The WWE World Championship is one of the most prestigious titles in the world of wrestling and not many wrestlers have had the honor of holding the championship.
Over the years, many big names have held the title. From the likes of Hulk Hogan and John Cena to today’s current champion AJ Styles. Some superstars like Edge and Stone Cold Steve Austin have even had custom championship belts made for them during their reign.
Another superstar that was supposed to have a custom belt was The Rock. This was to respond to Stone Cold’s ‘Smoking Skull’ championship. The Rock was, therefore, to feature his own ‘Brahma Bull’ championship belt, but due to creative reasons it never appeared on TV, until now.

In a recent Facebook post, the WWE showed off some of the memorabilia items from The Rock's time in the company, such as the large Rock sign from WrestleMania 32, a large Brahma Bull steel symbol, a custom Jerry Toliver racing car, and his previous custom championship belts including the custom Brahma Bull championship.
If you skip to the 4:45 mark in the video below, you can listen to WWE archivist Ben Brown talk about the 'Brahma Bull' championship with Cathy Kelley that was made for The Rock, and how the belt never appeared on TV.
The WWE should have found a way for The Rock to debut this belt during his time as The Corporate champion in the late 1990s. It would have been the perfect way for The Corporation to hit back at Stone Cold during their feud.
