Cody Rhodes Says He Paid to Have WWE’s White Intercontinental Title Belt Brought Back

– In a new interview with Chad Dukes, Cody Rhodes noted that he paid to have the white Intercontinental Title, currently held by Big E Langston, brought back. He said:

“You have no idea how difficult that was to get the IC Title, the white IC Title, which Big E Langston is now our new Intercontinental Champion and that was such a cool thing for him, to see that and see it still around. It makes me feel happy because that was such a pain to get done. Not many people know this; I paid for the title to be recreated. I was refunded, heavily refunded, but I paid to show it to the man and say, “Listen, this will get a reaction, that you might not think it will and here’s why,” you know? And I’m very happy to see it still in existence.”

    If you read it again, WWE didnt make him do anything. He petitioned to get the belt to go back to white, they denied him. He had the belt made to prove a point then they agreed and paid him the money back.
    WWE didnt ask him to do anything. Cody just had a point to prove and it shows that showing some initiative like Cody did, can often get the upper management to sit up and listen.

    The WWE Championship looks pretty cool tbh. The Divas Championship needs to go :l Bring back the Womens Championship!! So does the US Title in favor of a newly designed WWE Cruiserweight Championship!!

    Introducing at this time standing over 5 ft 6 weighing in at 140lbs from Calgory Alberta Canada, he is the WWEs Anti-Superstar, the Worlds Most Hated, the bitchiest, the whiniest, the crybaby and gangster wannabeist, its Justiiiiiin ‘The Skinny Bellend’ Beiibeerrrrr!!!

  • The white belt is fine, though personally I thought the previous IC title that had been around for over a decade looked just fine as well.

  • Agreed, the tag belts look like garbage. Then again, so does the WWE Championship and Divas belt, so……

    Wow, pretty sad that WWE made Cody fund the belt, just pathetic. Glad he kept pushing for the classic belt though, probably my favorite belt and am glad to have it back.
