Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma on Friday received a customised World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) championship belt from the Chief Operating Officer, Triple H, for lifting the 2017 India Premier League title for a record third time, beating first time finalists Rising Pune Supergiant.
Just a day after Sharma lifted the title, Paul Michael Levesque, who goes by the ring name of Triple H and the Game, sent congratulatory tweets to the team saying that something special was headed their way: “Congratulations, @mipaltan. @WWE has something headed your way! @WWEIndia.”
Breaking the suspense, Triple H, took to Twitter on July 13 to reveal the customised championship belt with the logo of MI team on the side plates: “[email protected] @ImRo45 as promised, the @WWE Title is on its way… Congratulations! @WWEIndia.”
