As has become tradition in recent years, the WWE celebrated the Cleveland Cavaliers winning the NBA championship Monday night by sending them a customized WWE World Heavyweight Championship title. WWE has been sending titles to champions dating back to last year.

The Cavaliers became the first NBA team to ever crawl back from a 3-1 deficit in the Finals and claim the championship. NBA Finals MVP LeBron James — a noted WWE fan — practiced in an old school Undertaker shirt last week, with WWE website covering it with a headline stating, “Ready for a comeback.” Good call.

Keeping with the WWE theme, during the raucous championship celebration in the Cavaliers’ locker room, Cleveland big man Kevin Love channeled his inner Stone Cold Steve Austin by chugging a few beers in an Austin 3:16 shirt.
Love also donned the shirt during his post-game press conference with the media as well. As the team returned from California to Cleveland with the trophy Tuesday, LeBron James emerged rocking an Ultimate Warrior shirt.
