As was reported here last month, Hollywood heavyweight the Rock sent a WWE Championship title belt to his fellow Miami sports star Lebron James. James took to Twitter asking how he could get his hands on a WWE title, the Rock responded and promised to hook up the NBA Champion.

The Rock confirmed through his Facebook and Twitter account today, that James did indeed receive the gift

As a birthday gift, I gave my 'little brotha' LeBron James this WWE Championship from my personal collection.

We may grow up to be big ol' boys, but we'll always be kids at heart!

Here's LeBron's response.. ‪#‎KingEyebrow‬

The Instagram from King James’s official account shows him doing his best impression of the Rock and showing off the title belt. The IG video has already been liked over a 171,000 times with many fans of both James and the Rock showing their support.

James showed off his lifelong WWE fandom with the following post.

Special thanks to @therock for making my childhood dream come true! U have no idea how many couches and old mattresses I jumped off thinking I was one of y'all! U, Ultimate Warrior, Sting, Legion of Doom, Goldberg and The Undertaker I could watch all day plus many more! I feel like a little kid again. Thanks again Champ! #CanUSmell #StriveForGreatness

Pro Wrestling Examiner’s Perspective: The Rock may have angered a lot of people here as Lebron James is one of the most divisive stars in the world of sports. Could we see a super celebrity tag team match in the future? This is not the first time we have seen a connection between the NBA and WWE. NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal has flirted with the WWE in the past, getting into an in-ring confrontation with the Big Show on RAW a few years ago, and was heavily rumored to have a one-on-one match with Show at Wrestlemania 28 in Miami back in 2012.
