Reggie Parks, Designer Of Iconic WWF Winged Eagle Championship, Passes Away

The wrestling world has lost another icon, as Reggie Parks, former wrestler and belt creator, has passed away at the age of 87.

Parks spoke in 2001 to Slam Wrestling, speaking about how he got his start in the business.

“I started at a boxing and wrestling club in Edmonton, then Stu Hart took me under his wing. He more or less was the guy that got me going, got me out on the road. He was involved in the promotion in Seattle, Washington area. That’s where I started out. I went from there to Portland, L.A., Texas. I was good enough to create a reputation for myself and then I went from there.”

Parks spoke of his history as a belt maker.

"I’ve made so many for so many people. I’ve made for football players, I’ve made for boxers, Evander Holyfield … the Oakland A’s when they won the world title [and] made one for their manager; Coors Brewery, they’ve done a bunch of belts, Levi Strauss the clothing manufacturer. Anybody that wants a belt, not necessarily have anything to do with athletics."
