Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ championship belt.

We here at El Zonkey Show called it, by exposing the NFL/lucha libre mash-up a while back, and now the cat’s outta the bag after the MVP was awarded an El Santo-approved wrestling belt after leading his team to Super Bowl XLV glory this past Sunday.

A gift from a fan that managed to make its way to field, the WWE (not AAA?) replica belt, is a play on Rodgers’ trademark victory dance.

“You know? the belt’s really caught on,” he said during a Late Show with David Letterman appearance last night.

“It’s just a celebration that started in practice, really,” he continued; “and the fans love it, so you gotta, gotta give ’em what they love.”

Way to go, Hemingway.
