U.S. belt

With all the hoopla surrounding the I.C. and U.S. title matches at Mania and with WWE supposedly trying to bring back some prestige to each, wouldn't it be a good time to make a new U.S. belt? Its been over 10 years since WWE brought it back and its been the same belt since day one. Ive always thought the design was horrible.

Just like they did with the I.C. belt, they should bring back the classic design, from the late 80's.

Great looking belt. Nice and shiny.

I like shiny things.

You're right.  I have the perfect design.

  1. Say what you want about the builds to the respective matches - I actually think they've been maybe the best builds for the show - but the IC and US titles are actually coming off as more important than they've been in a while.

  2. They should redesign the belts every few years anyway. And sooner for a character that is really over and wins the championship.

  3. I actually don't mind the current belt at all, but the WCW one was always one of my favourites.

  5. Guys stealing the IC title twice a week makes it seem important?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Well, they're stealing it because they want the actual IC title. At least it's about the title. Like I said, say what you want about the build, but at least it's about 7 guys wanting to be champion. Isn't that progress in some fashion?

    ReplyDelete
  7. I would say that multiple guys wanting to be IC Champion makes it seem important, yes.

  8. Perfect answer.

    But yes, all the belts are due for a redesign. The Lisa Frank Notebook Divas Belt has to go, as do the Roman pennies that the tag champs have.

    Personally, I'm in favor of following the IC title's lead and going retro for all of them.

  9. the IC title is perfect except for the white strap ... it drives me crazy but I grew up with Warrior, Perfect, Bret, Shawn, and Razor as IC champs.


    The US title should be the one Lex Luger had back in 89.

  10. Beats Orton kicking Cody's ass and not even wanting the belt?

    ReplyDelete
  11. I wasn't watching during the US title bling belt era, and I had no idea until very recently that such a thing had existed. I agree that the US belt is ugly.

  12. What is Brock's symbol for the side plates on the world belt? I see him so infrequently I really have no idea.

    ReplyDelete
  13. It got blown up with dynamite!

  14. They need to start saying it's just a phone call home to momma and then stealing the belts would be cool. But they aren't so it's not

  15. They're his logo thingy. I was hoping for a Jimmy John's logo.

  17. The retro designs were some of the most iconic and best designs.

    Bring back the black strap for the IC Title as well.

  19. I didn't remember until I watched the Mr. Wrestlemania set that HBK wore the white one. I only remembered it on Double J.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I must have missed that era entirely - I thought the image was a photoshop! O_o

    ReplyDelete
  21. I totally and utterly disagree with this. Occasional minor changes maybe, but the historical significance and nostalgia factor are hugely important to me. I love that the belt I grew up seeing around the waist of Warrior, Rude, Von Erich, Perfect and Hart is still being contested. That alone adds significance to me. If there's a great design I'd personally never change it.

    But that's just my opinion

    ReplyDelete
  22. I want Hulkamania era belts; all of them.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Jokes aside, it's his back tattoo beast skull thing.

    ReplyDelete
  24. No way, the white strap is unique and awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yeah, one of the few times I don't agree with Scott. Whether you're a fan of the story line or not the focus is on the belt, and it seems to mean something to everyone except Barrett because he keeps losing. No doubt they are just dangling a carrot in front of us because after tommorow it will be back to beating the champion to get a title shot because thats all they know how to build an ic title feud.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Seriously, what the hell has happened to Cena's hair over the years.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Goldust did too, I think

    ReplyDelete
  28. It should the Mother Russian Championship

    ReplyDelete
  29. If they wanted a cool us title the should base it off of the us tag belts.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I've seen Razor with the white one to but that may have been when he just won it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love coloured straps for belts. Warrior had a purple IC didn't he?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Totally agreed. I liked Lance Storm's Canadian title as well.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I don't mind the spinner US title and I'm sure Mattel would be happy to have a kid friendly replica to sell again. It's the second / third tier belt so who cares if it's something fun for kids?

  34. Soviet Heavyweight International Title

  35. I would love the original US title to make a comeback but I'm not opposed to the spinner belt when Cena wins lol, I actually liked it back then.

    ReplyDelete
  36. It'd be cool if Cena beats Rusev in the opener like he did Big Show for the US in the WM20 opener.

    ReplyDelete
  37. How would that be cool?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yes. I liked Major Gunn's shorts camel toe too

    ReplyDelete
  39. No sentence should have "cool" and "cena" in it. Ever

    ReplyDelete
  40. The stealing the belt angle is downright terrible

    ReplyDelete
  41. Yeah, I think the story has done more good than harm. After WrestleMania is key though--do all of these guys still want to be IC champ and sort of become part of an IC title division? Or do they all forget about it and go off doing random stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  42. You would say that. But you would be wrong

    ReplyDelete
  43. Progress? If you had a shit sandwich one day, but the next day only had half, would you consider that progress?
    You still had shit for breakfast

    ReplyDelete
  44. Watch Cena beat Rusev by countout and have a huge celebration afterwards. Then Rusev keeps the US title and we forget all talk about the secondary titles being elevated.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Holy shit! John Cena when his act was fresh!


    11 FUCKING YEARS AGO.

    ReplyDelete
  46. The problem isn't that everyone wants the title. The problem is that all of these guys are qualified to fight over it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Sick burn, bro.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm the only person that actually liked the spinning US title, aren't I?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Um. He's wearing a chain around his neck.

    Hm.

  50. Even more amazing was he was on good terms with the IWC. I think it was around here he busted out with "five moves of doom."

    Actually, no. I like it as well. I have a signed replica in my closet somewhere.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonMarch 28, 2015 at 8:51 PM

    It hated Cena as much as the IWC did and fell out in protest.

    ReplyDelete

    Better than the World title spinner.

  54. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonMarch 28, 2015 at 8:56 PM

    Or HHH's obsession with devaluing the title.

  56. Pretty sure you just became white.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Its a good way to start the show with some star power. Kick things off nicely, and some people would like to see Cena curtain jerking

    ReplyDelete
  58. somewhere in a vault in Titan Towers sits the crappy "World Title" belt they used at GAB'91, with western states heritage title with a plate stuck on the front


    the oblong shaped 1991 WCW six-man titles that Z-Man would always wear to the ring were pretty weak to

    ReplyDelete
  59. with special red leather straps

    ReplyDelete
  60. Apparently the Western States Heritage Title wasn't used on that occasion.

    ReplyDelete
  61. CruelConnectionNumber2March 29, 2015 at 2:49 AM

    It was a Florida title belt that Dusty brought to the show with a sticker put on it.

    ReplyDelete
  62. They'll probably make it *just* different enough so collectors have a new item to shell out hundreds of bucks for a replica of. : )

    ReplyDelete
  63. Gee golly, he was handsome then... cute hair. Then he became THE ENEMY~~!!!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  64. Yep elavating the secondary titles but shoving the Tag Titles onto the pre show.

    ReplyDelete
  65. The title looks great.
