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.

Well, that makes one of us. Tonight's Raw wasn't how anybody wanted 2003 to start. Let's take a look at why. THE GOOD -We're Up To 93% Mobility: Randy Orton's return promo was gold and he looks ready to be the heel that Raw really needs.
