Update On Proposed Cody Rhodes vs. Goldust Match, WWE Title Praised By GQ

— Cody Rhodes’ inclusion in the SmackDown Elimination Chamber Match at Elimination Chamber squashes the proposed bout against Goldust at the pay-per-view event. Though the brother vs. brother bout could still take place at WrestleMania XXVIII, Vince McMahon was against the idea as recently as a few weeks ago.

GQ has named the WWE Championship one of the best sports trophies of all-time.

They wrote of the title: “When it comes to gaudy title belts, boxing has nothing on professional wrestling. Boxing’s look like something stolen from the uniform closet of a Third World dictator. WWE’s is modeled after the old-school solid-fake-gold title belt that Ric Flair used to rock. Wooo!!!”

— Jerry Lawler appears for Remix Pro Wrestling on April 7 at Marietta Middle School Gym 242 Seventh St. Marietta, Ohio. Visit for more information.

    I think Cody vs Goldust is a step backwards for Cody. I think the best WWE title is the attitude era belt.

  • bc mitchell

    The article clearly says Vince is opposed to the damn match.

    The WHC looks way better than the WWE title. The Winged Eagle was a good look but the flat version of it kinda sucked a bit

  • PinkSinCara

    They must have meant the World championship

    Modeled after the belt worn by Flair?
    Since when did Flair wear a god awful bling piece of shit?

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I am sure he wore the much better looking winged eagle design.
