WWE Issues Nick Kyrgios And Thanasi Kokkinakis Special Edition Championship Belts After Australian Open Victory

As the first all-Aussie pair to win a home slam since 1997, it only makes sense to fit them out with some shiny new attire.

Wrestling super-fans Nick Kyrgios And Thanasi Kokkinakis have received special edition WWE belts following their doubles victory at this year's Australian Open, courtesy of the WWE.

And if truth be told, the belts themselves looks absolutely class.

Kyrgios And Kokkinakis won over the hearts of the nation as they surged to victory on home soil back in January.

Their run to the final was truly magical, knocking over some of the biggest duos in doubles tennis before finally downing fellow Aussies Matthew Ebden and Max Purcell in the tournament's climax.

The atmosphere that they were able to generate inside the arenas, especially after two-plus years of no live crowds due to the pandemic, was nothing short of remarkable.

There's no doubting that their performances on the court were pure box office entertainment, but fans also took a liking to their actions without a racquet-in-hand, mainly the duo's honest but often hilarious press conferences

Now, to celebrate their historic achievement, the WWE has sent Kyrgios And Kokkinakis two special edition World Heavyweight Champion belts.

The belts also include a bespoke 'The Special Ks' feature on the side, which sits above tow tennis racquets.

As far as championship belts go, these ones are just so clean.

All we need now is for them both to walk out for their next tennis match wearing the belts around their waists while 'The Brothers of Destruction' theme song blasts in the background.

Yes please.
