I love this book, it's absolutely fantastic. It details the circumstances surrounding the original idea for a new NWA championship belt, the actual crafting of the plates, the leather, the nameplates... And also the entire history of the belt: in the ring, in the court room, replacing the strap... You name it, it's here. It answers every question you could ever think to ask.... except one. And unfortunately, it's a biggie:
Where has the belt been all these years?
As mentioned in the book, the original belt disappeared in 2000, and was finally located in 2013. Unfortunately.... that's it. The book provides no information about what happened to the belt or where's it's been all these years. I understand the current owner's desire for privacy, of course, and do not blame the author for this lapse. But it's still a very major flaw in the book.
Don't let this scare you off, though! The photos alone are worth the price of admission, they are absolutely spectacular. And the details of the restoration are extremely interesting.
If you're a fan of the Big Gold belt... Buy this book. You will devour it.
This is a great look into the history of one of the greatest Wrestling belt ever. The pictures and stories are amazing. A must have for any belt collected as the author really does his homework. Any unanswered questions (as to where the belt has been for the last 15 years) is no fault of the author as the current owner wishes to remain anonymous. I assume to prevent the WWE from attempting to claim it as their property?
Been reading it and am amazed at the details in this book. Before i spent 35 on it i debated that being too much but any fan of this belt and the history in wrestling should buy this book. You'll thank me later.
