It’s been reported for months that WWE is in the process of making a new championship belt that will replace CM Punk’s current “spinner” belt.
Punk confirmed in a recent interview that the belt will debut very soon. He speculated it could debut as early as WWE SummerSlam (it didn’t) or by next month’s Night of Champions pay-per-view.
To update this situation, we can report that Rick Petko from Orange County Choppers, which is featured on The Discovery Channel’s American Chopper television series, is helping with the creation of the belt.
He tweeted on Wednesday afternoon that he is currently, “Annealing aluminum for a WWE Championship belt.”
