Triple H, COO of WWE and the former WWE Champion has congratulated Mumbai Indians for winning the Indian Premier League 2017. MI won the IPL title for record third time. Triple H not only congratulated MI but also sent a gift to the IPL 10 winners.
Triple H tweeted, “Congratulations, @mipaltan. @WWE has something headed your way! @WWEIndia.” While Triple H did not mention what the gift is but we guess it will be a customised WWE Championship belt with MI’s logo on its side plates.

This is not new from the WWE COO. Recently, he sent a championship belt to Chelsea after they won the 2016-17 Premier League title. The belt had football club’s logo on the side plates. Last year, Triple H sent a similar belt to Cleveland Cavaliers when they won the NBA title in 2016.
It will be interesting to whether Mumbai Indians get the same gift from The Game. It could well be the part of WWE’s marketing strategy. Also Read- Veteran cricketers all praises for Mumbai Indians’ thrilling victory in final
