Former WWE Champion and the COO of WWE, Triple H has congratulated the 2017 IPL winners Mumbai Indians for winning the competition for the record third time and has sent a gift for the Rohit Sharma-led team after their historic achievement.
Triple H, who is a 14-time WWE Champion himself, tweeted, “Congratulations, @mipaltan. @WWE has something headed your way! @WWEIndia“.

In case you didn’t know, The tenth edition of the IPL came to an end with Mumbai Indians beating their Maharashtra derby rivals Rising Pune Supergiant by 1 run in the finals at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium in Hyderabad. With this win, Mumbai Indians created history by becoming the first team to win three IPL trophies while their captain Rohit Sharma became the first player to win four IPL titles and the first captain to win three IPLs.
In the tweet, the King of Kings mentioned that something is headed Mumbai’s way and in all likelihood, it will be a WWE championship title with MI’s logo on its side plates. The side plates are traditionally adjusted to include the name of the current titleholder in WWE.
This is not the first time Triple H is doing such a thing. He wished Cleveland Cavaliers when they won the NBA title in 2016 and sent them a WWE belt with their logo on the side plates.

We saw WWE superstars Big E Langston and Kofi Kingston in the Extraa Innings T20 studio this year. WWE is willing to increase their market in India and the COO’s step will help them in doing that. But this is not the first time he has done that.
