The new WWE World Heavyweight Championship has a lot of rich history behind it.
WWE released a video this week pointing out five hidden details included in the new title belt that AJ Styles and Seth Rollins will compete for this weekend at WWE Night Of Champions.
Those are as follows:
- 1. the eagle at the top of the main plate is a tribute to the legendary winged-eagle WWE Title belt
2. the three lions on the main plate is a reference to the three lions on the McMahon Family crest
3. the crown at the top of the main plate is a tribute to WWE Hall of Famer Bruno Sammartino’s May 1963 title win
4. 60 diamonds on the title design represent 60 years of WWE
5. each plate is trimmed with ring ropes to represent the squared circle
Check out the video below, and join us here on Saturday to find out who will be the first WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
