WWE creates unique title belt for Stanley Cup Final

The Edmonton Oilers and Florida Panthers won't be facing off for just the Stanley Cup beginning Saturday (8 p.m. ET, ABC/ESPN+).

They're batting for a WWE championship belt that has the Stanley Cup on it.

WWE has created custom title belts for NHL champions for the past few seasons. But starting this season, that belt will have a more hockey-centric look.

The "WWE legacy belt" features the Cup where the large WWE logo would normally be found, with a hockey rink underneath the front crest. There are WWE and NHL logos on the front. The winning team's logos will be placed on the side plates.

It was reported last December that the NHL and WWE were going to start producing commemorative championship belts for the League's teams.

This collaboration marks the first licensing deal between the NHL and WWE. Replica belts will be available for fans to purchase at the end of the Stanley Cup Final via the NHL's online stores as well as the WWE Shop and Fanatics.

The NHL has had a long history with championship belts, as teams like the Chicago Blackhawks, Phoenix Coyotes and Vancouver Canucks passed around a belt to their player of the game. The Blackhawks' belt even made an appearance at the Stanley Cup parade in 2015.

There's also plenty of NHL love in the WWE. CM Punk is a die-hard Chicago Blackhawks fan. Kevin Owens used to play hockey before becoming a wrestler, while his friend Sami Zayn is a big fan of the Montreal Canadiens -- to say nothing of "The Goon," an infamous hockey-themed wrestler from the WWF days.
