Wrestling giants WWE have slashed the price of one of its most iconic replica title belts for Black Friday.
The company, which took over its long-time rivals WCW in 2001, has had many different world title belts in the last 30 years – but one remains firmly implanted in the hearts of fans everywhere.
The former WCW World Heavyweight Championship, which was later used by WWE as one of two main world titles after its rivals closed, is affectionately known to fans as the “big gold belt”.

And despite not being seen on television for many years, it still remains one of the most popular titles the company ever had – once held by former champions Goldberg, Triple H and Batista.
Taking advantage of the popularity, WWE has now slashed the price of the iconic championships from £180 to just £135 with a special checkout code.
If you use the code WWEBLACKFRIDAY25, you can get 25% off the belt, which would make it the lowest price the golden championship has ever been.
The title first made its rebranded appearance on WWE television in September, 2002, when legendary wrestler-turned-Chief Content Officer of WWE Triple H was handed it during an episode of Monday Night Raw.

The company had split its roster into two separate brands at the time, and the red Raw brand was in need of a champion.
Triple H was hand-picked for the role, but would lose it to Shawn Michaels in a six-man Elimination Chamber match at the Survivor Series PPV just two months later.

The title had 55 different champions during its 11-year run on television, with Randy Orton being the last winner of it.
He beat John Cena in a Tables Ladders and Chairs match at the TLC PPV in December 2013 to unify it with the WWE Championship.
It would end the belts illustrious run on television, which actually began in 1991 when WCW first introduced it.
The original champion for that version of it was Ric Flair, who beat Sting for the-then National Wrestling Alliance championship during a non-televised show in New Jersey.
