Belts: A Love Story 2

Welcome to the second installment of Belts: A Love Story. The second belt I wanted to focus on, is another of my all time favorites, The NWA United States Championship.
I remember seeing Magnum TA and Nikita Koloff battling in the epic best of 7 series for this title, which if you can find these matches they are well worth your time.
The US title was the title that was second only to the World title. Over the years many great wrestlers  such as Nikita Koloff, Magnum TA, Barry Windham, Stan Hansen, and my favorite US Champion Lex Luger held this particular version.
What stood out for me with this version was simply how pretty it was. This was the first belt I wanted to own even as a kid because it looked like a championship.
Needless to say when I was able to add it to the collection I jumped at the chance.
Until next time..

  1. This championship is a fantastic design and, quite frankly, the best design ever for the United States Championship. When i think of this design I relate it to Lex Luger, no doubt.

  2. Love this choice. It’s one of my all-time favorites as well. The Best-of-7 series you mentioned between Magnum T.A. and Nikita Koloff were memorable and played up as a huge deal on television. I can still remember when they showed one of those bouts on an episode of NWA Pro one Saturday. I was glued to the television!

    1. Thanks for your comment. I have very fond memories of the best of 7. Looking back wrestling gave us so many great matches on tv. Again thanks for reading and commenting
