WWE is always on the ball when it comes to jumping on the bandwagon of someone else’s success, regularly gifting custom title belts to championship winning sports teams across the globe.
A few weeks ago WWE gave NBA playoff winners the Toronto Raptors a custom-made WWE Championship belt, they do the same every year to the NFL SuperBowl winners and they have repeated the act today with the England Cricket team.
England won the Cricket World Cup at the weekend in a stunning final, defeating New Zealand in a game that is being talked about as one of the greatest ever.
Capitalising on the hype surrounding the team, WWE has gifted England’s cricketers a custom WWE Title featuring some rather snazzy England decals on the side.
Triple H tweeted:
An incredible tournament, an awe-inspiring final, and a team of worthy champions. Congratulations to @EnglandCricket for winning the ICC Men’s @CricketWorldCup 2019! This custom @WWE Championship is YOURS! @WWEUK pic.twitter.com/hSesoSIwcc

The England Cricket team were appreciative of the gift, tweeting in response:
We'll wear with pride.
And defend it with everything we've got. ??

Look out for England players wearing their new prize around town and at future cricket games at a ground near you in the future . . .
