Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is still regarded as one of the most popular pro wrestlers in the history of the business. The Rock is also the highest-paid actor in Hollywood as he is undoubtedly a Box Office draw.

It seems there was an interesting reason why he never got his own customized Championship belt in WWE. A new television series, WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures, recently premiered on American network A&E.

While speaking to Entertainment Tonight , Stephanie McMahon talked about many items that are stored in WWE’s warehouse. One of those items is The Rock’s Brahma Bull Championship.

The belt was supposed to debut on television during his feud with ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin. However, the belt was actually lost in the mail for two weeks.

Here you have The Rock’s Championship belt, the Brahma Bull belt. Now, what’s interesting about this is it’s actually never seen the light of day. It’s never been on television. This is really a premium, one-of-a-kind artifact, and it was created during The Rock and Steve Austin’s storyline. Stone Cold had the Smoking Skull belt, and then it was, ‘Well, should The Rock have his own Championship belt?’ and of course yes. This was created, lost in the mail, believe it or not. During those two weeks that it was lost, the decision was made to scrap the whole thing, and The Rock never got his own customized Championship belt, but here it is.”

We certainly wonder how the belt would have been put into play during the feud between The Rock and Steve Austin. Regardless, The Rock didn’t need his own custom Championship belt to prove he was one of the best.
