Tonight’s WWE Tapings, WWE Doing Away with Spinner Title Belt?, More

– After going on sale yesterday, WWE has reportedly sold out of the VIP WrestleMania 28 travel packages. Silver, Gold and Platinum packages are still available.

– Todd Grisham wrote the following on Twitter last night, which just may be a joke on all of the recent buzz: “This just in…Triple H’s first act as new WWE Chairman is to reinstate WWE Ice Cream Bars.”

– WWE will tape NXT and SmackDown tonight from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. TV matches for SmackDown include Randy Orton vs. Kane in a Street Fight and Cody Rhodes vs. Ezekiel Jackson for the Intercontinental Title. On tonight’s NXT, it’s expected that the field of Rookies will be cut down to 2. Currently on the show is Titus O’Neil, Darren Young and Derrick Bateman.

– Several ideas have been thrown around WWE in regards to the CM Punk storyline. One of the ideas being thrown around is to use this as a way to finally get rid of the spinner WWE Title belt.

    The Undisputed belt is the shit. It was awesome, I think… And the Attitude belt was great, too. The Spinner is fucking ugly, really. Just because all the kids wanted a toy belt of John Cena they keep it… But is about time.

    @finallythekingjoinsin. But dont forget that when Brock refused to defend the title on both shows, the World title was re-activated, thus it has been around longer than the spinner belt.
    Also, the IC title and US title predate it as well.
    Only the Diva and Tag belts are newer than that god awful spinner belt.
    I think the only spinner belt that was passable was the rated R one, but only cause it was funny.

    the reason they have 2 titles is because the roster is so big.

    if they had one belt. it would be cena vs orton. all year long.

    you could have guarenteed cm punk wouldnt be a world champion. which is bad.

    on the plus side, jack swagger would never have been a world champion.

    Thank You, that belt was a toy it wasn’t a true belt. I argee with this tourment but the winner faces Christian to become undisputed champion. No reason we need two major belt.


    They should of changed it back when cena first lost the title.

    @Teran, you mean the Attitude Era Belt? In the words of a man who held that belt, “Gimme a hell yeah!”

  • Teran

    Bring back the WWF belt lol.

  • edo.risk

    Any belt is better than the spinner!

  • efes

    I’d look forward to a new belt (yeah, belt) as long as they spend more time on designing it compared to the awful Tag and Diva title belts. Hell, I’d be happy for them just to go back to what it looked like before the Spinner.

    Funny thing is is that its been around longer than others n recent memory. the undisputed title was around from triple h to brock 2001 to 2002. Jericho was the first undisputed champ but i believe it was hhh that made it a singular belt. Brock made it the wwe title when he took it to smackdown n 2002. In 2005, Cena won the title an made it a spinner belt. Been that way for 6 years.

    Yep I agree, the belt need to be gone. it is ugly and needs to be replaced!

    It’s about damn time. That belt was played out way too long.
