The WWE created a special championship belt for Serena Williams after she won her 23rd grand slam this morning. https://t.co/BT5xiAZoEt2017-1-28 16:15:46
Serena Williams made history at the Australian Open on Saturday by capturing her 23rd Grand Slam title. After breaking the Open Era record with a victory over her sister Venus Williams at Melbourne Park, she is cashing in with cool souvenirs.
Michael Jordan already sent her some sneakers and a letter of congratulations. Now, the champion can add more luster to her wardrobe after receiving a personalized WWE title belt.
The wrestling promotion usually sends one to champions from the major U.S. sports leagues, but Williams won't have to share her prize. Some might say she's fortunate to get the World Heavyweight Championship model rather than the newer Universal Championship design.
Then again, this is nothing new for a legend with 23 major trophies in her possession. She's already cemented her status as an all-time great.
