Cody Rhodes Talks New Intercontinental Title Design

Cody Rhodes Talks New Intercontinental Title Design

As noted, a new WWE Intercontinental Title belt was revealed during last night’s SmackDown episode.

Cody Rhodes responded to a fan on Twitter who claimed that WWE’s new design of the Intercontinental championship was done in order to make fans forget that Rhodes was the one who resurfaced the classic white-strap design back in 2011.

Rhodes disagrees, saying that it was most likely due to a change, and that he looks forward to the title creating great moments for talent in the future.

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.

In a 2013 interview, Rhodes noted that he initially paid to have the white title made, showed it to Vince McMahon, and was later refunded for the initial investment.

“You have no idea how difficult that was to get the IC Title, the white IC Title,” Rhodes said. “Not many people know this—I paid for the title to be recreated. I was refunded, heavily refunded, but I paid to show it to the man and said, ‘Listen, this will get a reaction, that you might not think it will and here’s why,’ you know? And I’m very happy to see it still in existence.”
