Well, it appears that everyone that holds the WWE title from here on out will be able to have customizable side plates.
You may recall when the new title debuted over a month ago that The Rock had his signature Brahma Bull on the side plates.
Now, John Cena has done the same, this time his trademark You Can't See Me logo is emblazoned on the sides.
On Monday, the newly crowned WWE champ made the media rounds and took a picture with TV host Michelle Beadle. Beadle then took to Twitter with Cena and the new belt.

Does this belt make me look fat? @JohnCena in da house! I'm. Just. A. Smiling. Idiot. http://t.co/q6zgThOvBl4/8/2013, 5:08:53 PM
Overall, I can't say that I hate the idea of this. Especially considering, it's a better idea than having the spinner design. Ultimately, it allows each champion to put their own customization to the title, and each reign will give the title a fresh look.
Let's face it; far too many wrestlers wore John Cena's title during the spinner years, and it always seemed like those stars were just waiting to lose the strap to its rightful owner.
Now, anyone can seemingly hold this title and it won't feel like it belongs to its originator.
In the end, I am certain that Cena's design will definitely get some heat. However, you must remember that this is only a temporary addition to the title and once it changes hands, it will have yet another logo on the sides.
