While they’re one part decoration and equal parts a bludgeoning device, the championship belts associated with professional wresting – and WWE/WWF in particular – are some of the most unique items in sports entertainment. Enter Dave Millican, who for the last six years has been handcrafting the WWE championship belts out of his garage. In this profile by CNN Money, they explore Millican’s hobby turned business and the various other organizations like the UFC who enlist him for his services. For those looking to add a little hardware to your own collection, you can pick up a Millican original for about $2,000 USD.
