• Is WWE Bringing Back The Big Gold Belt?
The ‘Big Gold Belt’ is not only one of the most important titles in professional wrestling history, but is also considered one of the most beautiful belts of all time, by a large amount of wrestling fans all over the planet.
Recently, rumors of WWE bringing the belt back came up online, but ‘Belt Fan Dan’ (who has broken several stories regarding WWE’s Title belts) has confirmed that it will only be in form of replica titles that will be sold on the WWE Shop.
Here’s what Dan Beltzer posted:
“Since people want to take my private conversations and post them elsewhere for clout, I’ll just say this:
Rumor is WWE is casting one of the early J-Mar 3D CNC Big Gold belts and will be offering replicas in the Fall.
Seems to be a response to the popularity of the Fandu.”

WWE retired the “Big Gold Belt” World Heavyweight Championship in 2014. Brock Lesnar was the final man to officially hold it.

• Old School WCW/WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 66th birthday of Old School WCW/WWF Legend Big Van Vader (Real name: Leon White).
Big Van Vader was most famous for his time in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling between 1990 & 1995 and for his run in the World Wrestling Federation from 1996 till 1998.
Vader also wrestled for various other promotions such as New Japan Pro Wrestling, American Wrestling Association, Catch Wrestling Association, All Japan Pro Wrestling, Total Nonstop Action! and Pro Wrestling Noah.
Him being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame is only a matter of “when” and not “if”, but unfortunately WWE failed to induct Vader while he was still alive.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
May 14, 1955 – June 18, 2018
