    Actually I do recall Cena saying it's time for a new belt.

    Ironically one of the reasons he stated for not liking the spinner is because it's heavier than most belts. But it sounds like the new one is heavier still.

    Punk has been saying the belt sucked since before he got the belt, and it's been 200 days

    ok...and we all know the big sticking point was the toy deal, maybe the WWE are trying to work with Mattel on it....lawyers have to hash that out and things like that hardly happen overnight

    I'd love to see the deal on that, i still find it silly that they have to maintain the current look to keep the deal. DC doesn't not change costumes on characters because of toy deals.

    Guys made for WWE, just send him back there.
    One thing that ROH has done very well over their entire history is protect the fact that their entire roster is like 5'4". Claudio and Hero being the main exceptions, but whoever has been in control of ROH has made sure that if they're going to bring in someone who is way taller than their normal guys, you're not going to see them standing next to anyone other than the one or two guys they're fighting. Even when Abyss was a lot better than he is now, ROH only brought him in once or twice.

    There's a way to make Morgan work in ROH, but it would be way easier to make him work in WWE.

    The answer is none.
    They did use him in the insurance commercial, so I don't think you can say none.

    it's a marketing strategy....revenue by association....kids/fans see performer carrying said belt, they want a replica...now considering how popular the spinner was, that same strategy is probably what kept the deal going for so long

    if you remove the spinner, the fans will not see it as important and therefore NOT want a replica

    You really don't have to double post this stuff. Just saying, I would guess most of us read the other threads, so no need to over do it since it isn't huge news.

    Though how is Vince going to evaluate Big Johnny's Job if he got kicked out of his job.... I DON'T UNDERSTAND YOU WWE

    It's ideas like this that make my head hurt. Isn't HHH, storyline wise, supposed to be THE GUY incharge of WWE? Ok so he's busy with the Lesnar situation so wouldn't it be logical to have Stephanie be the person to evaluate Ace?

    Again, Its the three month rule.


    http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...ThreeMonthRule

    In professional wrestling, anything that happened more than three months ago is no longer true canon.
    Professional Wrestling's version of Negative Continuity and Retcon.
    The unwritten rule states that any events that took place more than three months ago do not need to be considered canon. This creates interesting situations where two wrestlers who were recently at each other's throats are now the best of friends. It also provides a means for the writers to not have to explain radical changes in a character's gimmick (went from a millionaire playboy to a voodoo priest and back again? No problem!).
    Note that this is different from the Seven Year Rule; after three months, the aftereffects of a storyline can be forgotten, but after seven years, the storyline itself can be recycled wholesale.

    http://www.lordsofpain.net/news/wwe/...rmination.html

    Following WWE's announcement Wednesday that Randy Orton had been suspended for 60 days for his second violation of the Talent Wellness Program, the SmackDown wrestler met with Chairman Vince McMahon, Executive Vice President of Talent and Live Events Paul Levesque and Executive Vice President of Television Production Kevin Dunn at the organization's headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut on Friday.

    A WWE source described the meeting's atmosphere as "hostile;" it was determined that a further decision concerning Orton awaits. Furthermore, "several" officials are lobbying for his termination as a cost-cutting measure. They feel his lucrative ten-year contract—signed in January 2010—can no longer be justified if he is brought back in a mid-level role.

    McMahon especially, is infuriated with Orton, who felt he had matured in recent years. The nine-time world champion's suspension reportedly stems from a positive drug test for the anabolic steroid Dianabol, which is banned by the United States Congress under its Controlled Substances Act. He also reportedly tested positive for marijuana, which is subject to a $2,500 fine.
