WWE Hall of Famer Edge has revealed a special ‘Rated-R’ championship belt design that was rejected and instead a spinner belt with his logo was used.
This was of course back when he’d beaten Cena for the WWE Title, who had introduced the polarising spinner design.
On an episode of WWE Untold on the WWE Network, Edge explained that he hated the spinner belts and had tried to introduce his own custom title after beating Cena.
“When they approached me and said, ‘We’re going to do a Rated R Championship belt’, I was like, ‘Right, let me get to work!’ I got home and drew up this beautiful championship belt. This thing was badass.
“When I got back, they were like, ‘Well, no; we’re just going to put your logo in it.’ Like, that’s it? Edge wouldn’t want a spinner belt. That, to me, is the one championship that needs to look like a championship and not somebody’s hub caps.”
