I just love that the best known photo of this necessarily also features a glass of champagne, a margarita, and an evening be-gowned boob.

It wouldn't be Flair if there wasn't.

This, to me, screams out like a headband you would win at the high striker game at Six Flags before digging into the cooler of cold KFC and RC cola you snuck in for lunch.

That would have been the perfect belt for world champ Biker Taker.

Strapped to the front of his motorcycle while he careened around the ring? Absolutely!

Anyone know what's up with Dave Millican?

I've sent him three emails asking for a quote on a copy of the Jim Crockett version of the World TV Title belt but haven't gotten a response.

Check the Belt Talk board. You have to register, but use it as a monthly burner account like I do, because if you don't post they kick you out. Maybe you'll get your answer that way.

I'm partial to the original incarnation of the ROH Tag Team Championship that kinda sort of looks like the NWA Tag Team Championship

Um, those were actually the second ROH tag titles.  The first ones, won by Donovan Morgan and Christopher Daniels, were really cheap looking knockoffs of the IC title belt.

My $.02 regarding this thread: I hate hate hate the phrase "winged eagle." There's no other kind, folks.  Also, as far as the AWA belt goes, I prefer the one that looks like it was designed by Slartibartfast.  Finally, I always thought that WCW '91 abomination was originally the belt for Dusty's PWF.  Carry on.

My second favourite championship was the NWA US title, I thought it looked really sweet.

@cool arrow It's called the "Winged Eagle" because its wings break the confines of the center plate.

as opposed to the title that followed, where they did not.

He's got a five  year wait anyway. 

However, he is now licensing his designs to guys who were previously bootlegging them, like Fandu, RF, and Highspots.

What do you call the Winged Eagle then?

Correct, the above being called the Big Eagle. That picture is a really poor example, though. As replicas go it's in poor shape. Replicas are usually terrible anyways though.

They highlighted the areas I was concerned with, and were not teeny tiny, so I chose them.

It should be referred to as the "Spread Eagle" belt.  I mean, just look at those legs.

I don't see a lot of love for Big Green, but I adored that version of the title. Perhaps that comes from my affinity for the WBC titles. I always thought they kind of had a similar vibe. I would love to know if the story about it being dumped in the trash outside a venue is actually true. If it is, what a shame.

I always heard Hogan gave it to his brother-in-law

Is that from the 91 Bash?  I was there...what a shitshow. 

It is. My sympathy.

Re: The Big Gold

There's a least 5 versions of that belt throughout it's use as NWA/WCW/World Heavyweight Championship. You have the original, known as the "Crumrine", a recast, the WWF "Vegas" Big Gold, then two WWE World Heavyweight Championship versions.

I didn't know this. Thanks.

I was trying to find a pic of Flair on TV with the blurred tag belt but all I can find are pre-blur photos, which are also great:

EDIT: GAH, beaten to it so I'll just leave this here: nice article about the history of the big gold belt

 

As a kid watching the official Survivor Series 1991, the shape reminded me of the world tag team titles. Thank you. I'll read that article.

I have no idea why TNA quit using this.  Looks so much better than the one they replaced it with and unlike the current one it actually fit around the waist properly.

The new WWE belts look like ass.  The center plate is basically just a stencil.  They look so cheap and tacky.  The women's belts, well the SmackDown version at least, don't look too bad from a distance but the colored background is just the strap painted.

I dont know why TNA stopped using that belt. Same goes for the X Division Championship and TNA World Tag Team Championship at the same time:

Would that be the Brazzers Universal Title?

Dipshit wearing the belt wrong way round. At times, Great Khali lifted the World Heavyweight Championship upside down:

I'll take these worn treasures with its 50+ years of history and meaning over any other.
