This is the second time this year that WWE officials have resurrected an old WCW idea, as it was recently announced that Starrcade will be returning next month. Luckily War Games is a match that fans have been hoping to see for a long time, so there’s already a lot of hype behind the next NXT Takeover event.

When Starrcade was announced Cody Rhodes took to Twitter to comment on the return, and threw shade at WWE for not using the name while Dusty Rhodes was alive.

This time around it appears that Cody feels different about the situation, because he noted that he was contacted ahead of time.

Jinder Mahal is the current WWE Champion, and when you’re the champion you get your own custom side plates on the title belt.

Mahal recently got some new plates installed on the belt, and he revealed them via Snapchat.

If you want to compare you can check out the old plates below.

The plates have been changed…enter the @jindermahal era. #SDLive
