WWE legend Triple H hands victorious England cricket team a custom-made Championship belt – The Sun
WRESTLING legend Triple H is giving England's history-making World Cup cricket heroes the one prize they thought they could never get – a customised WWE Championship belt!
England's batsmen had struggled to smack down to all corners of Lord's in a low-scoring thriller before they edged out New Zealand in a super over.
But WWE icon Triple H saluted "an incredible tournament, an awe-inspiring final and a team of worthy champions".
England all-rounder Ben Stokes was The Rock with 84 and Jason Roy The Hitman as his scrambled throw enabled Jos Buttler to run out Martin Gupthill and seal victory.
And after Eoin Morgan's men got to grips with the trophy for the first time ever, Talent vice-president Triple H spread some rare love from the other side of the pond for cricket.
The American, a five-time Intercontinental champ who headlined WrestleMania seven times, tweeted a picture of a special belt for the tournament hosts that looked even heavier than a cricket bat.
He wrote: "Congratulations to @EnglandCricket for winning the ICC Men’s @CricketWorldCup 2019! This custom @WWE Championship is YOURS! @WWEUK."
And with the Ashes next up, one fan replied: "England to defend against Australia in a steel cage."
Rising to the dual-sport theme, another said: "England to defend against New Zealand in a no holds barred 2 out of 3 Falls, fall count anywhere match."
Some sports-lovers wondered if Triple H should dish out more unique straps over here.
One tweeted: "Liverpool for winning the @ChampionsLeague ???"
And as Triple H's followers engaged further with the idea, an American man hoped the 49-year-old would extend his honeymoon period for handing out belts until at least autumn.
He said: "Since you’re giving these away, I’m getting married in October, that would be a cool present @TripleH."
More importantly, though, what would England's cricketers get from sport's most-famous Triple if they land their most-wanted double of World Cup and Ashes?
