Well, this should stop people from complaining about the current design.

This one is kind of cool though.

Just go back to the old winged eagle belt. So so nice.

Yikes is right. That red and yellow one reminds me of Hulkamania.
The 2nd one looks like something I'd see passed off at a biker rally.
Third one looks like a ring, not a belt.
The fourth one is the best of the bunch, I guess. If you rounded out the front of the belt and removed the feathers from the strap, it wouldn't be too bad.
I'm glad they didn't bother making a color version of the chain belt. What a terrible looking belt.

Ziggler & Jericho would be quite an interesting feud. Both amuse me to no end on the mic.

For a second there I thought they were going to feud Ziggler-Swagger effectively turning Dolph face the second they put the belt on him. I would have quit right then and there

Virgil dropped in on the Bruno Sammartino signing at Century III today.

The surprising part? I watched a couple people actually pay him for an autograph.

He also told a bunch of people he & Austin were meant to feud over Million $ Belt. Those people believed it.

When you say dropped in, do you mean he stood off to the side and charged people for autographs at an event where he wasn't booked?

Correct, Bruno was signing inside of a store and Virgil had set up a random table with photos and the Million $ Belt outside of said store.

I somewhat agree. I think the fact that he actually has a gimmick makes him more palatable to the audience. So many wrestlers over the last 7 years or so have no gimmick at all - just a generic create-a-wrestler. Gimmicks are a part of pro wrestling - something that makes it unique. In my opinion, the more unique gimmicks you have, the better.

That's one of the reasons I like Chikara so much is because they have;
-A reincarnated Egyptian pharaoh
-a marching band leader
-ants. Lots of ants.
-a pair of demons who hang out with a goblin prince
-someone imbued with a snake spirit

Etc...

edit: also, in the past, they have had a time travelling knight who was tag team partners with himself from a different time period, which may be the greatest idea for a wrestling tag team ever

I've always said wrestling was better when they all had other occupations: Cop, Barber, garbage man, tax agent, Canadian cop...

I'm downloading WWE '13 right now for 360. I've heard there's attitude era stuff in it. Can't wait to bring DX out to fight the Corporation.

the attitude stuff is the version of "Road to Wrestlemania" where you basically re live all the major matches with dx, taker, Austin, and bret hart., it's pretty coo to remember all those moments, but I got bored with it.

I won't be watching it till after 10 since I'm on late shift working from home tonight. Well I could take the laptop into the living room, but I figured it will be better just fast forwarding through all the crap later.

They are actually turning Lesnar face, aren't they.

Lose 2 out of 3 as an ERMAGHERD FEARSOME HEEL, and now he turns face. I hate the WWE sometimes

Does "steel cage" really mean anything to anyone at this point?

It basically means that every few minutes, someone will be thrown harmlessly into a flexible chain link fence.
