Section I - Guide Introduction
-------------------------------------

If you’re a fan of pro wrestling title belts, then
SmackDown vs. Raw is a game you’ll want to at least try out.
Unlike every other create a belt mode that I can remember,
where you had to just name an existing belt, or at most,
choose from under a dozen different parts, this mode
lets you choose from dozens of belt parts,
including many parts used for some of wrestling's
most legendary title belts.
With this guide, I hope to give you a bit of history on the notable
U.S.-based belts that you can recreate.
Then, give you all of the information you need to
 make the belt in the game.
If this sounds cool to you, kick back and enjoy the ride.

This belt design has been used many times by various
independent promotions, and
ECW even used a silver version of
the belt design for their tag team titles at one point.
This incarnation of the title was first held by Tito Santana,
and last held by the Rock.  Sadly, SvR can’t replicate it perfectly
due to the centerpiece area not having a suitable globe for it,
or even a blue option for it.
The lack of being able to place text on the center plate is
certainly a downer as well,
and something that hurts this belt replication.
Bad side plates don’t help matters, either.

Here you have a classic championship title belt, which was held by
some of the all-time greats in the sport.
The main belt design was also used for many regional titles
during the mid-to-late ‘80s,
and was even used for one of Hogan’s WWF titles,
although that belt used black leather instead of red.
Here’s another one hurt by the bad side plates,
the “World Heavyweight” text in the belt itself,
and the centerpiece’s color can’t be changed to its proper red color.

One of wrestling’s most cherished, and longest-lasting belt designs.
Held by some of wrestling’s greatest, this belt is sure to be a fan favorite
to be recreated here.  This is the third game to allow you to create it,
with Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 and Fire ProWrestling D being the first two.
This belt design was also used for many NWA and regional championships.
It is said that Ric Flair owns the original domed globe belt,
with “KVE” scratched into it by none other than Kerry Von Erich.
The replication here is okay, barring the lack of eyelets, bad side plates,
and the butchering of the actual center plate design, which
has the domed globe built into it,
and yet can’t be shown off due to the requirement of having a centerpiece.

Created for Steve Austin, this is a fan-favorite title belt,
which is rather amazing
given how little time it was around for.
This is the third game that has allowed this belt to be made,
with WrestleMania 2000 and Fire ProWrestling D being the first two.
This is yet another belt replication killed by
the centerpiece and side plate shortcomings.

This is easily one of wrestling’s most history-laden belts,
just take a gander at who has held it, the list reads
like a who’s who of the past, present, and the future.
This is the second game that has allowed Big Gold to be recreated,
Fire ProWrestling D was the first.
Barring the centerpiece problem, and the fact that the belt leather
just doesn’t fit the plates all that well,
this is a pretty accurate replication.

Belt name - WCW World Heavyweight Championship
In-game title name - WCW World
In-game title classification - Heavyweight
Notable holders of the belt - Ric Flair, Vader, Sting, Ron Simmons

Photo of in-game belt -
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v246/JaytheGamefan/SVRWCWWorld.jpg

This was the primary belt used after Ric Flair left WCW in 1991.
Prior to this belt being introduced in July of 1991,
WCW used Dusty’s PWF title and (horribly) replated it with WCW stuff.
The end result was comically bad, to say the least.
This particular belt played host to Ric Flair’s
first retirement match in WCW,
which he won, overcoming the massive Vader with a cradle.
This title belt was dropped when Sting and Flair
unified the WCW International
and WCW World Heavyweight titles at Clash of the Champions 26.
This is the first game that has allowed you to make this belt.
Sadly, it doesn’t allow you to make it all that well.
The end result here barely resembles the real thing
due to the lack of good side plates,
or again, belt leather that fits the plates.
The centerpiece problem rears its ugly head again as well.

This is the main “Attitude” era belt, and debuted
the night after WrestleMania XIV, the night in which
the Austin-McMahon storyline went into overdrive.
This title stopped being used when the Undisputed title was
transitioned from being two belts into what is mainly
now the WWE Championship.
Beware the recurring theme, this belt is
marred by the side plate
and centerpiece problems.
At least it looks like the belt it’s based on,
unlike the WCW World title replication.

Photo of in-game belt -
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v246/JaytheGamefan/WWFALHW.jpg

Here you have a title that was given plenty of hype, and then
kind of dropped when it was introduced.
Taka Michinoku was the first WWF Light Heavyweight champion
(as recognized in North America)
when the title was brought into the company in 1997.
He had a good run with the gold, but lost it to
Christian in his first on-air match in the company
(a feat that Jerry Lynn would later repeat.)
Designed to be the WWF’s answer to WCW’s world cruiserweight title,
the division just didn’t live up to that,
and was made into a joke after Gillberg won it
from Christian, and then dropped it to Essa Rios,
where it was treated as an actual title for the first time in
about a year. Dean Malenko beat Essa for the gold,
then lost it to Scotty 2 Hotty in April of 2000, who then lost it Dean.
At Backlash that year, they had a true classic for it,
which was perhaps the only truly great match for this title,
although the division itself had some great matches,
including one with Tajiri, before the title was made.
The title was treated with some importance during the Invasion,
but was killed off after X-Pac left due to injury.
The replication here is helped by the Light Heavyweight title
text being on the belt itself, so
I went with a centerpiece that cut as little of
that text off as possible.
The side plates aren’t perfect, but they’re not the
worst ones that could be used here.
I went with a black belt color instead of red
since that's the one I enjoyed seeing more,
feel free to use red as well.

Brought in after WrestleMania XIV, this incarnation of the IC strap
has been held by some of modern wrestling’s biggest and brightest stars.
This version of the belt was discontinued after No Mercy '02
The SvR replication keeps the main plate looking nice (it even has the
“World Wrestling Federation” text on it
for authenticity, but again, the centerpiece and side plate problems
hurt the belt.  The inability to place jewelry wherever
we want on the belt also hurts things, as you’re limited to placing
them on the centerpiece.  Still though, it’s better than nothing.

Here is the sole AWA belt replication that can really be done in SvR.
Barring the centerpiece and side plates, the belt looks pretty good.
SvR lucks out with the center plate not fitting the leather, but again,
the side plates are problematic.
The coloring looks realistic, which is a plus.

This is one of my all-time favorite belts, held by quite possibly my favorite
heel, Rick Rude.
He and Sting feuded over this belt, making it mean something.
Rude went on to feud with Steamboat in a series of classics,
culminating in their epic iron man match.
From here, the belt went back and forth between he and Dustin Rhodes, during
this time,
the gold was vacated, and Rude moved on from this title to focus his attention
on Ric Flair’s
NWA World title.  Sadly, by the time he won it, the “NWA” recognition was gone
from the belt,
so he just won the belt itself, which would become the WCW World title as
recognized by WCW International.
With Rhodes holding the gold, he would feud with Steve Austin, who beat him for
the title in a two out of three falls bout
at Starrcade ‘93.  Austin would face Ricky Steamboat off and on for most of
‘93, before an injury at the Clash forced Steamboat
into retirement.  He forfeited the U.S. title to Austin at Fall Brawl ‘94, and
with a loser leaves WCW stipulation attached,
Austin knew he wouldn’t have to worry about the Dragon.  He didn’t count on Jim
Duggan though, who bested Austin in about a minute to win the gold.
Duggan’s reign ended at Starrcade ‘94 at the hands of Vader, a man who one year
before had lost the world title.
Vader had to vacate the title due to violent actions, and Sting won it at that
year’s Great American Bash.
Following his run, the title went into a downward spiral of sorts, held with
little esteem by Kensuke Sasaki and the One Man Gang.
Konnan’s win ended this bad streak, as he had a fantastic defense against
Jushin Liger at that year’s Slamboree, and then lost the gold
to the legendary Ric Flair at Bash at the Beach.  Flair had to vacate the
title, which Eddie Guerrero won in a tournament final at Starrcade.
Eddie feuded with Syxx over the gold, before losing it to Dean Malenko in a
classic bout at Uncensored ‘97.  After Dean’s reign ended
at the hands of Jeff Jarrett, Steve McMichael got it, and then lost it to the
legendary Curt Hennig, who made the championship seem important again.
DDP won the gold from him, while embroiled in the nwo-WCW war.  He primarily
feuded with Raven, who eventually won the gold, before
losing it to Goldberg after holding it for one day.  Goldberg vacated the strap
after winning the world title from Hulk Hogan  After Goldberg’s reign,
the title went into yet another downward spiral, being used as a mere prop, and
not being valued by those who held it.  Lance Storm’s victory for the gold
propelled it into being
important again, and was the first of the three titles he held simultaneously.
He and Bill Demott traded the belt a couple of times in an exciting feud, and
then the title was back into
meaningless ground, before being brought to the WWF and held by such names as
Kurt Angle, Tajiri, Rhyno, Kanyon, and finally, Edge.  After Edge unified the
title with Test’s IC title
at the ‘01 Survivor Series, this belt officially died.  WWE brought the title
back in ‘03, with a  horrid, new design.  This belt can be replicated well,
since the IC title base works
well for both the small and large designs of it used in WCW.
Barring the lack of color and poor side plates, this works pretty well as a
U.S. title belt.

Brought about at the beginning of 1997, this belt is one of my
all-time favorites,
and was used for ECW’s first Pay-Per-View, Barely Legal, in April of 1997.
The in-game
replication comes pretty close to the ring thing, barring the centerpiece
and side plate problems.
The belt leather is also far too big for the center plate.
