On Raw, WWE Champion The Rock did away with the “spinner” design that has served as the WWE Title since 2005. The design — introduced by John Cena during his first title reign — has divided the WWE Universe since its inception. Now, eight years since the WWE Championship last changed, The Great One has unveiled a new look for the most coveted prize in sports-entertainment.

This is not the first time the WWE Title has been altered. There have been many prominent and unique variations of the championship since its inception some 50 years ago. In honor of the redesigned WWE Title, WWE Classics looks back at the championship’s evolution from the earliest versions to the customized championships of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Edge.
