I always thought the old US title was so cool looking, not just the design, but it looked GOOD when worn, sorta like the IC title SCSA threw over the bridge to piss the Rock off.

I am sure the new one will grow on me, but, I will miss the old design.

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of that new design. There is hardly any gold on the front of it! Maybe it will get tweaked over time. I think what it needs is a big gold plate in the middle of it instead of that black one, and some more gold down towards the bottom of on the point. I do like the shape, though, as it is rahter unique for a WWE belt. The old design was good, but kinda seemed like a ripoff of the coolest title belt of all time- the 1987-1998 IC belt.

I hate the limited amount of gold on it. Why don't you just put an American flag on a piece of leather?

I really think that the new design US Title is one of the ugliest belts, EVER!

Wow. Um, yeah.

I have to believe that the guys in the SD locker room are yelling "Not It!" so they don't have to wear this monstrosity.

Don't they also have to worry about injuring their junk on that pointy part at the bottom?

That's a great looking belt.

Nice to see they're expanding the designs away from the traditional style. The flag background is sharp. and the *clearly legible* black title plate with gold lettering is a smart idea. And those stars on the side plates ...

Man, that's a swank belt. Seriously.

I agree. I kind of like the new belt. Everything is legible and I am a big fan of the large fan. The only drawback is the prminent disply of the WWE logo on the top.

The problem with the old belt could be that it looks a lot like Lesnar's WWE Championship.

This iso fficially the ugliest belt I have ever seen in a major promotion. Seriously, it's just awful. I'd have rather them brought back the Hardcore title and changed the masking tape rather than see this monstrosity.

I wouldn't call it ugly but it's...umm...definitely different. The cool part about the original US title was the Eagle and the small American flag on it. I guess the biggest qualm I have with the title is the lack of gold on the front plate. But the American flag completely on the front is an ok touch. It just seems a little plain on the front. And i'll agree with the guy in the SD thoughts thread that said it looks similar to the cruiserweight title. Especially in its shape.

I have yet to see this week's show though (it was pre-empted for a Dodger game here). I've seen a couple screencaps with Steph holding it and it looks ok from afar.

I'm optimistic though that this is one of those moments where it doesn't look right at first, but after some time, it'll grow on me.

I like it. It's different from the usual bland gold plate, it's GOT A NAMEPLATE-and a highly visible one, at that-and it's a great shape compared to other belts.

I guess it depends upon which belt you consider the "original" US Title Belt, unless you are talking about the belt that (according to Smackdown last night) was first worn by Harley Race. My FAVORITE US belt was the red one that Nikita Koloff and Magnum TA feuded over. At least it seems cool in my memory. It was distinctive and a nice looking belt to boot.

Flatterer.

I believe what I meant to say was I don't like the belt.

With the prominent red white and blue it might look weird on anyone besides Angle or Mr. America. I dont think we will need to worry about that for a while though.

Edit: Yep, Mr. America is definitely getting that belt. Look at the name of the website the photo is from.

sorry, yeah, I probably didn't mean to say original but I still typed it out. hah. I remember there was an older belt. How it looked like escapes my memory at the moment. The old NWA/WCW US Tag Belts come to mind. Now those were pretty cool looking too with the red strap and the red, white, and blue "USA" on the front:

I like the new belt. It will stand out better on TV. All the belt look the same to the TV cameras and most of the crowd (those not sitting in the first few rows.) At the very least, they are trying to be creative with the design which is a good thing.

Perhaps if Lance Storm ever wins it, he could replace the U.S. flag with that Canadian flag sticker, like he did in WCW.

After a lot of thought, I seem to think it looks like one of the dorky UFC belts. Shiney and colorfull doesnt always translate into attractive.

And, I liked the one that Magnum and Nikita fueded over as well.

Uh...No.

Anyone who isn't near-sighted would be embarrassed to wear that belt.

It looks like a spoof of a title belt, that would be used in a skit on MAD TV. They'd put it on a smallish, Phil Lamarr type and have him blurt out stupidity: "Look at my mighty championship of Ameri-Cality!"

poop. Just poop.
