As has become tradition, WWE has presented winners of the Super Bowl with their own custom WWE Championship belt, with the honour this year going to the Los Angeles Rams.
the much-anticipated Super Bowl LVI took place in the Rams’ home SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. This is the same stadium where WrestleMania 39 is set to be held in 2023 when WrestleMania goes Hollywood.
The showpiece game of the NFL season featured the NFC Champions the Los Angeles Rams clash with the AFC Champions, the Cincinnati Bengals to determine the 61st Super Bowl champions. Just two years ago, the Bengals were the bottom team in the league and they looked to have a fairytale end to the season by bringing the Vince Lombardi Trophy to Cincinnati for the first time ever.
However, it was not to be, as the LA Rams, competing in their second Super Bowl in four years and led by QB Matthew Stafford on home soil would not be denied victory. Even though the Rams went into the final quarter 20-16 down, Stafford drove his team down the field before finishing off a fine play with a 1-yard pass to Cooper Kupp to seize the victory.

The title belt was not the only wrestling-themed aspect of the Super Bowl as WWE legend and Hollywood megastar The Rock took to the field to provide an electrifying introduction befitting of the occasion.
