Nothing says celebrating winning back-to-back championships in a real sport like the gift of a championship belt from a fake sport.
LeBron James surprised the Heat locker room today with a replica of the World Wrestling Entertainment heavyweight championship belt for every player.
"Always wanted to be the WWE Heavyweight World Champion so today I surprised my teammates with their own for their collection," wrote LeBron. "And by the way it's a Great time to be a @WWE fan with the launch of #WWENetwork."
Hmm, wonder if he got a deal on those belts for the promo?
LeBron's love of the WWE is well known. In fact, for his last birthday Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson gave LeBron his own version of the belt.

Rumors have always swirled that LeBron may one day make his way into the squared circle for a round of wrasslin' himself, but so far those have proven to just be rumors.
Much like a lucha libre wrestler, however, LeBron will be wearing a mask soon. It's to protect his broken nose.
