The London Spitfire Triple H championship belt has been unveiled, and it looks incredible.
Paul “Triple H” Levesque, former WWE World Champion, has brought his tradition to esports. The London Spitfire Triple H Championship belt is the first of the competitive gaming variety.
Triple H’s tribute comes in lieu of Spitfire’s Overwatch League Grand Finals sweep of the Philadelphia Fusion. Spitfire finished the series in dominant fashion by sweeping on Saturday, July 28 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
The London Spitfire Triple H championship belt is designed in the standard WWE fashion. However, the trademark London Spitfire logo adorns the belt on both side plates in a unique addition.
After an exceptional resurgence, history was captured at the @OverwatchLeague’s First Finals. Congrats @Spitfire and @Cloud9! @JackEtienne, this custom title is coming to you! #AcesHigh pic.twitter.com/Pi6wUPgu33

It’s been quite a wild year for Cloud9. In CS:GO, it became the first NA organization to win a major before losing its star player to the new MIBR. In League of Legends, Cloud9 qualified for the 2018 World Championship last week after being the worst team in the NA LCS just three months ago.
The London Spitfire Triple H Championship belt comes with its own rollercoaster ride. The Stage 1 champions fell off a cliff in the second half of the season. After a 3rd place finish in the Stage to playoffs, Spitfire failed to qualify for both Stage 3 and Stage 4 playoffs.
Spitfire picked it up where it counted and ruled the post-season. The Overwatch League Champions now have a belt to prove it.
