Last night, the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Nashville Predators 2-0 in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals, winning the series 4-2 and capping off a run of back-to-back seasons as the top team in the NHL.
WWE has sent a custom title to the Stanley Cup Champions, long with a personalized tweet from Triple H:

Several superstars also commented on the championship victory:

— The UNKILLABLE Matt Hardy (@MATTHARDYBRAND) June 12, 2017
“The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels is also a Penguins fan, as last season, a group of three of their stars, Carl Hagelin, Nick Bonino and Phil Kessel, became known as the “HBK line.”
I must admit that even though I was pulling for a Game 7, that championship belt looks awesome. It’s always cool for me to see how creative WWE gets when they send custom titles to winning sports franchises. I wonder if it will end up becoming a tradition across all sports platforms? Imagine a golfer holding up a WWE title after The Masters. That would be hilarious.
