First, Candido316 welcome.
 
Second, please don't double post.  If you have more to add to your post then use the "Post Options" function to edit your post to include your comments.
  
I didn't call the current WWE Tag Team Championship title belts "rodeo belts."  I said there's rodeo belts that look better.  I knew a semi-pro rodeo rider and he showed me some of the belts he has won.  They can be incredibly detailed well-crafted awards.  The current WWE tag belts were designed to be simplistic belts that could be easily replicated as toys.
 
I think Kondor summarized best with this:

In a way it is one more lost art of wrestling. I think any of the old school belt designs would own even the best of them today. 
 
Personally, I think the idea of treating a championship belt as artwork lasted into the 1980's.  But somewhere since then they achieved a T-shirt status.  It's no wonder that WWE's "new" Intercontinental Championship belt is actually just a modified version of the classic edition.

My Current Favorite Championships are the IWGP heavyweight and Jr heavyweight, well designed belts with the side plates with the names of previous champions.

Now this is the kind of wrestling talk I'm down with. 

This is and always will be my favorite all time belt.  I don't know what it is about it, but I enjoy the shape, and size and design.

The IWGP was previously mentioned, and I also enjoy the large, trophy style belt as well.

Another favorite - the GHC (Global Honored Crown) from NOAH.  Has a classic feel, and I enjoy the shape.  I wish I had the money to have a huge strap collection.

Love the concept of having the former champion's names of the belt. Gives the title a bit more meaning.

I agree.  I understand the different styles of title booking between here and Japan - but for that kind of title that doesn't change hands frequently - that is really neat.

Yeah imagine trying to just fit just the World title changes in the last 3 years on it.  Would be impossible
