Triple H Officially Unveiled The NXT North American Championship Belt


It’s almost time for WrestleMania, and if you’re like me, that means you’re getting really excited for NXT TakeOver: New Orleans, which happens the night before.

Everyone has been aware for a while now that there’s a new midcard championship coming to NXT, and last week we learned the full details, that the inaugural NXT North American Champion will be crowned in a ladder match at TakeOver, which will feature Adam Cole, Velveteen Dream, Killian Dain, Lars Sullivan along with two of the newest additions to NXT, Ricochet and EC3.

Today we got our first look at the belt itself, thanks to a social media post from Triple H. In the video at least, it looks pretty great. It features a red leather strap, but the solid metal plate featuring the North American continent gives it an old-school look that makes it totally stand out from the similarly colored WWE Universal Championship and most other belts currently in use by the company.

In fact, the NXT logo appears to be relegated to the side plates, which is different from the other NXT titles, but in a positive way that makes it stand out.

Whoever wins this title on Saturday, it’s bound to be a match to remember. And whether it’s EC3 wearing it with a suit, Lars Sullivan throwing it over one bare shoulder, or Velveteen Dream building an entire new look around it, the winner’s going to look like a true champion in this belt.
