Josh Reddick is a big WWE fan. That much can be deciphered every time one hears Rowdy Roddy Piper’s theme played as Reddick’s walk-up music at the Coliseum.
And then there’s Reddick’s antics during the team’s photo day Monday at Phoenix Municipal Stadium.
That photo above is of the outfielder on Monday posing with an authentic WWE Championship belt that, according to BANG’s John Hickey, once belonged to Triple H.
Last year during photo day, Reddick was seen sporting a replica belt. This year, he upgraded to the real deal.

“I wore the belt to all the stops here today,’’ Reddick said. “Whether it will make it into any of the photos, I don’t know.’’
However, Reddick’s showiness is already putting the clubhouse in dire turmoil. Via Casey Pratt:
