Red croc backing was used in 2011/2012 by Daniel Bryan and Sheamus. The strap has been re-leathered by Rey Rey Championship Belts within the last month. The strap is a thing of beauty but the length is a little bit too short for me.The length is about 46 inches. I have posted a picture comparing the length to the original simulated leather strap that came with the metal plates. So if you don't plan to wear this around your waistor if you prefer a shorter strap then you will love this belt. The plates are made of metal and has no damage. If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me. The item "WWE World Heavyweight Championship Belt Real Leather Strap Red Croc Backing" is in sale since Friday, August 19, 2016.
