    TRB “Sheik” United States Title

    We made this belt as a movie prop for a film based on the career of the Sheik. The original belt was a cast belt, so there are obvious differences with an etched version. At the client’s request, we made it a three plate belt with simple side plates. We made the gold look like it had some age to it and added the original style cast eagle. Overall, it turned out pretty cool.

      Don’t think the belt made for The Shiek’s movie has any close resemblance to that ,.,. I remember as a young teenager going to see the Shiek many times in small arenas around my home and The Shiek’s US Heavyweight title was a Mulka style casting in the shape and style of the US title worn in the 70’s by Mullgan, Flair, Wahoo McDaniel, and Jimmy Snuka.,,.. on the red (actually pink due to wear) leather backing ,.,.,.

      Sheik held the title off and on from 1963 to 1980.  This is similar to one of the many belts he had.

      I’m pretty sure my local indy is using this and passing it off as the “original”. Of course, the company’s owned and ran by Sheik’s nephew (Captain Ed), so…

      Jay, first “The Captain” Ed Farhat Jr is the SON of The Sheik.  Sabu is the nephew.  Second they are using this belt but not “trying to pass it off as the original” title belt.  This is an update on a belt that the Sheik used in the 60’s and not an exact replica.  So…you have a few of your facts wrong.
