Through the years, the WWE has done their best to make its main title appealing.
Overall, they have done a solid job at changing with the climate, that is, until the release of its current design "The Spinner."
Let's face it, at one time this was a pretty sweet design, and with John Cena as champ, it served a purpose. However, much like Cena, the design has become a bit stale.
Yet, here we are close to eight years later, and for some reason, the company continues to stand by the design. Thankfully, we live in a social media world, so fans can find out what WWE's talent feels about the company and some of its ideas.
On Tuesday, Paul Heyman took to Twitter to tout Punk and bury the title's design. Shortly after, WWE Hall of Famer "Stone Cold" Steve Austin concurred with Heyman's statement:
@heymanhustle Wow. Agreed.— Steve Austin (@steveaustinBSR) January 22, 2013
Ultimately, the company needs to change this design soon, especially considering we have been hearing about a rumored replacement for about a year now. Luckily for fans, it appears The Rock will be crowned WWE champ at the Royal Rumble, meaning the company could finally part ways with this design before February.
If the title does indeed change hands, it would be a perfect time to make the switch, especially considering there is no way "The People's Champ" will be rocking a title created for someone else. In the end, I guess we will have to wait and see if The Rock wins and whether a new title will debut on Raw.
