WWE released their Super Bowl LVIII title belt on Monday after the Kansas City Chiefs secured their second straight title against the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas.
The wrestling promotion awarded the winners of the Super Bowl with a custom belt for several years. As a result, the NFL signed a multi-year licensing agreement with WWE in August 2023, allowing them to sell the belts.
The Chiefs received the belt during their locker room celebrations after the game before it was presented to the NFL and WWE shops. It can also be purchased from Fanatics.
Inspired by the game’s first trip to Sin City, the belt features the Super Bowl LVIII logo within a gold center plate and the word ‘champion’ in gold lettering. The Chiefs’ logo also graces the side plates that sit above the purple and red color scheme.
While the belt is currently priced at $549.99, the stores are offering a limited 25 percent discount that expires Monday at 11:59 p.m.
