WWE Orders New Plates For All Titles

WWE-Logo

 

The post-SummerSlam RAW from Las Vegas will be the official launch of the new WWE logo, the one seen on the WWE Network.

It has been confirmed that when the change is official, all WWE title belts will have the new logo. WWE has recently ordered new plates for all title belts so the titles will appear slightly different.

It also appears that indeed WWE will retire the big gold World Title belt & the WWE World Heavyweight Champion will carry just one belt.

Will KENTA Have To Change His Moves?

KENTA

 

KENTA may have to change his moves when he starts wrestling for WWE. KENTA’s Go 2 Sleep move is obviously associated with CM Punk & WWE may not allow him to use it because it would remind fans of Punk. KENTA’s Busaiku knee finisher has been used by Daniel Bryan & his Game Over submission was taken by Bryan & is now called the Yes Lock. KENTA also likely wouldn’t be allowed to use hi Tiger suplex because of fear of kneck injury issues.

Apparently the new team of Layla & Summer Rae is seen as the new adaption of LayCool, Layla’s former team with Michelle McCool. It’s reported that WWE put Layla & Summer Rae together because of the return of The Beautiful People in TNA. WWE couldn’t reunite LayCool, so they put Layla with the Diva who looks most like McCool.
