Has WWE Retired the World Heavyweight Championship Belt?
There has been speculation that WWE might have retired the World Heavyweight Championship on Raw tonight, as John Cena handed the belt to Ric Flair, told him to keep it, and Flair left the ring with it.
Later in the night, JBL made reference to there being “only one title” now, however it was not officially announced that the title would not be used going forward.
Paglino: As much as I love the old WCW belt, I don’t have a problem with WWE deciding to retire it. With the customizable side plates on the new WWE Title, they could very easily make some adjustments to note that it’s now the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, or even design a plate that looks similar to the WCW belt.
