The king of Hollywood and the WWE Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson honored the king of the NBA, the Miami Heat's Lebron James this week by sending him a replica WWE Championship title belt. James with his 29th birthday nearing, had been vocal over the internet about wanting to get his hands on a WWE title belt after seeing Philadelphia Eagles star LeSean McCoy on TV celebrating his rushing title for the year in the NFL. The Rock heard about this, and revealed on Twitter that he had sent the gift to his fellow Miami main eventer.

The Boston Red Sox celebrated this year’s World Series Championship victory with World Heaavyweight Championship replica belts sent by WWE main eventer John Cena. In 2010, the Chicago Blackhawks traded a WWE World title around the locker room as an award for outstanding play in different games throughout their Stanley Cup championship run.
