So I'm watching the Eagles game last week, and I notice that a Philadelphia player twice made the "behold where the title belt would fit around my waist" gesture. This looked like a challenge to Denver's Clinton Portis' running back championship, and I still believe the NFL should have a rushing championship belt at the conclusion of the entire season. Present it at the Pro Bowl, maybe.
So here's my wrestling-related question: Can anyone tell me when this gesture started in the ring? I can recall Taker doing it and maybe even Warrior. Hogan used it when challenging the champ. But who started this? Any ideas? How far back does it go?
Thanks for your time.

Exactly...I felt bad for the kid. I mean, you're big opening promo and you're forced to interrupt (1) a living legend in his new (and pretty heated) battle with (2) Raw's best promo guy. Bad times.Yup -- precicely. We were into Y2J.
