The Rock unveiled WWE’s new championship belt at the end of Raw last night and it, of course, was met with a mixed reaction. The new belt features Brahma bull side plates but the belt currently available through WWEShop.com (in the photo below) shows WWE logo plates, meaning that each champion will likely have their own custom side plates.
As I tweeted last night, I think what I don’t like about the new belt design is that there is no center plate behind the WWE logo, it’s just on the leather. The Rock’s custom side plates also make it look less like a championship and more like a fan made belt.
As time goes on, though, we’ll see if it grows on us. I personally didn’t hate the spinner belt but was hoping for more of a Winged Eagle-inspired strap, especially after The Rock said he thought the belt should be an homage to Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart and Steve Austin.
