The best thing about winning the World Series is that WWE is sure to send a customized replica title to the champions to help commemorate the achievement. So it’s only natural that WWE enters into a partnership with Major League Baseball to start selling these custom replica titles to fans. WWE and MLB announced a multi-year licensing agreement to do just that, starting in 2022:
Major League Baseball and WWE announced today a multi-year partnership to create MLB-inspired WWE Championship replica titles and accessories featuring the logos of all 30 MLB Clubs from around North America. The new line of merchandise launches in 2022, marking the first time these items have been available for fans. This is the first official licensing agreement for WWE Championship replica titles between WWE and one of the major U.S. sports leagues.
As part of the agreement, MLB and WWE will collaborate to design and manufacture team-branded replica titles as well as replica titles that celebrate some of the league’s Jewel Events such as the World Series, All-Star Game and Home Run Derby. Additionally, the two sides will create custom side plates and unique Lucha Libre masks.
“At MLB we are constantly looking to serve our fans with the most unique products possible so that they can support their favorite Clubs and players in the ways they want,” said Denis Nolan, MLB Senior Vice President, Global Consumer Products. “We often see baseball fans and players bringing their MLB and WWE fandom together at games and online, so this is a natural development for us to work together and offer the highest quality, official co-branded items for fans around the world.”
“We’ve been continually amazed by the reaction to custom WWE Championship title belts, and we’re excited this partnership will allow us to make them widely available to fans,” said Kevin Moore, WWE Senior Vice President, Direct-to-Consumer Products.
So whether you are a fan of a team that never makes the World Series like the Seattle Mariners, a team that usually chokes down the stretch like the New York Mets, a team with a terrible future outlook like the Colorado Rockies, or a team that can’t make the playoffs even with Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani on the roster like the Los Angeles Angels, here’s your chance to finally share in the fun of custom WWE championship replica titles that your favorite team has little to no chance of ever bringing home.
Do you plan on buying any of these replica titles, Cagesiders?
