Shawn Michaels Advertised For More Upcoming WWE Shows, WWE Acquires Original Title Belt
- WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels is now being advertised for several additional upcoming WWE live events. Here’s a look at his upcoming WWE schedule:
* 5/24 – WWE Live Event from Salt Lake City, Utah (HBK Appreciation Night)
* 5/25 – WWE Live Event (Red Deer, Alberta)
* 5/26 – WWE Live Event (Lethbridge, Alberta)

- WWE.com has published a new interview with WWE archivist Ben Brown, who talks about how he recently acquired the original WWWF Championship belt from belt maker Dave Millican.
Regarding why the title belonging to Buddy Rogers was recognized as a WWE title, Brown Said:
“The story is that the National Wrestling Alliance had put the NWA Title on Verne Gagne. Vince didn’t think that Verne would draw money in the Northeast territory, so he split off from the NWA and promoted his own champion in Buddy Rogers, who he thought would be a better headliner for that area.”
To correct their error, it was actually Lou Thesz they were speaking of, as Verne Gagne was never NWA champion.
In exchange for the title, Millican received undisclosed “one of a kind” WWE memorabilia.
