This is kind an awesome story. So back in 1963, when Bruno Sammartino beat Buddy Rogers for the WWWF title, he was given a brand new belt - and the belt that Rogers had disappeared. Well, someone found it...
For some reason Sammartino never got the original belt from Rogers. Instead, a new one was made, and Sammartino wore that one for the eight years he spent atop the WWWF. So what happened to the first title belt? It had been a mystery, until this week.
Annie Barend, the widow of former WWWF wrestler Johnny Barend, was cleaning her attic in Avon, N.Y., recently when she found a belt wrapped in a bath towel. After some research, Barend discovered that she had stumbled upon Rogers' original belt.
One of the biggest weeks in WCW history has finally come to a close, and even the company is so darned tired out from all this booking that WCW Saturday Night has been condensed to an hour this week. Also, the Braves play at 7:05.
