The title design left some fans confused. While the new belt does look neat, the old Intercontinental Championship was one of the best looking main roster WWE belts.
It was at the Hell In A Cell pay-per-view back in 2011 when Cody Rhodes unveiled the traditional white Intercontinental Championship.
Some speculated online that the re-design of the title was caused by the fact that Cody now works as All Elite Wrestling’s Executive Vice President.
Very soon after the show, Cody was asked by a fan whether or not he thought the new title was introduced because of the previous design’s ties with Rhodes.
However, the AEW star said this was “unlikely”. He argued that WWE likely just thought it was “time for a change” with the old title.
Unlikely. Probably just time for a change. All good things and such…
I’m sure this one will have great moments/wrestlers attached to it just like the older one. https://t.co/BR4FrG8NW3

In what was a nice touch, Cody then said that he hopes the new belt generated some “great moments” like the one that came before it.
