    I don't really care, but why design the title as a belt if it's not going to be worn around the champion's waist... like a belt?

    I prefer to see it around the waist. It's a championship, wear it with pride, don't just toss it over your shoulder. I know it's not a big thing but it is one that irks me, especially when i'd see Austin dragging the bottom bit along the ground.

    It doesn't really matter to me how a wrestler wears it. However, if I had to pick one, I would rather a wrestler wear it around their waist.

    It's doesn't change a match, promo, or segment so it doesn't matter to me in which way a champion wears the belt.

    Around the waist. Guys draping it over their shoulder was always a pet peeve of mine. Dragging the belt is worst of all.

    I prefer seeing it around the waist because, as Pi mentioned, it's a belt. It also makes more sense if you're walking around or doing anything because you have both hands free to do whatever. The only situation where having it off your waist and over your shoulder makes more sense is when you're about to hit someone with it.

    I don't care which way they hold it, but I don't like it when it's tossed around or dropped carelessly. They all do it at some point, but the most frequent example is Cena tossing it forward into the ring before he slides in. I'm just waiting for the day when it slides all the way across the ring and off of the other end.

    Does it matter? They don't wear pants. What are they holding up? Their fruit of the looms? Kidding aside, it depends on the wrestler. Undertaker always looks ok with it on his waist, Macho man it looks great on the waist, Cena it looks kinda stupid cause he wears it loose. It does look strange when they're in their tights wearing on their waist, though.

    Walking down to the ring wear it. Talking in promos have it over the shoulder. Just my preferences.

    I don't care if a wrestler wears their title around the waist or on the shoulder. That's just a bit trivial to me.

    I'm a fan of both but you have to mix it up. Over the shoulder seems lazy but sometimes the champ has to be relaxed too.

    Hi all.

    How many Boxers wear their title over their shoulder. I always see a Boxer wearing their title around the waist. I think wearing it around the waist shows the title some type of respect; respect for the title, and the profession of Wrestling. I do not like seeing a belt displayed or used in a disrespectful manner. Part of the reason we have this issue is Vince has tried take the sport out of the WWE, and make it all about entertainment. I for one liked it when the element of sport was a large part of the WWF/WWE; I remember when match results were reported during sports segments of local news programs. Also when ESPN aired Wrestling there was a sports atmosphere about Wrestling. Champions should wear their titles and rings appropriately.

    A Boxer enters the ring wearing his robe with title underneath. During any public event they are wearing the title around the waist.

    In some events the Referee will secure the belt around the winners waist before he leaves the ring.

    Just my thoughts.

    Easily this. Over the shoulder during a promo allows the belt to be in shot at the same time. Seems quite obvious.

    Obviously the most respectful thing is to have them flapping around like they're your dick:

    Bingo.

    I like both, so I get the best of each with that solution. Not a fan of Austin/Rock dragging it to the ring and Cena wearing it loose as others have mentioned.

    I actually like what The Rock does as he enters the ring with his one-armed raised pose with the belt aloft on the turnbuckle as it's a cool visual, I just don't like the lead up. Bret's was pretty cool as well when he was wearing the full on military jackets and it was covering the belt as he entered the ring and then as he would go on to do his in ring poses he would unzip his jacket and quickly flash the belt round his waist as he's doing his poses.

    Man, I love the small details of Pro Wrestling.

    About Cena throwing the belt around, I hate that, on Raw he threw it down on the table to Maddox and it fell on the floor, no respect for the gold.

    Other than that, I don't really have a problem with how a champion may carry his belt. I remember Undertaker used to wear his titles on his neck when he was a biker. Bubba Dudley did that too.

    Bubba was too fat for the title. He always was with every title he's ever had if I remember correctly. He's a big guy. Taker did it because he can do whatever he wants.

    Depends on the character and situation. I like creativity like Dolph wearing it backwards to start his entrance, Taker wearing it around his neck while driving his bike, MNM having them hang out of their pants, etc.

    I used to LOVE the way Razor Ramon put on the IC title, backwards then spin it around to the front.

    I think a champion should always wear his or her belt to the ring especially before a match and even more so when they're defending said belt.

    I get the shoulder thing. It's informal and laid back so I can see it as ok for promos.

    When Hulk took the belt off his waist it was about to get serious. Compare it to Cena taking his shirt off if you must.
