10 best looking championship belts in pro-wrestling
At Final Battle 2017, Ring of Honor unveiled a pair of new championship belts. One was a redone ROH World Championship, the 4th design of their nearly 16-year history, and the other was the Women of Honor Championship, the first of its kind for the promotion, in a long overdue move for a company that should have started acknowledging the existence of women’s wrestling as an important piece of the wrestling product a long time ago.
On January 1, 2018, they announced a redesign of all of their title belts, so it seems that right now is a good time to look back at some of the greatest title belt designs in the history of professional wrestling.
#10 WWE ECW Championship
Even though the version of ECW that WWE created as a third brand after the popularity of their 2005 One Night Stand PPV and subsequent “Rise and Fall of ECW” DVD set was disappointing at best and downright bad at worst, they still had a really cool-looking title belt. After ditching the design of the original (ugly) ECW World Title, WWE commissioned their own black-and-platinum title belt.
It looked different from the other belts in the company at the time but fit in all the same. It was a pretty large belt and it looked good on the shoulders and around the waists of the few men that held the title. The first man to hold it was Mark Henry, as it was introduced by then-ECW General Manager Theodore R. Long a month into his reign as champion.
The final man to hold it was Ezekiel Jackson, who won it from Christian on the final episode of WWE ECW TV in 2010. It was retired immediately.
