Design

The belt is a black leather strap and features a main centre plate and four side plates with touches of kiwiana. Each plate was handcrafted in layers of gold and silver by a team headed by none Reggie Parks, Details on the side plates include an image of New Zealand and the nation's coat of arms, as well as the nation's Kiwifruit. The centre plate features a blank space where a nameplate featuring the current champion's name will be screwed on for each championship reign. According to IPW management, the belt took approximately five months to complete.

Daddy Kool, after delivering the belt to King, told impactprowrestling.co.nz that "The IPW New Zealand Heavyweight Championship has been the most important title in New Zealand wrestling for years and I'm proud to deliver a title belt that represents that fact."
