    I don't think it is like

    Outright bad

    But "black strap with gold metal bits" is very overused at this point and the actual design isn't cool enough to make up for it

    The IC Belt was my fave so I am also just salty about that

    Guess they finally remembered that Cody was the one that brought the white belt back. Can't have that.

    Don't tell WWE to get creative with the strap colors and metals, or you'll get... well, every other main roster WWE belt.

    The North American Title and IC Title were two of my faves specifically because they played with colors but in restrained ways

    Not like making a fruit roll up strap

    Juice Robinson told Joey Mercury in a DM that ROH paid him a third of what he wanted

    ROH started their year by having a brand new stable led by Juice that was supposed to keep interest in the company immediately post-Elite, meanwhile they were paying its leader (by his own admission) a third of what they should've. No wonder he left the company at the first possible opportunity

    Shit. Right. #offseason. Any Xavier answer (there was one) is now Kofi, unless they PM me to change it.

    Edit:

    I like it because it's a relatively unique gold design in WWE's landscape. Though I honestly couldn't tell you what the IC title looked like before, they're all so homogenous I keep mentally confusing it with the women's title (which may not have a white strap anymore I don't know). But it looks...small? Maybe the scale is skewed in the video but it looks smaller than most of the mid tier belts.

    EDIT: They're fucking up this Fiend booking completely. He's fighting Daniel Bryan of all people and there's still no reason to be excited for it. It's the mandible claw not One Punch Man's serious punch, Bryan has to get at least some offense in even if the Fiend no sells it to make us believe the match can go any way. And they're still going with the red lighting.

    I think that the new IC title is good. I just don't think it's better than what they already had.

    That being said, I'm a sucker for the white strap and I'm also a fan of large front faceplates. Now that the white strap is gone and the faceplate is smaller, I don't like it as much.

    FYI, the Big Gold Belt is my favorite belt of all time due to it's massive front faceplate. It *looks* like something only the best wrestler would wear.

    If anyone here is an old school MMA fan, PRIDE FC also had some massive title belts and I always loved them more than the UFC title belts.

    Challenge accepted!

    Cole is tossed out early, and Bray and Brock do some big moves and no sell, laughing at the efforts, but eventually start to gradually wear each other down. Cole comes back to take advantage after some big move leaves both laying prone, but doesn't get the pin. Eventually, the big guys get up and start working on Cole, then the rest of the Undisputed Era comes in and a big brawl breaks out, eventually ending either with UE hightailing it up the ramp, or Brock and Bray destroying them all.

    Brock and Bray stand side by side, triumphant, until Brock suddenly F5's Bray and just gets the pin before Bray sits up and puts the mandible claw on Brock. Brock manages to kick Bray off of him, and the two brawl all around ringside and have to be broken up, with referee casualties numbering in the thousands.

    She sorta reminded me of Bayley for some reason, so it's... interesting she turned so soon after Bayley did.
