Colours are generally synonymous with the different brands within WWE. RAW is red, and so are a majority of its championship belts. The same holds true for SmackDown and the extensive use of the colour blue.

Ever since the launch of the Cruiserweight Division, the colour associated with the division and its corresponding belt has been 'purple'. However, new Cruiserweight Champion Kalisto, who won the title on RAW this week, put up a brand new Tweet that sent social media into a frenzy.

Kalisto defeated the former Cruiserweight Champion, Enzo Amore, in a lumberjack match. He took to social media and showed off his brand new championship. The difference between the old and new belts is quite obvious at first glance.

However, despite the fact that many have assumed that the belt strap will now be black in colour, moving forward, the truth of the matter is that Kalisto had used an Instagram filter. This filter 'Ludwig' changed the look and feel of the title and made it seem darker than it usually is.

Many on social media agreed that the championship looks far cooler in black, instead of purple. Maybe it could be food for thought, for WWE's creative team, for a change in colour, somewhere down the line.

As for Kalisto's championship and 205 Live, both will remain synonymous with the colour purple. Life is back to normal once again, for the Cruiserweights.
