1. As an old school wrestling fan,

my personal favorite was the NWA World Television Championship belt. Originally, it was the NWA National Television Championship which was a pretty cool belt, also.

10. Now THAT'S a championship belt!


They had some good champions, also. Heels like Jake Roberts and Arn Anderson and faces like Ronnie Garvin and Tommy Rich.

5. Doesn't boxing have them too?

Perhaps it was a boxing belt that the guy actually won?

6. Pretty Sure That Boxing Belts

...predate wrestling belts. Not by a lot, but I've seem pictures of Marciano with that type of belt in the late 40s. Wrestling probably appropriated the idea when they became a TV staple a few years later.
They've become so ubiquitous for championships that there is a belt for Tournament of Champions on The Food Network, and for the All-Star championship on Guy's Grocery Games!
I'm not that big on the idea, but it's definitely a thing.
