    Did Ric Flair really send Aaron Rodgers the WWE championship belt? | National Football Post

    The other story from Flair is that he gave it to Kevin Greene when he wrestled and that kevin gave it to Rodgers.

    flair and I went to the same high school and one of my best friends is in the business so I should be able to find this out sometime soon.

    you posted the second link at the same time as i posted that..........

    edit: and now after reading your post, I'm still leaning towards Ric Flair sending it. As this "intern" has no proof what soever.

    Sucks that it has a missing piece to it if it's the one from the intern.

    Looking at the pic (The second one on here) it's impossible to tell where there would be a missing gem stone or whatever. Packers.com, the official website of the Green Bay Packers
    And if the guy is an intern for a news station, shouldn't he have gotten the security guy's name?
    Plus if he's working for the media, it seems like he could have given the belt to A-Rod at a press conference or some other way.

    That looks like a high calibur wrestling belt and very NWA/WCW Flair like in nature. It even has all the snaps. I doubt an intern would have something like that.

    I just assumed the Packers players got it for him. (Not the case.)

    But wherever it came from, that really is an awesome pick of the belt on his shoulder and the trophy in the other hand.

    The WWE is just trying to cash in on him wearing their belt. Very annoying honestly.

    how have they cashed in on it?

    And if they are I would rather have them do that than sue him for improper use of a trademark or something like that. This way they both get something out of it.

    They are using the NFL's greatest brand, the Super Bowl, to advertise their own brand for free. The UFC tried to do the same thing, both knew it would be a great moment for their respective companies to have their belt up there with Lombardi. The WWE had it splashed on their website, I promise you the NFL hates that belt was shown on TV.

    I give you their website giving congrats to arod and the packers but how are they using the SB? As far as anyone knows WWE didnt pay him to wear the belt or give him the belt or encourage him to do anything with a belt. Should they sue Arod for using their trademark? Or should they just let it go, be classy, and say congrats on their website?

    The NFL hates all celebrations, and I am sure are still a little annoyed at Vince for XFL.

    Why would they sue when they got all that free advertising on SB Sunday? Did I mention it was free? That picture is the money shot for SB XLV, the QB lifting Lombardi for the first time always is. The WWE belt was apart of that shot. The WWE is laughing and the NFL are making sure it won't happen again.
