commend them on (and more importantly, retroactively berate them for not having in the past) is how the belt now says "champion" as opposed to "champ". That has always irked me and we finally have a design that contains the full word.
While some are complaining that the title belt is too generic, others are fond of that after seeing the over-the-top spinner belt.
What are your thoughts on the new title belt design? Do you think WWE has stepped up from the spinner belt or do you think this is an even worse belt? What other positives and negatives do you think about the title? Leave your comments below.
