#4 John Cena helped with the spinner WWE Championship design
In 2005, John Cena introduced a spinner version of the WWE Championship. The title, which lasted until 2013, is generally viewed as the most controversial WWE Championship design in history.
John Cena’s legendary rivalry with Edge in the mid-2000s was the subject of a WWE Untold episode on the WWE Network in September 2020.
During a segment about the bold title design, John Cena revealed that he played a big role in creating the polarizing WWE Championship.
“How I was about the spinner Championship belt -- I was much more involved and meticulous about the design. Where the diamonds should be, the size of the diamonds, the shape of the spinner, the size of the diamonds on the inside of the spinner, where the colored gems should be, the difference in metal, what the leather should feel like. Like, I was so much more into that.” [H/T Fightful]
While John Cena liked the unique WWE Championship design, the man behind the Edge character – Adam Copeland – certainly did not. The Rated-R Superstar admitted that he “hated” the title and did not think his character would want a spinner version of the WWE Championship.Published 24 Sep 2020, 02:35 IST
