Maybe WWE bought it from him? I can see HHH himself paying big bucks for it. Or maybe he is letting WWE display it this weekend beacuse of Bruno going in HOF

WWE.com has an interview with WWE archivist Ben Brown, about how he went about acquiring the original WWWF title from Dave Millican, who got it after it was discovered in Johnny Barend's attic. He mentioned that Millican wanted "one of a kind" WWE memorabilia in exchange for the title. When asked why was a belt belonging to Buddy Rogers was recognized as the WWE title, he said "The story is that the National Wrestling Alliance had put the NWA Title on Verne Gagne. Vince didn’t think that Verne would draw money in the Northeast territory, so he split off from the NWA and promoted his own champion in Buddy Rogers, who he thought would be a better headliner for that area." Gagne was never NWA champion. It was actually Lou Thesz he was speaking of. In the end, WWE removed that portion of the interview from their website, but you can read the discussion at this link.

Bruno's website posted video of Triple H showing Bruno the original WWWF title belt, which the company's archivist tracked down. The belt had been discovered in wrestler Johnny Barend's attic last year and acquired by belt-maker Dave Millican, so WWE acquired it from him. The belt was on display at AXXESS earlier this year:

I wonder what the one-of-a-kind WWE memorabilia was since that belt was better than WWE could offer IMO (Other than a hell of lot of cash)

Millican is the guy who made all the belts Doc Delaware has. He did a nice job on the Morales/Stasiak/Bruno/Graham/Backlund belt.

I also think he made NWA and AWA (Bockwinkel) belts that looked really good.
