After eight long years, the WWE has finally retired "The Spinner" design as its main title.
Ultimately, this has been a long time coming and who better to debut the new look championship belt than The Rock. Overall, the design isn't entirely different from its predecessor. Unfortunately, the company decided to have The Rock's Brahma Bull logo on either side of the title.
On a side note, the unveiling appeared to have a lackluster response from fans in attendance at the Cajun Dome. Which says a lot considering many fans have been praying for a new look for some time now.
Personally, I don't get why The Rock's logo is emblazoned on the sides. Especially considering he may only be champion for another month. The fact is we very well could see a new WWE champion after WrestleMania 29.
So one has to wonder if the company has decided to give The Rock a longer run with the gold. Let's face it, only a handful of people truly know what "The People's Champion" will be doing post 'Mania. According to his IMDB page, he has several movies slated for release in 2013, two of which are probably going to be huge blockbusters.
Which makes me wonder how much time The Rock can devote to the WWE?
Don't get me wrong here; I am not blasting The Rock. The man did the WWE a great service by returning to the company in 2011. Since then he has managed to appear as often as his schedule allots in order to give back to the business that made him.
In the end, I am grateful that the WWE has come to its senses and unveiled a new title. Ultimately, "The Spinner" served its purpose and it is time for a new era to reign.
