After winning the Indian Premier League (IPL), the champion side usually gets a trophy but this year’s winner Mumbai Indians also has a special gift ready for them. After Rohit Sharma-led team had won the 10th season of the Indian Premier League on May 21, WWE superstar and COO Triple H had taken to Twitter and announced that he will soon send a customised championship belt for the team. The wrestling legend once again took to the micro-blogging website on Thursday morning and revealed that the championship belt is on its way. He also posted a picture of the belt on his Twitter account. “.@MIPaltan @ImRo45 as promised, the @WWE Title is on its way… Congratulations! @WWEIndia,” wrote Triple H along with the image of the belt. Interestingly, this is not the first time that Triple H has sent a gift for a sports team or player.
After Chelsea won the English Premier League title earlier this year, Triple H had sent a similar belt to club captain John Terry. Apart from Mumbai Indians and Johny Terry, the Golden State Warriors team was also gifted a similar belt by the WWE legend. They received it as a reward for winning the 2016 NBA Championships.
Here is an image of the belt Triple H sent for Mumbai Indians:
