Meet the second-grader who designed WWE’s new 24/7 Championship belt
Fans of sports-entertainment were unanimously impressed with the timeless beauty of World Wrestling Entertainment’s newly unveiled 24/7 Championship belt, but most people are unaware that the aesthetically captivating prize was designed by an industrious six-year-old boy from Tallahassee, Timmy Simpson.
The second-grader, who was chosen to design the championship due to a clerical error (the request was meant to go to Tommy Simpson, a 61-year-old leathersmith and metallurgist), said he is “weally pwoud” of how the belt turned out.
“It is mostly gween because I weally wove the coloh gween,” said Timmy during an exclusive interview with Kayfabe News.
“Not just any gween — barf and booger gween!” He then burst into uncontrollable giggling.
The 24/7 Championship, revealed by former sock-puppeteer Michaelangelo “Mick” Foley, features a round plate that its designer says “looks like a fwisbee.”
The championship will be defended in much the same way as the now-defunct Hardcore Championship — a title belt designed by an belligerent orangutan.
