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.

Thanks for the link , CRZ. I caught Bryan Danielson vs. KENTA on YouTube last night, and was very impressed. One of the better technical matches I have seen in a long time. It is rare anymore that you see a match that you could almost think was real.
