John Beck has WWE belts in his locker



I've been to one WWE show in my life, and by far the greatest thing about the experience was the number of grown men walking around wearing championship belts, without even a hint of embarrassment. It was majestic. It was like exiting a portal labeled "Normalcy," and entering one labeled "Straight Hot Sauce In Grapefruit Juice Insanity."

But different cultures have different mores, and so it is that Redskins 17th string quarterback John Beck actually has two WWE belts in his locker, according to NBC Washington.

"Champion belts, I brought these over with me," Beck told NBC, starting a series of quotes I didn't understand. "I haven't got another partner yet, I was the champion with somebody else. Maybe Carriker will be my partner, but anytime somebody wants to challenge me, I'll put these belts on the line, whatever it may be. Whatever game it is, I'm already the champion."

It's unclear when this video was shot, or why Beck has two WWE belts in his football locker, or what exactly he's the champion of, but that doesn't really matter, does it? The main takeaway is damn, dude, you really should wear those things when the media is allowed inside. You'd get a lot more interviews.

The real World Champion is Ric Flair.

Ric Flair is no Dr. Death Steve Williams.

Wear it? A 3rd-stringer? That'd be embarrassing. He'll need to lead the league in passing before wearing that. :)

Btw- Beck drops back and moves around the pocket just like Theismann! Hope to see Beck play more one day.
