WWE Replica Winged Eagle Championship Title Belt
Crafted after the actual belt handmade by Reggie Parks, the WWE Winged Eagle Championship Adult Size Casted Replica Belt is an exact scale replica of the classic 1990’s version with the Legends “W” logo.
Introduced in 1988, the “winged eagle” is arguably the most popular variation of the WWE Championship. Debuting on The Main Event during the WrestleMania III rematch between Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant, the classic design represented the most coveted prize in sports-entertainment for nearly a decade. In addition to The Hulkster, a number of WWE Hall of Famers proudly carried the “winged eagle” into battle, including Bret “Hit Man” Hart, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.

WWE Intercontinental Championship Belt
The WWE Intercontinental Championship is a professional wrestling championship created and promoted by the American promotion WWE, currently defended on their SmackDown brand division. It is one of three secondary championships in WWE, along with the United States Championship on Raw and the North American Championship on NXT. The current champion is Sami Zayn, who is in his second reign.
The championship was established by the then-World Wrestling Federation (WWF) on September 1, 1979, after inaugural champion Pat Patterson unified (kayfabe) the WWF North American Heavyweight and South American Heavyweight championships. It is the third oldest championship currently active in WWE, behind the WWE Championship (1963) and United States Championship (1975), but the second oldest tenured championship, as the WWE has only owned the U.S. title since 2001. Although generally contested in the midcard at WWE shows, the Intercontinental Championship has been defended in the main events of pay-per-views including WrestleMania VI, SummerSlam in 1992, the third and eighth In Your House shows, Backlash in 2001, and at Extreme Rules in 2018. It has been called a “stepping stone” to a WWE world championship.
In November 2001, the then-WCW United States Championship was unified into the Intercontinental Championship. In 2002 after the introduction of the first brand split, it became exclusive to Raw and the WWF was renamed WWE. Later that year, the European and Hardcore championships were unified into the Intercontinental Championship, which itself was unified into the World Heavyweight Championship. The next year, it was reactivated for Raw, followed by the United States Championship’s reactivation as a counterpart on SmackDown. In 2019, NXT was promoted as WWE’s third major brand, adding their North American Championship as a third secondary title for WWE. The Intercontinental Championship has switched between brands over the years, usually as a result of the WWE Draft; the 2019 Superstar Shake-up moved the title to SmackDown.
