WWE Title a slam dunk!
When the Dallas Mavericks prevailed over the seemingly unstoppable Miami Heat to capture their first ever NBA Championship on Sunday night, the Mavs squad clamored for the opportunity to touch the NBA Title trophy as well as another glittering symbol of excellence … “The Belt,” a WWE Title modified with a Mavericks logo.

Maverick players join a long list of professional athletes who are members of the WWE Universe. As for “The Belt,” as it’s simply become known, Texas resident Rami Rassas altered the replica WWE Championship to showcase his team spirit.
"I found this [Mavs] magnet that's pretty big. I cut it out, put it in the belt, got it engraved, and I figured what better way to support my team's run to a championship then with a championship belt," Rassas told his local NBC affiliate of transforming the WWE Title.
Now known as “The Mavs Belt Guy,” Rassas has become somewhat of a celebrity, with Dallas players such as Brendan Haywood and Tyson Chandler gleefully donning the championship.
“It’s kind of developed its own aura,” Rassas told the NBC affiliate.
This isn’t the first time a WWE championship title has figured prominently in a team’s championship run. Earlier this year, after the Green Bay Packers’ SuperBowl XLV victory, quarterback Aaron Rogers carried a replica of WWE’s World Heavyweight Title with him during an appearance on Late Night with David Letterman.
During a postgame interview, Mavericks’ owner and one-time Raw guest star Mark Cuban even hinted that he might not hand out traditional championship rings to his team members.
“Rings are old school,” explained Cuban, who later added, “It’s time to take it to the next level.”
The Champs … are … here?
