They kind of go together. Champions are easy to spot in wrestling and there’s a very good reason for that: they’re the ones wearing the big, shiny belts. Title belts have been around as long as wrestling has, with their origins coming from the boxing world. They aren’t going away anytime soon and some of the designs that you have seen over the years are iconic. One of the current designs is something that you may have seen outside of wrestling in recent days.
If there is one thing that WWE knows how to do, it is get their brand on things. WWE will put its logo on anything and everything that they can use to make money. It is a strategy that works because that logo is everywhere. This includes on their titles, which are often just big WWE logos attached to a belt. One of those was on display this week and it had nothing to do with wrestling.
Earlier this week, the new Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs celebrates their victory with a parade. Part of the celebration saw star tight end Travis Kelce celebrating while wearing a customized WWE Championship, which was sent to the team on behalf of WWE. This is a tradition from WWE, who sends a title to every major sports champion. The titles often show up during celebrations such as this one.

It was quite the celebration. Check out Kelce’s speech while wearing the title:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that makes WWE look good because there is something to be said about seeing a champion wearing a big belt. If it just happens to have a huge WWE logo right in the middle, so be it. That keeps WWE in mind and gives them a bit more of a connection to pop culture as well. The Chiefs are going to get a lot of trophies and gifts for winning, so WWE might as well get in on things.
