Which Title is Better, World Championship Title or WWE Championship Title?

NWA World Title

I have been a wrestling fan for many years, I’ve seen many different styles of World Championship titles come and go, but there is one style that has lasted for years.  The Nature Boy Ric Flair made this title famous; it is now known as the WWE World Championship title. When Flair held this title it was known as the NWA World Heavyweight Championship belt, it was the highest honor a pro-wrestler can be given; now it is the title the WWE opens their PPV with. What a slap to the face to all of those legends, who had ever held this title, guys like Harley Race, Dusty Rhodes, Ricky Steamboat and the Funk Brothers. In my opinion the WWE World title is a work of art. The WWE (WWF) Championship title on the other hand has changed styles numerous times, from the “Smoking Skull”, to the “Brahma Bull” and to that spinning pile of crap John Cena carried around. My personal favorite was the original “Winged Eagle” version, the one Hulk Hogan made famous. I also like the look to the Undisputed Championship title. Some may say I am too old school, and to that I say “yes, I am”. I never liked the idea that a wrestler gets to create his own version of the title or the company creates one for them, that shit is crazy. The prime example is the Jeff Hardy version of the TNA World Championship title, which was a hideous looking piece of crap. Updating a World title sometimes back fires on them also, for example the ECW Championship title was upgraded during the rebirth of ECW in 2006. In my opinion it was overly large for some apparent reason, and it was Silver or Chrome, it was ugly! I am going to start two polls on the blog site;
