    Default Why have they kept the spinner belt?

    DAMN TYPO!

    This isn't a when are they gonna change the belt thread or anything like that, this is questioning WHY they haven't changed it? When Cena lost the US title they changed it back to the original design but with the WWE title when he lost it or loses it they always keep it as a spinner belt, is there any reason for this? Is it because eventually the belt is always gonna end up on Cena so they see no need to change it? Or do they think the design is that great that they have kept it for this long? To me the spinner belt always comes off as it being Cena's belt

    You know all those little kids who chant "LETS GO CENA!!!" at every event? They make their parents buy replica Spinner belts so they can pretend to be just like their hero John Cena.

    Boo-tista? How about Daniel Boo-ryan!

    They couldn't keep the Spinner US Title because JBL destroyed it.
    As far as why they've kept the WWE title as is its a great looking belt. It speaks for our time our era.
    They did stop it from spinning which is rather disappointing, but I'm glad the overall design hasn't changed.
    I'm just glad they didn't keep that abomination which was the Rated R belt. Such a monstrosity has no place in the PG era.

    But its not Cena who's holding the belt. He hasn't held it in over a year.

    It's still "his" belt and very much associated with him.

    CM Punk said on Monday that he loves the belt like people love their families. CM Punk loves the belt and what it represents, and apparently also loves the design. Otherwise he would have either changed it or requested the old design.

    Because John Cena is still around. And someone who holds the belt can say "The belt is lame and I'm gonna change it" and get people excited about it because Cena sucks or something...and it never comes and Cena gets the belt back again eventually.

    It's a perpetual work, brother.
    The IWC will never be happy unless Daniel Bryan wins both world titles, makes Batista tap out and makes HHH look like a total bitch in the process.

    Ness got it right with the very first reply and then Stefan hit the perfect footnote

    The time that the design changes is when Cena is no longer the top guy and kids aren't asking their parents to buy the spinner belt.

    I'm sick of the belt myself, but it will stay as long as Cena is the top (long term) face.

    It hasn't spun since No Mercy 2007

    If there is new belt (as rumoured around Raw 1000 last year) then I think they made the decision to wait for Rock to win it before introducing it.

    A shame because it would have made sense for Punk to have replaced it.

    I hope Rock doesn't.

    Then that damn "AND NOT A SINGLE FUCKING SPINNER!" picture will no longer be relevant.

    I hope when Rocky does win it, he comes out with the Spinner, turns it around and in giant white lettering on the back it has "Suitable for ages 6 to 12" and then throws it in the trash. Would be a funny skit.

    I feel like Punk is carrying a newer version of the Spinner belt -- it looks bigger and thinner on the depth of the title. I like the way it looks on CM Punk. I saw the new design to be honest I'd rather them keep the current design instead.



    To me it looks better than ever.

    I am dumbfounded by the fact that Punk didn't bring in a new belt. I really thought that it was coming during the "summer of Punk". I don't want the Rock to win the title Sunday, although I think he will and I really don't want him to be the one who introduces us to a new title belt. It's just too damn much attention being given to a part timer.

    However, I wont be surprised if that's how it goes down.

    Punk is carrying a newer version of the title so I don't think they are going to introduce a new title anytime soon. Maybe why they made the title lighter is to make it easier for Rock to carry it around and sling it over his head.

    I wish they'd replace the word "champ" with champion on it. That's my only gripe about it.

    It'd take 5 minutes to replace it.

    It wouldn't be a bad idea for business. Having it say "Champion" might force people to buy it again since it's a newer version of the belt.

    It looks like a piece of sh!t that Little Wayne would wear to the source awards to match his pimp cup. It's tasteless bling. Get a real title already. The World title looks legit. I know its a prop but it should still look legit. You don't see the guys on NCIS carrying around plastic guns with orange tips cause they are fake. The guns are fake but they look legit. Same should go for the WWE title. At least make it look like a real title belt! It's pathetic that the TNA title, as ridiculously oversized as it is, looks more like a title belt than the WWE title!

    If they put the word champion on the main plate, I would probably buy it. That's how much I like this belt. My favorite version ever is the Undisputed belt that Lesnar/Taker/Rock/Angle wore in 2002.

    While I don't like the belt, I don't agree that Punk should change it. You can't have a customized belt everytime someone else wins it, that's retarded. There has to be some consistency, albeit has to be with Cena's version.

    That was a damn good looking belt. I'd love for them to go back to that. I know the popular concensus seems to be for the "Winged Eagle" belt (by the way, what kind of fuct up eagle is not "winged"?) but I loved the Undisputed Championship belt.

    Nobody's saying it has to be a CM Punk belt. It shouldn't be specific to the guy who carries it. That belt is Cena's version of the title. It kind of made sense when he debuted it. It hasn't since. They need a WWE title belt. Not a Cena belt. At this point, the Smoking Skull Belt would make about as much sense for Punk to be carrying around.
