The Ultimate Warrior has put many of his WWE items on auction at eBay, including his one-of-a-kind blue WWE Title belt that was made just for him. The bidding for the belt starts at $23,500.

Here's the link:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=31678&item=5117563791

No bids yet. Gee, I wonder if the insane starting bid has anything to do with it? He's also selling some of his ring gear and an autographed action figure.

You can certainly tell from the description box on the page that Warrior is the one selling it. Not only is it wordy beyond all description, but he also takes a dig at someone in it.

He said about 6-7 times in a row that the belt he is auctioning is the only colored (non-black) WWF title belt ever worn (besides the IC title).

Here's a screen cap from March 30, 1998, the night after Austin won the title from HBK at WM14 (Taken from "Monday Night Wars" DVD):



Looks pretty damn blue to me. Here's a blown-up view:



Alrighty then.

Good grief...that's enough to buy a fairly nice car and the BUY IT NOW price is for a REALLY nice car. So, anybody here feel the POWER of the WARRIOR calling you, do you have an urge to sell your soul to WARRIOR? That is about what that auction looks like.

***EDIT***
Yeah, the ORIGNAL WWF Pre-Attitude belt was on dark blue leather. WARRIOR had that sky blue one. I alway wondered if that belt was still around...now I know. It's for sell.

***EDIT TWO***

Umm...other than the IC?!?

Frankly, I found it even more interesting that the only thing Warrior has been buying on ebay was flower seeds. Does the Warrior plant flowers - does he see love where, anyone else sees weeds?

Suckers gots to know.




Now, is it ok for me yell THEATRE! in a crowded fire?

I'm glad I'm not the only one who checked that out as well. I'm not sure if it's disturbing or not.

Also, the cover of my copy of Wrestlemania VII has Sgt. Slaughter holding a powder blue WWF heavyweight title belt.

I like this quote from the Warrior about the belt on Ebay:

"If you don't have the money for such a classic, historical One-of-a-Kind piece, don't advertise it by forwarding your unwanted opinion. Others will know how cheap you really are."

So apparently people that don't want to spend 25 thousand dollars on a wwf title belt are "cheap". That's hilarious.

Doesn't really count, but Hogan had a white-leathered title belt in No Holds Barred.

:P

Well, isnt that the one he won from the Warrior at the Rumble prior to WM 7? I guess he was too lazy to change it. I wonder if said "ULTIMATE WARRIOR" still on the side like it shows in the auction.

Man, I thought that $3,500 for the Reggie Parks belts over at wrestlingsuperstore.com was high. But Ultimate Warrior had to go an out do it. $25,0000!?!?!?!?! That's ridiculously insane. I wonder how many people will actually bid on this? And by bids, I mean serious bids.

The actual design of the old WWF world title belt (colours aside) puts the new ones to shame. Bring back the old design, WWE! Same with the IC title as well!

But in all fairness, those are two different belts. Warrior is right that the model he's selling wasn't worn in different colors by other wrestlers.

What about the one Slaughter has on the video cover? Unless that video cover was altered, that's not the same color as the belt Warrior is selling.

Actually, and you're going to laugh, but no. And it's right there on the tape, but the belt that he wore at RR 91 and lost to Slaughter was not blue, but somewhere in the pink or lavender family. Which is funny becuase you see Slaughter parading around a title that looks like something Adrian Street would have had.

EDIT: Although I think at the time I was too busy participating in a BULLSHIT chant to notice what color the belt was...but I've seen it on the tape since then. :)

    Someone wrote me asking if they had to accept the authenticity on '"faith" alone. Of course not. You get all the verification upfront that you need and as long as I am alive, I will be gladly available to verify its authenticity.


Lets see how this works:

Me; "Is this real?"
Ultimate Warrior; "Yes"
Me; "How do I know?"
Ultimate Warrior; "Because I said so."
Me; "How can you prove it's real"
Ultimate Warrior; "Because I said it was, it must be."
Me; "Is that all you can give me?"
Ultimate Warrior; "I said, it is real."


I find it funny to read he will gladly be available to verify its authenticity as long as he is alive. I can see it now, *RING RING* "HEY WARRIOR! I'm at my favorite bar, I got the belt on. This guy says it's fake, tell him its real!"

CLICK.

Or if your house burns down with said $25,000 blue title belt.

Trying to explain the value to an insurance claims inspector would be a real sight to see.

On the side of the belt, it has the WWF logo and "ULTIMATE WARRIOR" engraved on it. He also claims that it is a ring-worn belt. I don't remember the wrestler's name ever being on the belt like the NWA title had that plaque. Was it always this way?

I guess it's such a minor, small part of the belt, so it's not a big deal.

Warrior had a few different belts. The one he's selling is blue. The one Slaughter has on the video cover is purple, and that is the same one that he won from Warrior at the Royal Rumble. Warrior also had a white belt. I don't believe Slaughter ever "wore" Warrior's purple belt, they may have just taken that picture backstage after Slaughter won it.

I remember during Shawn Michael's initial runs as IC champion, he had a different coloured belt depending on what outfit he was wearing.

Can anyone else verify this, or am I imagining things?

The WWF Re-Release WMVII version that Whitebacon posted is a bit different to the Coliseum version one. I happened to have the coliseum one laying around so I scanned it:

Did they edit the strap on the re-release?
