Cody Rhodes: They Can Fine Me $1,000 Every Time I Say Belt, That's Fine

It's a belt.

Vince McMahon has often spoken about branding in the world of WWE, saying things like "sports entertainment" instead of "pro wrestling," "superstar" instead of "wrestler," and "championship" instead of "belt."

Cody Rhodes is not worried about the repercussions of saying "belt."

During San Diego Comic Con, new figures and titles were revealed, with the speaker mentioning "new championships."

Cody commented, "You can say belts."

Sam Roberts remarked that Cody can say "belts," but others might get in trouble.

Cody said, "They can fine me $1,000 every time I say belts. I'm fine with that. If they give me a title belt, sure it's a championship, but it also physically goes around your waist. Those are great belts."

Cody famously brought back the white strap Intercontinental Championship in 2012 and has hinted at bringing back the Winged-Eagle Championship should he win the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
