Video: CM Punk Reveals Plans for a New WWE Title Belt and More

Posted by Matt Boone June 4, 2012 14 Comments

WWE Champion CM Punk was at the Philadelphia Comic Con event over the weekend and participated in a Q&A session. CM Punk was asked about the possibility of WWE retiring the “spinner” belt and introducing a new WWE Championship belt. Punk confirmed that not only are there plans to replace the spinner belt – but the new belt already exists:

“I email people that you people don’t know exist and I bother them constantly about this damn thing. There is a new title. I’ve seen it. I’ll probably get in trouble for saying it, but I don’t think it’s any better than the current one.”

“It’s better than [the spinner belt]. They literally just made it. It’s about 20 pounds heavier than this one. I keep preaching that I want to be the guy – if I’m not the guy who doesn’t produce a new title, then I’ll be a liar, and I don’t want to be a liar. It’s out there, and it’s coming soon. Probably a lot sooner than the ice cream bars.

Punk also discussed the current state of WWE’s roster, Eddie Guerrero, Steve Austin wrestling again, The Rock’s return to WWE and more.

Punk’s comments about the spinner belt can be seen around the 34-minute mark:

      • Cena Rules

        so is your middle name..

        • Mark Henry

          Travis has so much repressed anger towards his middle name that he takes it out on the spinner belt. Cena Rules, u must be psychologist. Your work is appreciated, +1 for u.

        • some dude

          his name is gay because he doesnt like the spinner belt?? i guess my name is gay as well because that belt looks like s.h.i.t

      its about time i mean this is the longest we’ve had to look at this i sore i personally miss the 2000 – 2002 wwe title there is no point of putting this bling bling sideshow on other wwe superstars because it has nothing to do w them it looked stupid on triple h it looked dumb on jeff hardy and absolutely ridiculous on orton and for what punk is trying to do it takes away from taking him seriously but personally i dont see the point of making a new title if there is no prestige for it i mean if its not the main event then whats the point …c’mon wwe !!

      About time they change that horrible title. If they’re not going to return it to the winged eagle belt then I’m glad they’re at least changing this current spinner belt.

    • CM Punk

      Of course Eddie Guerrero will be wrestling again. He’s like Tupac and Elvis, he’s not really dead.

      • pro bb

        Since you dont know how to read it says Eddie Guerrero,coma steve austin wrestling again coma there is seperation between the two topics

    • Jim

      Cm Punk is the man. I wanna see him and Austin wrestle. They both need to make it happen.

      The spinner belt only looks good on cena. But even cena himself said its time for a new belt. Only problem is that the spinner belt merchandise is still selling well and there’s not much a point to replace the belt in terms of merchandise sales.
      I want to see that new belt. They are probably gonna do a stipulation match where if one wrestler wins, then new belt comes out. Or something stupid with John laryngitis bringing ppl power legitimacy.

    • judy jorge

      I like the spinner belt. My son has one……

    • rudy

      What about the ice cream bars

    • Kane

      I don’t want the WWE to bring in a new belt coz they will not be able to live to the expectations & produce something worse than the current belt! Also, its not a “spinner” belt coz the WWE logo stopped spinning since 2009.
