Packers' Rodgers celebrates trophy moment with a belt
If you stuck around past the commercials, the game, and the Alex Rodriguez-Cameron Diaz moment with popcorn, you saw something that is very familiar to wrestling fans.
During the post game show, Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers was wearing a replica of the WWE World Heavyweight title. During the last few years many athletes, especially football players have carried or posed with replica belts. But if anyone deserves to wear the title, it’s Rodgers. The WWE had the image of Rodgers with the title on the front of its homepage.
The real WWE title will be on display in The Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wis. Why? That’s because Raw will be televised live from there tonight. Expect many references to the Packers especially from the faces who will look to score major brownie points with the fans.
Smackdown rolls into Green Bay's Resch Center on Tuesday where the real World Heavyweight Champion Edge will be performing. That's a lot of championships in Green Bay for one week. No wonder they call it Titletown.
