Major League Baseball and the world’s largest wrestling company reached a multi-year agreement to design and manufacture pieces for baseball fans
In one of the most unexpected deals of 2021, MLB and Wwe They will come together to produce products that every wrestling fan (and many baseball fans) will want to get. Starting in early 2022, the Wwe will begin to design championship belts and plates, masks and other products used in sports entertainment, inspired by the 30 teams of the Big leagues.
The multi-year contract announced by Big leagues and by Wwe, is the first that the wrestling company manages to close with a professional sports league in the United States and will seek to bring fans new types of collectibles from their favorite teams.
The idea obviously arises thanks to the fact that, for years, Wwe has sent replicas of championships with allegorical plaques to champion teams of different professional leagues as a way of congratulating them on their sustained triumph after their corresponding seasons.
