Reggie Parks: All Bow Down to The King of Belts

Let’s get to the point. Reggie Parks is the King Of Belts. This is not just a saying or a term based solely on respect, it is a FACT.  Mr. Parks, a former professional wrestler, has been in the business of making championship belts for over 40 years for almost (if not every) mayor pro wrestling organization in the world, from the WW(F)E, WCW, NWA, AWA, UWF, Pro Wrestling Noah, Ring Of Honor, and NCW.  

For the uninitiated, Reggie Parks was a very successful wrestler in the Midwestern regional territories in the 1960’s and 1970’s, in which one of his one-screen talents was coming out on television just to perform push-ups on his fingertips with his arms stretched out right in front of him.  Parks finished his professional wrestling career in the mid-1980’s in Arizona and had a brief stint as a referee in the WWF in the southwestern United States during that time period.  Today, Parks resides in Tucson, AZ where he runs a carpet cleaning business and a belt manufacturing business.

Here are some of his more notable championship belts:

NWA/TNA X Division Title
Ring Of Honor Heavyweight Title
“Winged Eagle” WWF Championship Belt
IWGP Heavyweight Champioship Belt

Below are a list of Reggie Parks’ accomplishments during the course of his pro wrestling career

  • NWA (San Francisco) World Tag Team titles w/Enrique Torres defeating Magnificent Maurice & Ed Miller (August 8, 1961);
