Reviewing wrestling title belts: bringing an additional flair and quality

The world of wrestling has seen several wrestling belts come and go through the years. Some of them remained in memory and became fan favorites, while some others simply vanished from everyone’s minds. Some belts represent an unmatched aesthetic quality and appeal, while others fall a little short. So, which ones can be considered as best? Here’s a list of the top five pro wrestling title belts.

#1 The WCW World Heavyweight Championship

Among all pro wrestling championship belts, this is the belt that signifies only one thing—among billions of people on earth, the holder of this belt is simply the best. Made of solid gold, engulfing the holder’s entire waist, this belt is meant for a king.

#2 WWE Intercontinental Championship

In the prolonged history of the Intercontinental Championship, this belt has had about seven designs, some with slight alterations. Being counted among the most famed wrestling belts, this one was commonly held by the best wrestlers in the company like The Ultimate Warrior and The Honky Tonk Man.

#3 NWA World Heavyweight Championship

Established in 1957 from the original World Heavyweight Championship, the design of this belt has been tweaked slightly over the years, making it highly unrecognizable. Its old-school design is simple yet extremely effective.

#4 WWE Undisputed Championship

This belt was surprisingly short-lived—introduced after WrestleMania X-8 and retired only three years later, taken over by The Spinner Belt. However, during its short life span, this belt was held by some elite wrestlers including Hulk Hogan, Triple H, The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, and The Rock, among others.

#5 The Current WWE Tag Team Championship

Being the final entry on this list of magnificent wrestling title belts, it displays two fearsome Spartans, set to fight ’til death with “Tag Team Champions” shown in shining gold boldly. This belt is truly meant for the champions.
