When WWE Meets MLB – Team-Inspired Replica WWE Championship Titles To Launch In 2022

Another day, another WWE collaboration. This time, the professional wrestling monolith is teaming up with Major League Baseball.

What could MLB have to offer WWE, you ask? Team-centric title belt replicas is what.

On Thursday, WWE announced a multi-year partnership in which it will create team-inspired replica WWE Championship titles. The belts will feature the logos of all 30 MLB clubs. The merchandise, which will launch in 2022 and be available for purchase by all fans, marks the first official licensing agreement for WWE Championship replica titles between the organization and any of the major US sports leagues.

In addition to team-branded replica titles, the two parties will collaborate to design and manufacture belts celebrating major league events including the World Series, All-Star Game and Home Run Derby. MLB and WWE will also create custom sideplates and Lucha Libre masks with team-specific branding.

But this is the first time fans have been able to claim one of the commemorative items for themselves.

“We’ve been continually amazed by the response to the personalized WWE Championship Title Belts, and we’re thrilled that this partnership allows us to make them widely available to fans,” said Kevin Moore, Senior Vice President of WWE. WWE, direct to consumer. Some products.

Although it hasn’t even been 24 hours since news of the partnership broke, at least one other company is already vying to be next in line for a WWE collaboration.

Shoot, Velveeta.
